Dino introduced our speaker Frank Soma. Mr Soma is an author/ motivational speaker/consultant focused on creating rapport for the purpose of successful communication in sales. He wrote a book called B2B but really P2P. He mentioned People BUY People and discussed how to get your message heard…first create rapport…be a good listener…create trust which leads to likability. The biggest mistake sales people make is not being authentic, trying too hard and going too fast. Ask questions and listen.
8:40: Dino closed the meeting.
