On today’s Word on the Street episode, Katie speaks to Guy Edwards, Founder of Blackbird Agency.
Guy is a salesperson and trainer with 16 years of experience, a good proportion of that working on agency propositions, Guy is passionate about outbound sales.
By his own admission, he is wildly impatient and as a result developed a sales process that whilst supporting the prospect's decision, both qualifies their value to the salesperson and moves them through the process to close quickly.
Guy started in a clients services role many years ago but soon realised that sales was his "jam" and never looked back.
If he was to sum it up - "Sales is at its core asking the right questions and then actually listening to the answers".
Guy trains business owners, sales professionals and teams alike across the UK.
In his spare time, he is a passionate outdoorsman, fly fisherman, father to his son George and more than a bit fond of good food and wine.
He strongly believes that salespeople need to train and keep their skills sharp. They are the beating heart of any business.
