Turning Conversations Into Sales
Learn three core principles that will help you accelerate your business growth and generate more revenue in alignment with your core values around service.

In this engaging 1.5 hour workshop, we will cover the 3 Pillars of Sales Success: Strategy, Mindset and Leading Through Sales using a servant leadership framework. You will learn to connect purposefully with others and create a container to build a shared vision for what working together would look like and move from exploration to closing a sale.

We will engage in purposeful networking and go deep to uncover what is keeping us from reaching our full potential, generating more revenue and making the impact in the world that we are meant to!

After participating in the hands-on group program, you will be able to:
  • Up-level your goals and mindset to take your business to the next level
  • Learn a strategy and mindset shift that makes pitching and networking easier
  • Unlearn old stories about “selling” and “chasing” opportunities so that you create a new approach to landing your ideal client or opportunity
  • Practice pitching and “selling” in a supportive peer partnership model
  • Connect authentically and deeply with other business professionals and create win-win partnerships and opportunities


I will also be sharing a powerful peer support and accountability framework that I use with all of my clients and students around the world.

Every person who attends this workshop will walk away with 3 Free Gifts that I use with my most high level clients. You can use these tools for yourself, your team and those in your personal life to support them in aligning with their full value and vision of success.

This is going to be an incredible session that is filled with energy and practical hands-on skill building.

I cannot wait to see you there!
