Apparently their is some confusion about District 7620’s Sandler Polio Fundraiser. For some startling reason, Rotarians seem to think this one day seminar, run by Sandler, is all about sales. And that’s because Sandler runs one of the most well-respected sales trainings programs in the business. Well, my dear RFA readers, think again. This one day seminar is all about being a superior person, growing your ability to stand strong in the face of adversity, and about building your self-confidence, and the self-confidence of others. It’s about how to manage your emotions, how to be more empathetic, and how to be a better communicator. It’s about hiring better people and growing your business. And yes, at some point during the day you will pick up a few tips about how to sell. If you, or anyone you know, might want to improve at any of the above, you (they) really should consider attending.
In case you are slightly confused about the need for Sandler Sales Training, either in your business, in a business that you know of, or that is owned by your brother-in-law, I thought I would share a video of a recent sales call gone bad. Just think, this guy could have gone to the Sandler Traing Seminar, closed the sale, AND contributed important money to fund our campaign to End Polio Now.
Pretty good, huh? NOTE: Chris Farley and David Spade, Tommy Boy (1995) I love this clip but I’m glad I didn’t see the movie.
As I say, the one day seminar is not just for sales people. If you know of a small business that has employees that are in customer service, customer relations, or have management responsibilities, they would benefit. My company, Pinnacle Advisory Group, is in the private wealth management business and we are sending seven employees to the all-day seminar on Wednesday, October 15th at the Charlestown- Erickson Conference Center. Who are we sending? Wealth Managers who are responsible for asking clients for referrals, client service staff, and two of our managers. Why is this a good investment for our firm? Because they could all benefit from the training, AND because we are getting world class Sandler training at a price point that is so inexpensive that it’s ridiculous.
Here is one of my favorite customer service clips. Too bad this customer service provider obviously wasn’t a Sandler graduate:
In case you were wondering, the moral to this clip is that if you send yourself, or someone you know to our one day Sandler Training seminar, we will raise money for Polio and whoever attends will never again have a problem with a car reservation.
OK….more details. Charlestown has donated the space for the training, so every penny we raise from the seminar goes to fight polio. The cost (after September 15th) is only $350 for the whole day including lunch. Our donations are matched 2-1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation so if we raise $20,000 from the Sandler event we send $60,000 to the front lines of Polio Eradication. If you need more information check out the flyer on the District 7620 website or call DG Bill Fine directly.
I know this is Rotary and we do everything at the last minute. The last minute has arrived. Let’s sell this thing out and raise big money for Polio eradication.
