Jeffrey Gitomer's Speech Descriptions

Salespeople and people who serve customers are looking for new information about their everyday situations, interactions, opportunities, problems and challenges. In short - anyone attending a seminar, workshop or keynote is looking for answers.

Speaking and training coast-to-coast more than 150 times a year, Gitomer provides answers, informs, challenges and entertains sales forces and customer service departments for companies like Sprint, Sony, Northwestern Mutual Life, Inc. Magazine, XEROX, Time Warner Cable, Deloitte & Touche, Federal Express, and Milliken.

Gitomer′s seminars and workshops focus on self-evaluation in each area of training. The attendee learns to change listening and learning habits from the traditional "I know that" to the 21st century strategy, "How good am I at that?" Each participant walks away with new understanding and an individualized game plan for action (and success).

What′s the objective of your next sales conference? How do your customers recognize the difference between you and your fiercest competitors? How are you ensuring that you achieve the difference between a satisfied customer and a loyal customer? What′s the difference between event-based training and personalized results-based training?

Jeffrey Gitomer customizes and personalizes each speech for every company and industry that he addresses. In his lectures, he covers real world examples of business successes, including earning referrals, networking, loyalty, buying motives, and relationships.

    A new and impactful book on leadership from the perspective of leaders

    What makes a leader relevant? It′s not their place of employment, job title, experience, or status in life′it′s their resilience.

Ideas and answers are provided for every challenge.

    • Chapters include information about the 12.5 leadership strengths: From insights to legacy and every element in between. Morale, Attitude, Resilience, Opportunity, Guts, Measurement, Coach, Celebration, Next-level, and Lost Secret of Leadership

    • Other books by Gitomer: The Sales Bible: The Ultimate Sales Resource, Revised Edition, also by Wiley, The Little Red Book of Selling (Bard Press) The Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude (Pearson)
