Head of Customer Engagement
I was thrust from a technical expert role into a Head of Sales position. I needed to build a sales strategy, establish a structure, source and deploy technologies to enable success (CRM and Pipeline), recruit various roles, AND begin producing immediate wins.
From the first meeting Patrick disarmed my concerns. He connected with my values, and crafted a personal coaching strategy to ensure success. Within weeks I had my strategy built and had had my core functions established and operating in a month. Within a year we were winning 83% of our opportunities! I can't recommend Patrick enough if you’re looking for an incredibly experienced, strategic minded and empowering coach who can provide you a sureness of success without any of the BS!
