Episode 209 – Holiday Sales Skill Wishes

Episode Overview

As we approach the end of the year, the thoughts of gifts and what next year might bring come to mind. Susanna poses a question that encompasses both of these things. If your gift this year was to be given a choice of one extraordinary sales skill to use in 2023, what would it be? Gina and Susanna both share what they would choose and why.

This leads to various introspective and informative discussions including the power of being good enough, increasing your success by using the resources you already have around you, avoiding burnout, running toward your fears, how to avoid letting whining (or whinging in the UK) overtake you, and contemplating if the use of humor is a tactic to disarm others or a way we arm ourselves?

More About Susanna

After graduating from Cambridge University in Music and Education, Susanna took her first sales role selling advertising space on websites.

She’s always been intrigued by the unfair negative stigma associated with sales and the way that after their initial excitement to work in sales, people will do everything they can to avoid actual prospecting.

With 14 years of experience in recruitment, Susanna challenges this mindset through her successful business sourcing sales professionals into recruitment roles.

Susanna decided to become a Sales Gravy Master Trainer because Sales Gravy’s vision matches her own beliefs and values.

She is committed to providing excellence and dedication to all of her trainees so that they can achieve their goals and succeed in sales.
