With 27 years of in-the-field B2B sales experience in the technology industry, Larry knows what it takes to be successful. He’s successfully sold office technology, document management solutions, and managed services to customers ranging from up-and-down the street accounts for Fortune 500 companies.
After a conversation with a current customer about LinkedIn, Larry became fascinated with this emerging network of business people. He started experimenting with LinkedIn in his copier sales process. During this time, he learned from trial and error what works and what doesn’t work
In the fall of 2013 Larry accepted a new challenge as a major account rep for a Japanese OEM in Los Angeles, one of the most competitive markets in the world. He walked into a zero base territory with no MIF to flip. Using his LinkedIn sales strategies he booked $1.3 million in hardware sales in 2014 and left behind a $1.6 million pipeline for the next rep to develop.
Now Larry coaches B2B sales professionals to do what he did. Since 2015 Larry has coached both quota-busting tenured reps and green millennials just beginning their careers. Both appreciate the practical nature of his coaching.
Technology and sales enablement tools are not only helping sales professional’s gain momentum in their marketplace, they’re also changing the way they sell their services. Selling successfully in a digitally driven, highly networked and socially empowered business world takes a new mindset and skill set.
