About Speaker Gopal RajGuru…
Gopal RajGuru is a keynote speaker, consultant, business educator, university professor, as well as sales performance improvement, and leadership development coach based in Geneva Switzerland. With more than 35 years’ experience leading and consulting successful companies in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, Gopal brings his years of experience and common-sense approach to help clients improve their business-to-business sales performance while deepening and broadening their leadership capabilities to create sustainable high performance.
As a keynote speaker, Gopal consults with the organisation’s leaders to create a message uniquely tailored to their specific needs and delivers an energetic and engaging speech to inspire and motivate the audience to start their own personal change process. His pragmatic, down-to-earth style translates theoretical concepts into pragmatic elements that are easy for the audience to understand and implement.
His passion for sales, leadership and innovation is evident in his engagement with the audience, as he challenges them to think differently and move out of whatever «box» they see as their limitation. He motivates audiences by connecting the message to their reality with pragmatic elements that they can implement in their own lives and work so everyone takes something with them beyond the speech.
Having led a multinational $100m sales organisation himself, Gopal understands the challenges leaders face in finding the right people, getting them up-to-speed quickly, setting the right expectations, monitoring performance, providing helpful and appropriate feedback, disciplining when necessary, and keeping the team focused and motivated to achieve the organisation’s goals. Leveraging that experience, he and his partners have identified, created, and integrated concepts + tools to improve leadership skills, organisational alignment, sales performance, co-innovation capabilities + negotiation skills to help them deliver sustainable profitable growth.
As an adjunct professor in multiple EMBA programs Gopal brings his pragmatic knowledge of sales and leadership to students in the Master of Technology (MoT) program at the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne, as well as GFKM, the Gdansk Business School. He also works with Aalto University’s Executive Education division to create custom-designed programs for a broad range of clients on topics ranging from customer experience to innovation, to leadership and much more.
