This presentation will show you how to prepare your employees for high productivity and your company for maximum profitability. Learn how to grow a well-trained, educated and motivated team. Dr. Nido Qubein makes an important point: Teaching people skills without giving them a vision for a better future—a vision based on common values—is only training. He goes beyond dictionary definitions to show that yesterday’s thinking looks at the tasks people perform today and asks “How can we train our future employees to do these things?” Tomorrow’s thinking looks at the kind of people needed to execute corporate strategy and finds ways to educate employees to become those kind of people.

To sell effectively in today’s ever-changing, competitive world, one must master sales skills and behavioral knowledge. Dr. Nido Qubein teaches both with humor and audience involvement. He focuses on the Law of Identification (when something becomes personal it becomes important; treat every customer as if you’re about to lose them) and teaches participants to ask penetrating questions (how must this person feel first so that this person will buy from us?). Dr. Nido Qubein emphasizes: Prospects don’t want to buy your product; they want to buy the product of your product. Remember: Your service and product must be better than your competitors and your customer must readily acknowledge that.

Through the years I have had the good fortune to hear many speakers, including both former Presidents Bush, General Norman Schwarzkopf and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. You are without a doubt the best speaker I have ever witnessed. The moment you stepped onto the stage you commanded the room and you captured the hearts of our audience. Your remarks were perfect for the occasion.”
