The old adage that “everyone’s a winner” certainly rang true at a recent network luncheon the Greater Kendall Business Association (GKBA) held at Palms Golf and Country Club.
As well as providing businesses with an enterprising forum in which to network and build profitable relationships, GKBA’s luncheon gave one lucky member a $2,000 prize, consisting of free Sandler sales training courtesy of Absolute Sales Development Inc.
Claimed by Joy Schaaffe, a certified OED (Organization for Entrepreneurial Development) advisor, the prize was presented by founder and president of Absolute Sales Development Inc. Antonio Garrido who recently joined the GKBA and is now a member of the association’s Education Committee. The sales training will commence early this year and will extend to several of OED’s leading clients.
“Being a member of GKBA has certainly helped boost my business connections and develop relationships with a diverse range of companies,” Schaaffe said. “It has also provided a platform from which to promote the services of OED and our mission to help entrepreneurs with the resources necessary to establish, grow and profit from their businesses.”
She added, “To have scooped a sales training prize from Absolute Sales Development Inc., based on the USA’s leading sales development and management training system, is quite simply the icing on the cake and will be greatly appreciated by my clients and myself.”
Commenting on Schaaffe’s win, Garrido said, “We are delighted to welcome Joy and her clients to our popular sales training program. As well as helping these individuals pinpoint the bottlenecks in their business which hampers sales and business growth, we will be helping them get their business on the sales-driven path for 2014 and beyond.
“Based on a proven and hugely successful business development methodology, the Sandler approach challenges the traditional approach to selling and marketing products and services,” Garrido added. “It is not only refreshing and exciting, it is one that will deliver significant lasting results.”
