“Greg’s LinkedIn masterclass did exactly what it said on the tin! I thought I was pretty clued up on how to use LinkedIn but came away from the day with a head full of information and a book full of actions – always a good sign after a day’s training.”

Greg ran a series of in-house small groups workshops with key stakeholders – about 60 staff in total.

Social Selling/Sales Navigator

Sales is changing. 90% of decision makers say they don’t respond to cold outreach and 60% of the buyer journey is typically complete before the buyer engages with a supplier. LinkedIn and the optional Sales Navigator prospecting tool provide ways for savvy sales people to find and engage the buyer at the earliest stage in the cycle when the buyer is still gathering information – or even before.

In only about 6 months since Greg trained our team to use LinkedIn effectively, I can only say that the results have been astonishing and I would heartily recommend Greg to any business team looking to use social media to reach more clients. Greg has always been there for us since the training too and frequently offers tips and insights along the way.
