My philosophy is to do much more than spend the day reciting motivational quotes and theory. I believe in "substance", not show. My training format is personalized. I will have direct interaction with each individual. Your salespeople will listen to me - they will relate. Relate is the key word.
I have been a sales representative for Bill Gatton Honda-Nissan in Bristol, Tennessee for 39 years. Good fortune has certainly come my way throughout this period. After graduating from King College in 1981 with a degree in business and economics, I entered a profession in which I have made a career - selling cars. As a matter of fact, I have developed the position to one of a business within a business.
In February, 1993, my desire to share my approach with others led to the formation of the Chip Thomas Sales Development Company which has evolved into Chip Thomas Consulting. I am still selling full time and although I have had multiple offers to pursue management or a franchise partnership (for reference or confirmation, contact Mr. Bill Gatton at 423.764.5121 ), I declined these opportunities because I had a different dream. My ultimate goal was sales training and consulting which I have now conducted for over 27 years.
I have the knowledge, expertise, and communication techniques necessary to develop and improve other salespeople, in any field.
My philosophy is to do much more than spend the day reciting motivational quotes and theory. I believe in "substance", not show. My training format is personalized. I will have direct interaction with each individual. Your salespeople will listen to me - they will relate. Relate is the key word. They will relate to me because I'm real.
Lack of productivity in many cases is not due to lack of knowing what to do - it is in lack of implementation. Lack of implementation is due to lack of self-motivation. This is what is unique about my sales training and consulting. Your staff will become more motivated because they will see that I do this very successfully each day in today's market - I continue to sell an average of 4 days each week. Therefore, it is believable and it is real. The instructor's credibility and perspective directly influences the student's receptiveness.
There are plenty of sales books and videos: but let's face it, most salespeople do not take the initiative to utilize this material. They will listen to me and how I do it. Why? Because I'm a regular person just like most of them. They will say, "If he can do that, so can I!"
My dealer, Mr. Bill Gatton, approves and endorses my sales training and consulting. As a matter of fact, he is a client, contracting my services to conduct seminars at his stores in Tennessee, Alabama, and Texas.
When you choose to sign up with me, be assured I will do my best to improve your staff and make them better. You will see the results and reap the benefits.
The members of your organization will be AMAZED that the seminar instructor is still a retail automotive salesperson. They will become inspired, influenced, and motivated beyond belief.
