  • Columbia Winery- 14030 NE 145th St, Woodinville, WA 98072


 Sales for Event Professionals

Mitch Taylor believes Success is in Serving, not Selling.  He works with Event Professionals who have the challenge of connecting with clients and closing sales.  He teaches ways to research prospects most effectively, what questions to ask before talking about anything, positioning yourself as an expert so your clients recognize you for it, and creating a new way to present your services at the close.  

**Since this is our October meeting, costumes ARE encouraged**

Speaker:  Mitch Taylor of Taylored Sales  

Mitch helps attendees break down the sales process and learn how to build stronger relationships that helped him grow his event company into a six-figure business in a town so small the nearest Starbucks was 60 miles away until they finally opened one in April of this year.  A Jeffrey Gitomer licensed trainer, his mission is to help people succeed and help them find new ways to GIVE VALUE FIRST.  He is the author of S.A.L.E.S. 4 Event Pros, co-author of Creating Connections:  31 Days to Building Stronger & Deeper Relationships, and producer of a weekly podcast of the same name and a weekday motivational Facebook Live segment, #LiveAt755.
