This immersive 3-day boot camp features three founding faculty members of Contractor University powered by EGIA: Gary Elekes, Weldon Long and Drew Cameron. This fast-paced, highly engaging format is designed to empower anyone who is involved with the sales process – whether you need to learn best practices and brand new strategies for the first time, brush up on your kitchen-table skills, or beyond.
The boot camp will be interactive with idea-sharing, presentation tips and techniques that allow attendees to provide input, start discussion and ask questions as they arise. Best of all, attendees in this boot camp will get the chance to actually roleplay and roundtable presentation ideas to their peers to learn what works and how to immediately implement those successful tactics into their sales toolkit.
The premise of this workshop is how to differentiate yourself from your competition through 3 states of being:
