Sales Training

Sales Training and sales learning is a lifelong journey. The art of selling is not a perfect science. The basic skills are taught; Prospecting, Presenting, Negotiating, Confirming, Supporting, and Closing regardless of industry or product, the process is the same. The more expensive the product the more intricate the process and in many cases the more lengthy. The selling process is an imperfect science because it includes a sometimes very unpredictable element, human nature. Our objective in our training is to teach the scientific concepts of prospecting, presenting, negotiating, confirming, supporting, and closing by utilizing real life experiences to illustrate, discuss, and explore resolutions and answers to different questions and scenarios, that arise in the selling process. You will learn the true meaning of “Your Million Dollar Sales Success”. Learn More

Leadership Development

Leaders are Environmentalists. As a leader in a business environment we are charged with the responsibility of molding, mentoring, and encouraging those individuals we are entrusted to lead. We are Environmentalists, yes, “Leaders are Environmentalists” it is our responsibility to create an environment that encourages people to strive for excellence, think outside the box and push themselves to new heights by thinking outside the box, taking calculated risks, without fear of reprisal. Our Leadership training course teaches the aspects of leadership and coaching that encourage an environment of sharing and cooperation. Helping the leader develop a mindset of mentoring. Mentoring versus Monitoring allows those under the leaders guidance to grow to high levels and achievements.

What Clients Say

Business Transformation Expert, Velton Showell III of Strategic Solutions LLC was a featured speaker at my 2015 Executive Retreat. His charge was to hone in on effective traits of successful teams as 40% of my Leadership Committee was brand new. He not only met that challenge, but exceeded it with his uncanny ability to connect right away. His charisma, poise, tone and delivery were extraordinary and clearly an art form to marvel at.

The examples used and his story-telling ability made the message resonate brightly. His strong sense of moral value, business savvy and understanding of the hospitality industry amplified his professional teaching skills. I found myself smiling within during the presentation due to my observation of how the team was receiving his message. He creatively tapped in to each person’s discipline, with insight and examples that fit. Personally, I have no idea of the challenges a professional speaker confronts, yet, I know when someone does it well, and he did.

Please allow this document to serve as a tribute and letter of recommendation for Velton W. Showell III, as his professionalism and effectiveness in presenting to my team was outstanding.
