New York Times best-selling author of “The Sales Bible” featured speaker on Day 2 of Boston Business Boot Camp, to take place at Westin Hotel in Waltham, Massachusetts, March 1-3.
WALTHAM, MA and WESTON, MA…
Early morning sales conferences are renowned for their coffee breaks. Besides being a time to network, it also provides opportunity for attendees to recaffeinate with their hot beverage of choice. With the recent addition of sales guru Jeffrey Gitomer, bestselling author of the The Sales Bible and a weekly newsletter Sales Caffeine, a second cup of joe might not be necessary for the Boston Business Boot Camp, a three-day conference designed specifically to help green professionals grow their businesses.
“It’s not every day you can add the author of the Bible to your speaker’s list,” joked Keith Upham, founder of the Boston Business Boot Camp. “Seriously though, Jeffrey is one of the most dynamic sales speakers in the world. He not only takes over a room, but provides more of a jolt to an audience than 10 cups of coffee.”
Adds Upham, “We designed this Boot Camp for green industry professionals but the information Jeffrey will be sharing is stuff every small business owner should know.”
Gitomer’s best-selling titles include: The Sales Bible, The Little Red Book of Selling, The Little Black Book of Connections and The Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude. All of his books have been number one best sellers on Amazon.com, including Customer Satisfaction is Worthless, Customer Loyalty is Priceless, The Patterson Principles of Selling, The Little Red Book of Sales Answers, The Little Green Book of Getting Your Way, The Little Platinum Book of Cha-Ching!, The Little Teal Book of Trust, Social BOOM!, and The Little Book of Leadership. His literary efforts also include a weekly syndicated column entitled Sales Moves, with a readership of more than four million.
Gitomer is also a renowned speaker, giving more than 100 presentations per year for corporations like Coca-Cola, D.R. Horton, Caterpillar, BMW, AT&T Wireless, MacGregor Golf, Ferguson Enterprises, Kimpton Hotels, Hilton, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, AmeriPride, NCR, Stewart Title and Comcast Cable. Those presentations include speaking at public and corporate seminars, running annual sales meetings, and conducting live and Internet training programs on selling, customer loyalty, and personal development.
“In creating Boston Business Boot Camp, we wanted to give green industry professionals nationwide a world class event,” said Upham, who is also the owner of Weston, MA-based landscaping/design company The Upham Landscape Company. “With Boston as our location, we were part of the way there. Adding a world class speaker like Jeffrey Gitomer to an already impressive agenda of activities and speakers brings us all the way there.”
Other speakers appearing at the March 1-3 conference to be held at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, Massachusetts, include: Carissa St. Laurent of Constant Contact, Michael Gannon, Esq.; Jeffrey Scott of Jeffrey Scott, Inc.; Bonnie Kirchner of Sea Change Financial Education; Tony Bass of Tony Bass Consulting, Inc.; Frank Crandall of Crandall Consulting and Keith Upham. The range of topics covered will include sales, marketing, financial planning, HR, time management, and more.
The Boston Business Boot Camp anticipates up to 200 attendees from a variety of green industry disciplines, including landscapers, lawn care pros, tree service specialists, pest control business owners, masons, fence companies, nursery/greenhouses, outdoor lighting, and pool installers. The cost to attend is $995 per person. Companies signing up three or more attendees will receive a five percent discount. Companies signing up five or more may deduct 10 percent from the total.
In addition, a variety of sponsorship opportunities are available. Those include the Platinum Sponsorship ($15,000), Silver and Silver Lanyard ($3000) and Bronze ($750).
