    Do you know that Agile is the best thing that can happen to your sales!

    Do you know how to involve your staff and boost sales 3 to 4 times?

    Do you know that Agile transformation in a company takes half the time if you start with Sales?

    Do you want to know more? Come and hear me speak at the conference. I will gladly share.

    I practice Agile transformation and have already launched over 170 Agile Sales teams. They come from different industries, such as retail, distribution, atomic industry, medical clinics network, and many more.

    I have discovered the key to helping IT, Sales and Marketing Departments collaborate and to increase company profits 3 to 4 times.

    I travel and teach globally. In 2017 I talked about Agile Sales in Chicago. I look forward to flying to New York and sharing my step-by-step plan of Agile Transformation in Sales. I will talk about overcoming the obstacles you may face in the process.

    P.S. My whole family including our nanny uses Scrum. But that is a different story! I will tell you more about that in the breaks between presentations.
