Engage. Enlighten. Inspire.

A sales speaker should do more than make your team feel good…

Julie Hansen gives your team proven strategies and actionable tactics they need to win business in today’s competitive marketplace.  Talks are based on the ideas presented in Julie’s two sales books:  Sales Presentations for Dummies and ACT Like a Sales Pro!   A professional actor, Julie will keep even your most seasoned pros engaged as she uses humor and improv to create a memorable event that inspires action.

Making Your Message Memorable

How do you make sure that your presentation or demo is remembered – and acted upon — after you walk out the door?

Longer buying cycles and increasingly complex sales mean fewer presentation or demos end in a signed contract.  Decision-makers may not get together for days, weeks or months to discuss your proposal.  During that time, your prospect will see other vendors and have new demands put on their plate.  How do you ensure you and your solution are remembered – and not confused with your competitor?

Audiences will learn how to:

  • Shorten the sales cycle by increasing clarity and memorability
  • Stand out from the competition in any selling environment
  • Adapt their message to align with customer attention spans
  • Apply brain research to make a message memorable
  • Create and deliver a powerful opening and closing that moves the sale forward
  • Use a variety of engagement techniques to optimize attention
  • Improve message recall with the power of story

Performance Powered Sales: Get the Actor’s Competitive Edge!

Believe it or not, the actors you see in movies and on TV hold the key to winning more sales today.

You have access to the same tools as a great actor:  Your voice, your body, a stage, and a script.  The difference is that actors learn to use these tools to engage and move an audience. In this signature keynote, learn how to gain a competitive advantage by applying proven acting and improvisation skills to your sales tools.  Julie Hansen shares from her personal experience as a professional actor and an award-winning salesperson.   Based on Julie’s groundbreaking book, ACT Like a Sales Pro.

Audiences will learn how to:

  • Exhibit greater confidence and credibility
  • Quickly establish an emotional connection with customers
  • Leverage voice, body and stage to maintain attention and highlight key messages
  • Bring dull sales scripts or presentations to life
  • Move from boring monologue to engaging dialogue
  • Gain customer buy-in for your ideas and next steps

Creating a Compelling Sales Story

Leverage the power of storytelling in sales with proven tips from the movies, television and Ted Talks 

A great story can change the minds and hearts of your prospect, differentiate you and your solution, and inspire action. Drawing on storytelling essentials from the movies, television and TED Talks, Julie Hansen reveals the secret to crafting a purposeful story that hooks your prospect, adds value to the sales conversation and moves the sale forward.

Because a story is only as good as the performer delivering it, Julie will also share how to apply proven acting techniques to bring a story to life and leave a lasting impression on customers – just as this keynote will leave a lasting impression on your team.

Audiences will learn how to:

  • Select a compelling story for maximum impact
  • The five most effective types of sales stories and where to use them
  • Build a story based on proven models
  • Create a movie-style opening that “hooks” your audience
  • Deliver a story with authenticity and confidence
  • Make the story “sticky” with busy audiences

What Audiences are Saying:

“We had the pleasure of including Julie Hansen in our August 2017 convention as a keynote speaker.  She was fabulous!  Entertaining, engaging and so different than other traditional keynotes.  She had 600 people on their feet; not an easy task!

Julie made communication and planning a snap.  We needed a great deal of pre-work and the material she provided was perfect.  Julie designed breakout sessions for our sales reps and leaders, which were fun yet practical.

I highly recommend including Julie for your next conference; she’s a refreshing change from typical keynote topics.”

I was scribbling down notes the entire time and have a bunch of improvements I can make immediately both on our decks and my presenting style itself.

“We observed “Light Bulbs” going off in our franchisee’s heads and the best aspect of the session was the owners discussing how they cannot wait to return home and begin implementing these techniques.
