Frustrated with the inability to connect deeply with your customers over video?  Feel like you’re talking into a black hole?  Losing deals you would have won had you been in person?
I get it.

I felt the same way as an actor struggling to transition from the stage to screen.  My first few auditions were disasters.  I didn’t make a single dollar until I enrolled in some on-camera training and learned the techniques necessary to really connect with other people through the camera. Soon I was booking roles in national television commercials, films and television shows, including HBO’s “Sex and the City.”

After the pandemic, I sprung into action after watching the entire sales community struggle with these same challenges. The Selling On Video Master Class and Workshops were designed to help sellers apply the proven video techniques used in film, television, and broadcasting, to the practicalities of selling in a virtual world.
