I’ve worked with and for many sales professionals. Although my jobs have not been directly tied to quota based selling it has always been something that fascinates me.

It wasn’t until I started following Derrick that it all started to click and make sense. Derrick not only knows what he is talking about, but he can coach, teach and facilitate the learning process to shorten the learning curve. That is truly something this industry is lacking. There are a lot of people that know sales, but it takes a true professional to be able to understand it and transfer that knowledge and understanding to someone who is attempting to learn the profession.

Too often I see people give face value information, but Derrick provides deep actionable information that you can use that day. Earlier this week Derrick spent time talking with me about job related competencies and not only did he help me further my career, but he helped me understand my strengths and my future in the industry I am in.

There aren’t many people in Derrick’s position that would have taken time out of their day to truly give actionable information, and Derrick did that without any question or asking anything in return. There are very few people that have my business and recommendation after one conversation, but Derrick is one of those people.

If you’re looking to better your sales skills, your sales team, or just have a conversation with someone who genuinely cares about human beings and their success look no further.

Derrick, I appreciate your time and I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
