    Twins Talk it Up Episode 102: Scaling Sales Success

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 102: Scaling Sales Success

    The Covid-19 pandemic affected nearly every aspect of life and business, leading organizations scrambling for solutions to stay afloat. Many companies were forced to scale down or close their doors. Others became flexible, resourceful and eventually took advantage of the changing landscape. Through strategic assessment, they sought opportunities for growth and found a way to scale up. 
     
    We are pleased to have Dave Mattson, CEO and President of Sandler back on the program to share about his leadership journey, scaling his company for success and about his book entitled, Scaling Sales Success: 16 Principles for Sales Leaders. Sandler is an international training and consulting organization, with over 250 offices in 32 countries, training over 31,000 professionals each year. Sandler was named the top franchise by franchise Business Review and their podcast entitled How to Succeed, has now eclipsed 500 episodes recorded with over 2 million downloads, making it a top 50 podcast on iTunes.
     
    Despite the challenges from the health pandemic, Dave shared that they were able to increase the Sandler organizational staff by 38%, including key Senior Leadership. They were able to rebrand and integrate their own Learning Management System or LMS. They also focused on strategic partnerships, including a new one with HubSpot, one of the industry's leading CRM platforms.
     
    Dave shared about how important it is for leaders to be strategically inquisitive, and that managers should follow the 70/30 rule, meaning that they should be talking only 30% of the time. Being present, ‘knowing your cookbook’ and leading by example are also important elements for success.

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 99: Intentional Leadership

    Several key elements go into developing a successful company. Some of those include having strong leadership with a clear vision, structure, top talent, and a healthy culture. Seeking the best talent, retaining that talent, and then the development of that talent is essential. 

    We are thrilled to have Manish Hirapara, one of the leading digital transformation leaders join us to speak about his leadership journey, supporting the growth trajectory of amazing talent, having augmented reality as a part of his technology solutions deck, and trends within the digital ecosystem. Manish Hirapara is the CEO of PeakActivity, one of the fastest-growing digital strategy and technology implementation companies in the United States. 

    We ask Manish about what has fuelled his personal leadership and what it takes to build incredible teams. He subscribes to having a growth mindset and on being intentional. You must be intentional with:
    Learning and growing 
    Building the right culture
    Celebrating high performers and incorporating ‘Peak Praise” 
    Team building activities and by investing in what they are passionate about
    Involving ‘Peaksters’ in decision making

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 98: Lessons from a Donut Empire

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 98: Lessons from a Donut Empire

    May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) Month and we wanted to continue to highlight incredible leaders. We are so excited to have an entrepreneur and Donut Royalty with Mayly Tao, LA's self-proclaimed Donut Princess join Twins Talk it Up. Mayle is a serial entrepreneur, with several businesses including Donut Exotics and Donut Princess Los Angeles, a donut bouquet delivery concept. She is also the host of the Short N’ Sweet: A Donut Princess Podcast, where she explores mindset, women empowerment, and provides insight and tips for small businesses. Her family was also featured in the Donut King Documentary (thedonutkingfilm.com), telling the history of her family and the powerful story of Cambodian immigrants owning donut shops, beginning with her uncle Ted Ngoy.  

    We ask Mayly to share talk about growing up in a family-owned business and the impact of brand identity and having a strong social media presence. We touch on the Cronut (DKronut) craze and what was next after selling DK Donuts. We ask Mayly to talk about the relationship she has with her mother and what inspired her book entitled, An American Dream, with Sprinkles: The Legacy Story of the Donut Queen & Donut Princess. You will be inspired by her mother's strength and learn about the atrocities she witnessed in Cambodia, and what her family had to go through to come to America.  The book describes generational differences and cultural importance, including the role of the Asian American woman in her family.

    Pick up Mayly Tao's book entitled, An American Dream, with Sprinkles: The Legacy Story of the Donut Queen & Donut Princess. Subscribe to Short N' Sweet: A Donut Princess Podcast and support her small business visit www.donutprincessla.com/

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 97: Selling Through Human Connection

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 97: Selling Through Human Connection

    What does it mean to sell through the lens of human connection? Do you believe that we are all in some way involved in selling? We are fortunate to have Alex Smith join Twins Talk it Up to speak about how sales can be viewed from a different perspective. Alex is a Sales Professional with Docebo, a top SAAS Cloud Based LMS – a Learning Management Platform company. He is also the host of the Stories of Selling Human podcast, where he highlights how we ‘sell by being human, not despite it’.

    We ask Alex to share what inspired him to begin the Stories of Selling Human podcast. While many of his guests do not come from a traditional sales background, they have experienced incredible success because they have been able to get their prospects to buy into them – into who they are. They have learned the art of connection. 
     
    Alex states that his 'understanding strategy is [his] sales strategy'. He believes that you can learn to ask great questions, and that your natural curiosity can be incredibly beneficial. We must be intentional with our human skills and leverage empathy, listening and authenticity. 

    To learn more about Alex Smith, follow him on LinkedIn and subscribe to the Stories of Selling Human podcast.
