My next guest is on Scale Your Sales podcast is Fred Copestake, the Sales trainer and consultant, and author of ‘Selling Through Partnering Skills’. Fred believes that people can get better through learning and sharing, and with better collaboration, we can all really make a difference.
Fred and I talk about his book and why partnering, and collaboration is more important in sales today. Fred expresses why listening is critical and balancing long term and short-term demands between the buyer and supplier along with customer success.
