Keynote Speaker – Paul Nadeau, “How to Get to ‘Yes’; Tips and Techniques for Getting the Sale”
As a world-leading hostage negotiator and criminal interrogator, Paul Nadeau’s daily challenge was to get suspects to admit to heinous crimes, free hostages, and surrender to the police. For sales professionals, the challenge is to get clients to sign on the dotted line. Although the stakes aren’t the same, you can use Paul’s unique approach to understand human behavior and win in sales. Closing is not an art — it’s a science. It takes establishing trust and rapport, asking direct questions, reading voice and body language, adapting to cues, and handling objections. Paul’s talk is a roadmap to get you there.
