"I have only recently embarked upon what I define as a “traditional” sales career. My initial experience with sales was centered on technical sales at a Tier 1 automotive supplier. In June 2014, I began a new job where my responsibilities included a more traditional sales role including prospecting, building new relationships with customers, and quoting. While much of my previous experience could be leveraged in my new role, I definitely felt that I could benefit from additional sales training. This is what led me to participate in Sandler Sales Training, specifically with my coach Ken Guest.

Ken is a great salesman. He is highly motivated, hard-working, conscientious, etc. Frankly, so are many other sales people. What sets Ken apart is how he communicates the breadth of his knowledge and skills in passionate and inspiring way. Ken has provided me with both the basic information to enhance my sales skills, as well as, the motivation to continue to be positive even when I was not “having such a great month.”

With Ken’s guidance, over the course of one year I was able to increase the number of nationwide maintenance service company contracts from one to four resulting in an increased revenue of 400%. Further, my total sales increased 378% during the same period.

I absolutely recommend Ken Guest, and the Sandler Sales Training, method to anyone who wishes to achieve similar successes."

"At the first Bootcamp, I was a little hesitant about the program. Not because it was something new, I’ve always embraced the programs that KAG has asked me to attend. I like to consider myself open-minded, and I feel they have enough faith in me to offer me such opportunities to help me succeed. No, I was hesitant because it was Sales training, and I don’t consider myself a salesman. Of course we are all sales-people on one level or another. We sell ourselves to the world everyday with our personalities and attitudes. But I don’t deal directly with customers in that type of situation, so I questioned why I was there. I soon realized why. After almost a full year with Sandler. 4 Bootcamps. 3 One-on-one sessions with my advisor. And so many President’s Club sessions that I have failed to count (including a couple virtual ones). I have gain not only knowledge about what I can do as a salesman (if I ever become one), but also have improved my skills as a manager. I’ve gained skills on not being afraid to hear no and actually trying to get that result sometimes (because it might be the better decision). I’ve gained confidence and changed my behavior. Overall, it’s be a fantastic experience and I plan to continue to work with Sandler in the days/weeks/months/years to come".

"I found the Sandler program to be very worthwhile. Most programs are a quick two-day session and you walk away forgetting everything you heard. With the quarterly sessions to bring us all together, coupled with the twice monthly in-house training, the reinforcements are really helpful in retaining the information. I have put several of the techniques to work over the last year and feel very confident in my abilities to more effectively close sales. Further, I have been able to eliminate potential accounts that are not a good fit for our business model, saving me time to focus on stronger opportunities".

I have had the privilege of working with Ken for the past two years. Ken has provided not only education, development and mentoring on the professional side, but also support and friendship on the personal side. Ken has been able to tailor their sales training to my learning style, and knows me well enough at this point to be honest, blunt, and to the point with me. Ken, and honestly the rest of the team at the Ruby Group, are top notch. I would highly encourage anyone looking for sales training and professional development to reach out to Ken. It is a pleasure to work with him.
