♦️ EPISODE QUOTES
"Personal brands are not built by sharing the company content, they are built by being you."
"Showing up and being consistent and not all about how many followers, likes and comments you have."
"Personal brands help people to sell but also help people to get jobs, promotions and meet great people."
"The hardest part will always be at the start [...] but I know that you have value to give."
"Invest your time and invest your energy."
♦️ABOUT THE HOST:
I am the Co-founding Director of Doqaru Ltd, a data-driven sales and marketing consultancy for engineering, technology and professional services companies.
I've directly served over 85 companies in a sales consultancy capacity in the past 5 years, and have indirectly supported hundreds of businesses through online workshops and various content. My company, Doqaru, were nominated as finalists for Start-up Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses and Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2019 and 2020.
I'm a Fellow of the Association of Professional Sales (APS) and care about helping organisations to grow revenue and drive the performance of their sales teams. I have a passion for people and have recently co-authored Amazon No1 Bestselling Purposeful People, an anthology about finding purpose and purpose-driven leadership.
As an ex-trauma nurse I’ve learned a lot about how to truly connect and engage with people, even during the most emotional and vulnerable points in life. I now use this knowledge and experience to help my clients to ‘Sell Like a Nurse’ and build human connection that makes a difference in business.
So, I know a thing or two about strategy, making meaningful connections and building relationships with purpose….just what you need in Social Selling!
