Book a Meeting with Denis here.

Denis uses his experience to help customers achieve what matters most to them— building top performing teams and improvements in their sales metrics. His role as a coach is to introduce concrete and measurable strategies to create a path for rapid and sustainable growth. One of his fundamental ingredient is a genuine belief in the value of the solutions SalesStar delivers.

“When I reflect on my clients’ successes, I cannot help but attribute it to their fundamental understanding of the principles of consultative selling. I truly believe that our Consultative Selling training programme develops a customer-centric mindset, and when you sell with the customer’s perspective in mind, it has a dramatic effect. The interesting thing about this approach is the concepts are intuitive, which means sales professionals can adopt the practices simply, and yet, you can study it for 20 years and still find opportunities to improve your skills. For me, this means our program unlocks limitless opportunities”
