Holiday Presents For Sales Leaders -- DeWese
Next, I've booked some of our greatest entertainers. Tom Hanks will emcee the entertainment at the Waldorf and Billy Crystal will preside at the Plaza. We're talkin' about Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Faith Hill, Madonna, Ray Charles, the Beach Boys, Joe Cocker, Paul McCartney and Pavarotti. Here's the best: Marvelle Stump called to say that he'd spotted the King and the Chairman of the Board at the bus station. I knew those rumors were true. Marvelle is going to find and sign them for our bash.
Here are the Lifetime Print Sales Achievement Awards that Hanks and Crystal will be presenting.
The Printing Industry Lifetime Sales Hard Work Award. This diamond-encrusted statuette and a brand new Ferrari will go to the print salesperson who has worked the hardest to serve his or her customers. This person not only worked long hours, Saturdays and some Sundays, but also worked overtime and paid dues to become the most technically competent print sales professional in America. Now who can this be? I'll bet you're thinkin' it's you.
The Printing Industry Sales Relationship Lifetime Award. This award will go to the salesperson who has best cultivated mutually profitable relationships with his or her customers. This salesperson has demonstrated the proverb that people buy things from people they like.
The winner will have developed a powerful likability factor by building trust and demonstrating a pure motivation to serve customers. This award is not for a person who tells good jokes or picks up the biggest tabs. It's for the salesperson who epitomizes the term "partner." I know. I know. About 9,000 of you are thinking that you will walk off with this Faberge designed, bejeweled trophy and the specially built Maserati.
The Most Persuasive Print Salesperson Lifetime Achievement Award. This recognition will go the salesperson who has demonstrated the greatest questioning and listening skills. He or she will have proven that you can listen your way into way more sales than you can ever talk your way into.
