Know More! Relationships 
Sam Richter, Keynote Speaker

Know more than you ever thought you could (or should) about your prospects, clients, and competition. Business and sales is all about personal relationships. When you know more about your prospects and clients, you’re better able to relate on a personal level, build more meaningful connections, identify triggering events, tailor offerings, and ensure relevancy. Most important, studies show that when you practice Sales Intelligence, you’ll win two times more business!

Sam Richter is an internationally recognized expert on sales intelligence and online reputation management. He has been named one of the world’s Top 25 Most Influential Sales Leaders and his best-selling book, "Take the Cold Out of Cold Calling" is in multiple editions and was named Sales Book of the Year.  Through his Know More! business improvement programs, Sam has trained leading organizations and entertained tens of thousands of persons around the globe.
