Sales Geek was founded to change the way the world perceives sales

Imagine the thing you are most passionate about…

…Now imagine that everyone else’s experience of that passion seems to be negative!

That’s how our Geeks feel everyday about their passion for sales.

So we decided to do something about it. ‘Sales’ has become a dirty word and we have had enough!

We are on a mission to change the way world perceives sales. Chief Geek and Founder Richard Few explains more.

Meet the Geeks

Richard Few

Chief Geek and Founder

Richard founded Sales Geek to change the way the world perceives sales and make world class sales leadership available for everyone not just large corporations. He has lead from the front as the Geeky team has grown and flourished and won multiple awards for our groundbreaking work. Weekends are for family, Reggie the bulldog and the rugby pitch, not always in that order. You might say that as a rugby player as well as a Sales Geek he specialises in conversions!

Geek Value: Do the right thing

Lucy Profile Sales Geek

Lucy Few

Chief People & Finance Geek

Geek Director Lucy is the Geek you’ll deal with when we get to sorting contracts and invoices. She is also our wellbeing Geek and the person we all turn to for a plaster on a grazed knee or a well earned duvet day. Somehow she manages to be both hyper organised, caring and approachable. She’s the one you’ll hang out with most on a night out, she’ll dispense wisdom to sort your life out and keep you amused with innuendo aplenty. She is devoted to her two boys, Ellis and… Richard!

Geek Value: Geek’s care

Jonathan Finch

Group Sales Director Geek

Geek Director Jonathan is force of nature. So you better hold on tight – if Finchy’s on your side things are going to happen fast. He is in the Sales ‘A-Team’ and loves it when a plan comes together for our clients. He is constantly driving Sales Geek forward and at the weekends he drives his Fiancée, Bella to distraction trawling antique fairs like a Geeky David Dickinson searching for the coolest thing possible at the lowest price! What a Bobby Dazzler!

Geek Value: Get shit done

Your sales director James

James Denny

Strategic Director Geek

James is a Director of Sales Geek. In the dim and distant past he used to be a sonar operator in the Navy and knows a few bleeping things about sales and business growth too. James has worked on business strategy for over 20 years and helped sell businesses for over £700m in the last seven years. James puts his strategic brain to use on the tennis court where his best laid plans are usually undone by his failing body!

Geek Value: Be Brave!

Geek Value: Make things fun

Secret Geek

Secret Geek

Secret Geek

Some say that our secret Geek is half Canadian, was once kidnapped by Norwegians in Paris and snogged a Hollywood actress. All we know, is that he is our constantly creative, content Geek. If in passing you have noticed the Sales Geek brand or liked, shared or commented on our social media then that’s our Secret Geek sauce working its magic. He’s very shy and even David Attenborough hasn’t seen him in his natural environment being kept on his toes by his two boys and their endless stream of sporting activities.

Geek Value: Make things fun.

Erik Sales Geek

Erik Pollitt

Learning & Development Geek

Erik’s sales training CV reads like one you’d make up if only you had the imagination. Erik is the reason that you’ll return to Sales Geek again and again for training. With his help we are already on our way to becoming the best sales training provider in the UK and he played a key role in helping Geek become one of only 20 training centres world wide to be accredited by the Institute of Sales Management. Mon Dieu! – Erik’s spends his spare time at his chateau in France!

Birkett Profile Sales Geek

Emily Birkett

Business Operations Geek

‘Dangerous’ Emily Birkett is our office Geek. As a fan of MotoGP, horse riding, cycling and anything that includes the term ‘riding by the seat of their pants’ she is the thrill-seeker of the team. As a counterweight to all that excitement Emily is actually hyper organised, she makes sure Team Geek are where they should be, when they should be. If you phone the bunker it will invariably be her dulcet tones you hear. If you’ve enjoyed training or a meeting at the bunker or online then you have Emily to thank for making your experience a fantastically Geeky one. Owner of the ‘dirtiest laugh’ in Geekdom, there’s no one better placed to be our front of house/bunker.

Geek Value: Be Brave

Simon Damp

Your Sales Director

Simon is Your Sales Director. He also held the Guinness World record for taping someone to a wall in the fastest time and enjoys clay pigeon shooting in his spare time – so once you hire him, you are stuck with him!! The truth is you are never going to want to let him go. Simon’s experience and track record is unrivalled. As the former MD of ‘Gorilla Glue’ he grew their sales from £250k to over £40m! He knows how to grow and scale a business. He is another member of team Geek you need in your corner.

Geek Value: Geeks change the world

Tony Capper

Your Sales Director

Tony is Your Sales Director. With more experience than he would care to admit, winning ‘share price’ affecting deals and delivering real transformation for our clients gives him that true Geek feeling. Captivated as a customer of Sales Geek, Tony understands the impact the Geeks have on the business world. In his spare time, Tony can be found pottering on his family’s smallholding implementing the next ‘excellent idea’ from his better half.

Geek Value: Get shit done

Frankie Pearce

Sales & Campaign Geek
Frankie is our Sales and Campaign Geek. If you have completed our online courses, booked the Sales Geek Academy or become a member of The Sales Geek Hub, chances are you have been in contact with her at some point.
Frankie is our green-fingered Geek. She grows corn, spring onions, strawberries, chilli and tomatoes in her garden, although we are unclear if she uses them all in the same recipe! Her daughter Freya keeps he on her toes, so she likes to get out the house for a small break – such as cycling 874 miles for charity or zip-lining through the jungle in St Kitts!

Our Values

What does it mean to be a Sales Geek? What can you expect when you work with us? SalesGeek© has a very clear strand of DNA that runs through all of us, which all adds together to form the anatomy of a Geek.

GEEKS CARE

Compassion starts at home. Being a Geek is belonging to a tribe. We look out for each other and that attitude transfers to our clients.

GEEKS ARE BRAVE

Geeks speak up for what’s right rather than what’s easy. We are committed to a high standard of personal conduct and have the courage to make tough decisions.

GEEKS MAKE IT FUN

If we aren’t having fun doing it then why bother? Geeks strive to transfer that innate sense of fun to our guests, clients and Geekophiles.

GEEKS GET SH!T DONE

Procrastination is the thief of time. Time is our most precious asset, why waste it? Geeks commit to something, then do it.

GEEKS ARE ALWAYS LEARNING

A Geek is never comfortable. We are genuinely excited to learn new stuff and adapt and thrive within an ever changing world.

GEEKS CHANGE THE WORLD

Our company was founded with the mission to: "change the way the world perceives sales". That mission has not faltered and each Geek has a contribution to make in realising it.
