Notes From A secret Geek...

What a month August has been at Geek. Despite several Geeky staycations we have continued to gather momentum, adding 3 new Geeks to the team in Frankie, Simon & Tony (You can get better acquainted further down the newsletter). We have also launched our new Digital Sales Academy. I can't tell you the hard work that has gone into development and getting it out at a time right when sales people most need it. And we've done this in tough times for all of us. But as we are seeing, it is also a time of opportunity.

To paraphrase my favourite Dickens novel, this has truly been, "The age of wisdom and the age of foolishness".

We have seen that everywhere, everytime we click on the TV or everytime we go to the shops. The age of wisdom and foolishness is being played out across the world in every aspect of our lives. And so, if I can, I want to apply this message to our businesses, and to our sales teams. Wisdom is battling, it is rooted in kindness and supporting each other. Wisdom is investing in our future, investing in ourselves and the people that surround us. Foolishness is based in fear, fear of change, fear of uncertainty. Foolishness is sticking when we need to twist and a refusal to nurture and support growth in ourselves and others.

Wisdom or foolishness is the stark choice being played out in all our lives across the world. And we need to make clear decisions when we are faced with it, in business as with life. So get wise, get Geeky and get in-front of this!

See you next month - I'm too excited to share the news we have brewing!

Our Latest Geek Recruits

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!

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.

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.
