Sales Geek Launches Professional Development Arm

We are delighted to introduce the world to our latest Geeks, Mike & Sarah Ode who are leading on a new geeky operation dedicated to professional development training. They both join the Sales Geek family as directors of a new business, Sales Geek Professional Development.

Mike and Sarah ran their own successful business ‘Potential Unearthed’ for over 12 years, providing professional development and leadership training across the country to clients including the NHS, Capita, BT, Crown Paints, Amey and The University of Salford. 

Chief Geek & Founder Richard Few said:
“We are thrilled to welcome Mike and Sarah into the Sales Geek family as our Professional Development Geeks. I actually took part in some of their training in a previous life as a Sales Director. It was some of the best, most enlightening and inspirational training I have ever had, so when the opportunity arose to work together it was a real no-brainer. It is such a natural fit, both in terms of service offering and in terms of our outlook and how we see the world. Mike and Sarah are geeks at heart - so we made it official! This venture gives Sales Geek a huge boost. Until now we have focussed on developing people's sales skills. And we are bloody good at that! Now we have significantly upped our offering and for the first time we can support people and organisations in a holistic way, developing our clients as leaders and as people. Mike and Sarah really fit in with Geek values and culture and bring all their expertise and drive to Sales Geek in an area that is a natural fit with our existing products and services.”

Sales Geek Professional Development Director Mike Ode said:
“The opportunity to join the Sales Geek family came at just the right time for us. In our previous roles we were often being asked if we provide sales training, while the guys at Sales Geek were often being asked about professional development training, so the coming together felt very natural as a way of providing clients with a holistic range of training that’s highly in demand. “We provide leadership, management and personal development courses and training, both face-to-face and virtually, aimed at everyone from senior management and directors, through middle management, down to aspiring managers, who are interested in consolidating what they already know, while finding out more about the latest management techniques aimed at getting the best from today’s employees.”

We are thrilled to have Mike and Sarah on board and we’d love it if you could share the love on their Linkedin profiles too.
