The Program:

What if you knew how to get the attention of top decision makers? How to entice them to engage in conversation, then engage your services? Would your life — and bank account — be different if you could speak directly to those who hold the purse strings, versus going through lower-level gatekeepers?

Ron is an über-salesman. He knows how to get to decision makers through strategy, courage, persistence, creativity — and chutzpah! He’ll share techniques he’s used to get to Steve Forbes, Cathie Black (CEO of Hearst Publications), Tim Ferriss (bestselling author of The Four-Hour Work Week) and many more. He’ll discuss how to adapt what he’s done so you can apply it to your situations.

You will learn:

  • how to avoid the most common mistake that prevents speakers from reaching their targets
  • the proper etiquette for networking power brokers
  • the key to leveraging relationships
  • how to create an enticing value proposition for each top dog
  • how you can generate so much conviction that you can’t not make the call — you have absolute belief you can help him/her
  • how how to uncover your prospect’s hot buttons and wrap your offer around those
  • the best ways to get through to the top decision makers
