Ben Katt is a multi-million dollar producer in corporate sales, business to business sales and group sales.
For the past 25 years, Ben has facilitated seminars on Advanced Persuasion Skills. Based on the practical application of his broad sales experience, he developed unique approach to persuasion that immediately benefit readers and seminar participants in their very next sales appointment. In his last corporate position, Ben was hired to turn around and rebrand a failing division acquired by a DOW 30 company. The division had dwindling sales and was losing 10% of its customer base each year. The loss of clients stopped immediately and his first year, an additional 10% of new clients were added to their customer base. Within three years, Ben’s sales leadership of that division led to a 600% increase in annual sales.
Because of his success with that division, he was invited to facilitate the Advanced Persuasion Skills seminar at that corporation’s national development program. Since 2008, every account manager attending that national development program has been trained by Ben. Ben’s sales experience began in high school with telephone sales for a local police fraternal organization. In 1983, he began a specialty publishing company which served the marketing needs of home builders and real estate companies. He sold the business in the early 1990’s before living abroad for a year. Upon his return, he began speaking for group sales seminar companies as an independent contractor. Through his group sales efforts, he consistently produced over one million dollars of sales revenues each year. In the early 2000’s, Ben consulted with small businesses around the Midwest on every aspect of finances and entrepreneurship.
