♦️ABOUT THE HOST:
I am the Co-founding Director of Doqaru Ltd, a data-driven sales and marketing consultancy for engineering, technology and professional services companies.
I've directly served over 85 companies in a sales consultancy capacity in the past 5 years, and have indirectly supported hundreds of businesses through online workshops and various content. My company, Doqaru, were nominated as finalists for Start-up Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses and Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2019 and 2020.
I'm a Fellow of the Association of Professional Sales (APS) and care about helping organisations to grow revenue and drive the performance of their sales teams. I have a passion for people and have recently co-authored Amazon No1 Bestselling Purposeful People, an anthology about finding purpose and purpose-driven leadership.
As an ex-trauma nurse I’ve learned a lot about how to truly connect and engage with people, even during the most emotional and vulnerable points in life. I now use this knowledge and experience to help my clients to ‘Sell Like a Nurse’ and build human connection that makes a difference in business.
So, I know a thing or two about strategy, making meaningful connections and building relationships with purpose….just what you need in Social Selling!
