Sales Hacker Seattle – Hacking Business Development with Omar Rivas

Sales Hacker Seattle – Hacking Business Development with Omar Rivas
Event on 2015-10-14 17:30:00
Sales Hacker Seattle – Hacking Business Development with Omar Rivas and Dan Savage   Sales and other bad words – a look at selling from a ‘non-salesy’ approach. First let's get this straight…everyone who speaks is in sales. You are either selling an idea, a way of doing things, yourself, a product or a service. So now that we got that out of the way, lets understand, people buy for 3 reasons; pain, fear or pleasure. Fear being pain in the future and pleasure is a variable. They make decisions emotionally, and rationalize them intellectually. Solutions is what people buy, not products and services. But people are so adamant on presenting their features and benefits, it becomes a sales job. This interactive session uncovers the psychology of sales, and the language that results in your success on getting your point across.   Speakers: Omar Rivas For over 30 years Omar Rivas has been influential in the  business community through 9 companies, 5 verticals, and 2 coasts as a business owner, executive and leader. An award winning educational and motivational speaker, executive coach and advisor described by his clients as passionate, disruptive, innovative, and charming. His passion to create innovative ways to influence an audience, has been noted by companies such asMicrosoft, Costco, Expedia, RealNetworks, Google, Group Health, Coinstar, Virginia Mason, Zymogentics, T-Mobile, Pemco, Harborview, and many more. As a speaker he presented his way to the World Championship of Public Speaking semifinals in 2010. In 2011 he presented his way to the Finals and became one of the top 9 speakers in the world, out of 30,000 competitors in 116 countries, for Toastmasters International. Today he delivers keynotes, seminars and workshops on various business principles, including management, business development, team building, and leadership, and coaches executives in the art of influencing their audience with brilliant presentations.

About the speaker:   Imran is the owner of 6 businesses, dealing with arts, sports coaching, education consulting, men's tailoring, book publishing, and seminar events. He has been featured in various media including 93.8 FM, Straits Times, Today newspaper, Berita Harian and New Paper. Imran's journey of Learning + Massive Implementation commenced that very year in 2009. He has started business, after business… And miraculously, every single one of them became profitable in 30 days or less. Imran's first ever business which is still running today was an art gallery Imran went on to automate the first business, and set up a 2nd one, a sports coaching company which has won countless awards since. Today, it is the market leader in schools.   After these small wins, He set up my 3rd business, in education consulting, which is Singapore’s #1 education marketing and consulting firm. Being the entrepreneurial spirit that he was, he set up yet another business in tailoring with a partner- Today, he has been blessed to also have been able to start and run a business coaching company that has helped thousands around Asia to get started in entrepreneurship.   Why would he be so interested with the Digital Economywhen he was already running multiple offline businesses? And that’s the question he get asked a lot, especially after he has given a speech at Mindvalley, on his system called “The World’s Easiest Entrepreneurship System”… The answer is pretty obvious that with Digital Economy, the sky is the limit and scalability is the main key. Two reasons… 1. Family – He always wanted to provide the BEST for his family, especially of his new born child… 2. Financial and Time Freedom – With proper and right coaching by the right mentor, doing business in digital economy would warrant you financial and time freedom. Here’s the results he get from doing business in digital economy… (customer names withheld to protect privacy) The first ever launch of a campaign online netted him at ,475 SGD in 3 days. Another launch netted at ,995 USD or ,100 in Singapore Dollars profits online, in 3 days, between 25th april to 28th april ,712 SGD for a few days' work doesn't seem fair…. Here’s the another result from his latest launch, resulting in ,530 USD or ,712 SGD. Apparently, there is no such thing as "fair" online-Money isn't attracted to fairness!… (This was a big realisationtaught to him by my mentors)     The reason he shows these is not to “show off”- Rather, it’s to ask you to be discerning about who you learn from (He call this the Theorists vs Practitioners theory) So the proves that he knows what he is talking about- He is not another “all-theory, no results” speaker. He is merely sharing with you what works, and what doesn’t, when you want to make extra streams of income, especially online. What if, for one day only, you too, had the chance to“look over his shoulders” and learn how he did all of the above? Come learn from him how he managed to add these streams of income into his portfolio, LIVE this Thursday at Holiday Inn Orchard hotel. Imran is also the author of the following book: The 10 Step Marketing Formula which is available on Amazon.   Imran has also been invited to the United Nations Headquarters in New York to speak on the role of internet marketing in bridging the income gap between the poor and the rich in developing countries. An avid marketer, he has also spoken on Mindvalley's stage, the world's largest publisher of info-products online. You probably saw his recent internet marketing experiments that raked in over ,000 SGD during his 9 days holiday in Tokyo, Las Vegas, New York and San Diego. He gave a speech at United Nations Headquarters in New York onDigital Entrepreneurship, alongside Brian Tracy. And this Thursday, he'll be revealing the secrets of my internet marketing business methods at Holiday Inn Orchard.
