Resources from Gary O'Sullivan:

"There are very few "sure things" when it comes to planning a conference, but having Gary O'Sullivan on the program takes the guesswork out of our keynote. He always comes through. From his pre-conference preparation, to his message, to his delivery, Gary gives a first-class presentation every time. Our members consistently rate him as a top speaker, as someone who educates, challenges and inspires. Gary is both passionate and sincere, both authoritative and likable, and these are powerful combinations for any speaker. "

Thoughts that lead to a buying decision
Before people buy, they must have a need.

When people buy, they buy from people they trust.

When you are selling a product or a service, you must first make sure your prospect understands how what you are selling will solve a problem, and you must be a professional whom the prospect can trust.

The key elements of thought that lead to a buying decision are the following:
  1. The prospect has a problem and knows it.
  2. The prospect understands how your products or services can solve the problem.
  3. The prospect trusts your company to deliver.
  4. The prospect trusts you.
  5. The prospect knows when the decision needs to be made.

Once people realize they have a problem, understand what the solution is, and believe that your company is the one they should chose; then the decision-making process is much easier for them. Oftentimes, however, unless you have gained their trust and identified a time they will purchase, a decision is not made, and the sale is lost.
