HOSTING THE MIKADO THIS MONTH:

 

TERRY MULLINS,

THE RELUCTANT SALESMAN

 

In 2004, prompted in part by the ease with which he could sell and an interest in personal development, Terry created The Reluctant Salesman approach to selling, an approach designed specifically for professional service providers and those who are uncomfortable with traditional technique based selling.  He has been delivering his ‘Freedom to Sell’ programs in workshops and as a consultant to businesses ever since.

 

Come and meet new people, or get to know acquaintances better, all while getting advice on selling from the master.

 

TOM HART DYKE

 

Tom first shot to international prominence in the year 2000 when he was kidnapped in the Colombian jungle on a plant hunting expedition.

 

After his return home to his ancestral home of Lullingstone Castle in Kent, Tom and fellow hostagePaul Winder penned the best selling book The Cloud Garden (Transworld 2002) detailing their experiences in the jungle.  Tom’s jungle antics – building gardens in the mountains, much to the annoyance of his captors - cemented his reputation as a ‘plant nut’. Tom later wrote another book An Englishman’s Home detailing the trials and tribulations of developing the World Garden at Lullingstone Castle.

 

 

Meet other business professionals in a friendly environment

12:45  At our pre-lunch Drinks Reception, 30 minutes of open networking offer the chance to meet or catch up with more exceptional people.

 

13:15 A superb 3 course meal with wine is served.  With planned seating and small tables, there are more opportunities for introductions and discussion.

 

14:30 (appox) We have first-rate speakers who share their knowledge with us.  The talks are like mini master classes and you can always take away a little nugget of information.
