    It’s no secret that the “sales” is a dirty word. Many professionals try to call it something else – Business Development, Marketing, Relationship Development. Still, calling it something else doesn’t change anything.

    For those who dislike selling, what we’ve learned over the years is this – They dislike the behaviors they’ve seen demonstrated by others, but essentially they feel as if they’ve no other choice, those actions, while uncomfortable, none the less must be emulated.
    Pretend for a moment that sales is a process. And that process is driven by a proven system. And this system and process produce replicable and duplicable results each time.

    Joel Kaczmarek, associate with Sandler Training, will break it down and share with you some of the reasons you are uncomfortable, rightfully so, with selling. This program will cover the two systems that are at play, Your System and the Seller’s System are frequently at odds and create discomfort. He will introduce a new and somewhat counterintuitive selling system and will compare and contrast all three.

    • This program is designed for men & women who depend on sales to grow and expand their companies.
    • For people that are frustrated with getting “think it overs” instead of a closed file or sale.
    • Maybe you are doing lots of bids and proposals and still not getting the business. Worse yet, lowering your prices, dropping your margins and still not getting the business or, getting the business and wishing you hadn’t.

    Joel Kaczmarek is a business growth consultant with Sandler Training. He works with sales leadership and salespeople on the concept of “change your behavior, change your results.” Joel helps companies grow their business topline and bottom line through the use of a proven sales methodology delivered through the use of repetition and reinforcement.

    Sales people are not born. They are developed.

    This free, casual and interactive monthly speaker series features entrepreneurs who are "Under 30" sharing their journey to success. February features Chris Padgett, founder and CEO at Fusion3 Designs!

    Chris’s involvement with Fusion3 originated from his own personal interest in 3D printing. In his spare time from his work as a product development engineer, he purchased some 3D printer kits to learn about the technology and was disappointed with their build and print quality. After noticing poor design choices in all of the available printers, he started developing his own customized designs.
    Chris is also very active in the local and regional entrepreneur communities of the Research Triangle. He presents talks on entrepreneurship often and is proud to be a founding member of the Greensboro Forge – a community makerspace.

    Greensboro native and Grimsley High School Alumnus Haley (Simmons) Bohon is bringing her high­growth startup SkillPop to Greensboro as part of a Spring 2017 tour seeking out new locations for expansion. The four-­week tour (April 23 ­ May 20) will include hosting their signature in­-person, pop­up style classes in several cities throughout the Southeast, and all classes will be taught by local makers and thought ­leaders and hosted in unique venues throughout each city.
    Greensboro is the fourth tour city to be unveiled; the rest will be announced one­-by-­one on SkillPop’s social media accounts. The startup will host a Photography Basics class taught by local photographer Becca Carter at HQ Greensboro, and tickets for a limited number of spots are now available!

    Class Description:
    Do you have a DSLR camera, but aren't confident shooting in manual? This class is for you! Over the course of 2 hours, you'll learn beginner photography skills and get some hands-on practice behind your camera. We'll discuss things like ISO, aperture, shutter speed, the rule of thirds, and framing your subjects for beautiful photos. In the second half of the class, we'll go outside for a practice portrait session! This will give you structured hands-on practice behind the lens. You'll leave class with the ability to shoot with your camera in manual mode, allowing you make creative decisions about each photo rather than having the camera call the shots.

    Instructor: Becca Carter
    Materials: DSLR Camera
    Cost: $30

    The $207 billion cybersecurity industry is exploding, and many of its sectors are expected to show impressive revenue growth over the next five years. For entrepreneurs seeking a foothold to launch a business, that can spell opportunity.

    Connectivity is the secret sauce for innovation, scale and personalization. From your healthcare, to what you're wearing and eating to finance (big and small), transportation and the environment -- and lets not forget all those great Consumer IoT products to make our lives better -- we want our systems and data to be safe and secure.

    Experts predict a global shortage of two million cyber security professionals by 2019. In addition, industry sectors from compliance to data storage to online processing are poised for rapid growth. Where do you fit?

    Our expert panel will:

    1. "Demystify" cybersecurity by talking about where the risks are, and (equally important) aren't.
    2. Stimulate conversation about resulting opportunities for entrepreneurs.


    The Plan:

    5:00-5:30 Sign in – Local beer, pizza, mingling & networking
    5:30-6:30 Panel Discussion
    6:30-7:00 More beverages, & snacks, mingling & networking

    The Entrepreneurial Journeys Monthly Speaker Series

    The founders of Oak City Fish And Chips are the quintessential foodies, constantly craving things delicious! As a group of young serial entrepreneurs, they turned their attention to discovering how they could position themselves to share their passion for amazing food experiences with the people of The City of Oaks: Raleigh, NC.

    Isaac B. Horton is a UNC Greensboro graduate and has become a serial entrepreneur. After graduating, he worked for Lenovo at Research Triangle Park, and after only a year, decided to break out on his own to pursue his entrepreneurial journey. Isaac is a cofounder of Oak City Fish and Chips Food Truck, which launched in 2015 and has four food trucks in operation around the city. His company is currently set to expand into Mecklenburg County, as well as Los Angeles. Be on the lookout for The Oak City Fish and Chips brick-and-mortar location, which is set to open in the Morgan Street Food Market in Raleigh, NC in late 2017. Not only is this a huge accomplishment for Isaac and his company, but also helps to make progressive steps in business ownership – this brick-and-mortar will make Isaac the first African American restaurant owner in downtown Raleigh. We’re proud to have Isaac and his team as part of the HQ Community, and we’re excited to have him speak at HQ Greensboro on October 19th as part of UNCG’s Entrepreneurial Journeys Speaker Series!

    The UNCG Entrepreneurial Journeys Monthly Speaker Series

    Sarah Doggett Evenson is creating effortlessly chic clothing as the founder and creative director of Marie Oliver. Sarah’s goal is to make women feel confident in her figure-flattering, draping designs. In late 2012, after years of curating her personal wardrobe and driven by her father’s frequent reminder to “find something you love and learn how to be successful doing it”, Sarah began working with her now husband, Peter, to develop what was a mere childhood dream into a reality… her middle name, “Marie”, and his middle name, “Oliver”. Today, while Sarah oversees all creative aspects of the brand, Peter is responsible for developing and implementing Marie Oliver’s growth strategy and managing day- to- day affairs. Spring 2015 marks the launch of Marie Oliver’s debut collection in specialty boutiques across the US and Ecommerce at www.marieoliver.com.
    Marie Oliver is proudly headquartered in Greensboro, NC,  where Sarah and Peter currently reside.
