Sales Expert and Professional Speaker
Colleen Francis, CSP is driven by a passion for people-motivating them to reach for the highest standards of success. For over 15 years, she has studied the business habits of the top 20% of sales performers in organizations of all sizes and shapes-from Fortune 500 companies, to small- and medium-sized businesses. Through her company, Engage Selling Solutions, Colleen has condensed that winning formula into an internationally acclaimed sales-training approach, helping sales and marketing professionals everywhere achieve their maximum potential.
Distinguished by the Canadian Professional Sales Association as a Certified Sales Professional (CSP), Colleen thrives on challenging conventional assumptions about the winning edge needed to stimulate profits, grow new markets, and sustain a loyal customer base. Her savvy, no-nonsense approach to sales is rooted in the belief that there really isn’t a single magic formula to success. Rather, her researched, field-tested approach is about emulating the winning way of those top-20% achievers. Colleen helps find ways to consistently apply a common-sense process for working with, listening to, and tending to the needs of customers.
Ask any of Colleen’s clients about why they call on her services — again and again — and you’re likely to hear a common refrain: she inspires results! Her refreshing candor, her genuine, sincere message, and the personal experiences she relates as a top-ranked sales executive all are inspiring motivators for sales and marketing professionals who strive to get to the top…and stay there. Just as important, Colleen is unwavering in her commitment to sales training that makes a lasting and meaningful impact on the corporate bottom-line. That’s why her services are regularly sought by leading private- and public-sector organizations across North America. These include Canada Post, Corel J D S Uniphase, Eastern Financial, Ajilon, Clarica Life Assurance, the Government of Canada, Bell, and Skyline.
