The Connections Expert
Dave Sherman, the Connections Expert, has been helping people all over the country create deep, powerful, and productive connections with others that have helped them personally and professionally. It is a known fact in business that people who have created the best connections with their clients sell more of their product or service, more often, at a higher price, and with fewer complaints.
Dave believes connections are not created by handing out your business card and telling people everything they NEVER wanted to know about your business. It’s the process of creating a level of likeability and commonality with the people you meet. The more people you create this common bond with, the faster your business grows and the easier your life becomes.
As the founder and creator of “Connection Pros”, a speaking, training, and consulting organization, Dave inspires people to look at the process of creating connections in a whole new light that is more effective, more comfortable, and more profitable. His topics include “Breaking the Ice – Creating Connections with Just About Anyone, Elevating Your Elevator Speech – A Powerful Way to Answer the Question What Do You Do?”, Overcoming Your Personal Obstacles – How to Conquer Your Barriers to Success” and more. Dave is also the author of the best selling book, “50 TOP TIPS, A Simple Guide to Networking Success,” “Breaking the Ice – 306 Great Conversation Starters” as well as numerous other CD and video programs.
Dave has had the pleasure of working with Wells Fargo, Southwest Airlines, Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, American Express, Northwestern Mutual, Medtronic, and over a dozen Chambers of Commerce all over the country.
Dave is a board member of the AZ Chapter of the National Speakers Association and the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix. In his past retail business, Dave has been awarded the 1998 Blue Chip Award for Small Business Excellence, was named a Top 5 Small Business Person by the Tempe Chamber of Commerce and a Top 10 Small Business Person by the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce.
Dave has been married to Randi since 1988, is the father to Lyndsi and Mathew and lives in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ. He loves golf, international travel, action movies, and his only real vices these days are a glass of chardonnay and a good Cuban cigar.
