SLMA Radio host Jim Obermayer interviews
Shawn McLaren, Chairman of ConnectAndSell.
In the last interview Shawn told us how a salesperson could have 6-8 meaningful conversations per hour. Maybe this time he will reveal even more.
In 2007 Shawn gave up his quest for the perfect golf game because he discovered, as he terms it, a system that liberates Sales Warriors (aka Conversation Pigs) by providing so many conversations with decision makers so efficiently that it removes all excuses for non-performance and brings smiles to the usually harried faces of VP’s of Sales and CMOs.
Shawn’s early successes included selling encyclopedias door to door in the Michigan winter and building both code and company for the world’s first mainframe storage system; a system that included security algorithms that rivaled the unbreakability of Navajo Codetalkers and would have stumped the Enigma machines that helped the Allies win WW II. Shawn’s only regret in life is his failed tryout as a pitcher for the New York Yankees in his mid-30s. He is plotting his revenge in the form of a hostile takeover of the franchise thanks to the expected growth and success of ConnectAndSell. Shawn is a founder and Chairman of ConnectAndSell and was its CEO for 3+ of its formative years.
