Fortem International is a global event organiser for the B2B market, incorporating both Marketing and Sales. One of our largest events for the European and USA market is the Sales Innovation Expo.
Bernadette McClelland was one of our speakers who flew from Australia to deliver a keynote to a crowd eager to hear fresh ideas and insights on Conscious Selling – a modern look at business growth. I’m pleased to say she not only wowed the audience but the queue to have a signed copy of her book was testimony to the value she provided. We look forward to continuing our association with Bernadette into the future.
Bernadette McClelland has given three keynote presentations for Rev it Up – Sales Leader Summits – one in 2017 in Boston, one in 2015 in Chicago and our closing keynote speaker in Boston in 2019. Each time, the audience of B2B sales leaders was riveted, fully engaged, and gave great feedback. Her humour, her realness and her Aussie accent always adds to the flavour of our event. I would not hesitate to invite Bernadette for a future event. She was professional, prepared, and supportive of our efforts.
The last Home Show we did was our most successful ever and I don’t believe in coincidences as it correlated with your training at our conference the week prior. The members put into practice some of your ideas and it paid immediate dividends for them! I somehow wish we could have had you speak in between the Brisbane and Melbourne Home Shows so my members could have a better chance of success.
The Enterprise Sales Forum is a global network that provides new and innovative ideas to our member base of professional sellers and sales leaders. I first met Bernadette when she presented at a conference in Chicago and as an audience member I was impressed with innovative ideas that had the audience thinking differently whilst also enjoying themselves and realised she would be a brilliant resource for our community. Bernadette has spoken at several of our events in New York City and has also provided virtual Master Classes to our global network. Whilst being easy to work with, our Members love her savvy Australian approach and generous nature.
The CEO Institute is Australia’s premier membership organisations for business leaders in Australia and NZ. We provide a confidential roundtable style meeting forum which is enhanced through the provision of subject matter experts across a wide range of business critical topics. A topic often requested is on business growth through sales and sales leadership. Bernadette McClelland is one of our most respected speakers on this theme and member feedback, which is critical to us, is always reflective of a high value presentation. Bernadette has an engaging style both in person and via remote sessions and her knowledge and relevance to members needs score a 10/10 on many instances, with audience comments that include ‘one of the best speakers we have had’ and ‘Bernadette is an excellent speaker, very knowledgeable and articulate in communicating her message’. From an event organiser perspective, she has demonstrated an ability to tailor her presentation to meet each groups specific needs and is very easy to work with. We look forward to continuing to engage her.
Bernadette travelled from Australia for the 6th #SocialSellingForum Paris, where 500 participants shared their experience about Social Selling.
Through two keynotes, two panels and one workshop, she shared some fresh new ideas around neuroscience, social selling and the future of Sales. We would love to have her speak with us again in upcoming editions of the #SocialSellingForum.
