Keynote Topics

What turns customers on more than realising that you are fully committed to driving their outcomes? This highly engaging keynote focuses on the mindset and skill sets necessary to be a highly persuasive seller that your clients cannot live without.

Today’s buyers are frazzled, fickle and frustrated. Just like you and I. How do you capture the attention of already overwhelmed consumers?

This practical and highly engaging session will have the penny dropping and the lightbulbs illuminating as your salespeople learn what a “typical day in the life of your customer” looks like.

According to Forrester Research 89% of sales conversations are considered a waste of time, and 60% of qualified opportunities end in no decision. We lose more deals to status quo than any other competitor. In this fast paced Keynote Shelley will teach your salespeople how they can CRUSH THE QUO.

Shelley Walters is the Founder of The Sales Counsel, a boutique Sales Enablement Solutions company based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

It’s awesome to have you here, and I really hope you enjoy what my team and I have put together for you.

I have 21 years of B2B sales experience, and have built a long and well-established reputation for high sales performance.

Shelley started from the bottom (trust me), but she got my first big break at the age of 19 in office automation sales,

After 5 years I moved on to sell asset finance for South Africa’s first BEE Asset Finance Company.

Later I took the role of sales and marketing manager heading up media advertising sales for Kingfisher FM, where I featured as a co-host of the breakfast show for a number of years.

In 2011 I moved from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg after being head hunted by Raizcorp to mentor over 60 companies in their portfolio,

But I always knew that I was destined for business, I left the safety-net of full time employment in 2012 when I founded my speaking business, Shelley Walters Inc, followed by The Sales Counsel (Pty) Ltd in 2016.

I am incredibly privileged to travel all over the world to speak to a variety of audiences. and I am also honoured to be able to represent South Africa as a panelist in the annual international Women in Sales Awards in Europe.

Her career began in a cut-throat office automation industry, working her way up from direct sales to negotiating at a boardroom level in just 3 months.

Later, Shelley served as the first Business Development Officer for South Africa’s first black-owned finance house, Sadiba Asset Lease, until she joined the team at Kingfisher FM in 2007.

For four and a half years, Shelley served as the Breakfast Show co-presenter on Port Elizabeth’s popular radio station.
