"After 6 weeks of implementing our sales and marketing alignment system Wattblock:
> achieved the same number of sales in a two week period, equivalent to the total number of sales in the previous 6 months
> signed up their largest customer yet
> won a prestigious new “marquee” customer
> opened up a large upsell opportunity
> won a contract for an innovative solar concept
> improved sales margins
> tripled the size of their marketing database

“Peter Strohkorb's OneTEAM Method makes a lot of sense to me as it improves the fundamental relationship between Sales and Marketing PEOPLE so that they can work together as one team to lift sales results.
Only after these teams function as one can other initiatives such as sales training, power messaging and automation technology become effective.”

Its General Manager Mark Ellis retained Peter Strohkorb Consulting International to help the business' customer-facing functions to become more effective and to improve the customer experience.
Better customer focus, leading to more business.
Here is what Mark said about us:
"These days the challenges are getting harder. Any business that does not evolve with the changing economic climate can go backwards as they become a victim of a cut and paste mentality.
At Sensory Solutions we realized the need to challenge our thinking and culture in the desire to evolve and to make sure that we offer our clients relevance for their needs. We engaged Peter Strohkorb Consulting International to challenge our processes and thoughts in how we engage our customers to make sure we communicate our benefits and meet their needs.
Like most companies we had became too close to our business and to a certain point internally focused. Peter assisted in re aligning our thoughts and helped move us out of the “comfort zone” to help focus on the customer benefits, as opposed to the product features.
