About Charmaine Keegan
Charmaine grew up on a farm in the UK to a family of very little means. Humble beginnings had its daily challenges, the embarrassment of queueing up for a free school lunch ticket was just one of them. She learnt resilience, positive mindset, and the skill of reframing situations.
Desperate to make money, at 11 she took up a weekend job in a local Farm Shop and quickly learnt that understanding other people made a difference in how we communicate, impact, influence, persuade and motivate others to buy. She learnt how you are in charge of your results, how to be accountable.
Quickly it dawned on her how so much of selling was actually ‘simple’ (smiling, being interested in other people, your intention to assist them, be genuine, make the interaction about them and not about you).
To follow was then 20 years of high-level sales where she excelled with unpreceded results. Since 2009 she has run her own training company sharing with others the simple formula for high performance and success.
Charmaine has trained thousands of professionals in her 27-year career. She believes sales is fundamentally good communication and exceptional customer service skills combined with operating with a headspace of being commercially minded – and to do all this with integrity.
All Smarter Selling’s training programs have been developed (and trademarked) by Charmaine and are always evolving as communication evolves. Her burning desire to empower others to be confident in embracing the word ‘sales’ infuses each event she undertakes. Her speaking engagements are engaging, fun, interactive and highly practical. She makes it easy for you to sell and your customer to buy.
On her talks you learn how to be seen as the trusted advisor. You know how to engage in such a way that you are ensuring you have recognised (and created) all the opportunities to be of service to that customer. You know who to be in front of, you know what to say and how to say it.
She is also a trainer of NLP (how we operate), Hypnotherapy (unconscious communication) and Time Line Therapy (recognising your baggage and the baggage/beliefs of your customer).
Charmaine has worked with over 4,000 people and assisting them in understanding how to bring in commercial thinking and if they have a team – how to cascade that through to them so everyone is confident and empowered to embrace selling, accountability and results.
Charmaine is a true sales expert. What strikes me about Charmaine's work is her sharp mind, brilliant insight and ability to articulate an effective message simply. Her work is the real deal. Her love and passion for sales is evident throughout her speaking engagements as she gets the audience rethinking what sales actually is. Her fun, light-hearted way of addressing an audience immediately puts them at ease. On stage she is the same as off- natural, down to earth, practical and sincere. Your audience will be inspired, motivated and driven to succeed. As a speaker she holds an audience, keeps them engaged and interested. Adapting to all audience types her talks are always a hit for its engagement, laughter and overall, the powerful key messages on "how to build trust and how easy it is to sell"
