Stand Up for Sales. Kurt Schoonraad
THE FIVE LESSONS STANDUP COMEDY CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT SALES:
South African standup comedy veteran, Kurt Schoonraad, is ready to help salespeople flip the script so they can sell more.
Distilling 20 years of comedy into a 30 to 45-minute laugh-out-loud talk, Schoonraad details the 5 great lessons of standup and what they have to teach us about sales.
“Sales and Standup have a lot in common. No show or sale is ever the same regardless of how many times you have run through the scrip and there is very little time to build trust, get attention and make a positive impression,” says Schoonraad. “While they might feel different, sales and standup face the same challenges and can learn the same lessons.”
This talk takes sales teams through the five key lessons of standup.
Schoonraad demonstrates the basic survival techniques comedians use to last on stage, hold their audience’s attention and close the deal, which is their case means getting the big laughs.
