Created sales for 70,000+ trucks in a channel-based SaaS environment, $20 million sales to an automotive company via opening up that new market, winning Vendor of the Year in China, first for a foreign company turning around a consumer wireless business from subscriber losses to gains and cah flow from negative to positive. Having run sales, marketing and business development teams in the US and worldwide, I am ready to help develop sales and marketing plans that encompass direct sales, channel-based sales along with supporting marketing plans to both drive and augment sales efforts. I can help evaluate current sales teams, help create new ones, and work on innovative marketing plans to complement sales programs. Indirect, or channel-based sales in particular need a different approach to sales, marketing and support for channels. I can help design these programs and create a seamless operation from strategy through sales and marketing, through support. In one engagement, for example, I created and deployed a sales channel and all the requisite marketing programs for a company with no prior experience in the industry which resulted in sales of a SaaS-based product deployed on over 70,000 trucks. I also won vendor of the year from one of China's largest companies, first for a foreigner, and working with them to deploy the software and services throughout Africa and the Middle East. I also developed unique marketing programs and became a staple for call-ins and interviews on Sirius/SM, for example in addition to speaking at conferences, featured in publications, managing trade shows and more.

Global Business Leadeship
Patrick Schiele

Houston, Texas

Case 1: Building competitiveness via taking care of the customer My first decade in GE was spent largely serving 1 client, Southern Nuclear, an electric utility in the Southeast United States. In 1997, Jack Welch rolled out the six-sigma program and I was one of the first Black Belts (a term used for process improvement experts). At that time, the average nuclear plant lost $1million / day in revenue when shut down for maintenance, not counting maintenance cost. The average duration of maintenance was 45-60 days. So, a focused effort was made to pull together as a USA team (we largely operated as independent districts at the time) and partner with customers for real cycle time improvement without risking safety or quality. As the black belt, I reached out to every project manager to solicit their participation, we reviewed the goals of our customer (cycle reduction) and the goals of the company (stay competitive). We compared scope, schedules and budgets and learned that the average duration varied from 35 to 55 days. Why? Initial feedback was that every plant was different and that drove the variance. But upon analysis and discussion, we found that every plant had common units (high pressure section, low pressure section, stop valves, control valves, etc.) and upon examining each least common denominator, we found some interesting success factors. Some teams were better trained as they had repeat maintenance crews each year, some teams had better tools that were faster and safer, some teams had fixtures that allowed for disassembly faster with less clean up. Over the next several years, teams competed in a healthy manner to employ these various methods and gradually, the average duration moved to and below the 30-day mark. This not only saved the customer money but also reduce radiation exposure to certain employees (these were nuclear plants). The progress made was not via advanced statics (although six-sigma does offer that capability). Basic tools were used comprised of communication, collaboration on common goals, process mapping and logical problem solving. The same approach can be used in financial, “back office”, technical and customer service areas. Case 2: Growing the business in a phased approach My second generation in GE was spent largely focused on downstream oil / gas integrating and operating a series of acquisitions. While the companies varied in focus from vibration monitoring, to controls solutions, to temperature / flow / pressure measurement, to non-destructive test, the challenge was similar. Very innovative companies with great technology had grown to a point and were limited by their business processes and inability to scale. Teams were very customer centric and technical astute but did not have a repeatable process to transfer knowledge that enabled quality and productivity no matter where the work was done nor by who. As the service leader, first steps were to assure safety of the team, building and delivering the proper training and tools. The next focus was on quality. As these teams were global, customers and the company deserved to have the same caliber of work performed anywhere around the world. A global technical training and mentoring program was put in place that not only build that technical foundation, but also built a reputation with the customers that enhanced the brand and enabled price. Third was a focus on business acumen. Many of the upcoming leaders were promoted for their time in service or technical skills, not business skills. Good folks, but they just didn’t know how to build a business plan, manage financial risk or assess the health of the business. But over time, with coaching and accountability, they built their operating or sales business skills to the point of achieving double digit growth year / year and a global business of +$500 million. Teams were from North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and China. Today, many of those leaders can be seen in executive leadership roles running businesses of their own. Case 3: Building the talent pipeline More recently in 2014, I took at assignment with upstream oil / gas in Aberdeen, Scotland where, as part of our charter, we supported offshore oil activities along the West Coast of Africa. Upstream oil / gas has relied on expats, largely from USA or Europe, to operate offshore platforms and support bases. But a key requirement from the customer and the host country of Ghana was the utilization of local talent. This meant that local persons, who had no experience in oil field services, had to be trained on safety, quality, technical and business culture. Often, localization requirements were met in concept but not reality, by hiring 2 janitors for every 1 expat oil worker, but this does not meet the spirit of the exercise. As we built plans for the shore base (speaking to local real estate personnel, engineering contractors and government officials), we also spoke to local high schools and trade schools about the talent available and how we build a program quickly. We partnered with a local school to put a curriculum together and using expat instructors, began the training and certification program while civil construction began (civil works were done by local personnel). Standards in safety, quality, work processes were different, and it took effective communication, collaboration and goal setting with local community leaders to reach a common approach that maintained high standards without causing any negative messaging. Gradually, local persons were hired and over time they transitioned from the minority of employees to the majority until all the persons including the shore base manager are local Ghanaian citizens. This is great for the country and local community, as it is building economic growth. It is great for the company, as local persons are more cost effective than expats on premiums. And it is great for the customer, as these persons have more longevity and continuity for consistent work overtime.

Impactful Presentations, Sell Sheets

If no one bothers to read a 50 slide powerpoint, it doesn't matter how good your product or service is. I have been recognized as a leader in pitch deck development to win businesses, key licenses and sales by different companies and licensors. I start with a goal-oriented framework that outlines how to accomplish that, and then create an impactful presentation that cuts the fat and gets to the point. I can take your presentation and make it far more professional, shorter, and easier for your target audience to understand.

Brand Marketing & Product Positioning
Ned Ward

I hate sofa beds - they are a horrible compromise of a bed and a sofa, and do neither well. If your brand or product positioning isn't laser focused, you too run the risk of having a sofa bed that's not good enough at anything in particular to appeal to people. In my work I have found that Product Positioning and Brand Marketing affects the entire product cycle - product development and features, costing, packaging, naming, sell-in, advertising - when a brand and/or product has a tight, focused positioning for its target audience, everything falls into place. When it's not there, teams struggle to focus on which features to prioritize in banner ads, packaging or videos. Let me help you to create better, tighter positioning that can help your brands and products do better - even for existing products, I know that I can help with your marketing to make it tighter and better - before resorting to the brute force of AB testing.

Consumer Insights - Product Features to Consumer Needs
Ned Ward

$2.50/min

Los Angeles, CA

One of the challenges companies have is focusing on product features - I've found that making the switch to talking about consumer needs is far more effective way to convert consideration into purchase. I've done this at tech companies, where we were able to have a much bigger tent than just tech junkies, but parents who cared about the development of their child, to understanding child psychology and emotional needs translating into product development. Let me help you to translate your product benefits into clear, concise consumer benefits that will give a broader audience better insights into how your product can work for them, i.e. the "So What?" rule.

Media Trainer & Coach

I prepare executives for media exposure and public speaking with personalized media training programs. The comprehensive workshops help attendees from any organization perfect their media interview skills while ensuring the right messaging is consistently conveyed in the real world of broadcast and social media. Whether you're live at 5:00, edited into the 6:00 show, or featured on a talk show, you'll learn how the news media works and how to build the confidence and control to make it work for you. Attendees learn how to take control of the interview, neutralize loaded questions, and turn negative questions into positive answers. I design training workshops based on each client's individual needs. I talk to my clients, learn their issues, assess their needs, and develop a personalized training program. During the training, I simulate the type of on-camera interviews you'll face in broadcast news, print news, and on the scene while communicating under extreme pressure during a crisis. I make the interactions during the workshop as realistic as possible and as tough as necessary. My clients always appreciate the challenge, knowing they are now prepared to face any media interview with confidence.
