Do you got skills? After this H+G you definitely will.
3/24 @ 6:30pm — Benjamin’s Desk


That’s right, we’re back with Hustle+Grow #5!

Do you got skills? After this H+G you definitely will.

I’m super excited about the lineup we have for you. We’re going deep with some sales experts on how they did it, and how you can too.

On the Docket:

H+G Action Session: How to Create a Referral Machine w/ Scott Messer of Sales Evolution

Scott Messer

Everyone wants referrals yet top introductions are hard to get. Learn from Scott Messer the top secrets to generating a consistent stream of high-quality introductions and referrals—unless you really like cold calling!

If you look at the Philly 100, every year Scott Messer and his firm Sales Evolution has at least a couple of clients on the list—including the tech companies you all know and love like TicketLeap, Arcweb and Seer Interactive.

Considered one of the top sales educators and coaches in the region, Scott and his team have coached thousands of salespeople and sales leaders to higher levels of personal and business success. His highly counter-intuitive sales methodology, Guess Free Selling, teaches students to stop closing deals and start winning business. And, particularly relevant to this discussion, his personal book of business is generated 100% by referrals.


Q&A Expert Session: Growth Strategies w/ Mike Dershowitz, CEO of ModSolar

Mike Dershowitz

Mike’s a heavyweight when it comes to fast growth and customer acquisition. With a measly $3,500 cash investment in 2011, Mike has since skyrocketed ModSolar to 230% year-over-year growth.

In Mike’s words, “The Silicon Valley view of the world has skewed the entrepreneur’s view of a successful company.” This Philly Biz Journal 2015 40 Under 40 honoree will dish the straight talk on what it really takes to launch and grow a successful business—right here at home.

Come armed with your questions as Mike is ready to reveal all about the sales strategies that worked for him and his team, and even those that didn’t. This session is not to be missed.
