Checkout Don's DEMOFEST 2023 Session

DEMOFEST is by far THE biggest and best annual PreSales event brought to you, for FREE, by the good folks at Consensus.

Don was lucky enough to have both his own session and moderate the final Keynote Panel discussion on Artificial Intelligence and PreSales. Both sessions were Top 10 rated!

As well as a giant, virtual, multi-day event, DEMOFEST was also on the road in Autumn 2023. Don presented at both DEMOFESTx Dublin, on September 20th and DEMOFESTx London, on October 11th.

Winning Skills' "Value Discovery Maps helped a Senior SE on my team achieve a 94% win rate in a single quarter"

Winning Skills have been running PreSales skills workshops, keynotes and coaching since 2015. After a 30+ year PreSales career, Don, our Founder and Chief PreSales Evangelist, wanted to give something back to the craft and profession he loves.

Our clients include big names like Adobe, Deloitte, Informatica, SurveyMonkey, SAP, and many smaller to medium-sized and up-and-coming technology companies.

Right now, PreSales Leaders are being challenged with doing more with less, refocusing on 'Ruthlessly efficient Discovery', becoming more effective in the sales cycle, scaling and accelerating everything, enablement, onboarding, influencing, the demand for more and earlier Demos, the move to media creation, especially video; increased demand from Customer Success, BDRs, Marketing, Partner Management; the list goes, on and on. It's really not easy.

Technology companies come to us because they want both the personal touch and content that can be customised for them. They want their trainer and workshop facilitator to be the content author, not a contract facilitator; they want someone who has a reputation, credibility, authenticity, experience and a voice in the PreSales profession, someone recognised as a thought leader and someone both your experienced and new team members will trust.
