Referral Revolution™ Workshop

We all love getting referrals, and for the majority of us it is the perfect way to get new business and source new candidates. However, very few businesses have a process or system to encourage and grow referrals rates.

If you are a bit like most people, you will be excellent at what you do, but not always great or happy selling what you do and building the referrals that could follow. It doesn’t matter if you have been in business for a few months or many years, for most of us, effectively marketing our services is just plain hard.

The Referral Revolution™ is a total business business methodology which addresses these issues and helps you to significantly increase your sales and referral rates through the virtuous circle of 3C’s:


Your Clients


Engage with and educate your clients to buy more from you more often, whilst regularly referring you the right kind of prospects using a mixture of amazing service, Super Soft Selling™ and a highly effective referrals process.


Utilise the power of world-of-mouth and make you and your business totally referable.


Your Colleagues


Harness the secret sales force that already exists within your business, and capture the potential of cross-selling to your existing client base. Dramatically improve internal networking and cross departmental referral rates.


Your Community


Win more business more often by talking to the right people at the right time, in the right way.


Build highly effective and trusting strategic relationships whilst expanding your network and spreading the right referable message.


Learn to use the art of Super Soft Selling™, a simple yet highly engaging method where no one feels sold to and everybody wins.


“I had the pleasure of seeing James work in facilitating, role modelling and analysing within a workshop. With charm and wit he guided folks through the workshop process handling disparity of views, reticence to engage to deliver a clear set of agreements. Nice to see role modelling what he coaches.”


John Morton, Interim CTO / CDO / CIO, Big Data Advisor, Architecture and Strategy
