Platform of Trust

Steve Savad

The single most important ingredient for business success is TRUST. Before someone purchases anything from you, engages in any sort of business with you, or consider working with you, they must trust you. Ironically, most people are entirely worthy of trust, but they fail to enlist it. Most of the time this is easily overcome by explaining why you should be trusted.

Steve’s philosophy is based on a simple “platform of trust” that invokes three basic pillars (or “legs”) The first, is trust in the person making the sale/presentation. Next, the person on the opposite side of the table must trust your Company. Lastly, they must have trust in the product/service or offering.

Through a fun and engaging presentation Steve will show you how anyone can lay their “Foundation of Trust.”
