Gerry Layo: Coaching Companies to Greater Sales & Profits!
Gerry Layo is one of the nation's most dynamic and sought after speakers offering world-class keynote addresses, seminars, and workshops throughout North America. Gerry offers his audiences 20 years of street-tested, no-nonsense business experience. Gerry comes from a fresh new perspective on the platform today. Gerry began a sales career 20 years ago in a business-to-business sales capacity. He has since co-founded and run three companies, building sales organizations that grew into multiple offices throughout the nation. Before founding Sales Coach International, Gerry was the VP of Sales and Marketing for publicly traded ITEX where he ran sales training efforts for over 75 offices worldwide, dramatically increasing growth and profits.
Today Gerry is the CEO (Chief Energizing Officer) for Sales Coach International where he wears two hats. In one capacity, Gerry is booked throughout North America as a speaker/trainer to work with companies, organizations, and/or associations through high-energy keynote addresses, workshops, and seminars primarily in the field of sales, sales leadership, and customer service. When he is not speaking, Gerry is the Head Coach for The Sales Coach International "Coach Program." In this capacity, Gerry and a group of SCI Coaches work with companies throughout the US and Canada in an ongoing coach/consultant capacity. By introducing and implementing a core set of success philosophies and hands-on sales tools, SCI's Coach Program is helping to increase the sales and profits of companies throughout North America.
Through his extensive sales and sales management experience, Gerry has an incredible ability to sense not only what the audience needs and wants in the form of content, but he is also extremely effective at delivering the message the way the audience needs to hear it! His true gift is in making the audience turn inward to take full responsibility for their own success and then JUMP START into ACTION immediately after his sessions! Gerry uses a No Excuses-No Blame philosophy that he instills in all of his audiences so that they look only to themselves for answers. In doing so, Gerry is a master storyteller and hilarious speaker who pulls his audiences into his enthusiasm and empowers them to take on new challenges.
