How to Make the Horse Thirsty

BY YOKE VAN DAM
@ VOL 19 ON OCT 22, 2018

Yoke Van Dam: Often we hear the frustrations of business marketers and sales executives when they say to us ‘I can only lead the horse to water but I cannot make it drink’. So how do you do that? How do you create a need for the client and how do you persuade them that they want to buy from you? Yoke Van Dam aims to give you practical ideas to create a need for your client by not forcing the horse to drink but making it thirsty. As a behavioural change trainer, facilitator and speaker, she specialises in neuro-linguistic programming and has a decade of experience in training and teaching sales teams and executives in finance, publishing, marketing and engineering; and the automotive industry. The Power of Passion boot camp has been popular in South Africa and will soon be going to Pakistan. Yoke Van Dam has trained and presented more than 2500 hours and trained more than 2000 sales executives and sales leaders and has recently been interviewed on Mix FM. When she's not training, speaking and coaching, you'll find her enjoying a glass of wine, watching theatre with her husband,Etienne, hiking up a mountain or just jumping into a waterfall.
