Closing the Deal
This month our meeting was held at All Occasions Banquet & Catering Facility. We were treated to delicious food & beverages. We also got to tour their beautiful newspace, The Barn. Our speaker this month was Sherry Logan. She is the Destination Sales Executive for the Renaissance Columbus Downtown hotel. Sherry shared with us some words of wisdom about how to close the deal.
* Believe in what you're selling
* Have integrity in what you sell
* Networking is very important; everyone has something to offer
*Ask for what you want and everything is negotiable
