In this week's episode of the 'Renegade Recruiter Unleashed' podcast I interview Jermaine Edwards Author of the book 'Key Account Hack: 8 steps to creating massive and predictable growth from your Key Clients in 90 days'
Jermaine has been through almost every sales experience you can imagine. He's been hung up on, spilt coffee on a customer, lost a major client and even had his daughters 'my little ponies fall out' of his briefcase during a C-Level meeting (Yep that really happened). In this interview Jermaine talks about some of the things Recruitment and Search Firm Owners can do to extract more revenue from potential clients and customers and how to shorten the sales cycle.
