[Legacy post: Small Business Talent] My special guest on the podcast today is Meridith Elliott Powell. We’ll be discussing her latest book: Winning in the Trust & Value Economy: A Guide to Sales Success and Business Growth.
Meridith has a very interesting professional background. She began her career in corporate sales and marketing and was eventually recruited to executive level positions in commercial banking and finance. This combination of experiences gave her the breadth of knowledge needed to bring the numbers and the people side of business together.
About seven years ago, Meridith left the corporate world and launched her own firm. During the recent economic downturn, Meridith coached her clients on how to take advantage of the changing economy resulting in more productivity, personal passion and profits.
Meridith’s signature high-energy communication style and her ability to rapidly connect with people make her a sought after speaker, trainer, and business coach. She’s an active member of the National Speakers Association, the American Society of Training and Development, and Lessons in Leadership. After achieving her business coaching certification, Meridith also became gold master certified in strategic planning via the Haines Centre and the University of San Diego. Lastly, Meridith increased her knowledge of communication styles, human behavior and their impact on professional relationships and organizational development by earning her master certification as a human behavior specialist.
Meridith’s professional background and training allows her to support her clients in their efforts to use trust and value, not low price, as a competitive advantage in today’s value-based economy. That’s something that we can all benefit from. Scroll down to the Podcast Player now and listen to Meridith share her business building wisdom!
