Hi – my name is Hazel Butters and I’m an outbound sales coach. I help entrepreneurs, small business owners and startup teams to get comfortable with outbound sales, to have sales conversations – and to pick up that phone.
More than 800 entrepreneurs have been through my ‘Pick Up The Phone’ workshops in London, Boston, Austin, New York and Chicago.
I’m a self-confessed technophile: I got hooked on technology when I worked with Digital Equipment Corporation (D EC) a few decades ago, and half of ‘Techie & Fuzzy’ a program which teaches kids to code.
I’ve lived in three different countries, across two continents and I believe in seizing opportunities. I funded my first business in London by selling my car and using the Yellow Pages (and a phone) to find customers. A few years later, I started my first business in the USA and grew a second seven-figure business – again, picking up the phone.
Over 19 years, I have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs and startups alongside Fortune 1000 technology companies including Adobe, BMC, CA, Dell, IBM, Oracle, and Siemens. I’ve spoken at events around the USA and Europe including Sales Hacker sales conference, Kaspersky’s CyberStarts Conference and academic institutions such as Tufts University and MIT.
I’ve written about outbound sales for Sales & Marketing magazine, Startup magazine, Sales Hacker, and Sales Hacker.
I know that sales is transformative and fun. It’s a chance to problem-solve and be creative. But you can only do that if you are visible, speaking with your prospects and asking for their commitmente.
If you want to shift your sales action, revise your sales process and want to know how to have sales conversations, then let’s set up a time and talk.
