Hi – my name is Hazel Butters and I’m a phone coach. I help entrepreneurs, small business owners and startiup teams to get comfortable with outbound sales, having sales conversations and picking up the phone.
More than 700 entrepreneurs have been through my ‘Pick Up The Phone’ in-person workshops; and I host ‘Increase Your Sales in 73 Days’ 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 (DEC) 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. A few years later I started my first business in the USA – I moved continents within weeks and grew a second seven-figure business.
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 the Sales Hacker sales conference, Kaspersky’s CyberStarts Conference and academic institutions such as MIT and Tufts University.
I know that sales is transformative, fun and best when it involves lateral thinking – but only if you are visible, engage and ask for the sale. My ‘Increase Sales (Fast) as a Startup’ workshop has been run more than 50 times across London, Boston, Austin, Chicago and New York.
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.
