Stuart’s career started in direct sales in 1988 and during 1990s he progressed through the ranks, recruiting, managing and leading award winning sales teams and organisations in both UK and USA. In 2000, he collectively founded and built a £2.5m gourmet food company and due to the rigor he put into people development, it was awarded Investors in People within six months (unheard of at the time).
Stuart has spent over 25 years understanding the complexities of sales, making it his mission to demystify it in order to help individuals, teams and companies achieve their goals. He has in-depth knowledge and understanding of sales from the grass roots of direct sales to complex multiple stakeholder sales. His wealth of sales leadership has helped him lead and manage sales teams in excess of 250 people in different vertical and international markets.
At SBR Consulting, he has worked with over 40 companies from Fortune 500s to SMEs in various industries, helping them to develop sales strategies, train sales people and sales leaders, consultants and professional services.
His passion to help individuals, teams and organisations achieve their goals means he is a much sought after trainer, speaker and coach.
