    SMPS Hawaii's Past President, Dale Keep will be talking about "Successful Business Development Tips" at the upcoming 2017 Pacific Building Trade Expo on October 24, 2017 at the Hawaii Convention Center.  

    Dale Keep will use his 24 years of experience to reveal tips and tricks that will lead to successful business development efforts. He will walk you through the cold call process, client interactions, getting follow up appointments, and most importantly, how to build relationships of trust.

    Dale will help you know what TO say and what NOT to say when talking with a client, and even give some live demonstrations.  His focus will be on the building trade industry and will teach five important steps that will lead to winning a project.  These aren’t“hard sell” techniques, Dale believes your relationship is key to your success… get to know your client and be yourself* (with a big asterisk). 


    Dale has a casual and entertaining way to make these business development techniques memorable and easy to apply.  Come join us for this informative seminar.
