Mike Lever

Mike Lever

British Sales Trainer of the Year, Speaker, Coach

Tap into Mike’s FTSE100 senior management background. He has over 17 years of banking experience, 25+ years’ sales experience and more than 20 years in training & coaching.

When Mike shares his knowledge, experience and research on the psychology of customer behaviour, you’ll realise how easy it is to sell more, to more customers and more often.

Mike is particularly interested in the behavioural elements of development and sales from the customers’ angle. He helps sellers, managers and directors to grow themselves and their business by sharing this knowledge.

Psychology of Consumer Behaviour

Why do your customers buy from you (or not)? Selling is easy, but people make it complicated. Especially customers. And sellers. Mike is frustrated by sellers and business owners who forget to think like their customer. Not their customers; their customer.

Going beyond marketeers’ typologies (which focus on group behaviour), you’ll discover what influences individuals to buy and what you can need to do to make it happen.

This seminar and workshop includes:

  • Unlocking the root of buying decisions
  • Recognising where client journeys really begin
  • Knowing how to invest wisely to get the right balance

By the time the session is wrapping up, you’ll be armed with three interlocking tools that make it easy to recognise the right things to do to sell more, more often. You’ll also understand what it means to – and why you need to – get your customer on the green line.
