The first year of training we gained $4 million, the second year $6 million, and the third year $10 million.

When a company signs Debbie De Grote to lead a sales team to increased productivity and sales revenue that is precisely what they get. Rick Campbell raves of the results saying, “All of her techniques were extremely successful. The year prior to Debbie’s training we gained $2 million in new business sales. The first year of training we gained $4 million, the second year $6 million, and the third year $10 million. In addition, we set standards on customer retention. The year prior to Debbie’s involvement we had a customer retention rate below 90%. The second year she was able to help us increase from where we were at to 93%, in 2012 she helped us raise it again to 96%, our all-time high in customer retention!”

Debbie is invested with her clients and proves it by being active in all her clients’ classes and running bi-weekly conference calls for the sales force. She shows pride in each undertaking as though she is an employee and pays close attention to the under-producing. Will Sides, Battery Systems Regional Manager, says, “During my annual reviews with each salesperson one of our “most help needed” from 2011, turned to be my top producer for 2012, shared with me a big part of his success was Debbie commitment to make him better. This salesperson from Las Vegas said she refused to let him fail by justifying excuses and making him see his true potential.”
