"Whale hunting is a powerful sales method proven over years of implementation, which involves the entire organization, and ultimately transforms the company’s culture.”

The Whale Hunters®, a strategic sales coaching company that helps entrepreneurs and small businesses land big accounts, has launched chapters in the southern Florida regions of Naples/Ft. Myers and Tampa. Four local entrepreneurs have been named to oversee and lead the chapters as certified partners of The Whale Hunters. In Naples/Ft.

These certified partners will host workshops and offer consulting services to teach the firm’s proven methodology for growing sales exponentially by way of landing and serving large accounts. All four partners completed The Whale Hunters’ rigorous educational Boot Camp to become certified in delivering the proven methodology.
