Justin Black


Justin Roff-Marsh

Justin will show you how to exploit the enormous unutilised capacity in most sales environments to double the rate of new-account acquisition. His radical plan revolves around division-of-labour and the centralisation of scheduling. He proposes an environment where each salesperson performs four appointments a day, five days a week – and where all other activities are performed by a central sales-support team. The end result is a smaller team of field salespeople and a larger support team; no net change in costs, but a massive increase in the volume of sales activity. Justin’s appearance on The Melting Pot is still one of the most listened to episodes of all time (click here to listen) and his book, The Machine: A Radical Approach to the Design of the Sales Functionis one of our favourites.
