We believe in the 21st Century that selling is everybody's business and everybody lives by selling something and that the definitions of ‘selling’ and ‘something’ are now very different. ‘Something’ used to be nothing more than products and services. In the 21st Century products and services are no longer enough on their own. Organisations have to be engaged in ideas, opinions, knowledge, wisdom, insight, advice and talent.

‘Selling’ used to be nothing more than product monologues – features and benefits dished up to a captive audience. In the 21st Century product monologues are redundant. Organisations have to do more than just ‘do a deal’. They have to engage with their increasingly informed clients, proactively identify opportunities and have a meaningful dialogue around service, relationships and results.

If you want to succeed in the 21st Century then you have to change your thinking to change your world.

At Barrett we believe that there are very few absolutes and everything is subject to reinvention. We believe that the best way to persuade people is with your ears – by listening to them.  We believe that selling & service go hand in hand - if you do not engage in proactive consultative selling you are doing a disservice to your clients and your business.

To us ‘selling’ is about the fair exchange of value. We give everybody access to life skills, tools, knowledge and personal insights so that we are all able to communicate and proactively sell ourselves effectively, ethically and confidently in any situation.  With Brain Science and Research at our core, we work across five key domains with respect to Sales MasterySales Consulting, Sales StrategyAssessment, Sales Training  and Sales Coaching

We instil the belief that in a 21st Century world selling is everybody’s business and everybody lives by selling something.
