Recently, I was lucky enough to a be keynote speaker at a Sales Professionals of Ottawa Networking Breakfast. When I looked around at the attendees, I realized that the level of sales and sales management experience in the room was incredible. There literally were some of the most successful and well respected sales professionals from the area in attendance, some of whom had been selling for well over 30 years.
I happened to look over at a very experienced sales professional whom I greatly respect. As I watched him taking notes, I was reminded of a very important lesson: You are never too old or too experienced to learn something new. In fact, I think that is probably the reason why he is one of the most successful and highly respected sales professionals in the first place.
