About the Speaker - Gregg Dekker, Sales Effectiveness

Creative communicator and workplace strategist - speaking, consulting and facilitating on innovation, change planning, business development, and effective workplace design.

For most of my career, I've chosen assignments to take underperforming business territories or company divisions and solve how to increase revenue and profits. Next, I've broken down the elements of how the success was achieved and have helped others apply it. Author of BUZZ Making, Shatter!, the Creative Director, S.A.L.S.A., Say Anything, Lead Your Way, and other workshops for discovery. Probably the most fun of these was “71 Million Americans Say Your Cubicle is Stupid.” which I first performed at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.
Use of tools and an engaging style make client engagements enjoyable, direct and memorable. Prior to professional facilitation and speaking, I served as national sales manager for a major consumer products brand, and as a public strategy consultant.
