About Alex McNaughten

I am passionate about increasing the level of professionalism & performance in B2B selling globally!

THE PROBLEM: There are many innovative companies who never reach their true potential or global impact because they don't understand how to build their Sales & Revenue Function for scale and they don't know how to lead their customer facing teams to get the most out of them! Many people: founders, execs and reps alike, also lack confidence in their own personal ability to sell!

These potential breakdowns in your revenue function and in personal selling confidence can lead to your company either failing early, not delivering great customer experiences and never achieving the impact it could have!

HOW I HELP: I set up Sales Leaders (Originally Strategic Sales Consulting) in 2018 to address these breakdowns and in doing so help ambitious companies and sales leaders (primarily in the technology/digital space) solve more problems globally, through effective sales, leadership and revenue operations 📈

I have trained hundreds of founders, executives and sales professionals and worked across over 120+ Kiwi and Australian businesses, helping them to reduce their sales costs, speed sales cycles, maximize win rates, build out teams, expand into new markets and ultimately generate $10s of millions in new revenues

More Recently I co-founded Apprento, New Zealand’s first Sales Acceleration Platform. Growing your sales by growing your salespeople:

We are NZ's #1 at switching on sales potential with a mission to lift B2B sales capability through attracting, placing and training high potential people into sales and customer facing roles, coaching existing sales teams to drive greater results and building a community of future sales leaders through online & cohort based learning programmes:
