Alex McNaughten is passionate about the science of selling and helping businesses reduce the risk of missing out on revenues! 

THE PROBLEM: There are many innovative companies around the world who never reach their true potential or global impact because they lack basic B2B Sales Skills and don't understand how to build their Sales & Revenue Function! Many people: founders, execs and reps alike, also lack confidence in their own personal ability to sell!

These breakdowns in their revenue function and in personal selling confidence lead to many innovative companies either failing early or never achieving the scale they could have!

HOW HE HELPs: Alex set up Sales Leaders (Originally Strategic Sales Consulting) in 2018 to address this Sales Capability Gap and in doing so help ambitious companies and sales professionals (primarily in the technology/digital space) solve more problems globally, through effective sales & revenue operations. 

He has trained 100's of founders, executives and sales professionals and worked across 70+ 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

HIS PERSONAL GOAL: to help as many ambitious people and companies in the Southern Hemisphere firstly understand the importance of an effective sales function and then build total confidence in their selling ability - In doing so, accelerating the impact they make globally!
