[CT] Connecting Things – The Sales Shift {September}

Hosted by our community partners, Connecting Things

Connecting Things is a monthly speaker and panel series for the creative community in Orange County.

When: Wednesday August 8, 7PM - 9PM
Where: WorkWell OC, 17322 Murphy Ave, Irvine, CA 92614


Join the September Connecting Things! Wednesday September 5th starting at 7PM at WorkWell co-working space in Irvine! It’ll be a night of insights you wont want to miss if your work involves promoting yourself/your product, winning clients, and making money (that should cover all of you).

Garrett Brown and Colin Coggins, founders of the Sales Shift, will share their thoughts on modern selling. They both started companies acquired by Google, and have worked on projects for some of the biggest companies and brands in the world. Through it all, they developed a refreshingly personal and emotionally intelligent approach to selling, which they call The Sales Shift. Garrett and Colin are going to join us to share insights that can:

  • help creatives better sell their ideas to clients, teams, and bosses
  • help entrepreneurs build the better team culture, instill purpose, and turn that into better sales results
  • help anyone interested in selling in a way that isn’t cringe-worthy and pushy

“The Sales Shift” is not a typical “how-to” sales training philosophy (because that would be an awful way to spend a Wednesday night). Garrett and Colin are going to talk selling for non-salespeople. Topics Garrett and Collin will dive into:

  • Connecting on emotional level with your audience
  • Why your purpose is more important than your goals
  • Leveraging the “finish line” to influence decision-makers
  • Getting your customers to fall in love with you every single time
  • Tools and Resources they recommend


About Our Community Partner: Connecting Things is a monthly event series - where doers and creatives can hang out, eat and drink together, and talk shop. Connecting Things is not a hardball networking group. We don’t expect to change your life through one event. We just hope to stir up your routine and make you pause and think about how and why you do what you do. Likely you’ll leave with a new perspective, a new friend, or at least a new excuse for coming into work late.
