SEPTEMBER SPEAKER

Mike Plant
President of Development
Atlanta Braves
Mike Plant was named President of Development in March, 2016. Prior to that appointment, as the Braves' Executive Vice President of Business Operations,  his responsibilities included overseeing all stadium operations, security, finance, personnel and special events, as well as the operations of the minor league clubs. As part of the Braves executive leadership team, Plant was instrumental in the Braves' efforts to secure SunTrust Park and its mixed-use development, and continues to manage the planning and execution of the construction projects, which are scheduled to open in Cobb County in 2017.

John C. Daniel
Founding Member
Wealth Preservation Group, LLC
 

John is well established as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional. In 2010, John launched his own firm, the Wealth Preservation Group, through which he offers integrated financial planning, insurance and investments in collaboration with a carefully assembled team of specialists and subject matter experts.

Having personally lived through the consequences of a lack of future planning, John is determined to spare his clients from that pain. He is passionate about the role he feels he must take in directing their lives to a better, more secure outcome. "Without proper guidance, most people will take the path of least resistance; it's simply human nature," John explains. "What may make sense for the long term may not always be doable in the present, however. My challenge is to help clients pursue the path that is most doable and meaningful instead of just taking the path of least resistance," he adds.

President – iCore Strategy
 
Christie Walters is a sales and business strategist with experience helping companies and individuals reach their highest level of potential.

Topic:
 
Make Sales Forever

Uncovering the customer’s buying motives is essential to making sales. And understanding why people buy is more powerful than learning how to sell.
 
Christie Walters has been helping organizations refine their selling and business strategy for over 25 years.Using the New York Times Best Seller Little Red Book of Selling by Jeffrey Gitomer as a foundation, Christie will share her perspective as a sales strategist and Jeffrey’s principles of sales greatness in this special presentation for the East Cobb Business Association 
 
During this interactive session, participants will have an opportunity to address topics
such as:
 
  • Why do people buy?
  • How do you multiply your sales opportunities?
  • How do you help prospects think in new ways?
  • How do you achieve sales greatness?
 
This is not a lecture, so come prepared to engage in the discussion, participate in the activities and you WILL leave with skills you can apply immediately.
