In this episode of the Coaching Masters Series, I hunted down Tom Searcy, and got him on to talk about his book “How to close a deal like Warren Buffett” – and what he personally learned from getting inside the mind of Warren Buffett.
Tom is a nationally recognized author, speaker, and one of the world’s most prominent experts on large account sales. His methods of unlocking explosive growth were developed through years of real-world success. By the age of 40, he had led four corporations, transforming annual revenues of less than $15 million to more than $100 million in each case. And he wrote three books.
