"This is the first book that lays out a solid method for selling cross-company, cross-border, even cross-culturally where you have multiple decision makers with multiple agendas.

—Lee Tschanz, Vice President, North American Sales, Rockwell Automation

—Dave Stein, CEO and Founder, ES Research Group, Inc.

"Our business depends on delivering breakthrough thinking to our executive clients. Jeff Thull has significantly redefined sales and marketing strategies that clearly connect to our global audience. Read it, act on it, and take your results to exceptional levels."
