    James Watson
    Fractional VP of Sales at Sales Catapult
    Before I met Karl, I struggled with being succinct and relatable about my new sales consulting business.
    It made me feel like I can hit the mark without having to have a bunch of wins
    … More under my belt before doing so.
    I knew Karl was the right choice for me because he impressed me with his knowledge and experience of professional storytelling.
    Working with Karl felt like it helped me overcome doubts about starting my own business. I’m now more focused and confident about telling my story and making more meaningful and memorable connections.
    He helped me realize that I wasn’t starting something new, but simply continuing the same journey that led to this next chapter in my professional career.
    Now I'm able to articulate what I do and the value I bring based on my real-world and completely relevant experience and success
    It feels like it has given me the ability to compress the usual time it takes to get to a point where I’m confident in connecting with networking partners and prospects in a compelling fashion. It’s based on who I am, why I do what I do, and how I can potentially help them once I truly understand and can help them achieve their professional objectives.

    I love that he comes at it from the customer point of view also. Thanks Karl for always giving such great advice around story telling and being so customer centric.
