You might have the greatest sales presentation in the world; however if you don’t target, network and connect effectively -– you’re never going to get a chance to deliver your pitch and win new business. You’d be surprised how many people don’t do the things necessary to work on how they connect, prospect and network effectively. Many ‘old school’ tactics of expanding one’s network to increase the top end of the sales funnel don’t apply in today’s fast moving world. Lou Diamond’s ‘Before the Pitch’ comes up with a ‘game plan’ for people to improve how they network, prospect and build connections to expedite the sales process and maximize opportunities to get your foot in the door.


This is more than just Lou’s sign-off on his popular Podcast show, “Thrive LOUD.” Lou has developed a communication style that has become an extremely effective and efficient way to lead meetings, sales calls, and get your message across in a way that connects and gets to the point.


Great leaders and top producers are not only great sales people – they are AMAZING connectors. The ability to forge strong connections with your desired targets builds revenue streams that can last for decades. Designed for all audiences, this 90-minute session is focused on showing you the skills you need to practice, the mindset you need to maintain, and the authentic way you need to ‘be’ to strengthen your ‘connecting core.’ Attendees will be inspired by Lou to win more business, achieve longer and more fruitful relationships, ‘connect’ like a ‘Master Connector,’ and build a thriving culture.


Without a doubt – this is one of the most game-changing leaderships programs your team will ever experience. Lou’s been a top performed throughout his career and has a unique way of using the power of ‘connection’ to achieve amazing results. Designed for organizational leaders, senior sales professionals and top performers, this presentation centers on: a) Record setting goals; b) A focused and clear mindset; c) Leaders that empower their teams to do the same; d) Live and breathe their “SUPER WHYs”
