Gunn Memorial Library Hosts Author Phillip Delves Broughton--The Art of the Sale

09/06/2012

5 Wykeham Road, Washington, CT 06793. Phone: 860-868-7586.

Meet the author of The Art of the Sale: Learning from the Masters About the Business of Life, an introspective look at sales and salesmanship. Philip Delves Broughton will be our featured guest speaker on Thursday, September 6th @ 6:30pm in an informal interview with Joseph Montebello. The book is a revelatory examination of the alchemy of successful selling and its essential role in just about every aspect of human experience. When Philip Delves Broughton went to Harvard Business School, an experience he wrote about in his New York Times bestseller Ahead of the Curve, he was baffled to find that sales was not on the curriculum. Why not, he wondered? Sales plays a part in everything we do*not just in clinching a deal but in convincing people of an argument, getting a job, attracting a mate, or getting a child to eat his broccoli. Well, he thought; he*d just have to assemble his own master class in the art of selling. And so he did, setting out on a remarkable pilgrimage to find the world's great wizards of sales. Please join us for this intriguing interview. Refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available for signing.
