Off-The-Cuff Interview Question: “What would you say is the biggest common mistake you have seen when it comes to sales presentations?”
For example, a client’s team spent a year getting into position to deliver a one hour formal presentation. It was worth $20 million dollars over 5 years when they won the business. I asked their National Sales Manager, “How long do you rehearse?” I expected to hear, “We lock the presentation team in the boardroom for a week. We go over our parts, video and review. Then bring in at least 5 different audiences of team members to listen and hear their feedback.”
What he said was, “We are lucky if we do a run through in the back of Sylvia’s car before we walk in.”
Now you know why they hired me.
