Meet Doug Trenary
Named as one of the youngest speaking stars ever to receive the elite Sharing IDEAS Magazine’s Consummate Speaker Award, Doug Trenary is also electrifying audiences, readers, and the media on his way to the top of the business and personal performance world.
An award-winning author, Doug Trenary has published several books for improving salesmanship, and leadership roles. His first book, The SalesMind, captured the coveted Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for business books. He received this honor at the 2005 National Book Expo in New York City. His book, CD’s, and wide range of live programs are documented to have helped companies and individuals sell tens of millions of new sales dollars. More importantly, Doug has inspired people in all walks of life, from CEO’s to teenagers, to take their lives to a new level of success.
Doug Trenary began early in establishing his credentials as a rare performer. His distinct profile accelerated when he leaped from being a college basketball athlete to starting his business career selling day-to-day in the real sales trenches. He quickly thrust himself to the top and was honored as Salesman of the Year and winner of 26 awards in 3 years for Lanier Worldwide, one of America’s premier sales organizations, as cited in the classic book In Search of Excellence. He set sales records unequaled in his time from making an incredible 20 face-to-face cold calls per day to master the hyper- competitive business of selling copiers door-to-door.
Doug then became one of the youngest managers ever at 24 to be promoted to sales manager at Lanier to run a multi-million dollar budget.
Inspired with an entrepreneurial vision to contribute with his talents, Trenary then struck out at 25 and founded his highly-accredited and successful firm that has been, for example, featured in Selling Power Magazine as one of “America’s Best Sales Training Companies.” He’s delivered thousands of speeches, seminars, and workshops since 1985 on many, many topics and lives, knows, and communicates the standard that real success comes from living a balanced life and transferring your personal desire into helping others and creating value.
The ultimate bottom line is personal and professional results, and results happen where Doug contributes. He has spoken to and consulted with clients that look like a Who’s Who list of Fortune-level companies and business associations – organizations like MetLife, Sherwin Williams, ADP, Honeywell, Masco, Canon, and REMAX – companies that are using Doug’s riveting influence and content to generate their own documented record-setting performances.
Doug Trenary is a bottom-line performer in a bottom-line world. He is an established and powerful contributor who brings a laser-sharp presence, a fresh but experienced voice, and a cutting-edge body of content that will energize, humor, and captivate any group. But above all, every attendee, listener, viewer, or reader will be compelled to take an immediate next action step to secure their dreams . . . to get greater results.
