Neil Godin International Inc. provides business and professional development training and  coaching. We work with companies and organizations of all kinds and specialize in working with  independent owner-operated business.

Business Development + ‘People’ Development

We offer two tracks in our training: Business Development and ‘People’ Development. Business Development focuses on strategies for attracting customers and making sales. ‘People’ development focuses on leadership and team building – emphasizing the skills needed to deliver employee and customer experiences that build loyalty and keep those customers coming back – and referring others.

The two tracks are synergistic: “1+1=3”

Training in Marketing & Sales, Leadership, Team Building

Cultivate a healthy body, quiet mind, open heart and vibrant spirit.

Conflict Prevention

Conflict Prevention is our ‘Big Idea.’
The costs of conflict are enormous (in stress-related illness and so much more). But, with insight and skill, most conflict can be “stopped before it starts.”

Team building

Team Building

Participants say our workshops are as helpful in their personal lives as their lives at work. Our skill-building approach equips people to “attack the problem” – and protect each other – in difficult situations.

Sales training

Sales Training

We drill deep to uncover and act on opportunities to improve lead generation, objection handling, and ‘natural’ sales closing. Key: Helping salespeople become ‘trusted advisors’ to your customers.

Leadership and Team Building Workshops

Our in-house leadership and team building workshops focus on the practical skills people need to lead and participate effectively at work. We focus on building insight and awareness, then on skill-building, with emphasis on interaction and practice.

Break-through Coaching, Training and Speaking

From Marketing, Sales and Service, to Leadership, Team Building and Conflict Prevention and Resolution

Neil Godin International Inc. is a multi-faceted training, speaking and publishing firm primarily serving Canada and the US. As a speaker Neil Godin has entertained and inspired more than 300,000 people from coast to coast.

As a trainer and workshop leader he has written and delivered programs for many major organizations, including The Royal Bank, Telus, Shell, Ford, Dun & Bradstreet, McDonalds, Subway, KPMG, and the Governments of Canada, Ontario, and British Columbia, as well as numerous cities and towns, school districts, colleges, universities, and not-for-profit agencies.

As a hands-on business coach he has worked with hundreds of small to mid-size companies of every kind. (Note: Thanks to his association with BC Wood and FPInnovations, Neil has developed a special focus on value-added wood product manufacturers both in British Columbia and across Canada.)

A single source for both business development and ‘people development’

For many years we have served training and workshop clients with programs that focus on both business development (marketing, sales and service), and human development (leadership, team building, communication, and conflict prevention and resolution).

We believe strongly that delivering exceptional service is ‘the’ key to success for every kind of organization, and that people skills are essential for success in service delivery. (People skills training has additional benefits as well, including better management-staff relations, reduced stress and stress-related illness, improved performance, and better employee retention).

Sales Training and Marketing, Sales and Service Strategy

While most of our sales training clients are healthy businesses that want a rapid and significant increase in sales, we also work with small to mid-size companies in difficulty – where sales ‘always’ have to be doubled (or more) immediately. In our sales and marketing training programs, we share fast-acting strategies and skills that have been proven in the ‘trial by fire’ of this turnaround work – creative approaches that you can use to increase your sales rapidly as well – no matter what business you’re in, or what condition your business is in. We also offer cutting edge training in customer service, and in overall marketing, sales and service strategy. Please click here to learn more.
