"Working with sales teams and business owners, collaborating with the community, and coaching up managers was the most fulfilling aspect of my forty years in media sales. As the owner of Drake Media Group, I offer advisory services and open support on revenue management through writing and content distribution."
Why Revenue Management?
It's the collaboration of all sales and marketing entities working towards customer development and top-line growth.
A thriving sales organization requires everyone to be open to new strategies, re-examine how they deliver customer value, and be determined to grow revenues. Sellers and managers with a shared vision on a path of self-improvement lead to better chances for success.
