Jean MacDonald, DTM
Coach | Corporate Trainer | Author | Speaker
Jean MacDonald is the acknowledged “Queen of Connections” a specialist in teaching business people how to turn contacts into leads, and leads into strong customer relationships. Her philosophy is that every employee is a salesperson; from corporate sales teams, to customer service reps, to office support staff. She is a popular speaker with a humorous style and shares the relationship-building and follow-up techniques that have proven so successful in her own career.
- Jean’s career began in the trenches of the commercial insurance industry, where she rapidly rose from the ranks of new sales associate to become the owner of her own multi-million dollar agency by the age of 35.
- In 1998, Jean retired and sold that business and moved on to a new career venture with Mary Kay Cosmetics. She has since become one of its top recruiters and sales trainers, establishing and leading teams across the nation. During that time her sales have earned her the use of ten cars, five of those being the iconic “Trophy on Wheels” pink Cadillac.
- Jean is a member of Toastmasters International and is a Distinguished Toastmaster, a designation held by fewer than 2% of Toastmasters worldwide. Her last book, Get Up, Get Dressed and Get out the Door!, was published in 2012 to rave reviews and her latest, Find the Fortune in the Follow Up, is sure to be recognized as another must-read.
Always an enthusiastic and motivated entrepreneur, Jean shows business people how to sell themselves first, establishing the trust and credibility that leads to long term business success.
