Steve Woods, National Director of Sales, Lennox Industries

“The day after I heard Melinda speak, our company had an important meeting with Walmart. She had showed us how to read body language, which gave us the confidence to know exactly when to ask for decisions. Just as important, we knew whether to ask for more. Her strategies made an immediate positive difference… we are now growing a win-win relationship with Walmart as a valued client.”
