About the Class

Christine Beckwith attended an elite business session in NYC with an elite group of well-known leaders (Collin Powell, Jack Welch, Richard Branson, etc.) for an intimate sit down to explore the topic of proper business planning. Despite the differences in their leadership, sales styles and even business plans, Christine recognized that these business leaders had 7 core philosophies that mirrored each other without exception.

As a new executive, Christine would leave this important business session and start a journey to move her last-place sales district of 125 employees on a path to the top seat in a 12-district national mortgage company.

Blueprinting for Success is a study in the quickest path to success by applying 7 principals to daily sales interaction, avoiding pitfalls that derail sustaining and fulfilling a business plan and truly a proven boom for business when followed.

As written about in her now best selling book, Wise Eyes- See Your Way to Success, Christine will share these tips and do an interactive form completion that can be a beacon for your own business plan. DON’T MISS THIS dynamic seminar for people needing and wanting to accelerate their careers.
