In just over four weeks, Boulder’s network of inspiring young professionals is hosting Spark! It’s Boulder 2140′s exclusive event of the year where participants will get exposed to the likes of the city’s most visionary leaders in effective marketing. In this month’s piece, however, we’re featuring none of these persuasive minds. We want to bring across the significance of Spark! and highlight the network of professionals who are participating, so we invited a major event producer to help make this event an admirable exchange of ideas. This October we’re shining the spotlight on Ron Bostwick, a freelance event and music project producer, who accepted the invite to host Spark! He will also be our guest blogger to introduce the event’s power influencers.
Bostwick has respectable experiences in media and precious talent to connect with his audiences. It forms the foundation for the successful rise of radio hosts which helped bring about his involvement with the local station KBCO-FM and the Boulder International Film Festival including talks with Hollywood stars such as James Franco, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, and Chevy Chase. Throughout my own conversation with Bostwick I wanted to study his alluring quality of voice and manner of captivating his audience. In fact, our 60 minutes became a timeless account of Bostwick’s fascinating journey and I was convinced — this is the guy to host Boulder 2140′s Spark!Read More»

Since establishing a relationship of trust with your prospect is a vital aspect of being successful in sales, this perception that sales people will say or do anything to get a sale is very harmful to the success of a sales person. While a sales person needs to to be persuasive, it is far more important that the sales person is authentic and displays genuine empathy and understanding for the client than just looking to close a deal.
