Creating Sales Breakthroughs
for your business, for life.

Alicia Meneses Maples is internationally renowned for popularizing the term “Glass Children” via her TEDx talk in 2010. In addition to her breakthrough sales training programs, she is an advocate, speaker and facilitator for adult glass children around the world.

Training for Your Sales Team

Sales training based on neuroscience? A methodology that teaches your employees how to sell without hype or hyperbole? A construct that removes the fear of selling and replaces it with conversations that convert? Yes! Yes! And Yes!

It is called “Selling Without Saying a Word” and has been delivered to Fortune 500 Sales teams, small business owners and individual sales reps. Bring the training to your company that helped my client IPO for 2.1 billion dollars. 

It is a must-have for your growth and profitability.
