Kingston, founder and president of the Kingston Training Group (KTG), is a motivational sales trainer specializing in making more qualified net-new meetings for office technology dealers. This proven training method drives funnel opportunities, as well as increases both net-new sales and market share for her clients. KTG trains dealership sales teams to prospect more efficiently using phone, foot, email, referrals and social media. KTG statistically measures the results of training for each sales rep on a weekly basis to guarantee results of an at least 50-percent increase in net-new meetings company wide, or the training is free. Kingston's motto is "make more meetings, make more money," and she has proven this to be true time and time again.

Levine coaches copier/MFP sales reps to use LinkedIn to build their credibility, prospect for new business opportunities and protect their current account bases. He brings to the table 27 years of copier/MFP sales experience in Los Angeles, California, one of the most competitive markets in the world. In 2009, Levine started incorporating LinkedIn into his sales process. Using the LinkedIn platform and techniques he perfected, he closed more than $650,000 in new business in 2014 in conjunction with $1.3 million in total revenue. This was a net-new corporate account position with a major OEM. Levine built a pipeline of $1.7 million through developing relationships and using connections made through LinkedIn. He now coaches copier/MFP sales reps to use LinkedIn to maximize their success.
