Paul is the nation's leading expert in sample-to-sales conversions by driving consumer trial in the grocery store/supermarket environment. His company, Busy Bee Promotions, Inc., conducts thousands of in-store demos per month. Clients big and small, start-ups and Fortune 100 companies seek his expertise in converting their sampling efforts into sales. Have Paul train your team on the best demo-selling methods in the grocery store/supermarket environment, which offers unique challenges and amazing opportunities. Take advantage of his 50+ years of sales experience and have your team learn the same skills that his team uses to convert samples into sales at twice the industry average. His lively presentation will energize your team and create amazing and lasting results! His teaching style will include workshops, role-playing and real-life examples learned from the trenches. Be prepared to take many notes, have fun and sell out!
If your business has a fleet of vehicles, give that fleet another role; marketing your products and/or services while on the road (or parked)! In this informative program, Paul will share his experiences in the dynamic branded vehicle industry (graphic wraps, experiential marketing, mobile platforms, etc.). He shares best practices learned on the road to his own success with examples of vehicles he and his company designed and built out for Fortune 100 companies like Pepsico, Beyond Meat, Starbucks, AT&T, Coca-Cola, and many more. Your eyes will be opened to the opportunity to realize a higher R.O.I. than any other advertising medium— even if your company's fleet comprises just one vehicle. Topics covered: What types of vehicles make the best candidates for branding your product(s)/service(s), Dos and don'ts with creative and copy, which surfaces on the vehicle should communicate which messaging, and so much more! Paul is pictured here with one of his designs for illy issimo ready-to-drink coffee.
In 2014, Steve Forbes' publisher selected Paul to write the chapter on sales for Forbes' book SuccessOnomics, and there's a good reason for that. Paul has been selling his entire professional life, takes his craft very seriously, and has the track record to prove it. This lively and dynamic program will remind your sales team how SIMPLE selling really is without glossing over the fact that it isn't EASY. Sometimes your sales force gets overwhelmed with new presentation and closing techniques and the latest technologies designed to streamline processes. That's all fine and, frankly, necessary, but Paul advocates practicing the basics of sales before getting too fancy. Without a foundation of the fundamentals, new techniques and systems collapse because basic human psychology doesn't change. Paul's successes in sales include careers in outside and inside sales, automobiles, home improvements, display advertising, premium vacuum cleaners, and radio time sales. Nowadays, he sells his current company's marketing services to clients from startups to Fortune 100 firms, with a closing ratio north of 50% on cold leads and countless millions in revenue. Paul keeps this talk interesting with role-playing, colorful anecdotes, and funny experiences learned from over 50 years in the trenches.

Girl Don't Say We're Thru
Paul was a part of the underground Freestyle Music scene in the early 1990s. This original track was written by Vinny 'Spinnin D' Dante, Nick Schodtler, and Paul. All vocals and instrumentation, and production by Paul. Cover art by Carl Paoli.
Dream City Sonata
Paul is a quasi-historian when it comes to the 1893 World's Fair, and in 1993, he wrote this instrumental piece after being inspired by the beautiful and temporary architecture on the fairgrounds. All instrumentation and production by Paul. Cover art by Carl Paoli.
Flight Over Dream City
One stormy evening in his recording studio, Paul sat down in front of his synthesizer, and this piece just came out of his fingers. He didn't write it; he just improvised. This piece has very little song structure. It just does its thing. Once again, the inspiration was the 1893 World's Fair, but this time, this is what Paul heard on an imaginary flight over the fairgrounds. All instrumentation and production by Paul. Cover art by Carl Paoli.
