John Barrows is the CEO of JB Sales and author of the sales book for kids, I Want to be in Sales When I Grow Up. He has provided sales training and consulting services to some of the world’s fastest-growing companies like Salesforce.com, Google, LinkedIn, DropBox, and many others. His previous experience spans all aspects of Sales and at every level, from making 400 cold calls a week as an inside sales rep to the VP of Sales at his first startup that was later sold to Staples.
While John was fortunate enough to experience a fantastic sales education at every level throughout his career through the people he met and opportunities that arose, he noticed the incredibly limited amount of formal academic training available for the #1 global profession. He became passionate about improving the overall education and quality of Sales, and founded John Barrows Sales Training in 2013. To this day, John believes that in order for salespeople to advance their careers, they must continue to educate themselves. Sharing impactful tips and techniques from his own experience, and equipping salespeople with tools to succeed, are what motivate him to do this work.
