I’m Monika D’Agostino, the founder and Chief Sales Officer at Consultative Sales Academy.
Born in Vienna, Austria, I moved to the US in 1994 after a successful 17-year career in the insurance industry where I had worked my way up in an almost 100% male-dominated hierarchy to become one of a very few successful female managers. Faced with a completely new business world in the States, I quickly embraced the fast-paced environment without losing sight of my European roots and remembering that in the end it is people who matter. This insight has helped me connect with business associates and friends alike.
For over a decade I have worked with companies and individuals to help them grow their client base through a consultative sales approach. By doing that I feel that I am changing sales as we know it one step at the time. Many people think of sales as a necessary evil rather than a fun business practice that will help grow your client base.
My friends refer to me as the truth barometer because of my ability to determine if a situation or a person is authentic. Honesty and authenticity is the key to my success in life and in business. In my opinion it is also key to a successful sales approach.
To this end I founded the Consultative Sales Academy to provide executive Coaching and Consultative Sales Training to Sales Professionals, small business owners and any professional who has sales responsibilities.
I partner with highly motivated professionals using a “no nonsense” approach to remove doubt and create both individual and organizational success.
