Meet Our Founder & CEO, Bob Nicols

 

If it can be accomplished in sales, Bob Nicols has done it. Some may say he was “born with it.” Not so, and he even wrote a story about it. Bob knows that ANYONE can be successful in sales, no matter what their level of experience, if they just ASK the right questions. Bob’s highy energetic & inspiring lectures have kept his name at the top of the keynote speaker lists for several national & worldwide technology conferences.

He is a trusted advisor to c-level executives & senior managers for countless organizations, spanning multiple industries, proving the universal truths behind the process he created. Still, after 40 years, Bob gets calls thanking him for the impact his program has had on the lives, both professionally & personally, of countless sale professionals, managers, and business owners.

 

Bob Nicols has over 40 years of experience in sales, sales management, executive management and sales process development.  In 1990, Bob founded Burton Training Group (AXIOM Sales Force Development), after being a top and highly recognized performer in sales, sales management and executive positions within the technology sector.

He has managed and mentored thousands of sales people, sales managers and senior managers and been responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in sales. For more than 30 years he developed and delivered sales programs that have become the standard for leading companies, including AT&T, Equifax, Verizon Wireless, CommScope, Pactiv, Altura Communications, ESPN and Canonical.

When Bob is not hard at work teaching, creating, or mentoring, he takes great joy in being the drummer in his band Melt Behind the Wheel. Shameless plug? You bet!  You can find their original EP on iTunes, Spotify and if you ever find yourself in Jax Beach, come out for a gig!
