ABOUT THE McGinn Partnership

The McGinn Partnership leads companies via a strategic Framework to develop a Performance Protocol, and Cadence for business Development. The McGinn Partnership is focused at the C level, to develop leaders in sales and business development. Priding themselves on business transformation with over three decades of experience in building global business. While the market is cluttered with “Sales Trainers” who are generally engaged by Sales Management, The McGinn partnership is focused on the CEO’s ambition for the business and the right people goal alignments from that premise. “We are like doctors here to reduce pain” we diagnose like doctors, as we transform goals into ambition”. The mandatory ‘reinforcement’ follow through of The McGinn Partnership is what makes the difference as it means we are in the customer’s business and monitoring transformation for 12 months and we are supporting the development or replacement of the sales/BD people. The customer either has pain or not. If they have it, they need to want to have it fixed or not. It takes investment, focus and commitment to fix it, we only want customers prepared to commit to the journey.
