About Me

Why I love selling…

My sister once said that I could sell ice to Eskimos.

I didn’t understand what she meant at the time, but as it happens, I naturally fell into selling.
I’ve been in sales for over 30 years. I love it. By that, I mean, I love building the relationships that build sales.
But I would never sell ice to eskimos – they don’t need it. I’d only sell something to someone who I knew would have their world changed for the better.

Corporate Days…

I’ve worked in various sales roles, up to Director level, for different companies including BBC Magazines and Hearst UK.

I’ve won awards for my sales ability; for growing business year on year, for smashing targets and for delivering engaging advertising campaign. I’ve been recognised for providing sales training and working collaboratively with different stakeholders all with the same end goal – increased sales.

Moira Barnes Sales Consultancy & Training is born

I left that career, and London, in 2013 to follow a different dream. I moved to County Durham to strike a better work/life balance with my family. So, I set up Moira Barnes Sales Consultancy & Training using my past sales experience and passion helping small and medium sized businesses fall in love with selling. I do this via Sales Training workshops, bespoke training or via 121 consultancy.
