I think I was just told to bring them a new client so they can use our product?

Am I reading this correctly? This might be the most eloquent no I've ever had and I believe he told me to bring him a client that they can use, and then they'll use our product for the client they just onboarded. Am I reading this correctly?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think he is trying to fuck you.

I'm gonna try this at the bar this weekend. "Hey excuse me ma'am, I'd like to buy you a drink and then perhaps galvanize an integration. My Uber's on the way."

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Anybody who says galvanize that is not Liam Neeson in Batman Begins can fuck off into the Yangtze River. He wants you to bring a deal.

Anyone who would use the word β€œgalvanize” in the real world doesn’t deserve to be sold by you.

I googled the word galvanize just to make sure I wasn't an idiot that didn't know there were multiple definitions... lol. This guy sounds like a dick. Please tell me you plan on asking what their benefits plan is like, since you're being offered a sales position at their organization.

AE’s - here’s a very client-centred way to gather information about β€˜WHEN’ a decision needs to be made. Doing it this way will help you shorten sales cycles and build trust. Keep in mind - not every question I ask in this example is a perfect fit for every buyer, but should give you a good place

How do you all handle a situation where a prospect has a contract approved and is ready for signature, but one of their family members just passed away? Want to be extremely sensitive to the situation...feel there's never a "right" time to reach out and never want to be salesy...
