I’m highly biased because we’re on similar wavelengths, but Julie offers a human approach to sales that may be the best solution to what’s currently wrong with sales.
Julie led the training of four groups of 20 students aged 14-15 in employability skills. This involved delivering two discrete activities: ‘Choose Me’, in which students rotated in 3-minute simulated job interviews, taking turns in the role of both interviewer and candidate; and ‘Move It’, in which teams for 5-6 students take roles in the team production of paper envelopes to a quality standard and tight deadline. In the process, Julie demonstrated her own strong skills of clear instruction, group management and encouragement of young people to perform to high work standards. She also showed a strong commitment to Worktree’s charitable cause, to develop the employability skills of young people in her community, by volunteering the whole day.

I was first approached by Jules a couple of years ago when she asked if she could speak at one of my Woman Who events. I was cautious, I didn’t know her, was I willing to take the risk?
She’s a great sales woman so I booked her to speak.
Wow! She has amazing delivery style, great content and captivated the audience. I had no hesitation in booking her to speak again and recommending her to others. But that’s not all, Jules totally embraced my Woman Who women in business network and became a part of that community, inspiring so many others.
Jules is truly a lovely lady and so I had no hesitation in inviting her to share her story in my own publication ‘I Am A Woman Who’ published earlier this year. Jules definitely is a Woman Who Speaks.

Jules is an astonishing person and a great asset for any organisation combining as she does a passion and energy for sales and a supportive, coaching approach to managing her team. From the moment you meet Jules you know she is a force to be reckoned with, determined to over deliver and just the most fun to be around. She can deliver sales but this would be an underutilisation of her keen, strategic mindset which is best leveraged heading up a sales team or teams.
I have been a fan of Jules’ TEDx talk for a while now, and I recently got the chance to chat with her on her podcast. Both as podcast host and TEDx speaker, Jules energy is electric, her smile is contagious, and her insights are tremendous. She was able to take my long-winded stories and anecdotes and simplify them to two or three points, as well as anybody else whom with I’ve ever interacted. I look forward to watching where this wonderful saleswoman, speaker, coach, and host does next, and I for sure know I will be following along!

“Jules is just amazing! As soon as I met her, I felt like I’d known her forever. We connected on so many levels and I know we’ll keep in touch. In just one short intro call and one full session, I could feel the difference in myself. Jules made me realise so many things about me and has a knack of getting you to stand up and take accountability. She isn’t fluffy- she tells you it as it is, in the most endearing way- which let’s be honest, is what we all need!
When we spoke next I felt like, I had taken a much more positive path, and Jules has most definitely had a big impact on that. If you have the opportunity to work with Jules- go for it!”

I was gifted in meeting such a genius in sales, who shares my passion working on human connection and selling with integrity! In taking part is Jules’ recent programme, I was faced with changing an old outdated sales tecnique that no longer fitted with my own business. I had fallen out of love with sales, due to targets and ego driven Corporates I had sold ‘my soul to’.
In that week, I found new alignment and upped my game. This lead me to change my strategy! This was such a game changer for me. With my own business concept waiting for approval for Dragons Den, I will be turning to this slayer for guidance to its success!
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Julie at Yell and have had business dealings with her since then, and I am never less than impressed by her passion and commitment to providing the best customer service possible. Julie’s drive for continuous improvement and her desire to maintain her high standards of professionalism results in excellent results for herself, her company and her clients. She is able to bring a creative flair to whichever role she takes on and has the ability to inspire those around her to follow her lead. Julie is a shining example of what can be achieved in business with skill, hard work and dedication.
Since reading Jules’ book my life has changed direction. I subsequently did a road sales trip day with her where we developed my business idea and some telephone sessions. She has been an inspiration to me! Her positivity, compassion and understanding approach are a joy to work with. Although Sales is her thing she is generous with all of her vast knowledge and experience of business and life. I feel honoured to work with Jules.
