Hi, I'm Ian.

The Same Side Selling Academy is based on concepts I've developed over working with and developing a deep understanding for the way clients buy. And that's not always aligned with the way salespeople sell.

I was a CEO for two decades, and used these techniques to grow my companies from zero to over $1 billion in value. My success, backed by years of researching how customers make decisions, established me as an authority on accelerating business growth.

Organizations I've worked with have achieved remarkable, measurable growth using my integrity-based approach.

I've channeled all of that into a system that helps salespeople in all kinds of industries hit their targets, and more importantly, sell in a way that aligns with integrity.
