Thank you for tuning into my podcast, “Snack Sized Sales,” where I focus on sharing three actionable tips on one topic that you use to transform sales. Today my guest is Jeff Edwards of Energy Control Systems who will share his story about evolving into a multi-product entity of various power quality products with an international sales organization that has a distribution network.
Jeff founded Energy Control Systems in 1987. The company initially launched with a single product line of surge/lightning protectors. They have since evolved into a multi-product entity of various power quality products with an international sales organization with a network of independent distributors of their own branded product in more than 40 countries.
Much of his time is spent traveling in Latin America, Africa, and Asia on speaking and training missions with his network.
