About Street Smart Sales Management

Here’s a little about who I work with, how I work, and how I can help you.

About You

You’re where the buck stops when it comes to sales. You’re the owner or president, vice president of sales or sales manager. Your exact title doesn’t really matter. What is important is it’s your job to generate the sales and profits your company needs through other people … usually a sales force.

And, you’re wondering why its so damn hard …

  • Your salespeople aren’t making their quotas.
  • They’re losing distribution.
  • Market share is flat or declining.
  • Margins aren’t what they need to be.
  • Your pipeline is bloated … filled with “opportunities” that aren’t going anywhere.

You’re tired of excuses. Sick of the BS. You’re done with the whining. You’re ready for results.

I’m Oliver Connolly and I’ve been in your shoes. I know what it’s like to work your butt off managing salespeople and not get anywhere. It goes way beyond frustration.

In over 20 years of sales force development, I have learned the key to consistent sales and profits is effective sales management. That’s why I founded Street Smart Sales Management … to help you avoid the pitfalls inherent in managing salespeople.

You’re not alone in your sales management challenges. You’re not alone in trying to build a sales force that sells. Look at the following statistics:

  • US companies spend over $20 Billion ($20,000,000,000) every year on sales training.
  • Within 90 days, 84% of what was initially learned is lost. Yes, that’s $17 billion down the drain.
  • Most of that loss is due to ineffective sales management.


Scary, but it doesn’t have to be like that. I will work with you to make sure your salespeople consistently overachieve. There are several ways we can do it. Anything from one-on-one mentoring and coaching to small group programs. Regardless, there are no canned cookie cutter programs, no ivory tower BS. Everything is customized to your situation. Also, you’ll never be pawned off to some associate. You’ll deal directly with me, and I’ll work with you until you get the results you need. Guaranteed.
