Harold "Bud" Boughton | Keynote Speaker, Author & Coach

Harold "Bud" Boughton has always been a coach and an educator at heart. Whether it is coaching out on the football field, teaching in a college classroom, or guiding a young sales professional trying to close a sales transaction, there is nothing he enjoys more than helping others achieve success. His ability to inspire, coach and motivate salespeople is extraordinary. Bud’s background and experience in intercollegiate athletics and the business world have given him keen insights into emotional IQ and human behavior. A former Academic All-American football player and college football coach, he clearly understands the importance of teamwork, open and honest communication and collaboration in order to create an environment for success. He also knows what it means to lead by example. In his career he has sold for Procter & Gamble, Xerox and IBM and in doing so, received some of the very best sales training ever developed in corporate America. As a sales professional, however, Bud never believed that anyone had ever really ‘figured it all out.’ That’s probably why Bud has been a life-long student of performance improvement strategies and techniques. He has always been passionate about looking for new and better ways for sales professionals to communicate their ideas and concepts more effectively. Combine this passion with his innate coaching abilities, and it’s no wonder he became a master at building sales teams from scratch and educating those sales professionals so that they achieved at the highest level. As a writer and thought leader (three books and numerous articles and blogs), his opinions and comments have appeared on the pages of FORTUNE magazine, INC. magazine, Sales and Marketing Management and numerous banking trade publications. As a professional speaker, he has been a featured presenter and keynote speaker at business forums and technology conferences as well as having done guest lectures on college campuses. Whenever and wherever he speaks, one thing becomes clear - he is real and he is genuinely passionate about the opportunities life has to offer for us all.
