Opening Inspirational Story

Was delivered by Michael Mahoney - a story about a salesman in Jos A Bank who made what he thought was a very big sale to a man who needed a new wardrobe for a business meeting. After which, his manager asked if he heard the customer say "no". He hadn't. A reminder that what we consider excessive may not be what the client considers excessive. Push through to NO. Then you KNOW.

Gail Nickse encouraged us to include a "no" story in our 45 seconds. Interesing pitches ensued.
