As an internationally known expert on sales and customer service, a best-selling author, and a dynamic and entertaining speaker, Hal Becker makes more than 140 presentations a year to organizations that include IBM, Disney, Blue Cross, AT&T, Nordstrom, New York Life, American Greetings, Continental Airlines, U.S. Post Office and hundreds of other companies and associations.
At the young age of only 22, Hal Becker became the #1 salesperson among a national sales force of 11,000 at Xerox Corporation. Six years later in 1983, it was that same passion and energy that helped him survive terminal cancer only months after launching Direct Opinions, one of the first customer service telemarketing firms which now conducts over 2,000,000 calls per year with offices throughout the U.S. and Canada.
In 1990 Hal Becker sold Direct Opinions to devote time for presenting lectures and seminars around the world and to promote his national bestseller Can I Have 5 Minutes of Your Time? which is in its 14th printing and is used by many corporations as their Sales Bible. He also authored another run-away bestseller Lip Service!, one of the nation's foremost books on customer service. His most recent book, Get What You Want, is a fun, upbeat, and fresh approach to negotiating. Hal refers to this topic as "selling's 1st cousin." He has been featured in publications including The Wall Street Journal, Success, Inc., Nations Business and hundreds of newspapers and radio/TV stations around the world.
Hal Becker has received the Toastmasters International Communication and Leadership Award. He is one of only eight people in the world to be given this honor.
Inc. Magazine voted Hal Becker as one of the nation's top speakers in the areas of sales and customer service.
Hal Becker also founded the nonprofit Cancer Hotline of Cleveland, a telephone service that provides support and information for cancer patients and their families. (He donates proceeds of his books to this cause.)
