When it comes to reaching our full potential, more often than not, what holds us back is the lack of support. At HerBusiness, we believe in networking and connecting with like-minded individuals who can balance out your strengths and weaknesses. Take the example of our Premium Members Vivienne Kane and Frances Pratt. By working with Frances, Vivienne was able to gain the support and advice she needed to boost her business.
As the owner of Minuteman Press Prahran, Vivienne has full experience in the print marketing industry. She is also the brain behind ExcitePrint, a specialist print marketing service. However, like many business owners, she sometimes struggles to manage the sales side of her company.
This is where sales extraordinaire Frances Pratt can help. As the owner of consulting business Metisan and the founder of KISS to Sell, an online sales training program, she is well-equipped to help Vivienne.
By connecting with Frances, Vivienne was able to benefit from her expertise and implement her strategies into her own business.
She finds the experience of working with Frances incredibly helpful and describes her as “flexible, resourceful and fun to work with.”
Vivienne is also able to gain some much-needed clarity on their points of difference and also construct a clearer plan through which she can turn potential buyers into purchases.
Working with Frances is a positive experience for Vivienne, who says, “Fran is a very insightful, resourceful sales specialist who has practical advice which she communicates very clearly.”
Through HerBusiness, our Premium Members are able to consolidate with other professionals and channel others’ expert insights into their own work.
Vivienne Kane is the director of Minuteman Press Prahran, ExcitePrint and CalendarPrint. She started her professional life as a speech pathologist, so she’s had a passion for effective communication for more than 30 years. Combined with her technical experience, she’s ideally positioned to turn your print problem into a print marketing success story.
Frances Pratt is the founder of KISS To Sell. Over the last 23 years she has built a wealth of experience in running businesses and selling. So she deeply understands how businesses operate, and why women stop themselves from thriving. She has also completed a Graduate Certificate in Change Management and an MBA from the Melbourne Business School.
