Garda warnings for parents ahead of teen disco in Letterkenny

first_imgLocal parents are being urged to talk to their children about safety, alcohol and drugs ahead of the upcoming teenage disco in Letterkenny.A pre-Christmas underage disco is taking place in Letterkenny on Friday 29th November from 9pm to midnight.Before the event, Gardaí have issued the following advice for parents: Please ensure that you are aware of your child’s travelling arrangements and of whom they will be attending the disco with. Ensure that your child has their phone charged and has credit on it.Please ensure that your child only has adequate money with them to gain entry to the disco, for the bus and a little extra. Having too much money with them will only leave them in a vulnerable position where temptation is concerned.Please check all bags that your child may take from home with them and ensure that there is no alcohol contained in them. Speak openly and honestly to your child about alcohol and drugs and the associated harm before allowing them to attend the Junior disco. Please ensure that there is an adult available at home who would be in a position to get into a car and come and collect the child should the need arise. Sometimes parents unfortunately do receive a call from Gardaí to collect their child who may have been taken to the Garda Station for one reason or another. In the event of your child being taken into our custody we immediately call a parent or guardian to collect them.  Garda warnings for parents ahead of teen disco in Letterkenny was last modified: November 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Your Problem Is Opportunity Acquisition

first_imgThe biggest challenge in sales today is opportunity acquisition. Period.Your dream clients are busier than ever. They are doing more with fewer resources than ever. They don’t have time to waste with salespeople that are not prepared to create value.Even though your dream client may be sitting on a pile of cash, they aren’t going to part with that cash unless it’s for something that helps them produce dramatically greater results or creates a strategic advantage.More and more, companies are only buying when they reach consensus. And because consensus is so hard to reach many no longer bother trying. Unless there’s a burning platform nobody’s going to push for change.But this isn’t to say that value can’t be created, and it isn’t to say that opportunities don’t exist. It more likely means that there are greater opportunities than ever before. The world economy is worth $80 trillion–there’s a few deals in there for you, I promise.So, what gives?Salespeople have been told to stop making phone calls. They’ve been told that picking up the phone no longer works, and they’ve taken the advice of charlatans who prey on their fears and weaknesses.Salespeople and sales organizations have been sold on the promise of inbound marketing. They’ve been told that lead generation was someone else’s responsibility long enough that they’ve come to believe it. Now they spent too much time talking about the quality of leads rather than working those leads from wherever they find them in the buying cycle.Sales people have been told that social media is the magic bullet. But some number of salespeople spend too much time on social media and not enough on the telephone, while an equal number of ignore social media altogether and don’t yet have a remotely compelling LinkedIn profile.Sales managers have been told not to manage activity, to manage outcomes. Good advice–as long as your problem isn’t low activity. And there are no outcomes without activity. It matters just as much that salespeople engage in the right activities as it does that they are effective when doing so.Salespeople spend more time farming than they do hunting. They spend more time owning transactions than they do owning outcomes–and sometimes they don’t own the right outcomes.These are the many causes of your opportunity acquisition problem.I once heard a story of a company that sold their business. The new owners changed everything. The brand suffered, and sales collapsed. The new owners sold it back to the original owner. When they asked him how he restored the business he said, “I made a list of every decision they made, and then I reversed them.” Free Infographic!
