Accelerate Sales & Achieve Your Dreams


    Are you part of a technology company wanting to grow and scale?


    Is lack of sales capability and poor sales results holding you back?


    Hi, I'm Nick Burns, helping tech companies sell more technology, faster


    I inspire, teach and coach founders and owners to scale their technology businesses domestically and internationally


    Most founders have deep technical expertise, however fear of selling and/or poor sales technique stalls their progress. As a technology founder myself, I wasted a lot of time and energy in sales paralysis mode!


    I spent over 15 years of trial and error creating sustainable sales success, and achieved a successful trade sale exit to a fortune 10 company


    Let me save you time and pain by showing you how you can accelerate your sales.

  • Because Every Interaction is a Sale

    The Nick Burns Story

    From No Sales Experience to Multi-Million Dollar Exit


    - Im a Technology Company Founder who built a multi million dollar international business and successfully exited to a Fortune 10 company 10 years later
    - Ive had no formal sales training, and learned "on the job"

    - I sell with passion, and am remembered by people who meet me for the belief and enthusiasm I instill in people

    - Within 5 years we had customers around the world

    - Then our part of the world literally fell apart, with earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand significantly impacting the business

    - That didnt stop us moving forward and entering the US market. It was through this process that we were acquired by a Fortune 10 company

    - Since departing after acquisition, Im developing and growing international technology businesses
    - Im experienced in governance, executive management, complex sales and developing distribution channels, and develop scaleable international businesses that contribute to the social good while delivering phenomenal shareholder value
    - I invest in, coach and teach a range of technology companies
    - In the community, I have chaired The Clown Doctors Charitable Trust, mentor for Business Mentors New Zealand, and am a member and advisor to New Zealand Business Intelligence (nzbi.org).
