We were able to catch up with Sales Coach, Duane Plapp between speaking engagements to ask him about his business and some of his favorite past-times. Duane has been a client of OfficeKey for seven years and recently celebrated his 70th birthday!
Besides being a sales coach to local small business owners and managers, he is a sought-after public speaker on the topics of referral marketing and business growth.
Duane officially retired about 10 years ago, but coaching is a passion he didn’t want to give up. His sliding scale fee structure allows him to provide services to those who are just starting out and need that extra push to excel. His deep knowledge of business also allows him to coach seasoned professionals who want to move to their next level.
