    The Maine NKBA, in conjunction with our Event Sponsor Bangor Wholesale Laminates, brings you Duane Becker, National NKBA speaker and Maine native,  Presenting and Selling Your Design: Build Value and Make Sales

    It has been determined through surveys that the majority of kitchen designers wish they made a larger income for the work they do. Much of this is due to the fact that many designers have a lack of sales skills and often do not take part in self-improvement to gain these skills. It is rare that kitchen and bath designers acquire skills in design as well as sales in fact most have no specific sales training at all. My training is specifically designed to merge selling techniques with design presentations to give designers tools they can use immediately to improve their sales, communicate better with clients, and sell more of their work.

    Duane Becker has been in the Kitchen and Bath industry for over 13 years, starting as a Cabinetmaker in Portland, Maine building custom cabinetry, window sashes, doors and millwork. Since then he has spent time as a kitchen designer in the Portland area and more recently, a factory representative for Elkay manufacturing wood products division, supporting one of their exclusive cabinet lines.
    With a total of 17 years in sales, he enjoys training Kitchen Designers on some key ideas to design but also, selling techniques to help them present their designs and motivate their clients to purchase.
