ABOUT THE BUTTON GUY

The lessons of the button guy's unique life story have been sought out by universities, non-profit organizations, government entities, and businesses alike, both in the USA and Latin America. He has been honored by the chance to speak at two different TEDx stages: one in the USA, in English, the other in Mexico, in Spanish. His story has also made headlines throughout the American continent. For his audience, his message is not only informative and insightful, but also entertaining.

SUBJECT OF TALKS

Sales, or effective communication in the context of sales and persuasion.

PREMISE

How was it that the button guy was able to get close to 10,000 people in the streets, representing over a dozen countries, to finance his travels: first, in Latin America in exchange for a simple string and a button, and then in the USA, for nothing physical in return? How did he do so while achieving an 85% success rate? What lessons can you take from this weird, eccentric, and fresh case study and apply to your industry to create something new and of value?
