Managing Director of Source Marketing Direct, Hector Montalvo, delivered two powerful speeches last weekend, where he discussed leadership and the growing trends within the direct marketing industry.
On Saturday 10th September Hector Montalvo gave a rousing speech on ‘the basics of being a leader’ at the Hilton in Belfast. The travelling businessman spoke about the importance of teaching and guiding others in workplace environments. In an extract of the speech, Mr Montalvo said:
“The best leaders are the best students. Hence, in order to get your team of people around you to reach their full potential, we have to be constantly looking to reach our own.”
The one-day event hosted a variety of other workshops and Q&A sessions to steer budding entrepreneurs in the right direction for future success. The following day, Sunday 11th September, Mr. Montalvo travelled back to London where he hosted a business development seminar attended by 600+ delegates from the direct marketing industry. Here, Montalvo spoke about the growing trend of the industry among millennials, its current success and the future outlook where he expects it to soar.
Mr. Montalvo is a big fan of continued professional development and believes that businessmen and women should never stop learning and seeking answers to new questions. Understanding the market landscape of a business is essential and this means studying competitors, the condition of the market, where the market is going and the average lifetime value of a product or service. It is a continuous process and one that Montalvo believes his listeners understand the true value of.
With 15 years of experience in the outsourced sales and marketing industry, Mr. Montalvo is regularly chosen to speak at business events to offer guidance to other business professionals at the earlier stages of their vocation. Montalvo often cites his philosophy of ‘being extraordinary at the ordinary things’ and uses it to inspire and motivate his listeners who are often the next generation of sales and marketing entrepreneurs.
He is a regular speaker at industry events in all the major cities of the UK including London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham. His diverse portfolio of public and motivational speaking on business topics also includes other countries such as South Africa and the USA.
