"I worked with Harun and Przemek on the PITCH! sessions for startups at Google for Entrepreneurs and I enjoyed our cooperation a lot. They were extremely devoted to this program, shared private time to make this happen. The content they've prepared based on the community feedback was very relevant and presented in a professional, but also funny and creative way. I had full confidence that they took care of every detail of each session. I'm looking forward to our further cooperation."

What people say about our services
"There are a ton of young professionals with awesome ideas out there nowadays, who deserve to be successful. The only problem is their hesitant attitude towards active sales - i.e. they're sitting in the office all day "aggressively" waiting for the phone to ring. Przem, Livia or Harun will teach you how to get results and be aggressive in sales, but you learn to do it in a way that your customers will always tell you a sincere "thank you" in the end - wether they buy or not."
"Trust, analysis of needs, a proposition concerning the possibility of solving a problem, confirmation, closure. Przemek's calm and velvety voice wins your trust. By the means of clever examples Harun complements the story about the techniques and behaviour of a good salesman. The workshop conducted by him is like sitting in a comfortable armchair with a mug of coffee and a great book. You imbibe every paragraph and do not control time. I recommend it!"
"Guys have great expierience and knowledge but the thing that makes their trainings great is ability to connect. To understand their audience and to adapt. Keeping it simple: they are just great trainers."
"I highly recommend workshops by Northstar Consulting. Przemo and Harun changed the way I operate."
"When I came for the first meeting (Pitch!) with Przemek and Harun I was a bit like "I will be another boring training". I was very, very wrong! It was an extraordinary experience where I learnt a lot of useful and helpful skills and tricks that I could use in my personal and business life. Very practical, useful and a lot of fun!"
"Harun and Przem had a well considered plan for the training. The course was full and technical tips and good practices taken from their experaince. They showed great skills in teaching - using different technics to make us remember and practice what we were learning. The course went beyond the classroom, as the trainers were eager to help us tacle our very specific challanges in terms of Sales and Communications that we face in our product. I took a lot of knowladge and practical skills.I highly recommend NorthStaronsulting."
"I would highly recommend Northstar Consulting, as the communication and workshops atmosphere was excellent. Guys do feel what is essential in today's sales. Great skills. Thank you."
"I was impressed by Harun's experience and the way he runs his trainings. Harun showed us many usefull and simple details which will be very usefull during public apperances."
"I had the possibility to attend the Pitch! program organized by Przemek and Harun. They put their heart into it and made those 10 evenings the most useful moments of my week. Thanks to their professionalism and entertaining lectures I must recommend their trainings to everybody! 10/10"
"PITCH Program was definitely the best workshop I've ever attended. Everything was professionally prepared by Harun and Przemek. Presentations were very well prepared and valuable. The atmosphere was excellent and coffee was great too. Guys, the only advise I can give you is: "Keep on organizing such great events!""
"I was taking part in PITCHProgram and this event was simply mind blowing! The guys made me think about selling process as if it is an art. And well, it is a kind of art. But what is a sure thing is that both Harun and Przemek are pure artists in terms of creativity and professionalism of the workshops they had left. I highly recommend them to anybody interested in developing your selling and communication skills."
"I fully recommend training and consulting by Harun and Prem. I have known both of them as high-calibre professionals who know what they are talking about in terms of sales, comunication skills, IT&Design and online marketing. If you see them in action, you will see the difference."
"One of the best, if not the best workshop I've ever attended. It was simply impossible to go through a meeting without learning at least one useful trick. Usually there were plenty of them. I feel that my sales skills increased tenfold."
"It was one of the most important trainings in which I participated. Przem and Harun are professional salespeople and trainers. 10 sessions in Pitch Program totally changed my way of looking at sales. I honestly recommend workshops with them, you won't regret it!"
"Amazing young team with great communication skills. Whatever they present, do it perfect - I saw them during Cebit 2013, their show really caught attention"
"Great lectures! The tips were extremely valuable and upgraded our pitch"
"It was very interesting trainning. I was impressed by Przemek's practical knowledge of sales techniques and way he runs trainning. It was simply impossible to go through a meeting without learning. I feel that my sales skills increased."
"I met Harun as Sales and pitch Advisor during the workshops at the Telekom Innovation Contest 2014, and well, I won. His training sessions made me able to understand strong points and weak points of my work, and I also found his way of interacting with the participants very receptive and engaging regarding our need for insights. Meeting him really boosted my awareness of the sales context."
"To put it briefly: pure awesomness! I had a time of my life organising PITCH! Program with Harun and Przemek. They're extremely pro and devoted to our project, so everything went super smoothly. They're also super experienced and charismatic, so both gave great talks and I've learnt a lot during the program.I would recommend them to everybody who wants to develop her/his or her/his organisation's skillset."
"I had lots of sales courses in my life but what I saw during your presentation was outstanding lecture with very practical and applicable advises. Implementing the techniques I learned during helped me a lot during the last months to have great results in my career. I warmly recommend to anyone to use every chance to hear this guys, they are THE BEST !."
"The NorthStar team is great! They have improved my communication, public speaking and sales skills significantly in the shortest period possible. And all of this in an interesting and funny way, without any stress. Two thumbs up!"
"A great experience and a superb workshop. I would highly recommend training and consulting with Harum and Prem. It is by far the best workshop i have attended."
"Simon is a great lecturer, I can only recommend him, in the short time which we had together he answered all of our questions and explained what is the best way to handle certain situations."
"Very useful workshop that provides useful information in relaxed and friendly atmosphere (attended on Telekom Innovation Contest in Krakow, 2014). Highly recommendable!"
"I attended Harun's and Przemek's Sales training on TIC contest and I was impressed. It was easy to follow, fun and informative. If given a chance, I would attend it again."
"Simon and Fred were amazing! Helped us to realize what sales are all about. They helped us realize our weak spots and work on improving our sales pitch. Great speech, relaxed atmosphere, best advice one could get. Our team was truly amazed, and we hope we meet you guys again. Was a pleasure! Definitely deserves our best recommendation. 10 stars! Thanks!"

Some things that you should know
There is nothing like a born communicator, presenter or a salesperson - those are learned skills that anyone can gain.Sales, on the other hand, is not only about the product, price or contracts, but more about effective communication, ability to present well and convey ideas as a CEO, manager or an employee. We are the best examples.
We took our experience from the american corporate culture, brought it to Europe, adapted it and built 6 different successfully running businesses on the European market. Now we share that practical experience with local and global corporations helping them to increase their sales, communication, management and marketing efficiency.

Find out what we can do for you
Sales is a learned skill - it's nothing you are born with! First you have to learn the process of sales, the technical skill and then it's the hard-wired habits of mediocrity and laziness that one has to root out and change in order to build a winning mindset that can accomplish great things. Most people simply have no idea how to do this. But this kind of skills and mindset is in high demand nowadays.
Communication in Management
Everyone wants to work in a harmonious work environment. Every leader, be it a CEO, director or a manager, wants to lead with respect rather than fear, whereas employees want to be heard and understood. The way to do that, is to create an effective internal communication system, starting with improving the interpersonal skills of individuals and the way that they interact.
Puting together a great sales team is very demanding and keeping them on the right track takes a lot of effort and energy from each sales manager. Efficient Sales Management is based on three pillars: Sales Skills – Sales Metrics – Sales Attitude. Each process has to be set up properly and be replicable to allow smooth adaption of new team members to the existing enviroment.
Presentations and Pitching
Coming up with a unique solution or inventing a great product does not make your company instantly successful. What's missing is the ability to deliver the ideas behind your product with the right energy and enthusiasm to your audience - clients, partners or investors. A great pitch is very exciting to watch and at the same time sells certain points that help your company become successful.
Critical Communication and Negotiation
All companies with customer service face challenging discussions with clients, upselling, solving issues or even calming down the unsatisfied clients. Just like the initial sales skills, dealing with existing customers must be effective to help them stay loyal to your brand. Creating clear strategy for crisis communication and negotiation can help you bring your company closer to your client.
