Speaker Profiles

Larry Sharpe
Neo Sage Institute

Larry started his entrepreneurial endeavors with the establishment of his family's business in the trucking industry. Once the company was off the ground, he handed off the reins and began working with New York City's former Chief of Police, Bill Bratton, in corporate sales of Pre-Employment Screening and Background Investigations. Over the next few years, Larry fine-tuned his sales and customer service techniques by working in some of the most difficult sales environments - Craftmatic Organization (in-home presentations), Honda of America (new car sales), Powerhouse Maintenance (Asphalt & Concrete maintenance sales) and WOR Radio (radio advertising and promotions sales). Bringing together all that he had learned, Larry established his second business, Prime Distribution, Inc., a company that sold various manufacturers' products into individualized health food stores and franchised GNCs.
