About Harry Spaight:

Harry Spaight is the Director of Sales at HGI Technologies, a speaker and a coach. He is also a podcast host in the Lead Sell Grow Podcast. Harry came from more than a decade of service doing mission work. The journey included many great experiences in the US as well as getting to chip away at the once formidable Berlin Wall in 1990 and see people’s reaction to freedom from communism in 1992 at St. Petersburg, Russia, to the adventure of living an amazing two years of service in the Dominican Republic.

Harry believed that his background of service and the people skills he had learned, the ability to develop trust, putting others first and being a genuine listener while being relatable, would transfer over well into sales. Early on in his career, he wondered if his thinking was correct. From what he saw, sales people appeared to be pushy and do pretty much whatever it takes to get the business. He realized quickly that it was not going to work for him which led him to writing his book Selling With Dignity

Harry’s life purpose is helping others to get more out of life by serving others. It not only works in sales, but also works well in human relationships too.
