Nimmity Zappert

Before founding Authentic Selling, Nimmity worked for 25+ years in senior management in the software industry.

Working across a wide range of international regions and cultures, she soon learned that many of the things she had been taught about how business and sales ‘should be done’ didn’t work.

The sales techniques being taught at the time were tacky and pushy, and so often they did not fit in the places and cultures she was selling into.

Out of necessity and the need to hit business metrics and sales targets, Nimmity learned how to sell and run businesses – without the tacky stuff.

She taught herself how to sell with authenticity and looks forward to helping you do the same.

They got it grasped our requirements quickly and shaped a workshop for a time poor and diverse stakeholder group wrestling with a thorny problem. We found it particularly valuable that they draw upon their own deep and broad experience and can quickly cut to the heart of the issue.

Bambuddha creative is a dynamic and refreshing team of marketing guru's. Very quickly they identified what our target market would respond to in order to create conversions. They helped to identify and add the "heart" to our product and showed us how to use this in the marketing plan for our target market. They have boundless energy, work within your budget, are incredibly understanding & supportive and do not know the word 'obstacle' We only have one wish.... that Bambuddha would join our team permanently. Thank you.
