International recognition for Dale Carnegie

To celebrate Dale Carnegie’s centenary year, two advisors from the organisation’s Northern England team have been recognised on the international stage.

Dale Carnegie’s annual convention, which this year took place in Hawaii, saw Graham Perkins and Linda Parkes applauded for their contributions to the firm’s success.

Graham Perkins won a sales award for the fourth consecutive year. Of the 3,000 Dale Carnegie sales people worldwide, Graham is ranked in the top 30, fifth in Europe and the number one in the UK.

Graham puts his success down to “an unshakeable belief in the positive impact that Dale Carnegie has in organisations of all types across the North of England”.

Linda received a sales management award in her 30th year of working for Dale Carnegie. She is ranked 14th in the world, third in Europe and number one in the UK. She said: “I see myself as the glue that holds the whole team together, keeping everyone focused and motivated.”

Juliette Dennett, managing director of Dale Carnegie Northern England, said: “I’m delighted that two of my colleagues have been recognised in this way, particularly in such a key year for the organisation.” The 100th Anniversary Dale Carnegie Convention was held at Sheraton, Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii with more than 1,200 people from over 70 countries attending the event.
