About us > Our team > Dinos Papakyprianou

His motto is: Everything begins with a sale.

Dinos started his sales career in the early eighties, in the office automation and computer products industry. He moved to management by the time he was 25 and began to travel extensively to the Middle East with a company that had operations in several countries. He has since worked in different industries with local and international companies in various posts as Sales Manager, General Manager and Managing Director.
Dinos has sold products to customers ranging from small shopkeepers in the souks of the Middle East to the highest corporate and government offices across continents, closing deals for goods or services worth from a few hundred euro to hundreds of thousands. He has travelled to and done business on four continents and looks forward to the day when he will do business on the 5th as well. Regardless of his position in a company, he has always considered the growing of the business to be his main responsibility and has used his core skill, selling, to do just that.

Dinos was educated in the USA and in Cyprus, and received formal sales training in Cuprus, the UK and the Netherlands. He is an accredited program presenter and has been working with PeopleAchieve since 1999, bringing his diverse sales background and experience to customers in Cyprus, the Middle East and Africa. He follows a hands-on approach and remains an active salesman, consistently spending 15-20% of his time out in the field.

He is focusing much of his recent efforts in helping salespeople develop their prospecting skills and activities by overcoming their fear to consistently prospect for new business. He is qualified to administer the internationally acclaimed SPQ*Gold® sales assessment test and the Fear-Free Psospecting Workshop® from BSRP, for which he is also an accredited instructor.
