Speaker Bio

Merit Kahn, CEO of SELLect Sales Development, Emotional Intelligence Expert and Certified Speaking Professional. 

For 20+ years I have worked with salespeople, entrepreneurs, professionals and business leaders who are frustrated because…

  • Their ideal prospects were not receptive to their offers
  • They struggled to reach their aggressive sales goals
  • The pace of change meant always being in catch up mode
  • There was never time for creating innovative ideas
  • Profit margins were slowly shrinking
  • Employees were overworked, over tired and overwhelmed

Have you ever felt like you were pushing against the tide when what you really want is to be open to receiving more business success?

You are not alone.

Let’s face it, you already read all the best business books. You have moved past good and now you’re great. You are vulnerable. You moved cheese. You know your why. You’ve made friends and influenced people. So what’s next?

What makes these books useful is not specific to what’s written, but to the specific people who read them. The secret is in your ability to stay open-minded to the teachings. How you do that all starts with a system based on scientifically validated research called The Open For Business Framework.

In her various roles as a business owner, trainer, coach, consultant and keynote speaker, she has worked with CEOs, business owners, entrepreneurs, sales management teams and professionals across a wide variety of industries including financial services, manufacturing, engineering, professional services, technology and even pest control.

Merit Infuses more than two decades of human dynamics, sales and leadership experience into power-packed, humorous keynotes on sales, leadership and communication. A Certified Speaking Professional, Merit has earned the highest designation in the speaking industry, achieved by less than 12% of speakers worldwide… your insurance policy that you are getting a real pro. Your attendees invest their energy, time and money to go to the event. They deserve a high energy, content rich, engaging speaker who understands how to capture attention, inspire people into action and make ‘em laugh.

Her presentation style is a blend of content, connection & comedy. All of Merit's work is specifically designed for each unique client.

A true adventurer, Merit pulls business and life lessons from her experiences backpacking around the world on her own, bungee jumping, sky diving, ice climbing, scuba diving, paragliding and crashing. She's likely the only person on the planet who's broken a left foot in Israel and a right leg in Croatia, but somehow she's walked away from both with inspiring messages that enable people to create new possibilities in business and life.

Merit has a Communications degree from Michigan State University. Her son Jake is a math whiz, "Little Mr. Fix It" and a future Heisman trophy winner (or maybe just a really big football fan).

In her spare time Merit can be found at a day spa or a comedy club… in the audience or on stage!
