A farmer by birth, scientist by training, and teacher by trade, for the last 10 years, Will has been helping small business owners strategically generate more revenue, acquire new clients, and expand their companies with his firm, SalesPartners Florida.
He does that by making sure they’re generating quality leads and opportunities, and that they have the right sales process in place to convert them into clients. Will’s clients have been able to save thousands of dollars on ineffective marketing costs, while increasing their conversions, revenue, and profitability.
A 7th Generation Floridian from the rural community where his family settled in 1853 (and appropriately named: Dukes), Will graduated Suma cum laude from the University of Florida, where he later finished his first Masters degree in Agricultural Education and Communication. He first came to Miami to start a high-tech career education program within the Miami-Dade County Public School System, which saw 2000% percent growth under his leadership, and went on to become a Regional Teacher of the year.
After leaving the school system and starting SalesPartners, Will built his business through networking in local business organizations. He has served as the small business committee chairman for the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, the Director of Training for BNI Miami-Dade, and the Chairman of Leadership Miami through the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, among other roles.
Will has trained on the topics of sales, leadership, communication, and networking on numerous local, state, and national levels, and holds a Global MBA degree from ADEN International Business School.
Will is also active in the community as a board member and past Chairman of Touching Miami with Love, a volunteer with the Jobs Partnership of Florida, and as an active member of his church. He now splits time between his offices in Coral Gables and Orlando, where he lives with his lovely wife, Shannon, and their two beautiful children, Eli and Lily.
Will fundamentally believes you can serve others and make the world a better place through solid, ethical business principles, and his role is to help you do just that.
