We don’t help you “market” and “sell” your products or services. In today’s economy, that approach is both shortsighted and outdated. Rather, we help you make connections that expose new audiences to your offerings. From there, a loyal following and brisk business naturally follows.
Understanding the goals of our clients, and the needs and desires of their target markets, is at the core of how we operate.
When you have extensive expertise, it’s tempting to speak when instead you should be listening. We resist the urge and focus on learning all we can about our clients and their audience.
A vague idea of how to proceed is not a plan. We define an actionable strategy for our clients and then execute it.
The business landscape is constantly shifting, so we don’t hesitate to iterate. We’re experts at tracking moving targets.
Capitalizing on skills honed and experience gained in industries ranging from finance to publishing to mar keting, Tasker International founder, Boyd Tasker now brings his extensive expertise to bear on the business challenges faced by organizations in a host of markets looking to establish themselves in North America or abroad or simply outdistance the competition.
From funding to exit strategies and everything in between, we provide expert guidance on all aspects of your business.
Partners can make or break a business. We connect you with the right people, in the right places, at the right time.
True mastery of the sales process is something exceedingly rare. At the risk of sounding arrogant, we have it. And we can help your team develop it.
The best products in the world have zero value if they never see the light of day. We help manufacturers bring products to market efficiently and effectively.
It’s a fast-paced, deadline-driven world. When time is tight (and even when it’s not), we ensure that everyone involved with a project stays on task and adheres to the timeline.
Boyd is a detailed oriented professional, who will do anything to satisfy his client
Boyd is a good guy to work with, mainly because he focuses on customer needs.. Also a good host. I hope we can work together in futures projects.
Boyd is a nuts and bolts organizer that sees the forest through the trees for difficult to solve business problems. He can organize and get the job done and can be a tremendous motivator of both outside sales and in house employees
I have worked with Boyd, in various capacities, for almost 15 years, and hope to keep working together in the future. We've always focused on a target and then worked together to find the best route to get there. We didn't try to follow his way or my way, we just looked for the best way.
Boyd is a visionary with superb interpersonal skills. I have had the pleasure of working with Boyd Tasker on a few projects over the past few years and I found him to be insightful and very well organized. I knew that if Boyd was on the team it was getting done on time and with precise execution. I was personally impressed on how well he dramatically improved the traffic flow of the Las Vegas Market Center. I also personally know over 100 people Boyd worked with and they all would agree with this recommendation. I hope to be able to work with Boyd in the future.
I've had the pleasure of working with Boyd the last 6 years at World Market Center. He is professional, trustworthy, and a gentleman. Boyd orchestrated a major showroom expansion for our company. He was totally involved from start to finish, made excellent recommendations, and kept the project on time. A true pro that I would highly recommend.
I recruited Boyd Tasker to join Hoyt Publishing Company in August 2002 as Associate Publisher. Boyd's previous boss at Ziff-Davis Publishing Company recommended that I consider hiring Boyd. I ultimately did hire Boyd and it proved to be a very good decision on my part. At the time we were in the early stages of the launch of Home Decor Buyer magazine. It was a very competitive market and I needed a rainmaker to increase our revenues and market share. Boyd has a good nose for finding revenue. Within just a couple weeks of starting he started landing major accounts for us. We worked together for three years, doubled our market share, revenues and brought the publication to profitability. I told Boyd when I hired him that he would succeed me, and in fact, he earned that opportunity. Since leaving the company, I've admired Boyd's leadership skills in continuing to build Home Decor Buyer and introduce a very imaginative on-line venture. I highly recommend Boyd for any senior sales and/or management position
Boyd is a passionate, dedicated, and driven individual who quickly earned the respect of the entire TNE sales team as well as every customer with whom he met. His ability to connect with his customers, quickly develop rapport, and craft tailored marketing solutions specifically mapped towards achieving their individual objectives makes Boyd a tremendous asset to any organization
Boyd is one of the best people I have ever had the privilege to call a colleague. He is hard-working, earnest, funny, always serious about his work but wonderfully irreverent at all times as well.
He is passionate and he works well with others. Boyd engenders loyalty among his direct reports and offers genuine loyalty to his employer. Our customers actually loved Boyd and he reciprocated their affection.
Home Decor Buyer, the publication that Boyd ran for us before we folded it, was, in hindsight, poorly positioned in an unusual market and probably doomed from the start. It should not reflect poorly on Boyd that the ship went down on his watch. The truth is that it would have died years earlier were it not for Boyd's efforts and leadership.Through dint of will and force of personality he kept HBD afloat well past its time.
On a personal level, I probably should have sold or killed that publication years earlier. But I enjoyed working with Boyd so much that I kept hoping that we would turn some magical corner and refused to consider any alternative other than pressing forward. I do not regret having done so.
Boyd is an excellent guy. You will be lucky if you get to work with him. We were.
I have known Boyd for a number of years and have witnessed first hand his professional salesmanship combined with his intimate knowledge of the Gift, Home, and Furniture industries. Add to that his extensive dealings with a number of international firms and you have a seasoned professional who exercises his craft more as a consultant than merely a leasing agent. Working with so many different companies has also given him vast knowledge and observations of how these companies operate. I highly recommend him as a person who can add value to any business discussion and provide actionable advice to help you grow your company.
