With 20 plus years experience in sales & sales management, my approach to implementing your HubSpot CRM is focussed on the most critical outcomes: User Adoption & Continuing Use, Data Quality & Reporting & Alignment across your teams.

I prioritise understanding your business processes, teams, data flow & reporting needs, recommending a CRM configuration that enables your teams to do their work faster & more efficiently.

Give me a HubSpot CRM that has been poorly implemented & neglected & I’m equally happy applying a similar process to understand what has gone wrong, rebuild the CRM and relaunch it in a way that makes it a valuable business asset.

If I don’t know the answer, I’m lucky to be surrounded by incredibly knowledgeable colleagues that I can bring in to help.

The other side of my work stems from my passion for sales & sales people & often works hand in hand with implementing HubSpot. Training people lights a fire in me and designing training programmes that both drive adoption of the HubSpot CRM and help teams to learn new skills is right in my wheelhouse.

I’ve won awards for my training programs in areas like Video in Sales & Sales Enablement & I always strive to drive award winning results for my clients.

About my role

As an EP Consultant my days can be very different, one day I might be scoping the structure of a HubSport CRM with a client, the next I might be conducting a sales process workshop, the next I might be training a team or working out a strategy to maximise adoption of HubSpot across and organisation.

Reviews for my work

We employed BabelQuest to assist in the transformation of our existing HubSpot CRM. We gave them the brief, walked them through the vision and design of the new-build and told 'em what we needed from them. They got it immediately and couldn't have been more helpful, approachable or smarter. We'd have been hard-pressed to meet our deadline for delivery without their skills and experience.

Babel Quest have been working with VFE now for around one year and they have been great investment for us. Both the traffic to our website as well as the number of direct requests converting into business opportunities and sales has increased due to the excellent marketing content and social posts that babel quest have generated. If your are looking for a marketing company to help you grow your business then we would highly recommend them.

BabelQuest have been absolutely fantastic to work with! Our marketing strategy and the content we are now putting out has gone from 0 to 100!

Chris was an expert in all things HubSpot and a really helpful first guide to outbound sales. He navigated our confusing internal structure and different levels of team experience with patience and understanding. His support spanned from highly technical reporting setup, to strategic direction, all in all filling in perfectly where we needed help.

Eric and Chris are incredibly enthusiastic about what they do and their knowledge and experience really shines through. They seem to know just how to utilise the tools and skills they have to help make you be the best you can be.

Sam Jones

It was a pleasure to work with Babel Quest. As a smaller company the complexities of creating a CRM system were relatively new to us, however Chris Grant (Consultant) was able to help us align our goals and build the perfect foundations to grow upon. The explanations, demonstrations, communication and execution were exceptional. Highly Recommend.

We worked with Chris on a CRM project to help tidy up existing HubSpot data and implement processes that aligned with our new sales strategy. Chris was extremely switched on and able to assist and resolve the major queries we had going into the project.

Moro, M

Chris was excellent in providing 'Champion' training for a sub-set of our users. The session was informative, interesting and engaging. The use of knowledge checks after sections of material was brilliant, ensuring that people were fully understanding the learning that was taking place. Videos were also provided for people to follow up with after the session if needed. Feedback from the wider team was great, with the training driving the...

Lynch, K

Chris Grant and the Team at HubSpot have delivered a rapid shortcut to unlocking the full potential of HubSpot. We knew it was a great tool but navigating the enormous capabilities of HubSpot and making choices that work for us was sometimes slow progress.
