  • Welcome Technical Pre Sales Professionals!

    We offer Coaching, Consulting, and Advising services to help you unlock your potential and live your values. 

    We Speak Your Language

    Presales is a unique field. We go by many names: Sales Engineers, Sales Consultants, Systems Engineers, Consulting Engineers, and more. We are the trusted technical advisors within the sales process. Indispensible to a sales team, we ask questions, tell stories, guide our customers, show our products, and rarely "sell." Our arena is a balance of science and art that both improve with guidance and practice.


    Before starting Miley Performance Group, co-founder H. Michael Miley spent decades working in the industry, first as a SE and Sr. SE for Apple, and then an SE, SE Manager, and Director of SEs at JAMF. Check out LinkedIn for a full rundown.


    This experience means Mike brings an empathetic ear that understands the joys and struggles that come from being in pre-sales and pre-sales leadership. 


    Miley Performance Group offers Coaching, Consulting, and Advising services for all our clients. For pre-sales professionals, Mike handles all services personally. So, how can we help you?


    Many clients utilize personal Coaching sessions to grow personally and exceed organizational goals. Mike is non-judgmental and industry-certified, so he will help you get past any hurdles and assist you as you create your best self.


    Some organizations look to our Consulting services to dig into a company or departmental challenge and help speed the solution process. We've helped design new team structures, align existing teams to changing sales demands, plan for expected growth, strengthen or adapt team culture, develop team metrics and expectations, and more.


    Some leaders tap Mike's experience through our Advising services. We act as an extension of your team and help you help drive performance by offering new ideas and lending outside experiences to help you overcome obstacles in your path.
