Hi A,

Before selling you that pencil, I would ask your needs first and afterwards convince you that pencil could be the best solution for you to meet your needs.


Best,

André

I would have the interview first what does he see in this pencil and how can it be of use to him. He would be indirectly communicating his needs and his perspective on the pencil. I would then try to use what he said to make him buy the pencil.

This pencil is really a multifunctional tool! 

Of course you have the obvious function of drawing and writing which is essential as a consultant to communicate with your clients efficientely e.g. by drawing graphs and explaining situations to get a shared understanding. 

BUT! This pencil also can be used to hold your hair together, as a lineal or wight to secure documents. With the inner part you can also safe somebody's life if you need to perform a breathing cut. Furthermore you can bind together stuff with the spiral. 

As you see this pencil is really more than just a pencil! Every German owns their own one because they're just awesome.

This pencil is very special, it is of a high quality and you can write 50% more with it than with an ordinary pencil. Also the design is very lovely, it's colorful, handy and has an ergonomic design. You don't have to fill it up, just sharpen it from time to time, which is very ecological and economical, too.
