How Professional Collectors Recover More, with Tim Paulsen

Episode 16

Credit and debt collection is as much social engineering and art as it is about business and finance. The crux of debt collection is asking for the money, but it’s not like a sales job. Tim Paulsen is an Accounts Receivable expert focused on training collectors. He’s an author of several books including the Amazon 5-star rating for “Paid in Full” and “Tipping the Scales,” about maximizing collection returns. Tim is also the chair and managing director of the International Centre for Professional Collections, or ICPC. The conversation with Tim Paulsen covers a lot of ground, but we stick to his central focus: trained collectors make a bigger difference to your business’s bottom line than untrained collectors.
