How to make sales by making your customer successful

What is the course about?

Sales professionals must articulate how their company can deliver business value to their customers. It sounds simple, but in practice there are formidable barriers to understanding the customer's needs and transforming often hazy and incomplete ideas into a plan that will give decision-makers the confidence to invest.

This workshop gives you a clear, structured approach that will ensure you discover what you need to know and then, like magic, explicitly align your interests with your customer. It then shows how to use a highly persuasive and entirely non-confrontational method to convince customers why they should trust your company to help them.

The workshop is highly interactive and provides extensive opportunities to practise the new skills in exercises and role-play.

Who should attend?

  • Sales professionals
  • Business Leaders
  • Consultants who want to sell more by earning trust and respect

What is the course outcome?

The workshop enables you to master PROUD OSCAR®, a proven, powerful consultative sales call model. It ensures you get to the root of what the customer really needs while simultaneously demonstrating your own expertise and adding value. It shows you four simple techniques to identify and articulate business value and then work cooperatively with the customer to define the best possible solution. PROUD OSCAR is used by thousands of sales professionals in major international technology companies throughout the world.
