Selling has Changed. Have You?

    Understand successful selling

    Time: 9:30 - 16:30

    This course will provide delegates with a new perspective and insight on selling.

What Is the Course About?

Compare the old transactional sales model with a car which has a worn-out engine and is continually breaking down. Every few miles, you spend even more money on a quick fix, so you can drive it a little longer. Really, you know that throwing money at it is a waste of time. However, without the wherewithal to replace it, you are unsure of the alternative.

To be successful in today’s business climate demands a completely fresh approach.

The onset of technology has led to a proliferation of companies competing globally. The World Wide Web has empowered buyers who have become increasingly sophisticated. This has led to a world where reputation and customer engagement are more important than ever.

This course will provide delegates with a new perspective and insight on selling. It will give them a strategic understanding of how to make sales activity effective in a digital age. It will provide attendees with tools and techniques which they can utilise in their own businesses in order to achieve better sales results.
