Course Aims

This hands-on one-day training course has been designed to give delegates a solid understanding of good selling practices and to enhance their ability to be effective. Introducing basic concepts, delegates are taken through simple but essential selling techniques, in a structured and proven way that will enable them to make instant changes to their working practices and achieve sustained improvements in their performance.

Who Should Attend

The course is intended for anyone involved in a process where sales opportunities exist. The concepts apply to both telephone and face-to-face environments, and while the course has been developed with salespeople in mind, it can also be applied to other people, such as Customer Service or Support staff, who often have the chance to turn situations into sales opportunities.
