GENERAL INFORMATION
ABOUT SALES TRAINING

What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend
Making Sales People Truly Productive

Sales people are greedy. That the way it is, and how it should be. Without their hunger for more, a company will never achieve its commercial potential, so every effort needs to be made to feed that hunger, and a huge part of that lies in sales training.

It is said that sales people are born, not made, but at Activia, we beg to differ. Essential selling skills like asking the right questions, listening to answers, recognising buying signals and using closing techniques to suit the situation only come with learning, application and experience. For sure, natural characteristics like an inclination to engage with people, or win them over, will help you so far, but in a business environment you need much more.

Sales training must be effective, and focused on the individual sales person, the company and target market. We have a suite of modern selling courses that can be attended on a public schedule, or tailored to suit your needs.

Free tools from Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level with our unique, free Test Your Skills tool, which ensures you book on the correct course.   This is invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Sales course using our great, free Bespoke Course Creator to suit your own or your company project requirements, including just the subjects you want to learn.
