2021 Essential Sales Skills 2 Day Courses

You will achieve your maximum potential sales in the next 12 months. This seminar is led by a highly experienced and well known Sales Trainer, who has successfully delivered this seminar to many clients in London and elsewhere for over 10 years. He has a track record of success and will show you how to double your sales and has already helped many sale executives to achieve extraordinary results. He will teach you no nonsense practical techniques that have been proven to work time and time again. He will explain and demonstrate practical and straight forward sales strategies that you will be able to absorb and immediately implement within your own business, to achieve instant sales and marketing success. He will motivate and inspire you to become a Sales Superstar.
A sales strategy and approach, which may have worked many years ago, can often become a sacred cow, which must be protected and implemented at all costs. Given that change is a constant within the world of sales and marketing, being frozen into what must eventually become an outdated sales approach, suited to a world that may no longer exist, can never be a recipe for long term success. This is why Excellence in Sales is essential to become or remain an outstandingly successful company.
Sales Course Overview
Modern sales is no longer about traditional selling. Today it is much more about helping people to buy, by making them feel comfortable with you, your organisation and your products or services. This requires good people skills and strong analytical skills. You need to be able to understand and to empathise with their fears and objections. You would also need to be able to identify and understand their motivating factors (their hot buttons).
A thorough understanding of customer concerns and motivation will help you to soothe their fears and feed their aspirations. Good selling is really about inspiring and motivating other people to overcome their own objections and concerns whilst enabling them to focus on the benefits your products will bring to their organisation to enable them t perform at their peak.
Great sales performance creates a sense of purpose and optimism amongst your customers and clients. Team work is promoted and respected. Together you will promote the success of the organisation, and your own particular client contacts. Nobody wants to let anybody else down and everyone is focused on future success.
It is clear that good sales people are invaluable to any organisation. They increase sustainable profits as well as increasing customer satisfaction and retention. Everybody wins and the workplace generally becomes a much happier and more successful business environment.
To ensure that the delegates attending this training course will get the maximum possible benefit from their time and that the discussions will be at their most effective; the delegate numbers would normally be limited to a maximum of 12. However, for internal single company courses, if requested to do so, we would be prepared to accommodate up to 15-18 attendees.

Internal Staff Training and Development
This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.
Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.

The workshop will consider how to best apply the knowledge gained by the delegates upon their return to the workplace.
