Sales Seminar
10/11/2017

08:30 am - 04:30 pm

Today's economic conditions are creating a more competitive and stressful marketplace. Many salespeople will find it more difficult to make appointments, get sales and stay positive, inevitably causing disengagement. Studies have shown engaged sales people produce more revenue than those who are disengaged. In order to differentiate yourself from the competitors you need to be unique, with exciting approaches to solving buyers' problems.

Most sales training focuses on product knowledge instead of improving performance in what salespeople actually say and do when they are in direct contact with customers and prospects.
