Who Is This Programme For?

This programme is ideal for those looking to improve their sales skills. It is ideal for salespeople who are working in either the Business to Business (B2B) or Business to Consumer (B2C) markets.

Learners will be provided with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to excel in their sales career and to generate more business for their organisations.

Our programmes are completely flexible in terms of delivery with minimum numbers of 1!

We can run this as an internal in-house training programme for a cohort or we can use our eco-delivery method all through virtual training and online coaching enabling us to run the programme on a personalised, individual basis.

What Will You Learn?

How Will You Learn?

This is a 18-month programme and with our flexible delivery model, the choice is yours on how you’d like to learn.

If you have several managers within your organisation that have the same needs then we can run this programme as a cohort with a mixture of face to face, virtual and/or blended sessions – we’ll work with you to determine the right mix. Conversely, we can run this as an individual programme.

Our eco-delivery model is a mixture of regular one-to-one virtual training and online coaching sessions removing the need for learners to leave the office or their home.
