Sales Development Programme (3 Days)

This comprehensive and highly participative 3 day programme is suitable for sales people who are new to the role as well as those who have never benefited from any formal sales training, or those who are need of a motivational refresher.

The programme begins by providing the delegates with a better understanding of what is required in the modern sales process and the qualities and behaviours needed in order to succeed. The programme continues by examining objection handling, presentation skills and negotiation techniques.

Delegates will be given the opportunity to re-enforce the learning by participating in several practical exercises.  Prior to the programme delegates will complete a pre-course questionnaire where they will detail their objectives and these will be incorporated into the programme.

All groups are small so you gain maximum benefit from the programme – most programmes run with 4-6 delegates attending.

Timings are normally 9 am to 4.30 pm.

Our small group training courses allow for plenty of space for social distancing.

We also offer the option of Virtual training/coaching.

Booking confirmations: We will email you to confirm receipt of your booking within five working days. A confirmation invoice will be issued to either request payment by either BACS or confirmation of payment if you have made a card payment already through our World Pay Account.  This will be issued within five working days. Also detailed joining instructions are normally released by email at least seven working days prior to the date of the course.

We look forward to receiving your booking and welcoming you onto the course.

Excellent training for the team – it has given them the extra confidence

It was a challenge and I was out of my comfort zone however at the end of the training I felt alot more confident

The programme was fun and very informative

Excellent for me to see the team `in action’ and to watch them grow with skills over the duration of the programme. Also a great refresher for me personally.
