Sales Skills Training

Course Overview

Fact: It’s no secret that selling has changed in recent years. This is an exciting and dynamic profession, yet it is one of the most underrated and misunderstood.

The back-slapping sleazy, joke-telling huckster has disappeared and in his place is a new generation of sales professionals—highly trained and groomed, with the characteristics of honesty, trustworthiness, and competence.

Broadly defined, today’s top salespeople are in the business of identifying needs and persuading potential customers to respond favourably to an idea that will result in mutual satisfaction for both the buyer and the seller. This workshop will help you develop those skills, enabling you to sell smarter.

This workshop includes dynamic trainee/trainer interactions and discussions, written and oral exercises, voice recordings, case studies, reflection, quizzes and a workbook for each participant to take back to the workplace.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for the sales team, or anyone conducting sales and wishing to increase the company’s business.
