Course Benefits

Salespeople always seem to be busy but how effective are they? They can spend a day cold calling prospects that are highly unlikely to do business with them or trek across the country to a meeting with somebody who has got neither the authority nor the inclination to buy. Salespeople can also be incredibly busy clearing up messes that have ultimately been created by their own poor planning and foresight. These activities cost time, resource and above all they reduce the opportunity to spend time on making sales. All of them are preventable.

During this course poor time management practices are examined specifically in the context of sales. Delegates learn the root causes of these behaviours and then specifically how to overcome them.

Attendees are then provided with a series of proven techniques that allow them to identify where they are wasting time and also how they can prioritise their time in a way that allows them to work in a more productive way. Ultimately this means more value and more sales for the company.

The trainer was very organised, inspiring and knew how to engage with the group. I will certainly apply the new techniques I have learnt today.”
