Business Development Programme

So much of our daily life is about selling, whether it’s our company, our products or ourselves. Effective sales strategies and techniques not only deliver for your company’s bottom line, but also grow market presence and customer relationships.

Whatever your experience level, we can all improve.  

This interactive, two-day course will provide delegates with a sound understanding of the key principles of selling and account management. It will also provide delegates with the tools, techniques and confidence to improve their influence and profitability.

The course uses a wide range of learning techniques including case studies and role play exercises designed to reinforce key messages and lessons. It is shaped to suit both those new to sales and account management as well as those with more experience looking for a more formal skills toolkit.
