In a Survey of Senior Executives – over 6,000 Executives believed that understanding the Customer viewpoint was ‘very likely’ to lead to Customer Service ROI, viewing it as a key driver of increased efficiency.

“Local Organisations must design an experience that creates customer advocacy and establishes a total culture of service quality, from the top down, in order to deliver for customers. Focusing on, and measuring, the softer elements of Customer Service is key to achieving Customer Service ROI”

Selling Skills & Key Account Management

“When Sales Intelligence meets Emotional Intelligence”

“People will buy from people they like.” Peter Drucker

Apple - Selling SkillsThey say that “sales” is the oldest profession in the world since it was Eve who “sold” the apple to Adam – and ever since, life has revolved around the commercial transaction of exchanging goods or services for money.

Over the years the sales process has evolved and various styles of selling have come and gone like a fashion. Most peoples’ concept is that to be a salesperson you have to be cunning, devious, extravert, have the “gift of the gab” and maybe… even slightly less than honest . Sadly, there are still companies who actively recruit sales people with the above characteristics, whereas, the most successful and proven way of sales professionalism is a long way from the traditional “Hard Sell” approach.

This one day workshop was designed and created by a Fellow of the Institute of Sales and Marketing and it not only looks at the traditional selling techniques of:

the traditional selling skills techniques of building rapport, closing techniques, consultative selling, handling objections, key account development, ‘making marketing work’ and Customer Service Excellence , it also includes the psychological aspects of developing emotional intelligence to our Relationships and People Skills.

As Peter Drucker once said “people will buy from people they like” and the addition of E.I. skills development enables sales people to; build rapport, strong business relationships and strategic customer relationships (rather than transactional relationships) which lead to stronger customer and brand loyalty with your Clients.

Del BoyDispelling the myth of the HARD Sell –

The Consultative Selling Approach to Sales. Applying Emotional Intelligence and psychology to our Key Account Development to increase Customer and Brand Loyalty.

Selling at an executive level doesn’t stop when the contract is signed. To develop the business and prevent attack from the competition, Major Accounts need nurturing. This Workshop illustrates how knowledge of various corporate cultures will give you a customer compatible approach that safeguards and maximises your account revenue. The session explores Value Propositions,Presentation Skills. Strategic partnerships, Key Account Development, Multi-level Selling and Customer loyalty.
