Sales training

Training in the fundamental skills of sales involves:

  • Rapport building
  • Discovering needs
  • Providing recommendations
  • Overcoming objections
  • Closing.

In addition, the fundamental element of a successful sales process, 'preparation', forms a significant part of the sales training.

Good to catch up with a former colleague many years later.

Measuring the value of training

The value of training can be hard to measure, however the implementation of Sales Training as a process can provide measurable results. These results sit alongside the intangible benefits provided simply by having the Sales Team together to share experiences and ideas. 

Over time the “fundamentals” of a successful sales process have remained largely unchanged – it is the “techniques” that have evolved and continue to evolve. As alluded to in the feedback below from repeat clients, David has a proven ability to work with your Team at their level, in their environment to achieve results that matter to them.

You can teach an old dog new tricks

“Having engaged Toddy to undertake sales training previously it was refreshing to have him back in a  different business and see him go well!  Our team, whilst busy with solid streams of work, were all enlightened by the time out to think about why we do what we do and how we can pitch that, not only to new but also existing customers - just proves you can teach “old dogs new tricks”.”
- Keith Cooper, Managing Director, Miller Creative Group.

Our staff have grown massively

"We have engaged Toddy for several years now to handle all of our staff training. The training he gives is simple, interactive and he gets everyone’s buy in. Our staff have grown massively with his help. Everyone is looking forward to the next training session already."
- Ash Whitaker, The Cardrona Distillery and Museum"
