Programme: Sales - Process, Proposals and Presenting

Whether you're selling products, services, ideas, or even yourself, the combination of a proven, consistent, and effective sales process, reinforced by the ability to get into the mind and decision-making of your target audience is critical. Rather than learning separately the skills of selling, writing proposals, and presenting them, here is a programme that combines all 3 skills with the opportunity to workshop up your own ideas with scenarios relevent to you and a facilitator with 30 years' experience. All with practice and feedback in a safe place.

Flexible but likely best delivered as 2 x 1-day courses on process and business-writing, then a 2-day course on presenting. Having a month between courses is useful to absorb and practice the skills before moving on.

Client Comments:

"Terry is fantastic. Not only is he bringing his own skills, experience, and ideas to any engagement, but he is expert at helping your own team discover its hidden gems. I wouldn’t pigeonhole Terry into sales or any particular discipline. He has a wider perspective of business success that will benefit any team!" - Sean Mitchell, Publisher, TechDay

"Your seminar helped transform our company in terms of building and keeping an effective team. I am a chronic sceptic of business seminars and the slightly evangelical feel that many of them have.  Your presentation was focused on practical ideas from the real world, and all the better for it." - Kevin Townsend, CEO,
