    Sales and Marketing Workshop - Sales Training for those who want to hone in their personal skills

    There are many aspects to creating and developing a sales team. They range from: do you even want an in-house team? To: how will you train and monitor said team, in house or not? What characteristics will make a good salesperson? The answer to the last one might surprise you.

    Once you have figured out who you want. Then you must know what you want them to say. The key to any sales process is just that, the sales process. How and who to prospect, how to qualify said prospects, the presentation, the close and of course the follow up. All are critical aspects to getting sales results.

    Finally, what opportunities does your sales team present? What type of information and customer feedback can be gleaned? What benefits can be achieved by having a salesperson on board from the outset of product design?

    Seating for this workshop is limited
