Selling on

A one-day intensive training course that will help you address the challenges of winning more business with your current clients, with benefits to you and them.

Essential Course Information:

Why this course?

Most business comes from developing opportunities with existing clients. Consultants who are delivering projects are in the best place to identify these opportunities, but few have previous selling experience and may be reluctant or unable to convert opportunities to sales. This course will help you develop the skills and confidence to develop new business with your existing clients.

Is this course for you?

This course is for you if your work is mainly in delivery, but you want to be able to sell. It will be of value not only to consultants relatively new to selling, but also to experienced consultants wanting to enhance their selling skills.

What will it give you?

This is an intensive practical course; you will learn techniques that you can put into practice the day you get back to work. By the end of this course you should:

  • be better able to identify suitable sales opportunities with your current clients
  • understand what factors will influence the buying decision and how to find out what they are
  • know how to prepare for and engage in effective sales conversations
