This workshop aggregates the global best practices, lessons learned, tips, tricks and traps on how to successfully and profitably penetrate and manage powerful customers.
Conventional approach to selling requires a paradigm shift in a market that is rapidly changing, where costs continue to rise and buyers increase pressure for better service, greater added value and lower prices. No longer it’s sufficient to be just with “technical expertise”; not enough to have pure-play transactional sales skills; not smart enough to have developed a strong pipeline of sales opportunities.
It’s high time our sales executives need a paramount change! They have to become more strategic in their approach, more focused on helping their customers improve their own performance; better at building and sustaining strong, trust-based relationships with their buyers.
This workshop enables the sales, marketing and business development professionals to step up their effort to become much more customer centric and provide an excellent environment by addressing their problems by strategic and key account management experience.
