A new approach to sales training.

Sales training that actually works.      
No more information overload. Bite-sized useable tools reinforced on a monthly basis with like minded sales professionals.
Expert modern practitioners. Improve skills | gain focus | improve conversion rates.

The Concept.

The purpose of Sales Academy is to help B2B salespeople improve focus, skills and conversion rates, without the overload of training information in one sitting that is proven to be forgotten. Sales Academy is a new approach to sales training. You’ll use what you learn straight away, and make regular adjustments so that it embeds in your sales behaviour.

100% of members said the program material directly contributes to increasing their sales.

The Sales Academy starts with a Foundation Day, which gives you a flavour for what best practice sales looks like and is an important first step in integrating with the rest of the community. After the foundation day members join a monthly training workshop allowing you to become just that little bit better every month.

Sales Academy is based on 4 pillars.

I love this format. I have done sales courses over 2 full days which is intense and the information is an overload. The information is soon forgotten as does the interaction with other participants. Having it once a month for 2.5hr is great with the short burst and engaging every month, I tend to put what I have learnt into practice instantly. Great concept!
