Sales Academy - 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.
A structured membership programme which focuses on continuous learning and accountability, 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. Each monthly session introduces a new topic through both presentation and interactive presentations.
Sales Academy is based on 4 pillars.
How will you benefit from Sales Academy.
B2B sales professionals will convert more, reignite their passion and drive for sales as a career, and ultimately reach their full potential. Over the course of Sales Academy, you will improve your sales skills covering all the fundamentals of high performance selling.

What our members say about us.
“Sales Academy has provided practical real-world insights and techniques resulting in huge improvements in our processes and sales volumes.”
– Brani Mead, UiRevolution
“Jason has come a long way since he first attended, and his confidence levels have increased 2-fold and that is turning into business for him.”
– Aaron Jones, Senior Commercial Partner, BNZ
“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 is the interaction with other participants.
Having a short sharp session once a month is great, it's digestible and engaging, I tend to put what I have learnt into practice instantly. Great concept!”
