Selling Virtually - A Virtual Learning Programme

New course
Who Would Benefit

This programme has been developed in a response to demand for a positive training solution to help sales teams around the world who are currently struggling to sell to their customers due to business disruption.

Course Description

‘Sellers’ deploy a delicate balance of emotional and personal skills as they connect with ‘buyers’ and there is nothing like being physically present when you are trying to make that connection. For many salespeople being denied the chance to meet customers face-to-face is the worst thing they can imagine because they have learned to rely on all of the visual and emotional cues that can only be experienced if you are ‘present’. This programme will help you to adapt and be equally effective in the virtual selling environment and build the resilience you will need to succeed in spite of business disruption.
