I still have a way to go before I feel totally at ease with telesales, but I’m getting there. I have been working out my ratio’s and seeing the improvement since I first started. I’m starting to feel a lot more confident on the phone, I don’t always wait until the office is noisy or people have left, although sometimes I still do, but I feel like I’ve turned a corner and learnt so much. Thanks again. Annie Hawkins - E-RM

Sales Master Class Following my attendance on your SalesSense course last week, I would just quickly like to thank you for an enjoyable 3 days. Having been selling for 11 years now, you tend to get a little complacent about sales skills. I must admit when David informed me I was to attend the course I did have some mixed feelings. I must say however, you have sparked some new ideas that I will be trying, and on the whole I found the course very very interesting. I will be reading through the course booklet every now and again just to remind myself. Mike Walker - Esteem

Motivational Speaking and Leadership Just to let you know that we very much enjoyed our course last week, which was both constructive and educational for all four of us. Derek Douglas - IRMC

My guys will have an early opportunity in the US, to put into practice what they learned and I will give you feedback. Don Fletcher - Diamond Multimedia

Speaking on Your Feet I was sceptical about attending another presentation course as I do a lot of presentations and thought I was quite good. Whilst I might have been 'quite good', as a result of attending I am now far better! Richard Doyle - Esteem

Selling through Partners Many thanks for two stimulating sessions with the CNT team. Every one of the guys has commented how useful they found both sessions. Neil Ferguson - CNT

Enterprise Selling I'm happy to advise that we have got the nod on Trevor's $1 million Bank of Scotland deal, and three other opportunities have made progress this week against key milestones.  Neil Ferguson - CNT

Speaking on your Feet I thought your 'speaking on your feet' course was excellent last week. It might be hard to detect in my efforts but I found the course most valuable and full of useful info'. No doubt in time it will work it's way into much improved presentations. There was much food for thought and it served my purposes well. Hugh Firth

Selling through Partners Thanks for a great couple of days. I just used some of the material with a couple of my sales guys - they got as much out of it as I did. It's going to make a positive difference in the way we work with our resellers.  Steve Sivitter - Pathtrace

Speaking on your Feet I think everyone benefited greatly from the experience. Olli has been very successful presenting his work to a large TV company, and you should see the project live in June. Patrick is currently with a very large rail company in Denmark and I'm hearing good reports. So thank you again, I think your course has made a big difference to the performances of my team. Kevin Lindon-Emms - Nokia

Speaking on your Feet As practice plays such a large part in developing presentation skills, I was a little sceptical about the value I would get from Sales Sense's course. However, I found it trod a careful path through theoretical overviews, helpful tips and practical tasks in a solid framework which left me feeling very confident about presenting in the future. Every presentation given by a participant on the course was filmed. This gave each person instant visual feedback on their strengths and weaknesses and allowed them to see how they had improved over the day. The course also tackled some of the more psychological aspects of presenting by addressing some of the reasons why people fear speaking in public. Not only did this give the participants a useful insight into the factors that trigger a nervous reaction, it also armed them with simple techniques for overcoming their nervousness. I was very surprised by how much ground was covered by the course. The practical tasks were carefully planned so that after only five presentations, I felt as though I had covered a kaleidoscope of presenting challenges. I certainly got a lot out of the course and I am reassured by the artillery of techniques that I now have to fall back on in the future. Will Golby

Presentation and Demonstration Skills Thank you for your help with our reseller conferences in Sweden and the UK. As we had not tried skills training at our reseller events before, we were a little apprehensive about the outcome but decided to try anyway. In the event your presentation skills training was extremely well received and I write to pass on very positive feedback from participants. From our perspective the training was and outstanding success. Your customisation of the course to address the particular needs of our resellers staff was most effective. The effort you made to learn about the participants was apparent to them. Many comments reflected their appreciation of training that dealt with the presentation challenges of their roles. Value was also attributed to the wider ranging topics such as creativity. Many of the ideas and methods presented are being applied in other areas. Your post course material in the form of a colourful pocket handbook has also received much praise. It makes a change to have notes in such an easily accessible form. As you can tell, we are very pleased with the training results and I will happily tell others about our experience. Nigel Killshaw

Sales Foundation Although my first training course, I found it to be very helpful and put my job in a much better perspective. Charles Read

Enjoyed the course and benefited from the time to reflect on issues and ideas that one might not normally do during everyday business activities. N. Roddick 

Excellent course. It gives me the absolute confidence that if I practice and apply what I have learnt, I could be into some very big business. Alka Shah

A very good course, allows you to really think about what you are saying, achieving and your objectives completed successfully. I would recommend this course to new and experienced sales people. Paul Craig

Very clear, well prepared training. Techniques will be used extensively everyday. Paul Garrad

I found the course to be beneficial for new ideas and skills and also to refresh old skills. Simon Sypula

Very good course. Learnt a lot and looking forward to putting it into practice. Julie Denny

Just a quick note to say thank you again. I had an in-depth conversation with an existing customer a little earlier. Nothing major, just a business in general kind of chat. I enjoyed recognising things during the conversation that I wouldn't have consciously been aware of before the Sales Sense course. I felt like a businesswoman and not like a saleswoman. You can imagine how good I felt. And the conversation ended in 4 immediate purchase orders totalling 90K ! Dawn Powell

I found the course very informative and helpful and will hopefully be able to approach prospective customers in a more confident manner and therefore try and speak to the decision maker to make an appointment rather than just trying to obtain their names and send them marketing literature. Clive gave some very useful tips on how to get around the excuses people use to try and get you off the phone without using the aggressive sales pitch. Samantha Bowley

It was good to have feedback from other people on the course and sharing of different sales approaches which work for others. I was surprised at how smoothly the teleconference format ran and that the participants actually did interact. Things I will initiate include planning the call (having two approaches depending on who I will speak to) and being more persistent. Sasha Jenson

The course was interesting and although much of the material was not new to me, it was presented very well and you always get something from a course even if it is only a reminder of what you should be doing and have probably forgotten. It would be a very good starter for new sales staff in my opinion. Neil Chapman

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for last week's course. I found it really helpful. I've not had chance to put it all into action as yet, as I was in Paris for most of last week, and have been on holiday this week, but will keep you posted on my progress. Helen Tubb

I'm sure the skills that I learned on the Speaking on your feet training course last week will come in very useful in my career and I am very much looking forward to my next opportunity to use them. By the end of the course I was much more confident about standing up in front of an audience and this was my main issue with presenting once again thanks. Mark Foster 

Just a note to say thank you for a very concise and constructive course. It made a lot of sense. I never got the chance to ask you to elaborate more about the statement on the last slide ' Nothing impresses like persistence ...Interesting! Roger Fletcher

Just a short line to thank you. The course was excellent and I have already put some of what I learnt from you into action. The content, I felt, was totally appropriate to my working life and I am sure it will lead to higher and better quality sales in the future. Andrew Colwell

It was not what I was expecting and that is good because the course opened my eyes up to things I had not thought of before. In my opinion it’s high level sales and it’s excellent. Steven Pipikiakis

The course covered far more than I expected it to which is excellent. My only observation is that at times we could have stayed with a topic a bit longer but this would have added another day! Neil Skinner

This course met and exceeded my needs and expectations. I feel I have learnt a new skill set and cannot wait to put it into practice. Richard Leonard

Thoroughly enjoyed the three days. Gained a great deal of new ideas and realise now that sales can be extremely challenging, but also extremely rewarding and satisfying. The course went beyond what I had hoped to get from it – thank you. Michael Bouter

Inspirational! I did not know how much I didn’t know. You have a winning formula. Shaun Baily

A lot of information to take in, but maybe that’s inevitable with this type of course. The pace was good and the instructor sympathetic to the needs of the people in the group. The instructors style was very engaging. Victoria Whelan - Esteem

A brilliant course. I must confess that I did doubt that these three days would be the best use of my time, but I was proved wrong. Very useful for novice and experienced sales people alike. Mike Smee

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was insightful and challenging and I look forward to putting the learning into practice on my accounts. Robyn Davies

Relevant examples used throughout - didn't feel you got something wrong - even if you did. Could learn from mistakes made. Team exercises very useful - shared knowledge plus different view points v. important. Abi Newell - Wheel

Extremely valuable information that we should be implementing daily on our accounts so it becomes second nature. This course has given me practical skills to expand from my accounts. Debs Heaphy - Wheel

This course offers an invaluable opportunity to stand back and look at all the factors involved in account development and pitching. It is also effective in highlighting areas of knowledge that you lack that can make you more successful. Fiona McCann

Have been on other sales courses that have been largely a monologue. Have much benefited this time from the interactive style of the trainer. Look forward to putting key actions in place within the footwear and leather team. Many thanks. Colin Wade

Refreshed a lot of old knowledge but added some gems in terms of new thinking not experienced on any other courses. Deborah Keay - Wheel

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and useful programme. I will use what I have learnt today in future presentations and public speaking situations. Lots of practise, demonstrations and drawing on personal experience made it memorable and fun. Clare Cole

It took the fear out of public speaking! It was a very fun day of learning and made me realise that presenting is a structured and rehearsed process. Christine Davis

Excellent - small groups meant quality practice time without being over faced by a large audience. Excellent forum in which to practice skills. Gienn Dale - Nokia

Never a dull moment. The lessons learned are relevant to other aspects of life - great benefit. David Ogden - Esteem

This course has helped me understand my fears of presenting. I feel this will bring dividends in the future. Nick Egginton - PCS

It has really given me much to think about when performing presentations, but more importantly, it has given me more tools for my sales role in Esteem.
Neil Crispin

The small group and video feedback made the two days training very enjoyable. I have learned a lot, now it’s time to put it into practice. David Mallinson

Excellent course, have learned a great deal. I have also left with personal targets and development which will continue after the course. Rebecca Ford

This has been one of the most important courses I have attended because it has enabled me to conquer my worst fear and believe in my own ability. I only hope I can put this all into practise. Vicky Barry

I really wasn’t looking forward to it as I saw it originally as a waste of a day. Now though, I realise that it has enhanced my skill set far more than any other method course I have undertaken. Well done and thanks. Neil McGuiness

I really enjoyed the chance to hear other opinions. It made me think about what I am trying to achieve. The course leader was humorous and listened to everyone. Sara Flanagan

Very useful and informative. Good ideas and reasons put forward. Good emphasis on preparation, which I think is going to be a key aspect in future calling. Lynette Kemp

Everyone should go on this course. Extremely informative and useful. Fiona Murray - Memec

I did not think the course would be relevant to me however, the skills can be ported to many other situations and almost all of them will prove extremely useful. A well presented, well-structured and interesting course. Anna Trett - Memec

I have personally learned some useful tools to help in my approach to gain new business, especially in ‘calling high’. Debra Beckwith
