Participant Comments

It did what it said on the tin. I would recommend this course for sales people selling complex products and systems whether in a downturn or not. The ROI and selling process sections were especially useful. Base Plus

I really enjoyed how it was very pin-pointed to concrete examples, was easy to relate this to my own position. It was also interesting to meet different people and hear their experiences and thoughts around the topics we went through. Ceetron
