This course teaches you how to make sales calls - successfully. 

Unfortunately, we receive too many phone calls today which are very poorly carried out - which try and pressurise us into a sale, and which are often rude, abrupt and deceitful.

However, there is a good way to make calls - one which focuses on the caller rather than you, and which is 180 degrees different to the traditional call.

There are ten modules to go through, each one is short, no longer than eight minutes. A workbook is included for you to download, and to use in the exercises. 

Also included are questions to test your knowledge and to see how much you have learnt!

Good look, and enjoy!

Happy selling...

Teaching how to sell more effectively and with less stress

I currently run a sales training businesses helping people to become more confident in sales and win more business.

Prior to starting a sales training business, I was a sales person, manage and then director, for a variety of companies, in the software and aerospace industries. This career spanned some 25+ years, and during this time I achieved many successful sales across the globe and made a great number of friends. Using this first hand experience, coupled with several years of training in different training methods, I now help others to exceed their goals.
