Derek Elson

Industrial Sales Professional

I have been involved in sales for over forty years mainly in the Packaging industry but also in Chemicals and Food.

My positions have covered the full spectrum of sales related positions from internal 'phone based customer service through to managing a full sales team. During this time I have gathered a great deal of knowledge related to acheiving and maintaining strong sales figures.

I have aimed to combine the" Hunter" and "Farmer" aspects of selling to ensure sales are not only gained but maintained for the long haul. The journey has been a long one but, looking back, I can honestly say it has been both enjoyable and rewarding in every sense of the word.

If, by way of my association with Udemy, I can help others to be successful and happy in their careers then that would give me great satisfaction.
