Selling & Account Management

Course Code - BC-300 - 3 Days

Selling & Account Development in competitive, structured-buying market sectors is now more complex than ever. More and more sales organisations (which include product leaders) are being forced to ‘chase’ their own markets. Account, Territory and Regional Managers now realise that the sales techniques previously employed need to be more focused and effective to address the real requirements of the buyer.


This programme is a highly focused approach to selling and centres on the current business development issues that confront sales personnel in relation to further developing and growing their existing accounts, territories and market.


The overall programme will emphasise the professional, people-to-people elements of selling - Advanced Communication Skills, Building (and maintaining) Relationships, Sales Planning and Pipeline Development, Projecting the Company ‘Brand’ and understanding the importance of being seen as ‘The Trusted Advisor’ and ‘order makers’ rather then ‘order takers’.

  • Account and Sales Managers who have a remit for sales performance;
  • Those about to move into selling ;
  • those who are currently selling but have had no formal sales training;
