An experiential training course where you'll learn about, and explore for yourself, how to run virtual sales meetings that truly engage your prospects and clients.
Learn how to truly stand out online, both through old-school best practice adapted for the virtual world, and the latest technical tools which will mark you out as a true professional in your field.
As most seller-customer meetings have now gone virtual, salespeople have a new challenge that they've never faced before: how to stand out online. Until 2020, it was only necessary to differentiate from competitors on a piece of work, but suddenly there are a huge numbers of additional competitors. Not direct competitors for a piece of work, but competitors for a prospect's attention. Why? Because professionals in all areas of business are now spending all day, every day, on Zoom, Teams, WebEx and various other platforms. Being sold to no longer feels like the event it used to, and it's too easy to zone out and catch up on a few emails instead of getting involved.
In this immersive training course, Neil Shorney, The Sales Accelerator, combines his two loves, sales and virtual training, to bring you the skills and tools you need to stand out from the crowd and provide the impact you need. Join Neil on this journey to explore what the challenges are when selling online, and then to use the most cutting-edge techniques to create sales meetings where the customer works with you to create their ideal solution.
