Sales Training Courses in Newcastle

Being persuasive matters… A basic understanding of how people like to buy is a key attribute of all people in all businesses. Face it, we all sell something. A product, a service or even ideas to fellow members of our teams or our employees. The phrase “what’s in it for me” is like a red-thread[…]


Sales Training in Newcastle

Sales Training for EVERYONE?   Everyone in your business is a salesperson – however,  not everyone has the benefit of sales training! When bank employees were asked to sell additional products back in the 1990s, they were given targets but no training as to how to sell…this ultimately ended in the PPI scandal and cost[…]

Presentation Skills Newcastle

If you are naturally comfortable “on your feet”, then the thought of delivering a presentation, speech or training session may come as second nature. Internally, when working with our colleagues and friends, the “fear factor” is diminished to a certain extent for those who are not “naturals”. However, the opportunities for getting it right  when[…]

As a hugely experienced “manager of people & performance”, I can take the “burden” of performance management away from business owners and engage with your team[…]

Interruptions, distractions, lack of expectation-setting, demotivated staff and poor standards of performance management are some (but not all) obvious reasons why we all fail to deliver on this key performance indicator. The[…]

Why do managers ramp up the pressure during lean times? And what happens then?

We have all, to a greater or lesser extent, had some hard times over recent years? Whether employed or self-employed, in the UK we have had to strive to get more in less time, sell more to more customers, work harder to retain customers and, all the time, demonstrate our ability to hit notional or[…]
