    Topic - Push / Pull: How Normal People Can Relish Improving Their Sales Performance

    Synopsis:Businesses are either growing or dying; winning new business is critical and yet most of us hate selling. This seminar relooks at what it is to sellContent:This seminar is of interest to those who:* Are not sales people* Think sales is a necessary evil* Are thinking that they need to get better outcomes* Want to be seen differently by buyersAgenda:* What normal people think of sales people and why* Reframe perceptions; from personality to value based selling* Why people buy* A process to embed improvementAbout The Presenter:As an 'imperfect sales professional' Steve has spent his career selling for companies ranging from micro start ups to aggression fuelled US tech companies. Propositions have included products you can pat, shake hands with and, most often, that have no presence in the real world. There has never been a recognised brand, marketing budget, vibrant user base or RFP.

What members and guests say

"I have been a Business Network Member for many years, probably over 10 years now. It has a relaxed and yet structured environment in which to meet like minded business people who were keen to build long standing relationships rather than score a quick sale. I have obtained significant referrals from Network members, and have purchased services from members with great success."

Helen Brown
Slater Heelis LLP

"I joined The Business Network Manchester over a year ago and took the time to get to know the network Members there. After about 5 months we won our first contract, and since then we’ve generated a constant flow of referrals and met many new decision makers and business contacts. It’'s not just been the attendees that we’'ve worked with, they have suggested our services to their contacts, so it's networking in the real sense of the word."
