The Sales Presentation - Perfecting your Pitching Skills

Overview

The importance of sales presentation training should never be underestimated. Being able to pitch correctly and conduct a proper sales presentation is crucial in business and ‘The Sales Presentation’ or ‘Pitch’ is widely accepted as the most important part of the sales process. It is critical that the sales pitch goes as smoothly as possible as it could be the only opportunity you have to convince someone to purchase your products or services, and considering the amount of effort businesses go through to get a sales executive in front of a potential client, it is surprising how few sales pitches are converted into actual sales.

This is a highly practical workshop that will guide you through all aspects of a Sales Presentation - from preparation and planning through to execution. It has been designed for anyone who currently conducts, or will soon be conducting, sales pitches and presentations, and will be suitable for anyone from junior sales executives through to company directors.

Throughout the day delegates will have the opportunity to work on their own pitches (past, current, future or fictional)

Delegates are encouraged to bring along a 3-5 minute presentation which they have used in the past or will use in the future.
