Participants will learn how to build a sales team for the modern day. We will begin with the idea of not hiring "the best" salespeople, but organizing a collaborative team - to prospect, develop business, and wrap up with a mutually beneficial close. 
The goal of the workshop is to build a communications model of predictable revenue. Empower your sales team to use metrics to improve and increase messaging and conversion rates, while keeping your folks where they perform the best. Sales teams, including managers, will learn different techniques to setup a prospecting funnel, quickly qualify decision-makers, and find ways to connect your services to client needs. This workshop focuses on YOU - with templates that frame the workshop content around YOUR offerings.
Imagine having a scalable and predictable model for revenue. You'll walk away with a document that outlines your communication across each phase of your sales process. We'll present theory, you'll apply it to your services, and peer review will help to refine your messaging to predict revenue and grow your business.
