Has been able to let me see things from my clients’ point of view. Makes me understand that sales is more than selling and that after sales service is just as important.
Radiyan Yahya, Prudential Assurance Co. S’pore Pte Ltd.
I had learnt about the techniques of approaching my customers. It has also given me self motivation to promote my products effectively and systematicaly. I like most is to always bring my sales kit along or to be prepared for presentation when meeting customers.
Lawrence Low, Sales & Marketing Manager, IV-X International Pte Ltd
I understand that times are different, in the past most people buy on price and sell on price. Hard selling was quite popular, however, after today, I realize that “probe selling” seems to be a better and easier way to sell.
Christopher Chng, Raydent Supplies (S) Pte Ltd
To reflect and also to take a step back to review on our plans and processes. I think sometimes we are all too overwhelmed to list sales numbers and might not be doing the right things. I rate this seminar 8 points out of 10
