15-16BTA Strategic Sales Workshop - Phoenix, Ariz.
From equipment to software, MPS, MNS and everything in between, today's dealership has more to offer clients than ever before. But how effective is the dealership in selling all of those things? Is there a perception that each opportunity has a different sales process — either by the solution type or by the rep? Today's sales professionals not only need an updated sales approach to be successful today and into the future, but also a repeatable sales process that provides a consistent framework for all that they sell. This workshop is a sales transformation course focused on understanding, utilizing and implementing this sales process. This workshop, taught by Mitch Morgan and Chris Ryne of Growth Achievement Partners, provides a time-tested strategic sales process that works by enhancing sales performance today and providing the tools to be successful in the future.
