Selling into a technical market can be very different from selling into any other market. This comprehensive programme covers the theoretical and practical skills required by sales professionals working in a technical environment.
Communication in technical fields can become a major issue due to the complexed processes, approvals, jargon and differences in culture and can often become barriers in the sales process, making it more difficult than it should be.
