Selling Skills and Action Learning – 14 September 2012

We’re pleased to be able to confirm the programme for our next meeting, on Friday 14th September, at the Old Bridge, Huntingdon (click here for location and directions).

Our topics for the morning are:

  • An hour-long Selling Skills Workshop, run by Bill Clarke, Head Coach at Sales Coaching. This workshop will address the sales challenges that many of us have, whether it’s about planning sales calls, getting past the “gatekeepers”, creating a great first impression, or closing a sale. The workshop will be focused on your needs, so please email us at by Monday 10th September with the topics or areas you’d like Bill to cover.
  • After a coffee break, we will have a session on Action Learning, facilitated by Simon Leckie.  Action learning enables people to draw on the experience of others and gain new ideas and perspectives to develop their own skills in a structured way. This one-hour workshop will cover the key principles and practice of action learning.
