The training we propose to you here will attain the following for your top and senior sales managers who don't merely do selling, but manage sales executives and sales territories.

Business Skills and Management

It is an intensive training that can raise the proficiency levels of their business and management skills as are desirable for profitable sales management in Grand Oak Limited.

Creating More Customers

After the training, you will find that the senior managers and the sales executives they manage will be creating more customers, attending to more demands and managing the staff on the field more effectively.

Performing for Profit

To keep an eye on performance, we will train the managers to rekindle their interest and the interest of all the sales executives in their control to focus on performing for profit. For this purpose we will concentrate our training to make your senior sales managers:

  • Know how to agree meaningful standards of performance
  • Formulate a control system to measure their standards
  • Understand the techniques of sales forecasting
  • Keep their eyes on factors that influence profit
  • Motivate the sales executives they supervise to keep to targets
  • Know how to improve the use of the time they allocate to different brands and the key areas of their territories.

A Test of the Senior Sales Managers Competencies

We will start the course with a questionnaire which each class member will complete. The information will turn out to be of valuable interest on the managers’ competencies before the course fully commences, especially for the critical ones like:

  • Team leadership
  • Customer focus
  • Relationship management
  • Administrative management
  • Marketing management
  • Time management
  • Managing meetings
  • Oral and written communications.
  • The analysis will also guide the structure of our own training.
