Feedback from the attendees of
The Art Of Selling Seminar
in October 2017
"We have learned new things. The training was rich in Content and very well structured."
"The seminar was quite useful. We have shared what we've learned with our colleagues. We would like to know and will consider to send people to future events organized by SBR. The most useful for me was that the Art Of Selling Seminar gave me the opportunity to conduct a diagnostics of our sales process."
"I have attended the SBR Consulting seminar in Sofia. It was well organised and very useful to me."
"Thanks for conducting a very useful session today. I learnt a number of new techniques which I can deploy immediately as well as having opportunity to reflect and challenge what we are doing. Plenty on the to-do list!"
"As an Account Sales Manager working for Sun Microsystems, I adopt collaborative, consultative selling approaches when engaging with clients. It was worth the investment and a good refresher."
"A word to congratulate you on a well run and worthwhile seminar last Friday on 'selling consultancy services. I found it very relevant even though I have been selling IT solutions/ consultancy for more than 30 years."
"Many thanks for the excellent workshop and line-up of first class sales professionals."
"Spot on - selling consulting, not just selling."
" I enjoyed the event very much and found many things within the presentations that have given me food for thought. My attendance was a bit of an experiment for our company. I have been asked to provide a feedback report to my MD to judge if it is worthwhile sending more of our consultants to any future events you provide. I will certainly recommend that the event is of benefit for several members of our organisation."
"Friday was excellent, particularly for the variety of inputs and perspectives as well as of attendees."
"As a small independent 'one man band' the topics were relevant.
I like Q.U.I.S and the discussion on bringing a client to a decision was good."
"As a Sales Director, I assumed I could not learn anything more about selling.
However, I picked up some very useful advice and new ideas specifically aligned to selling services."
"Extremely worthwhile, re-energised us and prompted lots of activity."
"It was my first seminar focused on selling, and I feel like I learnt about a lot of useful ideas and concepts."
"The Art of Selling Consulting Services seminar has been very worthwhile for me."
