Winning the Pitch - Converting More of Your Sales

In this thought provoking workshop/training conference, Steve Wood and Adam Wydeman will lead you in a frank discussion about why some salespeople are able to convert many more sales calls into actual profit for their business by following some very simple, yet proven steps to ensure that the odds are stacked in their favour rather than the other way around.

Most people will know the well used statistic that "90% of all sales come from 10% of the salespeople in a particular company".

Would you rather have yourself and your staff selling or trying to sell?
