"It's been an amazing training session"

Our delegates have been on quite a journey with us over the last few years. Lots of coffee drunk, laughter, hard work and good dinner conversations; it’s the before, during and after that means the world to us and ensures each programme has a “community” atmosphere. Some of them have been kind enough to share their experiences of working with us.
"Breakout sessions and scenarios were a good way to practice what we were discussing. Look forward to putting it in to practice."
"...It's been a really engaging and thought-provoking session..."
"It is always a pleasure to spend the day with Salestrong. The content, delivery and vibrancy of their workshops leaves you feeling that anything you want is achievable."
"I attended my first Salestrong event and it was great, it consolidated what a knew and also taught me other routes and methods I was unaware of around social selling. The course was delivered really well by Steve and the content was spot on. I was encouraged to write a few 'I will' sentences of things that I will actively do/try when I got back to my desk and I am pleased to say I have already started them! Thank you Steve & all the team for the day."
"Excellent session. Very interactive with lots of short practical sessions."
"... main takeaway for me has really been that, as a driver, I really need to work on listening skills and empathy of different styles..."
"... Today was really practical, we've got lots of tools that we can take away and use with our managers at Stella..."
"Really great course - helped to break through some barriers I had around social selling. Looking forwards to putting my learning into practice!"
"Having attended the session on Managing Transformational Change, this session on Developing a Coaching Culture was a great follow up! Both have given me much food for thought in how I might bring about change to the organisation and how I might use different coaching methods to drive growth, improve result and improve employee engagement and wellbeing."
"Once again a fantastic job by Salestrong, delivering an interactive and motivational workshop positioned on Business Development. Learn how to gain buy-in at the senior level of business management, by having the correct knowledge, with the right message, at the right time. I would recommend you contact Salestrong first if you want to up the ante of your sales team and grow your business!"
"...really benefitted from spending the time here.  Really sort of taken away a sense of ownership..."
"Salestrong ran a 'Coaching Agents' course for our field sales team. This was a really valuable experience to learn new skills and practice old skills in a safe environment. Steve was an excellent trainer with some great ideas and feedback."
"It was evident from the course that Salestrong truly understood what we as a business wanted our sales teams to obtain from training. Not only has the course had an instant impact but has also helped shape further development for me."
"...it's been an amazing training session..."
"...Today has been so good because it's just been a complete refresher on social styles, which is really invaluable..."
"I found the Salestrong team were fun, informative and interactive. The course content was delivered in a way which applied specific models to my role and has helped me to think of ways to put new techniques learned into daily practice. This in turn will help me to manage my time more efficiently and effectively by helping me get the most from each meeting. In my new role it is vital to network and maximise on all new opportunities gained from new and existing business relationships. The course has helped me to be prepared and ready to implement new techniques learned into my role."
"A great course that really helped the way we approach our presentations to ensure we have maximum impact. Al and Steve really know their stuff and do a great job challenging course participants to break from old habits. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."  
"I feel that my sales skills have developed a huge amount since completing the Salestrong programme. My confidence has come on significantly and I now control the sales cycle rather than being led by the customer. The final practical session really cemented all of the theory and gave us the time to put all of the techniques into practice in a controlled environment. 5*!!!"
“Monthly Self Generated sales jumped up by unprecedented levels after the first round of Sales Academy courses – this stuff really works!” “Inspirational training which gives every seller the tools to increase their own sales, increase their own commission”  
"...Today I really got a sense of how positive coaching can be as an intervention in business, how much value it adds to the day to day work for every employee, from all levels..."
"The programme from Salestrong was tailored to the Sales team, this made sure it was instantly useful & realistic. We have adopted a lot of the Tools from the courses as the foundation for the Proposals we submit for our larger Prospects."
"...I've enjoyed (learning) what kind of seller I am and ... what I need to go forward to get that extra sale..."
"A brilliant course and process which was as close as you could get to a real life pitching environment. It certainly contributed massively to my success in 2015 and I expect it to do the same going forward."
"The sales training delivered to the Worldpay sales force has been excellent. This has resulted in a complete shift in focus, away from talking about themselves and Worldpay towards truly understanding the customer needs. The learning has been further embedded by the follow up coaching support and accreditation process, ensuring the training has been taken on board and implemented."
"...it was a good insight into seeing how the mind works, both on our side, which is the seller and also how the buyer's mind works as well..."
"I found the sales strong team very professional and knowledgeable of our industry. They helped me rebuild my structure and add key components that I continually left out, improving my signing numbers and decreasing my 'let me think about it' customers. All in all, a valuable experience!"
"...I found that session incredibly valuable and have taken a lot away this morning that I'll be starting to put into practice tomorrow..."
"Thanks for a great course. I really think we can all take a lot from how we work, how we can change, and if we can all stretch ourselves that "extra" bit, what a difference we can make in what we do in our sales and for the Company as well. Clearly a lot of work and effort has gone in to designing, implementing and, of course,delivering the programme. A big thanks to all involved."
"Following a deal review session, I managed to meet additional key stakeholders across the the customer business. They really liked the value proposition that we created in the session. I’ve now also found out that they have a serious issue that we can help with. I presented an abridged version of the value proposition and the competitive landscape to two key board members and I feel in a much better place than I did before, so thanks for your help and insight."
"It is obvious from conducting customer meetings prior and post training that the team is much more capable and have adopted the methodologies they were trained in. This is the fundamental difference with most other training that I have seen, this course introduced a real change in thought process rather than ‘back to the same old ways’ after a couple of days of training."
"It was obvious to all attending the Corporate Accelerate Sales & Account Development training program that Steve had spent time getting to understand the business and where his knowledge, techniques and coaching could add the most value. A comprehensive Sales and Relationship Management techniques program ran over several months and was backed by company specific Account Development Plans, Sales Opportunity Planners and a comprehensive Competency Based Coaching Program. As a result of the time Steve spent with my team and I we became skilled at holding more meaningful and insightful conversations with customers which ultimately resulted in a significant uplift in customer interaction, more contracts and more sales."
