Sales & Customer care
Finding customers and then keeping them – it’s the constant challenge in any business environment. That’s why our approach is centred on ways of managing customer development that are proven to bring about an increase in sales. Yet how many people fully understand its importance, have the skill, or the commitment to represent your business as you would wish?
Here are some of the ways we can help:
- Effective sales skills
- Telephone sales techniques
- Customer service skills
- Customer relationship management
- Creating a customer care culture
Leadership & Management
Leadership skills aren’t solely the preserve of those at the top level of an organisation. As more responsibility gets pushed down the line the people with the greatest opportunity to influence performance are ‘First Line’ Managers. And yet so many don’t have formal training, understanding or skills to equip them for success. Our experience is if you invest in these people the return will be more than worthwhile.
The role of ‘senior’ leaders demands a different skill set. This group is responsible for setting the strategic orientation of the business and then effecting its delivery through their first line management team.
We can help managers at all levels develop performance through an understanding of self, others and the use of appropriate leadership behaviours. Here are some of the management competencies we can help develop:
- Leadership and teamworking skills
- Managing high performing teams
- Managing remote / virtual teams
- Appraisal techniques
- Motivating team members
- Negotiation skills
Business and Finance
Need to know more about how your business is performing? Want to know the type of information your bank manager will be requesting? We offer a range of help for those who need a benchmark as to their level of knowledge to those who are complete novices:

Finding, employing & keeping great people
