Description

Everyone in a company has a role in sales and advocating for your company and solution. Whether you are a business owner, relatively new to sales or just want to learn how to do a better job getting your idea across in a board room – this session is for you.

So many women say they don’t want to be a sales person, they are not good at it or it’s too stressful. However research states that women often make better sales people, have higher revenue and more retained customers. Sales is a lucrative, rewarding and process driven business skill, and one that also promotes the development of leadership skills. Sales is a great avenue to the C-Suite.
