What do you need to do to accelerate your sales growth?

Can it be as simple as implementing a formal planning and professional selling approach?

During this session, John Mactear from Mercuri and James Shippen from Domino will discuss how doing just that has doubled sales growth.
As well as improving business results, the team at Domino developed a consistent and fruitful sales planning methodology, a common and progressive sales language, reinforced by meaningful, aligned and consistent use of the CRM system.

Key takeaways: 

  • How implementing a practical planning process can accelerate sales growth, and using a simple consultative sales approach, well-structured and simply deployed will drive effectiveness.
  • 10 tips on best practice approaches in improving sales results.
  • An appreciation of how the quantity, direction and quality of sales activity impacts sales results.
  • How to build a personal sales plan that turns activity into sales results.
