LORD JONES: “BRITAIN NEEDS GREAT SALES PEOPLE”

NATIONAL SALES CONFERENCE 2016: Lord Digby Jones makes an impassioned plea to UK business to “put its money where its mouth is” and invest in the development of salespeople

Building sales skills emerged as the key theme during a day of patriotism and passion at the National Sales Conference (NSC) 2016, the UK’s premier sales event, held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on 6 October, sponsored by Avention and supported by the IoD, ISM and the APS.

The halls of the Ricoh Arena were buzzing with hundreds of leading sales professionals, from every corner of British industry, eager to listen and learn.

Most impassioned of all was that doyen of British industry, Lord Digby Jones, with his plea to British industry to “skill up to succeed”, a theme that resonated throughout the day. Lord Jones’s rousing address began with a morale-boosting acknowledgement of the importance of selling to the UK economy, especially in a post-Brexit world. “It’s salespeople who are creating wealth,” he said. “It’s salespeople who will open up the new markets Britain now needs throughout the world.”

Lord Jones’s message was that, with a professional approach, business skills – and sales skills in particular – can be developed. “The belief that ‘anyone can sell’ is rubbish; it is an art, deserving of good training, thoughtful application and strategic targeting,” he said. “Those who make things look easy, work harder, prepare more and take nothing for granted.”
