Women In Sales Webinar

What a fantastic session from our outstanding panellists! Thank you for joining the Women In Sales conversation.

We’re excited to announce that two of our Sales Apprentices Lynn Siggins from Rockwell Automation and Chaninah Dzialoszynski from BSI will be joining Hannah Saddington from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Julie Nicholson from CCS Media along with Mercuri’s Barry Hilton for our Women In Sales webinar.

The gender balance

The webinar hosted by the Association of Professional Sales (APS) is on November 12th at 09:00 am for 35 minutes and will look at the issue of gender balance within the sales world. The panellists will also consider whether the shift in sales behaviours, enabled by 2020’s unprecedented events, further consolidated the positive impact being made by women in sales.

International data proves that women in sales have a significantly higher percentage success rate at achieving target than their male counterparts.* Is it that the use of technology and virtual communication tools in customer experience management is providing the ideal platform for women in sales? Is the flexibility and efficiency offered by these increasingly utilized channels playing to inherent strengths in both style and approach? * – Havard Business Review

The Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship – a catalyst for change?

With the help of the apprenticeship focused panellists, we will also look at how the Sales Executive Apprenticeship qualification might just be the catalyst to help make a step change within the sales profession.

Key takeaways:

  • Clarifying the competences needed to win and keep business in 2021.
  • Identify the distinct changes within the sales environment for which female salespeople are ideally positioned to win business, strengthen results and increase customer loyalty.
  • Hear from successful women in sales and what they are doing to stay successful and on target.

“Thirty-five years of experience with Rockwell Automation,  the first 4 yrs being  spent as an  Electrical/Electronic Apprentice followed by a series of pre -sales technical roles both as Commercial Engineer specialising in HMIs , industrial networks, PCs and everything automation including a 10 year stint within the UK OEM team as a Complete Automation specialist.
