Tim Hillier

Whether we know it or not we are all sales people! Especially when running your own business.

Stats show that 44% of people give up after one follow-up, yet 80% of sales require five follow-ups. Persistence is key and understanding your customer base and their buying patterns.

He has extensive sales experience, at all levels, following a career progression from account manager, to senior sales consultant and sales manager for SBR consulting

What Tim will cover;

  • Critical Success factors – Why failure is acceptable. Drill down into understanding stats, how these relate to the sales process and linking to ratios. Recognise the importance of focusing on the process rather than the results.
  • Realisation of the importance of the buying cycle
  • How to harness self-talk to be a high performer
