And improving sales results has an an amazing impact on the total productivity of your company. So even if your sales are stellar, there is still opportunity to improve and expand.

What others say about training with Ermine:

"Your Class was extremely thought provoking. It helped me re-evaluate the way I approach prospective clients. "

"In the 48 hours after the 2 hour Master Class, I put two things I've learnt into action. We've won a new client worth £50k a year and got past the gatekeeper with another major prospect - so my fellow director is going in for a meeting next week."

"We went to an industry exhibition on Monday. We managed our meetings completely differently - and now are in discussions to manage a product area for an organisation that we previously sub-contracted for."

"Before we came to the class, we would have just sent the tender off. Now, we secured a meeting and will be presenting in person - just because now, we know how to ask".

“It’s fantastic working with Ermine and the Sandler system is always both challenging and entertaining. We have learned that it is fine to park some issues, until there is realistically time to deal with it. I cannot emphasise strongly enough how important adopting the 30, 60, 90 day planning is. We should have adopted it immediately. We feel empowered and much more in control as a result of working with Ermine and Sandler.”

“We have reduced our costs of recruitment fundamentally. In the 15 month period to the end of 2015, we estimate that the Sandler recruitment process saved us £250,000 against the known cost of recruiting the same number of additional successful people. The savings came partly from not recruiting people who could not succeed, but as importantly the costs of not continuing with people who had the potential but not the will to succeed. The department has also maintained sales on three product lines whilst increasing sales by 60% on the targeted product. The bottom line value of those sales is £97,500. The overall return has been much higher than Ermine had targeted for measuring her performance based on ROI.

"As with any type of training that focuses on best practice, there is always a niggling thought that in doing it you have to get the spotlight out and scrutinise your current methods which often seems daunting. Whatever worries I had were quickly superseded by desirers of putting the Sandler techniques into action and pushing the business forward. Ermine did a great job at ensuring each of us left with actions and focus that applied directly to us as individuals.

I really liked the way the training changed in dynamic to ensure it applied directly to the people in the room. Everyone was able to take something measurable for their specific Businesses from the day. My learnings from the day were very trackable and in committing to my plan I’ve seen instant results in the way I work. Ermine as a trainer and facilitator will put you through your paces and ensure you get clear actions and direction from the day. If you’re ready to commit in progressing your Business performance then this is the right training for you."
