The Sales Improvement Workshop
Is here because today you are most likely talking to buyers and prospects who know more than you do!
And if they don’t know more than you do, then they THINK they do!
The modern buyer is a savvy, shop-a-round, risk averse, value driven buying professional when it comes to getting what they want
And that’s ok.
Because that’s what they need to be.
But not knowing these things.
Getting caught out by the behaviour and practices of the Modern Buyer can lead unprepared sales teams (and marketing teams) into a world of pain, frustration, disappointment and decline….
So, isn’t it time you upskilled to maximise your chances of sales success with the Modern Buyer?
Upskilled so you can deal with Modern Buyers who are often:
- Less interested in building a partnership with you, and
- More interested in getting your best price and then
- Inviting your competitors to the party
- Draining you of time, information, discount and the
- Ghosting you….
Time to Match Your Sales Process to the Modern Buyer’s Specific Buying Criteria
Buyer behaviour has changed
So changing how you sell to OVERCOME with those changes should be your highest priority if you want to maintain sales momentum.
You might find, in your field, you have some very specific sales challenges, maybe…
Now you’re one of many and overnight you’re having to compete globally – yep, it’s a geographically small but supplier rich sales world for a prospect who wants the best deal possible!
Sales Decisions Take Longer.
There are tonnes more people involved in saying ‘yes’ (is that really the prospect’s cleaner in on this call?)
Move Deals Get Stuck with Finance or Legal
Finance can be the new sales blocker, with the evil twin in Legal, who has never seen a contract they didn’t think needed another 1598 clauses and a w few more paragraphs of jargon!
Risk Averse Buyers
Price used to be the biggest challenge – now Modern Buyers want the lowest price and the lowest risk.
Your Competitors All Look Like You!
When your and your competitors all look the same, the Modern Buyer will just go for the cheapest, lowest risk, greatest value – as they perceive it, and not always as it really is.
Sales Cycle Duration is Doubling Every 6 Months
Means your sales forecasts are wobbly at best, and downright fragile…and everyone knows it. Credibility is through the floor and every sales forecast comes with a huge list of caveats,
It’s obvious, there is a new game in town and the buyers seem pretty good at it!
So, what can YOU do about it???
Well, quite a lot actually!
The Sales Improvement Workshop | Sales Training to Get You Thinking Like Your Buyers and Prospects
No plan ever survives the first punch…and it’s the same in sales sadly!
But, if you’ve got a decent idea of where and when the punch is going to land you’ve at least got a fighting chance of dodging it….so you live to
stalk your ghosting prospects again fight another day.
So before you get the idea that you’ve wandered into Fight Club (shush, don’t tell anyone) I should explain a little bit more about the UK’s only Sales Improvement Workshop that’s designed to give you half a chance of confidently taking on the Modern Buyer, surviving the engagement AND being able to earn some decent commission for your bloody nose!
Converting Prospects to Signed Orders | It’s not just about your product and your pricing anymore!
Here’s 11 signs that you should get this course booked straight away!
- Your sales pipeline is a MESS (I mean 20 cute puppies shredding a duvet messy!!) and your sales forecasting is a bit wobbly….so much so that you’ve taken to praying and crossing your fingers every time you’ve got to present an update to the board! Yikes!
- You’re starting to wonder if ‘yes’ and ‘no’ means different things to buyers than it used to…like ‘yes, I’ll get this signed off and back to you by Thursday’ actually means ‘ you and I will never speak of this again and I am changing my telephone number just to make absolutely sure’
- Your demos and your pitches are getting longer and loooooonger as you try to dredge up every single element that the buyer could find valuable
- You’re still using BANT (bless!) that’s so cute….how’s that working when the CFO joins the call? BOOM!
- Your Sales Coaching Sessions have actually morphed into mutual therapy sessions with your Coach where you both swap horror stories about the how cruel buyers are…they never call, never write…and after all you’ve been through together, all the laughs you shared when teams kept falling over….
- You’re talking to the commercial team more and more to try and get a special deal passed, because this buyers promised to recommend you to all their pals!
- You haven’t stopped looking for a buyer ROI as much as listened whilst the buyer tells you they can get 10 times what you’re offering for a quarter of the price somewhere else
- You’re thinking about getting 5 extra burner phones just to get around the fact you know the prospect has blocked your current number, and you have serious stalking needs still
- You haven’t seen anyone from marketing in weeks – last seen they were heading off on a country wide roadshow with bags of pens, stress balls and enough boiled sweets to sink an average sized ship
- You thought sales was supposed to be fun and lots of cash!
- Your competitors might not be making more money than you but at least their fax machine (I know!!!) pings an order through occasionally
Things are changing …
The buyer is not always working with you to build a solution, they’re working for themselves to build a reputation!
Sales Prevention Officers | Immobilised via The Sales Improvement Workshop
It used to be procurement teams that were great at throwing a spanner in the works…and totally screwing with your Hail Mary pass to get a deal in before the end of the week.
Then it turns our the Legal team are pretty hot at throwing a few spanners, wrenches, red pens themselves.
Just those words…’your contract’s stuck in Legal’ is enough to throw even the best sales person into a horror show. After all ‘Legal’ is a whole new world, with a whole new language, and a whole new relationship with time….and their duty of care is not to you the seller.
After all, what do they know about month end, quarter end, bonus claiming windows, sales cycle time, average order value, commission multipliers, team awards? Nothing! That’s what.
It’s Sales Prevention at its worst, especially where all you’re trying to do is heroically save the economy but making the money flow around a bit more freely….come on now, you deserve a break occasionally.
Truth is – buyers, now know more than ever, are low on loyalty and high on getting exactly what they want, and at a price they want.
The sales person’s just collateral damage!

What’s Covered in the Sales Improvement Workshop?
It’s a full two-day session, delivered onsite or virtually in blocks over 4 weeks
I’ve split the course down into a few key sections.
This will help you understand all the great stuff I’ll be sharing.
The Sales Improvement Workshop sections are:
1. How to build a sales pipeline full of HOT sales prospects who want to buy from you. In 2023 the quality of your sales pipeline and sales process matters more than you imagine….especially if you’re going to be in sales for a while…
2. How to create your own competitive sales pitch, because you won’t get the extraordinary sales results you want if you just sound like everyone else! When you sound just like everyone else the only yardstick the prospect will use is price – that’s not a great place to be.
3. How to make your sales pitch so compelling that the prospect will think ‘wow, this is a no-brainer’. HOw to make a buyer demand ‘where do I sign?’ . Today, selling is so much more than just passing on information and hoping for the best. Join us and discover how to influence, how to persuade, how to build a business case for the buyer, help them find budget, help them give you a big, loud YES!
4. How to maximise your prices using three simple techniques. Do this so your buyer understands the huge and overwhelming value of buying from you. How you think about price dictates your pitch, your confidence, your value. Bring price, risk and value into the conversation to really demonstrate how your buyer wins from buying from you.
5. How to maximise your profits and not leave cash on the table. Discover how to generate referrals, cross selling and up selling just becomes habit. Doing this means your pipeline will always be strong. It’s the very best way to really increase your average order value.
6. How to improve the flow and speed of prospects through your sales funnel. Do this by avoiding those costly mistakes that means your sales funnel becomes the ATM of your dreams!
7. How to prevent prospects ghosting you and disappearing off the face of the earth once you’ve sent your quote

When to take control of the sale and drive the behaviours you want in the prospect and…
