As the provider of ISMM qualifications and bespoke in-company sales training, Professional Academy have been firm supporters of the National Sales Conference since it’s conception as an event specifically aimed at sales people who have a desire to develop and grow in their profession.
The National Sales Conference puts leading sales professionals in the same room as speakers and companies who are invested in the improvement of industry wide sales skills. The speakers are selected not only to impart knowledge in terms sales skills but to motivate.
The speakers this year are especially beneficial as they provide a rich diversity from World Cup winning rugby player Will Greenwood and General Minister of state for trade and investment Lord Digby Jones, to the business experience of the current Sales Director of Royal Mail Graham Davis, and Former MD of Metro Bank Chris Brindley each of which provide a very different take on the current sales environment.
The event also gives sales people and companies alike a chance to understand different perspectives on the current sales environment, developing not only important connection with those working in their industry but also collectively work together to understand collective challenges and in turn develop collective solutions.
The NSC gives attendees a fantastic platform to network and meet people who understand the importance of strong business relationships as well as sharing best practice & potentially picking up a client or two along the way.
As a training partner, it is essential for Professional Academy to understand these challenges so they can help companies to overcome these challenges either via qualifications, training programmes or just some advice from our perspective on their situation.
Every year that Professional Academy have attended the event and have gained invaluable contacts and feedback not only to improve as a training provider but as a company in general.
