The Sales Executive Programme

Sales is at the heart of every organisation. In a changing landscape, the way businesses sell is having to evolve, and sales people are having to work faster, smarter and in new ways.

Those working in sales must understand the importance of (and be accountable for) changing the way the world sees ‘sales’. Breaking away from traditional methods, they must move towards consultative, value-adding sales methods that truly meet customers’ needs and embody the principles of ‘professional selling’.

As part of their commitment to your future, RS Components are offering you the chance to enrol on Discovery’s Sales Executive Programme.

The course was great, not death by Powerpoint like other training often is. If you enjoy learning and feeling that you’re growing and developing, this course will be for you. It builds confidence in what can be stressful situations and areas where you lack knowledge around commercial acumen.

Whilst most elements of the course forms part of my role and regular activity, this is often in an isolated way. By bringing all of the elements together, it makes it very clear how they all interact and that I need to embed the learnings collectively if I’m to achieve my goal of being “Best in Class”.
