Key Account Management

Key Account Management

A practical and engaging LIVE Webinar

Overview

It has never been more vital to ensure you are maximising on the potential of your key accounts by identifying the short, medium and long-term opportunities for each client.

As an account manager, you will need to plan and prepare who to contact, when to contact them and what you are looking to achieve from each engagement. You will also need to continuously build and develop these relationships to ensure that you remain at the forefront of your customer’s mind.

This 1-day workshop will help you develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to create an account plan which is going to provide a high level of ROI, build, develop and maintain strong relationships with your clients over time and move beyond the role of “supplier” to become their trusted business partner.

Sales Improvement Through COVID-19

 

quote
I am sat this morning doing final preparations to present to 200 senior leaders within the organisation tomorrow, and find myself referring to your training materials.

We are sharing best practice from the UK on why we have been able to embrace virtual meetings so quickly, as for many this new normal is still not working. A lot of our success is down to the training we have had from MTD.

Everyone has loved your trainer’s down to earth style, the pace of the training, and both the content and delivery. I would highly recommend (and will be doing) that any company that is serious about business, needs to seriously invest in your training.

I will be sharing some of your top tips for successful meetings, as they are so practical – yet so easily overlooked. My colleagues are from international operations, so this practical advice and recommendation will be reaching a long way.

I can also see a very nice sales improvement developing over the last 6 weeks.quote

So a huge thank you please pass on my comments to your senior leadership team. It is important they know just how impactful this has been.
