Sussex entrepreneur and business mentor David Mellor is revealing his sales secrets later this year in a series of seminars at the Hickstead Hotel, Bolney.
David, who is an honorary senior visiting fellow at Cass Business School, said he was staging the “Adaptive Selling Workshops” to help people who are new to undertaking sales activities as part of their job.
“Sales isn’t rocket science but it can certainly seem so when you’re getting started,” David said. “There are a lot of myths that I try to dispel so people can get to grips with selling and start converting opportunities with prospective clients and existing customers into success stories. Being a good business person is really about becoming self-aware. By continually refining and honing your skills, you can achieve great results.”
The half-day workshop is the latest in a series of David’s successful sales seminars, which he has run for more than three years. Attendees will learn how to build better relationships with their clients and prospects, receive tips to improve their communication skills, and discover how to overcome any nerves they may have at the different stages of the sales process.
Having spent more than 25 years as a senior executive for two of the world’s biggest banks, David is an experienced entrepreneur who set up his own consultancy in 2001. He is a Freeman of the Guild of Entrepreneurs and the celebrated author of several highly-regarded business books. He has written a trilogy of books about starting and growing businesses, and co-authored a book based on interviews with more than 30 successful entrepreneurs from the private, public and voluntary sector.
David Mellor’s ‘Adaptive Selling Workshop’ takes place at 9.00 on Wednesday 27 September at the Hickstead Hotel, with further workshops scheduled for October and November in both Sussex and London. To find out more and book tickets, visit: www.davidmellormentoring.com/events
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
