“Order Taker To Gladiator … How Top Sales Pros Always Win & Win Big” – during good times even average sales people can “get by” running routes, calling on friendly customers and just taking orders. During tough times, like these, just taking orders won’t get it! To win in 2010 we need Gladiators!

When we ask leaders which is more important to outstanding sales performance … “what the sales rep does” or “who they are on the inside” the answer is almost unanimous, who they are!

This program can take a look at (it’s all up to you!) tools like PDA’s, IPads, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, texting, Premium E-mail services like ConstantContact, ACT, SalesForce, Gold Mine and many other tools needed to compete in this ultra competitive environment! Choose the tools you want highlighted and we will convince them it is in their best interest to use them today!
