The general voice of this training is commercial. The sales approach will help you reach your targets better through cross-selling and asking the right questions. With a role-playing exercise at the end of the day, the trainee practices the theory in a safe and informal environment. This training is vendor-neutral and brings you a general market story as an independent technology-based – but not deep technical-training.

This is a 1 day, classroom based training with both theory and exercises (role-playing) and practicalities. Lunch is included in the training.
