A leading sales training expert within IT and telecoms, Simon Busby along with Commelius, will look into the connection between the adoption of learning technologies innovations and improved sales performance.

The live online event will touch on the research from Miller Heiman, the sales performance company, and a report from CSO Insights* which shows a clear link between investment in training and improvement in sales performance. According to the study, 73% of sales reps meet their target in companies where sales training is a part of the overall business strategy.

“What we learn from this report, and from our observations when dealing with clients such as American Express, is that training plays a vital part in creating a competitive advantage in a fast paced and constantly evolving world of product selling ”, says Vicky Jones, Managing Director at Commelius.

Simon Busby adds, “Technology led learning has a significant role to play in enabling sales team to increase performance and stay ahead of the competition. It’s especially visible in those companies where products change quickly and there’s a very limited time to train sales people on them. We’ll look at it during the webinar and I think this is something that every sales manager and director might want to consider when planning their next sales strategy.”

The webinar will take place on Tuesday 13th May at 4pm (GMT, British Time). Online registration: How technology led training can create competitive advantage.
