Salient Extras

“A road well begun is the battle half won.
The important thing is to make a beginning and get underway.”

- Soren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher

At Salient Sales & Training we want your business to flourish. As well as offering tailored training in Sales Development, Marketing Development and Business Development we can provide a series of standalone modules that cover a wide range of business topics through half or full day workshops. Salient Extras aim to fill in the gaps in your business knowledge, ensuring you have all the tools you need to make your business a success.

“I came back from your course and immediately started applying some of the techniques. One in particular had a great calming effect and I intend doing this at least twice a day, especially at times of overload. I have also started a new “to do” list which has instantly cleared my mind of all those things buzzing around it, which has had the same calming effect on me. Thank you!”
Sue Austin, Sue Austin Business Support

Customer Care – or ‘Grow Your Own Customers’

Case Study

A large printing company had been growing steadily over the past few years but the manager recognised the need to improve sales effort and apply more structure to the business.  Salient Sales & Training devised comprehensive sales, marketing and account management courses for the company and has now been contracted to provide ongoing mentoring to the senior sales executive as part of the Business Focus Service.  By studious application of the new structure, skills and focus, the business turnover has already increased by 28% and that’s only the beginning.
