Course Overview

As all sales managers know it costs a substantial amount of money and resources to keep sales representatives on the road calling on customers and finding new sales opportunities. This is why the ability to manage time well is a critical sales skill.

If you’d like to see your account managers or territory representatives invest more time each week calling on customers and less time driving (or in the office doing sales admin), then this one-day Time and Territory Management course could be the answer you’re looking for. If you want your people to shorten their sales cycles, target key accounts and make more time for prospecting, Time and Territory Management will show your account managers how to take control of their time, priorities and workday so they can increase their productivity, maximise their selling effectiveness and meet their sales goals. 

They’ll learn to prioritise their time and sales activities to increase revenue, identify time management roadblocks and learn where and how to eliminate any counterproductive behaviours and habits permanently.
