Selling & Business Development, presented by Western CT SCORE
December 7, 2022, 12-1:30 PM – Location TBA
People like to buy but they hate to be sold. A salesperson's job, therefore, is not to sell but to teach, coach, and assist a prospect to understand why and how your product or service will solve their problem or improve their lives. The goal is to help someone buy. Come learn some of the techniques.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the kick-off and the ensuing events.
