Content of Program

This program is designed to provoke insight and skill development amongst any sales executive/leader/team about why it’s important, and how, to sell in a way that customers of professional services both value and prefer.


The content of the program comes from the most recent and comprehensive global research into B2B sales, recently released as a book The Challenger Sale: How to Take Control of the Customer Conversation by Matthew Dixon and Brent Adamson (Portfolio Penguin, 2013)


Specifically the program covers:


I premiered this material (as a keynote presentation) at the RCSA March 2013 breakfast series and received consistently excellent  feedback with the presentation being rated an average 4.6 out of 5.0 by the 175 participants.


A selection of comments provided in the official feedback survey were as follows:


'Ross' presentation was excellent - enjoyable, incredibly relevant and offered practical tools that we will implement in our own business'


'Outstanding speaker! Truly understands the role of a professional recruiter who knows how to lead the customer'


'Ross delivered some great information and insights, and did so in a very professional and enjoyable way'


'It was a really good presentation. Ross is a delightful presenter'


'Ross is a very professional and dynamic speaker'


When I ran this same program for Beilby Consulting, the (then) Beilby CEO, Barry Vienet wrote the following testimonial:


“Ross conducted two separate training workshops for our consultants on both sides of the country. He prepared well and had an excellent understanding of our business drivers and also of the participants. He presented the training material really well and then facilitated an excellent workshop.


He displayed both passion and deep knowledge of the recruitment business and was also able to tie it into, and make it relevant for, our HR Consulting people as well. The feedback from all participants has been glowing. We have also engaged Ross to conduct several follow up webinars, which we are all looking forward to.”
