Developing healthy relationships with clients and stakeholders are fundamental in running a successful sales strategy within an organisation. This program covers several aspects of client relationships from first contact through to maintaining and improving those relationships over the longer term.

Overview

Building relationships and effective account management form the basis for successful sales strategy in an organisation. This program focuses on ways to build successful stakeholder engagements, close sales, retain business and increase referrals through the effective servicing and management of one-on-one relationships with clients. The interpersonal aspects of developing mutually beneficial relationships are covered with reference to relationship management models designed to maximise Return on Relationship (ROR).
