GIMA

The GIMA Knowledge Exchange programme will kickstart 2020. It returns with the popular ‘Developing Selling Skills’ session.

 
The workshop will include fun, interactive content that will arm delegates with everything they need.
 
Led by Cedar Associates, ‘Developing Selling Skills’ will focus on core sales tools. It’s suitable for established sales people looking for a refresher and those new to sales.
 
Topics up for discussion include time management, latest sales trends and dealing with objections. It will also put into focus how to match the customer’s needs with the right product or service. Closing the sale, link and up-selling, and creating an action plan will complete the agenda.
 
This will not be the first time the association has run this popular workshop. Previous delegates praised the session with comments such as “great to get stuck in as a team”.
 
All Knowledge Exchange Workshops will take place at Horticulture House, OX11 0RN.
 
Further information about Knowledge Exchange workshops can be found at www.gima.org.uk. Open to both members and non-members, space limited.
 
Bookings can be made for individual workshops (GIMA Members: £195 + VAT / Non-members: £230 + VAT) or as a suite of two or more places (GIMA Members: £175 + VAT / Non-members: £210 + VAT).
