Business Growth Academy

We offer in-person and online training for business owners and their employees to develop the necessary systems and skill sets to accelerate business growth.  Here are our current training schedule and offerings.

Sales Academy

Overview of the Program

  • 6 sessions
  • Appropriate for both entrepreneurs and working professionals
  • Understand what selling is
  • Avoid the common pitfalls
  • Systematic and measurable results

Most professionals feel discomfort when it comes to sales. They wonder if they are pushing too hard, or not pushing hard enough.  They avoid the things they know they should do, by filling their time with things that aren’t effective. The old model of business was to ‘force’ or convince a prospect to buy from you. The new model of sales is solution focussed and relies on collaboration and education.

In this training, we will remove the common myths people have about sales, explain what selling truly is, and provide the step-by-step approach of educating the right market, with the right offering, at the right time.
