Modern Selling for Distributors and Importers

Distribution

01/07/2019

The focus of the session is exploring NEW thinking and MODERN approaches to selling. Not only has the wine & spirits industry changed significantly in the last 5-10 years but selling as a profession has changed. We'll explore these changes in depth and prepare you to be more effective in the modern environment.



You'll be asked not only to open your mind to new ways of thinking and new possibilities but to "unlearn" some of the things you've been taught. Along the way, we're going to bust a few "myths" and poke our finger in the eye of some deeply held beliefs that have become obsolete.



Selling today is no longer about pitching and persuading, and overcoming objections. It's not even about the features and benefits of your product. "Modern" selling is about bringing true business value to the buyer-seller relationship. The centerpiece of this new mindset is demonstrating solid business acumen through the use of data, technology, and all the best practices that go with it.
