, Huckletree Shoredich, 18 Finsbury Square, London, EC2A 1AH

Time: 9:00am - 12.30pm

One of the biggest challenges any B2B startup faces is creating and scaling a successful sales team that delivers consistent and predictable revenue. The key to delivering this is to develop a consistent sales process that ensures your entire sales team - whether your team has 1 or 20 members - has a common understanding of the best practices at every stage of the sales cycle and follows a structured process for taking your prospects through each step of your sales pipeline. This workshop will help you map out the framework for your own B2B Sales Playbook to define your own initial best practices and show you how to iterate this Playbook for even greater success as you learn more about your market, customers and your own unique sales approach.
