Course Overview

This practical course will provide delegates with a strategic plan to proactively grow accounts and to develop a relationship as a trusted adviser. Delegates will ‘audit’ their accounts to identify opportunities and strengths of existing relationships.  

Through facilitated discussion delegates will be challenged to identify which account should be prioritised for future potential. To attend this course delegates will require one or more accounts to apply the techniques to. Alternatively a number of accounts that form part of a segmentation plan. 
Once accounts to prioritise have been identified delegates will then create a tactical plan to grow and protect the account(s)/segment. 
Delegates will discuss and present their plans in groups and will receive feedback and support from our expert facilitators.
