Sales Enablement: Improving Sales Performance Through Great Training  

Presented by:

Roger Grannis

Sales Communications Expert, Grannis Group

a virtual event with ATD Tulsa

Friday, July 17, 2020

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

Virtual Event (Zoom)

The greatest innovations and new products will fail if your sales force doesn’t understand them, embrace them, and sell them. 

In this session, you will learn the results of a comprehensive study conducted with the University of Northern Colorado that asked questions such as:

1. What are the most important things salespeople need to know to sell new products?

2. How should content be structured to maximize learning?

3. What training delivery methods yield the best results?

4. What are practical ways to make training “sales friendly?”

5. What are the best ways to engage salespeople and motivate them to learn? 

Specifically, the study identifies the most effective training design and delivery methods for product leaders, subject matter experts, and others responsible for training salespeople about new—and existing—offerings. Ultimately, by improving the product training process, salespeople will sell new offerings faster and more efficiently, and the risk of failed product launches will be greatly reduced.

Our Learning Objectives for the Session:

1. Incorporate the five most important things salespeople need to know into every product training program

2. Design training programs with interactivity to increase engagement, retention, and implementation         

3. Organize product knowledge utilizing a 12-step training template
