Clients of our key account management training
Which roles are right for our key account management training?
This training is ideal for those sales people who focus on a small number of key accounts. We expect you to spend most of your time with just a few clients. Therefore the pre-course work is essential to getting the most from this training.
The training is ideal for those roles which have more of the 'farmer' than 'hunter' responsibility. That is, where you need to develop long term relationships to develop revenue.
