Renee was very clear and to the point. Covered a broad range of methods. The course was very well set up and structured. I would definitely recommend this course, it opens the mind to different ways of processing information.
All examples were highly relevant and focused at our industry – Renee’s knowledge of the industry and company really helped. You may think you know everything required for your role – this course will identify areas you never knew.

The two days sales course was beneficial to me as the content was easy to follow, engaging, very in depth. Lordien was understanding and able to share her own experiences. She helped me develop my own sales techniques. I found the in depth content and group work valuable.
Ralph is brilliant, friendly, engaged realistic. Ralph was a pleasure to learn from. He understood that we are already sales professionals and didn’t preach or lecture to us.
Renee has excellent knowledge, is friendly and helpful. Greatly appreciated her flexibility and ability to tailor the course for the group.
Matthew presented well. He gave us simple yet effective tools to apply in our every-day work life. He focused on real life examples, which I could relate to very well.

Very relatable excellent program. Refreshing to get a scope of further techniques, approaches and advice. Grand outlook on how diverse selling can be and techniques to different customers, needs and outlooks.
I have attended a few weekend workshops on Negotiation, behaviour and influence/coaching, but David’s industry experience really helped me visualise new techniques easily.
The course exceeded my expectations and left me with a lot of confidence going forward. The delivery of the material was exceptional. Renee delivered practical and real world examples making it easier to apply the knowledge gained. Great course! Renee made a challenging and daunting task seem enjoyable and less complex. I am looking forward to applying the knowledge that I have learnt today.
After courses in the past, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it far exceeded my expectations. Renee was engaging and bright. The topics covered were concise and easy to digest. I especially enjoyed the information on networking and learning styles.
A fantastic informative program designed to understand the key aspects of the sales path. Full recommend to new and experienced sales staff. Lots of tips and new techniques for sales conversion.
Renee presented the course in an interesting vibrant way. The content was perfect for me and my new sales role.
Excellent. Very credible as Naomi has past experience as a lender/leader/coach. Great rapport building with the class. I loved the content and found the course to be very beneficial to our current roles.
Renee was ten times more engaging than I expected and has given me the techniques to be more confident as a saleperson.
Naomi was knowledgeable with real hands-on experience. She is engaging and makes sense. A great opportunity to reflect on current skills, share the best practice and plan to move forward. Heritage Bank – Deb Parker
