Speak to your prospect in a way that gets their attention – Building a Successful Sales Message
Opening Keynote defines what a customer driven sales message is and how to go about defining yours in words that speak to the needs of the customer. Principles of: “attention first, then retention”, “you vs we”, and “high fives” are embedded. Break-out discussions focus on your company's (and others’) sales message – and how to strongly entrench it across your business as a start.

Why are bullet points distracting from you landing your message and how can you build impactful presentations that help your message stand out from the pack.

Our Unique Approach To Driving Exponential Sales Growth Consists of 5 Elements
Interactive practical exercises
By working through practical examples and exercises, and then collectively sharing and discussing outcomes, you are better able to grasp concepts that you can apply to your own sales environment.
Coaching to Learn
The best way to create new behaviors is to identify and encourage (or praise) the behaviors we seek. This approach is followed in a positive way to make learning non-threatening and more rewarding – an approach that can be taken back and used in the office too.
It's much easier to adopt something when you understand the basis upon which the learning is formed. Sales Principles based on the psychology of sales are discussed and debated as a way to embed an understanding that can be applied in multiple forms in the workplace.
In-depth fireside chat with topic experts
It's much easier to attempt something when you can talk to someone who's done it before. These firesides significantly increase the chance that ideas are turned into action.
WhatsApp / Discord / Slack used for 24/7 idea sharing
We don't mind which chat channel your company prefers to use. We just want to encourage your teams to chat. We will set up a chat channel on your preferred platform, so the ideas can continue rolling 24/7.
Why does this approach work?
In a nutshell we are successful at driving sales growth, not because of what we share, but because of how we share it.
We don’t profess to have new sales secrets that cannot be accessed anywhere apart from us.
Sales is sales. It’s a science. It’s a process. It’s an Art. It’s all of these things.
But the best of the best sales teams are continually curious about how to improve.
We help you to create that desire to experiment and learn by focusing on short, interactive interventions over a 3-day period.
And when you have those eureka moments, we are able to help you turn those ideas into actions.

Hear what our clients are saying...
“The Value Based Sales approach of building a sales culture has assisted us in developing a Value Creation unit where decisions are now based on factual data, driven by processes that we have implemented. Our message is clearer than before and more client centric. We have developed an ethos of wanting to constantly strive for improvement and setting higher goals for ourselves. It’s become part of who we are!”
Managing Executive: Value Creation
Gordon Institute of Business Science, University of Pretoria
“Creating a disciplined sales culture within a business, that sustains itself as you grow, is not easy. The Value Based Sales approach allows you to always have a single version of the truth, avoiding gaps in communication between management and sales teams.”
Business Consultant and Former CEO: KeenCorp
“Having a disciplined sales culture is often the difference between success and mediocrity. Articulating your value as a benefit to the customer in terms that “speak” to them, is critical in a world where competitors too often speak the same language. Building rigorous sales processes is also too often ignored by organisations to their peril and creates unfortunate voids between management and sales people.”
Business Investor and Non-executive Director
“I’ve seen the benefit of implementing the Value Based Sales methodology first-hand.
Is well worth the investment.”
Chairman, Non-executive Director and Advisor
“I was very impressed with the approach adopted by Value Based Sales right from the onset. I think it’s the value of continuous improvement and seeking greater efficiencies like shorter closing times, pre-qualification of prospects etc. Highly recommended.”
