Situation: Our client is a very large multinational company based in China with offices worldwide including in the U.S. The company makes industrial ball bearings and related equipment for very small to very large applications.
Challenge: The company BOD requires a 20% growth rate year over year. When we started work for the company, the previous year’s growth rate was 8%. The company has 15 sales directors, 50 regional sales managers and 500 sales people.
Company Growth Strategy: We started with an offsite with the VP of sales and 15 sales directors to develop an overall marketing strategy. Next, the sales aptitude assessment was given to the directors, sales managers and hundreds of sales people. Several sessions of CPQ consulting were delivered. The next offsite consisted of the same management team. They developed a plan to improve 15 sales and marketing processes. Our B2B sales training program was also delivered.

"Multi-national Finnish company increases sales by 42%"
Situation: The client is a multi-national company based in Finland with operations throughout Europe. They manufacture and sell hydraulic components.
Challenge: The operation in China started up well, but after several years, sales slowed down. The company needed a growth strategy in China.
Growth Strategy: We conducted an initial strategic planning session to set the vision and strategic goals for the company. We then assisted the company in improving their B2B sales training and marketing processes, administered the CPQ, sales aptitude assessment, to all customer facing people and trained the salespeople and account managers on how to sell over the next year. Our CEO provided executive coaching to the company CEO. Additional, our GM in China provided HR consulting to the company’s director of HR.
Result: Sales up by 42% in the first year after the assessments, B2B sales training, process improvement and sales and marketing processes had been implemented. Several large new customers were closed and several adjacent markets opened.

I learned to stretch my personality when I need to for better sales results. Most useful was learning about using LinkedIn and a best practice customer feedback process. My entire sales team needs this training. Our management team would benefit also.
Doug Pickrell, Commercial Sales Manager, WHIZ Media Group
It was great for me since I know that I am not a natural salesperson, but I wanted to learn how to do it...Very effective learning tools.

Very effective! A common sense, logical and fact- based approach. Most useful was learning the top ten skills and the application of the sale aptitude questionnaire (CPQ). Other operation, Division and Program mangers responsible for generating new business could use this training.
