Corporate sales training in Washington DC is available from many vendors and in multiple forms. There are one-day seminars, virtual conferences, and one-on-one coaching. There are plenty of big names, as well as smaller boutique firms, so it can take a while to identify and sort through them all.
Rather than searching on Google for endless hours to find the right solution, narrow your search for a firm by using the following resources.
Referrals/Word of Mouth
The best choice is to simply ask your fellow industry professionals in the area for help selecting the right corporate sales training in Washington DC. This is especially useful for finding trainers who have experience in your niche, such as government sales, defense contractors, software, etc. They will be able to speak your language – since they have obviously done it before with your referrer.
Referrals tend to be the most unbiased and trustworthy, as long as the referrer is not receiving anything of value from the company they are vouching for.
The Washington DC Chamber of Commerce
Good place to network in general, plus they have a searchable database of businesses which provide training and development services, as well as consulting. Check out the website at https://www.dcchamber.org/
Furthermore, if you don’t already have a strong network of people to ask for referrals as described earlier, attending Chamber events in person can be a great way to develop one.
The Training Industry Website
The Training Industry is an excellent resource with a training search engine that allows you to find trainers by industry, city, and other filters. While the site is geared towards training professionals, you don’t have to be a trainer to use this resource.
To find the right business sales trainer in Washington, simply type “sales training” or similar and narrow it down to Washington DC…and voila!
This last one will be a better resource as times goes on – right now the results on Yelp! are admittedly sparse for corporate sales training in Washington DC. However, I am including it here because it is currently the number one site for user-generated reviews. It is moving beyond just being a resource to find a great restaurant – other business categories are starting to fill up with reviews as well.
Try looking in the Business Education category, or look up the specific firm you are considering to see if any reviews have been written about them
