“Our annual sales kick-off meeting is key to setting the stage for success early in the year and training always plays a key role in our agenda. Since we had trained over 500 sales people already in negotiation, we were looking for a way to refresh their skills but we only had a 3-hour slot available. The BEAR ESSENTIALS™ program was the perfect solution. It helped us not only refresh our existing team on sales negotiation techniques they learned previously, but it also helped us “onboard” new hires who had not been trained. The program was a hit. Not only was it fun, but the instructor was amazing, keeping everyone involved in learning and providing meaningful techniques that people could use right away.”
