At the Heart of Every Family Tradition Lies a Great Experience Worth Repeating

Maximizing Your Sales Potential

About This Session:
We’ve yet to meet the business owner who has complained that he or she has too much business or that record sales are a problem. All businesses large or small depend on sales to survive. And the key to boosting sales is having employees who understand sales principles and use that knowledge to improve the bottom line.
That’s where “Maximizing Your Sales Potential” with Jim Elsberry comes in.

Elsberry will draw upon his decades of real world experience to share tips on how employees and employers can create a culture of sales within their businesses which will result in increased sales and profits.
This seminar is for anyone who interacts with customers and the people who hire and supervise them. Elsberry will show participants how to develop a cohesive sales organization where everyone is on the same page with shared values and objectives.

Here are a few of the topics we’ll cover at the seminar:

  • How to develop a plan to maximize your company’s sales;
  • What tools your staff needs to execute your plan and
  • How to successfully establish a successful culture of sales from top to bottom in your company.
