Sales talk is never boring! Follow an impactful journey through the sales process to refine your current methods. In four separate round robin segments, Cory Gosik, Heidi Brice, Tim Seeberg, and Steve Sanchez will discuss topics across the life of a sale.
In session 2: Now that you have the potential buyer on the phone, what next?? As caterers, we wear many hats. More often, caterers use their artistic hay by creating fantastic events, but leave their sales hat on the shelf. Heidi will guide you through developing language that works for your organization that qualifies your buyers. This important step will eliminate some of the lost time in proposal creation for unqualified buyers.
NOTE: Each of these four sessions will run four times, beginning at 12:45, 1:15, 2:00, and 2:30. Start in whichever area of sales suits you and move to the next room when the bell rings!
