The two men at the helm of this corporate ship both have extensive industry knowledge and experience within their sectors. James Randle has had a vast career in sales and marketing from direct sales through to business to business corporate sales, assisting some of the biggest company names in the UK including four out of the top five British food retailers. Colin Durrant currently has over 15 years’ experience in IT as well as running successful IT companies since 1999. His experience lies with supporting network infrastructure and web development and on one of their managed websites they built up over 20’000 unique visitors per month which was more than the car manufacturer Subaru at the time. For both directors after year upon successful year, training others seems the next logical step for them. “It is exciting times for us and will be so rewarding to see businesses that may struggle with sales and marketing or, want to add new direction to what they currently do flourish with the techniques we will teach them”.
So, what makes A.C.T so special? Why should you choose them as your training provider? James Randle tells us why: “My career in sales spans many years and in that time I have come across so many sales managers. Some inspirational, some not so inspirational would be a polite way of putting it. In my early years as a sales professional I could never understand why I couldn’t hit my targets, I mean I was spending all day making cold calls, so what wasn’t I doing right. I was pulled into a sales review meeting by my manager and his answer to all my problems was…You need to up your activity. Right, so I’m currently spending seven and a half hours a day cold calling and you want me to up it, see what I mean about not so inspirational. However, after discovering new techniques to supplement my calls I was quickly exceeding my targets every month and becoming one of the highest performers in the company. And that is what we teach, getting amazing sales results without having to spend all day cold calling. Couple this with amazing training on how to boost your Google rankings yourself by Colin and email support from the both of us post course and you have a recipe for success. The world is changing and our sales and marketing efforts need to change with it”.
A.C.T is hosting a networking event with a taster session from each course on Thursday 22-11-2012 at a conference centre in Coventry. The open courses themselves are due to start in the new year coming to a hotel near you very soon.
