Challenges We Solve

Many of the businesses we are working with are looking to increase market share by growing sales in core and developing markets. Others are looking to increase efficiencies within their sales team by harnessing data. There is also a trend among businesses to reposition their sales teams in response to the digitisation of the buyer journey, or re-educate their sales teams to be subject matter experts who can then become trusted advisors to buyers.  

We have supported clients on programmes as wide-ranging as:

  • Transforming under-performing sales teams
  • Negotiating major customer and distributor contracts
  • Taking companies into new markets
  • Managing multiple sales channels
  • Amalgamating post M&A sales operations
