BECOMING A BETTER SELLER OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

 

A how-to seminar for design and technical professionals

Could every person in your firm describe your services in a succinct and persuasive way that demonstrates what sets you apart from the competition? It’s not enough to have the technical expertise to complete projects, you need seller-doers who can convey excitement and tailor the message for the audience. Everyone is not a born seller, but everyone can learn how to be more effective at capitalizing on opportunities, creating business, marketing, and promotion.

A/E/C Business Development Training is a one-day seminar that was specifically developed to help design and technical professionals in architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental firms become more comfortable dealing with clients and promoting the firm and your services.

This course is complementary to Real Marketing and Branding for AEC Firms, making the two courses together the ultimate training for driving growth.
