    Topic - Push / Pull: How Normal People Can Relish Improving Their Sales Performance

    Synopsis:

    Businesses are either growing or dying; winning new business is critical and yet most of us hate selling. This seminar relooks at what it is to sell

    Content:

    This seminar is of interest to those who:

    * Are not sales people
    * Think sales is a necessary evil
    * Are thinking that they need to get better outcomes
    * Want to be seen differently by buyers

    Agenda:

    * What normal people think of sales people and why
    * Reframe perceptions; from personality to value based selling
    * Why people buy
    * A process to embed improvement

    About The Presenter:

    As an 'imperfect sales professional' Steve has spent his career selling for companies ranging from micro start ups to aggression fuelled US tech companies. Propositions have included products you can pat, shake hands with and, most often, that have no presence in the real world. There has never been a recognised brand, marketing budget, vibrant user base or RFP.

    Presenter - Caroline Dakin

    Topic - Developing Personal Resilience

    Life can be testing. Inevitably, we all face challenges and setbacks at some time in our lives, and how quickly and easily we bounce back from these is down to our own personal resilience. Continual change, increasing demands and the pace of work in many organisations means that we must not only build new and different capabilities, but actively develop our levels of personal resilience for the body and mind.

    This workshop, based on scientific research, will ensure that you know exactly how to do this.

    Resilience is not something that we have or do not have, it's something that we can develop on a daily basis.

    What we mean by resilience and why resilience underpins our happiness, productivity and success in life.

    What happens in our brain and body when we respond to challenging situations and how to deal with this so that stress doesn't overwhelm us and derail our ability to realise our potential.

    The importance of our physiological and psychological resilience protection factors and how we can ensure we develop them effectively to become the most resilient versions of ourselves.

    Habits and practices of the most resilient people from around the world and what we can learn from them.

    Increasing your self-awareness - find out which areas of resilience you need to develop and create an action plan to do this

    Caroline has over 12 yearsâ experience of delivering training in large corporate organisations, both nationally and internationally. After spending much of her career working in busy and varied people development roles for both the financial services industry and a national property company, Caroline established a training company specialising in developing resilience. Caroline believes that resilience is an essential skill all individuals, teams and leaders should develop to ensure they are protected from the challenges that life can bring.

    Working with businesses, schools and colleges, Caroline brings a unique and fresh approach to training. Believing that people learn best when they are having fun, Caroline aims to make her workshops and programmes engaging, thought provoking and ultimately life changing.

    Caroline is a keen advocate of development resources, notably books, podcasts and blogs. She believes that a key way people can drive their own careers is by developing a regular and consistent commitment to their own personal development.

    Presenter - Ben Griffiths, Clever IT

    Topic - How Savvy SME's Can Use IT To Enhance Their Business

    Tech is the future - having a good IT strategy can help you attract the best millennial talent, improve productivity and exceed customer expectations.

    Knowing the best IT options for you is tricky for SMEâs but can also be crucial to get ahead of the competition.

    Keep up or get left behind â Like it or not, we live in a society which is becoming increasingly digital and reforms such as Making Tax Digital remind us that, for any industry, itâs a case of either keeping up with the times (and technological advances) or being left behind.


    The real value of IT - for small businesses IT can be very expensive but investing in the right solution doesnât need to cost the earth and done well your IT can help deliver substantial value, protecting your data, improving flexibility and productivity.

    Fitting into the bigger picture â IT is a crucial, over-arching link which connects all business areas together and gets them working in harmony. Investing in IT is sometimes overlooked as a way to improve growth and profit.

    A tech strategy which works for your business model â the traditional office is becoming a set-up of the past, with remote workers playing an increasingly prominent role in many SMEâs. IT can work for your business to provide flexible working for employees and less restrictions.

    Cybercrime â those businesses who invest in the right tech can protect themselves against cybercrime, a growing threat to businesses, particularly SMEs.

    Ben Griffiths, a well-respected entrepreneur from Bolton, shows how he takes a clever approach; combining commercial acumen and IT know-how to deliver highly effective IT solutions for SMEâs.

    Ben has been working with businesses across the North West for over 15 years, using his insight and expertise to provide IT solutions which align with the commercial strategy and growth plans of a business.

    Topic - Digital Evolution - Your Service Business Online

    This month's seminar is being presented by Tim Thomas-Peter and Scott Bamford from Ambidect Ltd.

    Tim says,"You will have heard âDigital Transformationâ used in the media. It can be an expensive and disruptive journey for any business.

    We believe in a different process - Digital Evolution: Your service business online â what does it mean, how do you get there, and what are the opportunities?"

    Tim goes on to explain,"Products have been sold online for years. There are mature technologies and processes that have been fine-tuned to load up a catalogue and start selling. There's nothing very innovative happening in that space. You can do it fairly easily if you need to.

    But what do you do when you have a service that cannot simply be listed on Amazon? There are opportunities right now to deliver an individual digital experience that most havenât even dreamt of.

    Why is this important? Where do you start? And what are the real opportunities? These are some of the questions weâll answer while we take you through 3 priceless tips on digital evolution."

    Tim and Scott are at the forefront of what it means to create a digital experience. In their combined 50 years working in and with businesses of all shapes and sizes, they have seen technology revolutionise lives more than once.

    They believe the next revolution is one for service business delivery. Itâs already here and it may not be what you expect.

    Synopsis:

    If you're feeling anti-social about using social media for your business, or, perhaps you're already doing it and wonder if it's making any difference to your sales! We'll give you the low down on getting social media right for your business, and explain what's to love, like, laugh at or feel angry about when writing content (click appropriate emoticon!)

    You'll find out what platforms work best and why, and why social doesnât always result in sales, plus how social can lead to excellent sales too, for very little cost investment.

    Learn how to whip your whole month's social media content plan into a 1 hour job per month, and what language to use when writing it. And, what to write about; even if you've the most boring product or services.

    We'll also share how to find your customers on Facebook, why you have to pay to even be seen these days (to people already following you!), and how to drive people from social media straight to your website.

    If there's time we'll also talk about the benefits of using video, infographics and other shareable content too.

    Presenter - Chris Moran from JCM Business Solutions

    Topic - Be Radical: Work Less!

    Synopsis:

    At the end of last year, we posed the question,"Why can't we work 4 days a week and still grow the company?"
    With all the latest business innovations and software available to SMEs, is this possible? It's been an interesting journey which has revealed some curious facts about the business! Join Chris Moran as he take us through the thought processes and changes that needed to be made, and if JCM have actually managed it.

    The project has presented challenges, successes and failures and has helped redefine some of the core values of the business.

    Where we lead others follow! As I write this, I note that Amazon have started a project to see if they can work a 4 day week at one of their US centres!

    Chris Moran is Managing Director of JCM Business Solutions, a Zoho Elite partner, specialising in Cloud Based CRM and business solutions.
