Advanced Selling Skills

Selling today is more competitive than ever before. Sales success demands a new breed of calibre professionals with advanced selling skills. Whatever the factors that helped salespeople to where they are today is not enough to keep them there. Corporate survival today is absolutely dependant on a world-class sales force.
