EUROMOVERS International

The independent voice of the global moving industry


New corporate sales and coaching programme

Jul 01, 2014
A new independent corporate sales training and coaching programme for the international moving and relocation industry has been launched by a group of seasoned industry professionals.

Corporate Sales 101, run by Kevin Pickford, Adrian Young and Andreas Eibel will provide training at international locations including London, Los Angeles, Kuala Lumpur, Phuket and Melbourne.

The courses are ideally suited to those who already have several years'
experience in a corporate sales environment and are designed to develop their skills and talents to directly improve sales and profitability.


“Corporate Sales 101 came about following discussions over the past few years with friends in the industry as to what was missing and what is needed,” said Adrian Young. “I also recall years ago when I was working at Asian Tigers China, we wanted external training and there was nothing on offer other than FIDI. We needed training and coaching that was more personal, and that’s what we now aim to deliver.”


In the weeks prior to the course, the CS101 team will contact each participant directly to understand the benefits they intend to gain from the course and to explain the preparation that is required for each attendee.


Course topics include; identifying targets and managing them effectively, the psychology of selling, understanding your client and adapting methods accordingly, making insurance sales to corporate accounts, understanding integrity and corporate compliance, and account management for long-term partnerships. The fee per attendee for the three-day programme is $2450.


Adrian continued, “We currently have six courses scheduled, KL which is now sold out, London 3-5 July, Los Angeles and Houston in early August, Melbourne in late August and Phuket in late October. We are extremely excited about the market reaction selling out in KL in just under three weeks and a number of very strong enquiries for London.”


Corporate Sales 101 will also be releasing Webinar dates soon covering a variety of topics.
