"I would have never imagined that the buying/buyer process would be so different. Even if you think you know how to sell to WalMex, take the course because you don't."
"This workshop was an outstanding investment of our training dollars. Rather than a standard dry presentation, this workshop actually gave us information that we can use (a novel concept!). The fact that the instructor could tell us what to expect from buyers - who they are, how they work, why they work the way they do, etc. - gave us all tremendous insights that we can begin using right away."
