“We first used Solutions2Success in 2010 as part of a concerted training scheme for our sales team. The team comprised experienced sales personnel from 3 countries with diverse cultural and personal backgrounds. The sales trainer was quickly able to gain the confidence and respect of the whole team, all of whom have provided positive feedback on the courses they received. The coaching sessions were always well structured and delivered with a sense of fun - whilst retaining the necessary professionalism expected. Solutions2success was subsequently retained to deliver additional training and this was further extended to include 1-2-1 coaching sessions. With a firm focus on delivery of targets we would have no hesitation in recommending Solutions2success to anyone requiring sales coaching – at any level.''

Significantly improved enquiry qualification process which resulted in a 75% reduction in enquiry to visit ratio so our consultants could focus on winnable and higher value projects
“Debbie was an excellent trainer who everyone warmed to immediately and the training has increased sales and confidence. As a social enterprise, we take a softer, friendlier approach with our customers and this obviously caused some doubt about whether we should be providing sales training to our consultants. However, Solutions2Success designed a course with a softer approach and everyone who attended was really pleased with this. They learnt how to talk to customers and sell our services without coming across like a salesperson. We would recommend using Solutions2Success to anybody - we've already booked them for another course next month!”Marketing & Comms Manager, Groundwork (rebranded as Newground)
“I went to tender for the delivery of a Sales Management Training Programme for 3 managers in my team (several days spread over 3-4 month period). 'Solutions2Success' was lower than other suppliers - yet the content and delivery was excellent along with the 1-2-1 coaching which was included) and has been well implemented. Within a few months, I was confidently able to promote one of the attendees into a more senior Sales Management position. I would certainly recommend Solutions2Success. Top qualities: Personable, Expert & Good Value”Sales Manager, Yes Telecom

50% improvement in quality appointment making & increased sales pipeline of £2m
“As the manager of the team, who also attended the training I have noticed a dramatic change in the way the team and individuals work. They are also being selective of the opportunities they work on to avoid time wasters and are confident to tackle clients who use competitive products; cost is no longer an issue. Overall I have seen an increase in the number of appointments made, increase in regular business and more importantly the prospect sheets have increased by over £2m as they unearth larger projects to work on. The end of the year will be a true representation of how successful it has been. We are aiming for £5.3m but I believe the team could over achieve and be closer to £6m mark. Thanks again for all your time taken to really understand our company and products and tailor your training so well”Sales Manager, Maxatec

“I would recommend the Solutions2Success Sales Essentials 2 day Open course to anyone, especially if you run your own business. You can be an absolute expert in what you do but if you do not have any professional sales skills you will lose business especially in a recession. I have already secured some high value contracts from just applying some of the strategies and methods I gained from the course. Experience to me is everything and the trainer really proved it with the advice and training she gave me”David Pierce, Business Owner, Evergreen Environmental Pest Control - Small to Medium Business Sector
“Attendees were buzzing after the course; they gained increased confidence and knowledge in presenting. Having conducted several presentations to clients it is obvious they are using the skills gained and they have overcome all the fears they had in presenting to a group of people. I would recommend Solutions2Success to any client and the course proved to provide an excellent return on investment”Jeanette Feaney, Origination & Process Manager, CWV Group
