“Collaborative working – no sales person is an island, or they shouldn’t be! The calls have to go out and the spade work has to be done but when you’re working through the implementation of complex sales campaigns sometimes putting your heads together and combining intellectual property gathered on a call by call basis can bring great results.

“In the “war room”.  Much of work with clients is about collaborative problem solving. Rather than choosing a traditional board room set up – this room is set up to accommodate the whole project team. By that we mean the sales and marketing teams from our clients and the full Broadley Speaking team active on their account. There’s plenty of room to accommodate everyone’s laptops, iPads!”

“Holistic approach to sales – often we work with clients to help them reposition their sales propositions. Acting as ‘critical friend’ we’ll work right back to their core value proposition in order to refocus and provide new impetus to their sales campaign. Similarly we work with clients sales teams and management to provide individually crafted sales coaching and training programmes.”

“Our environment –  we have created a light, modern, ergonomically designed work area to allow for maximum efficiency, comfort and pleasure – yes pleasure! We all spend a good deal of time at work , and do difficult and challenging work on behalf of our clients ; but it should be fun. We are fortunate that we have been able to create this in an historically significant building in the middle of World Heritage site.”
