Intelligent Sales

“Our white board culture. When we refurbished the office a number of years ago someone came up with the neat idea that instead of using regular wallpaper we should cover the walls with write on / wipe off material, so effectively all available wall space has been turned over to one great big white board. The space is used for writing up team plans, monitoring performance, and listing achievements on a  team by team basis.”

Intelligent Sales

“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. The Broadley Speaking teams get time to think and problem solve. Breaking new contracts, often measured in seven figures, is not easy work.”

Intelligent Sales

“Seamless connections with clients – We work with businesses, of all sizes, right across the UK, in  Europe and in North America. We work with them in our office and theirs and use our state of the art video conferencing facilities to keep in touch.
