Selling Ideas 1 DAY


This workshop is tailored for anyone who has to sell ideas – their own or others.

To sell successfully the salesperson needs to craft their sales pitch and to understand that to be successful, both parties must feel they have benefited from the transaction.

In order to do this when selling ideas, the delegates must accept they are in the business of ‘selling’.

This course is specifically designed to help delegates to maximise the ‘buying experience’ for their clients


Who will Benefit?

Anyone who has to sell ideas – whether the original creator or another team member.

Typically, a prospective delegate may lack confidence or feel unable to put together a

logical argument or find it difficult to bring an idea alive. They may have only just started

in the business or have years of experience. Maximum 8 delegates.


Workshop outcomes:

  • A better understanding of the ‘client’s viewpoint’.
  • What is the most ‘persuasive case for buying’.
  • The skills to sell the logic behind the idea.
  • The confidence to bring an ‘idea alive’, helping the client get into the right ‘mind frame’ for creativity and the right ‘visual frame’ to understand.
  • A step-by-step plan of action they can follow when selling their ideas.
