Forget tedious powerpoint-style courses, these charming instructors are on-camera with engaging lectures and fantastic demos. Even if you aren’t in sales you’d be hard-pressed to watch it and not come away with something useful.

VERY INFORMATIVE. I’m glad I have the time to train and certify my staff before our next show. It is important to my staff singing from the same hymnal whether they are sales or production personnel. This course will be just what we need.

More than I expected. The instructors are engaging and make funny but educational demos.

C Champagne


Very clear and easy to follow. I really liked the role playing and learned alot I didn’t know. Never considered you could think of sales conversations as a series of steps.

So glad I found this course before my trade show coming up in December. The examples and the reviews of what was just learned are so much clearer than just reading out of a book. A fun course with Tina and Liz!.
