Sales is one of the few professions that allows you to grow over the course of your life, consistently increasing your income, opening doors and opportunities and, finally, presenting you with a path into sales management and ultimately, sales directorship, if you should choose.
This course will give you an understanding of the foundational aspects that are essential for a career in sales. In addition, you will be equipped with the skills to build your brand as a sales professional and establish meaningful relationships with your customers.
