Why a Program vs. an Event
We are big fans of sales speaking events – they are valuable tools for starting the fire and can help change the way your sales professionals see things. But without follow-up and repetition, results will be minimal. Studies show 22% productivity impact from event-based speaking. Sales training really fans that flame and it requires more than just one day. True sales training programs incorporate accountability through a peer group and/or a manager and dig deeper to change behaviors and create long-term results.

The Forrest Performance Group Training Process first teaches people what the steps of selling are, then helps them create unconscious new behaviors so that they will use the skills automatically. In the end, this process helps sales professionals change their own success paradigm so that they will see themselves as successful.
