“We contacted Steve Rowe to give a presentation at a NMBS Sales Conference – since then we have used him extensively for Sales Management Support and Training and would recommend his services to any business looking to get genuine sales growth”.
Chris Hayward, Managing Director
Hunter Plastics Ltd.
“After seeing Steve Rowe present at a National Merchants Buying Society conference we liked what he had to say and arranged to meet with him to discuss training for our sales team. Steve put together bespoke training sessions from which our team has benefitted. We brought Steve back at our National Sales Meeting to re-enforce and progress the earlier training. Steve understood our requirements and delivered interactive sessions which involved whole team participation and met the objectives set. In particular Steve has added value to our sales force partly due to his skill in getting them to “open up” and describe what makes their everyday selling life difficult and then working with them to overcome their issues and customer objections. Our team is now creating more active selling time and is more productive”.

I have found working with Brian Sellers to be stimulating, thought provoking and demanding. Brian quickly understood the core requirements of our business, and worked together with our senior team to draw together a strategy for growth and development of the business. He was insightful and drew from his varied business experience to guide us towards solutions. I recommend him to any business looking for new focus on their core strengths and their customers.

My background is ICT technical support/project management and have little or no sales experience. The course is easy to follow and without any complexity, you can do it in your own time and in any order.

“Phil (Partington) has been a fantastic mentor to me, helping me improve my commercial perspective significantly. He helped me create an assertive and practical Marketing Plan with a clear set of actions and review points to keep us on track. He coached me in the ‘art’ of sales and taught me how to do the key things right. His willingness to go ‘beyond the brief’ has been really valuable”.
Rowan Bradley, Managing Director
“It was critical to me that I set out a clear strategy and growth plan to ensure I was able to track my progress and understand what was and wasn’t working for me. With Phil’s help, I was able to do this efficiently and effectively. His experience, expertise and grasp of business issues facing a start-up has been really useful in mentoring me to steer the business on the right course. Phil’s unique blend of humour and straight talking makes him easy to work with and the results speak for themselves; I am ahead of my plan and with his continued help I plan to keep it that way!”
Tim Rookes, Managing Director
“We were making solid, steady progress until Phil came along and all of a sudden, the business took off. I must admit, I was sceptical about the claim that we would recoup at least eight times the cost of his service in new business and I was right. It was more like twenty times!”
“Do not be misled by Phil’s self-deprecating style. He knows his stuff and has helped me transform our approach to the business sector. Phil’s added real value to our corporate sales strategy, bringing much needed tools and processes to the business, which will undoubtedly ensure we win more of the business we bid for. I can’t recommend him highly enough. I hope we will be working together long into the future!”
