The ROI of DEI

Consultative Selling Skills

Thursday, February 18, 2021 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (PST)


Sharpen your selling skills to build relationships and close more business in a virtual world. 

VIATEC is thrilled to welcome back Marie Rice, a Senior Facilitator with DoubleDigit Sales, to lead this VIATEC Academy Selling Series and equip our community with the mindset, skills, and processes to increase sales productivity and performance in a virtual world. 

  • Gain the Edge: Consultative Selling provides a competitive edge for both new and veteran salespeople. Master the art and science of sales with hands-on practice for maximum results back on the job.
  • Shorten the Sales Cycle: Focus on the client’s buying process vs. your own selling process to skillfully navigate the client from low-interest, to convinced and committed. 
  • Increase Customer Loyalty: People buy from people, and with the right mindset, clients begin to see you as a trusted advisor.
  • Close More Business: Master a meeting process that demonstrates respect for your clients’ time, energy, and priority needs. More effective and efficient meetings are proven to help salespeople close more business in less time.

We ran this session in-person to a class of 30 members in March, with an overall rating of 90.75%. Here's what they had to say:

  • 4.5/5 Relevance of the program’s content to my work
  • 4.7/5 Facilitator’s ability to engage with me 
  • 4.5/5 Facilitator’s ability to connect content to my business
  • Describe this program: Credible 4.7/5, Practical 4.6/5, Essential 4.3/5

"Relevant. Relational. Marie was engaging.", "Moved the dial - thanks!" , "Offer this again! Great job.", "You need to do more sessions like this with your members."  

We welcome you to join fellow tech entrepreneurs in an interactive virtual classroom experience that spans the sales cycle in-depth over 4 consecutive weeks.
