MINNEAPOLIS, May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Plymouth-based company The Sales Board, creator of Action Selling™ and Customer Relationship Professional™, announced it has been included in the Top 20 Sales Training Companies by industry authority Selling Power® magazine. This is the seventh Top 20 selection for The Sales Board.
According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is a key area of competitive differentiation for B2B sales teams. "To compete today, B2B sales leaders must invest in the right kind of sales training for their teams," says Gschwandtner. "Most salespeople are weakest in the area of selling skills, and improvements can make a huge difference in revenue achievement. We are proud to announce this list of sales training companies that can help sales leaders sort through their options and select the best partner to help them improve."
The Sales Board submitted a comprehensive application to Selling Power. Four main criteria were used to select Action Selling to the Top 20:
Depth and breadth of training offered
Contributions to the sales-training market
Strength of client satisfaction
Selling Power magazine editors say the companies on the 2018 Top 20 Sales Training Companies list represent the best potential to help sales teams improve their performance and remain competitive in any selling environment.
