1. KICKOFF. This is the moment when we all get to know each other for the first time: teachers, organisers, and participants, and YOU!
2. SALES MOTIVATION & PRE-SALES. Founder issues and sales are two of the most common problems in startups, so we are here to help. We will help you find the right mindset for you and your team to do effective sales. In the afternoon, we'll give you concrete tools to structure your current pre-sales.
3. SALES ORGANISATION & DEAL CLOSING. We do a "scale your sales" scan and then look at your sales strategy and plan. Afterwards, we continue with "from promise to euro", where we show you how to turn promises into money in your account.
4. SALES PITCHING & AFTER-SALES. Time to fine-tune your sales pitch. In the afternoon, you will learn how to turn your customers into ambassadors (after-sales).
5. SCALE YOUR SALES & TERMS & CONDITIONS. There are two tracks to choose from. We will wrap up this session with an important section on general conditions and the legal framework of sales.
a. Sales Process & Methodology (for startups)
b. Sales Leadership & Team (for scalers)
6. RETURN VISIT. 6 weeks after the “scale your sales” session, we schedule return visit to check up on your progress and give you more advice.
7. FOLLOW-UP. We will review your efforts after 6 & 12 months to make sure you’re still on your path to success.
