On January 12th, a sales guide and training session was conducted by Miss Amran Abdi, an expert in school consultation and an entrepreneur. The training started with an introduction from the alumni team present and kicked off with a powerful quote: “Everything is Everything”, a business concept that emphasizes the interconnectedness of all aspects of a company. It’s like a harmonious orchestration where each department, decision, and action functions like musical notes contributing to the success and flow of the business.
The main aim of this training session was to teach attendees how to sell anything to anyone. The training covered various aspects of business, including knowledge of the product, evaluation, the importance of a call to action, effective communication techniques, the power of listening, the impacts of telling a selling story, understanding client needs, aligning with the client’s objectives, and building trust and rapport.
The attendees also learned the benefits of seeking feedback and the power of testimonials. Miss Amran offered our alumni an opportunity to work as sales agents for her new school consultation firm. She promised to continue educating them on business innovation and how to go about it.
The session ended with two powerful quotes: “Innovate or die” – by constantly exploring new ideas, technologies, and processes, businesses can remain competitive, attract new customers, and retain existing ones. And “Some will, some won’t, so what next?” – the key is to focus on interested people and find ways to connect with them. It is important to understand that not everyone will be your target audience, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. Instead, you should keep looking for ways to reach those interested and find creative ways to engage with them.
The sales mastery was not just a training session but a transformative experience that left our alumni with a new perspective on the art of selling a business. We are continually ensuring that we equip our alumni with skills that will help them in their personal and professional journeys of transformation.
