"We’ve definitely increased our clientele, we've seen an increase in the number of quotes that are going out.
We’ve built up our funnel again, I think we’ve nearly tripled what we’ve had prior to the course.
And then, we also used the course to structure the people, to the follow through with what they’ve got in the various funnels.
I think a course like this brings a lot of value to any organisation. I don’t think it’s possible to say it’s for a specific company or a specific type of sales person – I think it’s beneficial to anyone that’s in sales."
