WBE2WBE Day Sales Secrets

Our WBE 2 WBE Day: Sales Secrets event was hosted on March 2019 by our WBE Council and EY, a WEConnect International corporate member, at their fabulous offices near Tower Bridge, London, and brought together over 20 of our certified WBEs to understand more about the sales skills everyone should know. Over 40 people attended to learn more about sales structure and techniques to embed into business ethos to drive sales growth. Our external trainer for the day, Nicola Cook from Company Shortcuts, delivered a highly insightful and extremely engaging workshop discussing everything from unique value proposition, effective sales channels, the customer journey, internal sales culture to valuable sales metrics. In addition to the new sales tips everyone took away, it was a great networking event for our WBEs to get to know one another and learn more about each other’s businesses.

Intel, a WEConnect International corporate member, hosted this Supplier Development Workshop at their office in Canary Wharf, London. Attendees learned more about the sourcing selection and RFP process and what organisations look for when they buy goods and services.

Our WBE Council and IBM, a WEConnect International corporate member, hosted our third WBE 2 WBE Day – Collaboration Driving Success event that took place September 2018 in London. The agenda for the day was designed to maximise the opportunity to connect and each WBE attending was invited to briefly present their business to the group.
