Gate Keepers or Match Makers – what’s your mindset?

TIME Associates - Are you using your Act Pro’s as part of your sales strategy?

Glenn Hoy from TIME associates attended last weeks regional meeting chaired by James Jennison. Sharing ideas and support from one franchisee to another was the main focus of the meeting. There was one interesting point that Glenn wanted to share with the rest of the network and that was how to best utilise your Activity Professionals as part of your sales resource.

As a requested outcome from this meeting, James and I will be running a one-day workshop in August and we’ll be adding this topic as one of the agenda points. We’d also like to hear from you on how your business could benefit on this day. Either by sharing what you are already doing or asking what topics you would like us to cover.

If you have any questions about the workshop or sales in general, feel free to contact Glenn.
