Business Development and Business Relationships Training


This course is delivered by:

Hayley Phipps, Lesley Mcdonald

Our building business and building business relationships course is focussed around how we engage, how we interact and how we can develop even better relationships with our customers. This 1 day business development training covers key aspects of communication loops, our personal presentation styles, whole body listening (often described as body language), our confidence network and presentation techniques.

We will cover all aspects of building relationships as well as covering what we and you think are key fundamentals to building better relationships.
