What our learners say
Amazing course, amazing coaching! Don't hesitate. Request Antoine. Invaluable training to any sales team. Constantly gave feedback and created a comfortable learning environment. Highly recommended!
My role is a Sales Development Manager and the WbD concepts are heavily leveraged across my company, so my largest goal was to have a strong understanding of the concepts to coach more effectively in a way the SDR team is familiar with. I certainly left the course with the ability to do just that.
Solid framework to succeed as an SaaS business! Helped us implement a unified approach for prospecting, sales, and renewals across all regions. Our internal sales and marketing processes benefit from that. Solid approach that suits our business!
Winning by Design provides an extremely valuable set of tools for N2uitive as we look to move to a scalable sales team, process and playbook. The training format was excellent. This is now a required element of our Sales Onboarding. Winning by Design is now our go-to Sales Training partner.
