How to lift your specification sales performance with
industry specific sales training
For more than 10 years, AIS has organised thousands of events representing opportunities for architectural representatives to present products and concepts to architects, consultants and interior designers and our 250 supplier members include almost every type of product you could imagine. During this time, we have seen many sales styles and evidence that there is a lack of sales training specific to architectural specification. Whilst there is a myriad of general sales courses and ones specific to industries such as car sales and real estate sales available, there are no courses that specifically focus on our unique industry: architectural specification sales. Now there is.
AIS’ education and training division, Architree, brings you two intensive one-day workshops in which you will develop effective new skills and acquire invaluable new knowledge that will give you an advantage over your competitors.
We’ll teach you key skills and provide invaluable inside knowledge on how to be a more effective sales representative. They’ll keep you focused, challenge your thinking and give you unique insights that will enhance your business relationships with your specifiers and enable you to become even more successful.
