Today, we’re super excited to be partnering with Salesforce to launch School of Sales – a powerful new initiative that will help 10,000 small businesses boost their selling skills.
Delivered via the Enterprise Nation platform, the free six-month programme is designed to bridge the ‘sales skills gap’ via a network of expert trainers, engaging online events, insightful e-learning modules and one-on-one coaching.
If you’re a small business, you can register for School of Sales right away. You can access e-learning, workshops, advisers and specialist sales trainers.
“There is a sales skills gap amongst small businesses and they tell us sales and marketing are the key skills they need support with to return to profitability after the pandemic,” said Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones.
“This initiative will deliver targeted support via a national network of trainers across the UK and Ireland to help bridge this gap, get them back out there selling and building to create a brighter future for business.”
Brigid Charmant, Salesforce’s senior area vice president for emerging, small and medium businesses, said that smaller businesses have had to “fundamentally rethink their operating models” in recent months.
“We’ve seen an accelerated shift to digital which is now an imperative to the survival of businesses as we continue to move to an all-digital, work-from-anywhere world,” she explained.
“Digitisation is critical to post-pandemic recovery and so too are the emerging new skills required. We’re proud to partner with Enterprise Nation to help upskill and reskill small businesses who are the backbone to our society.”
