About LMA and LMA Sales Training
'Sales Training in the UK'
In an age of change, training methods for sales, support and management constantly need updating. New abilities and new skills are needed to sell complex products and services at senior level over lengthy sales cycles, against fierce competition.
LMA is an independent training and consultancy company consisting of a number of training specialists who operate as LMA Integrated Sales Training, bringing wide experience across a diverse sector of sales, management and marketing. All LMA trainers and consultants have many years experience and have held senior level management positions with major companies.
Sales training is provided via a regular 2 day Public Sales Workshop "Selling Information Technology Systems and Services" which is held at the Wembley Plaza Hotel - Wembley - London. This programme was developed by Larry Monk in 1983 and is now in its 20th year. The workshop is regularly updated to take account of developments in the market. "Selling Information Technology" is the most successful public sales training workshop ever run in the UK and has become the 'preferred' workshop for IT supplier companies who need to meet 'one off' training requirements.
Most of the work that LMA carry out is tailored in-company workshops for sales, pre-sales technical support and management. Our list of clients is testament to our success in helping clients in a fast moving and competitive environment. In-company training produces many benefits. In particular, it helps to develop improved teamwork, better internal cross-fertilisation of ideas, and a common approach. For lasting results, training alone is often not enough. That is why every LMA assignment can include provision for an immediate post-course review, with further reviews at regular intervals. Involvement can continue as long as you wish.
LMA offers your people at all levels a chance to re-assess their attitudes and sharpen their skills. The aim is not to dispense detailed product knowledge, but to improve the competence and confidence of sales, technical support and management staff in dealing with people both outside and inside their own organisation. The results, in terms of personal achievement and increased sales, are frequently remarkable.
Closely related to training activities are consultancy services covering all aspects of sales, marketing and management. Many consultancy assignments arise out of successfully completed training programmes, from which valuable insight is gained about a client's business. This then enables us to act as an additional but objective outside resource.
