“We constantly preach the importance of margins as we have far greater potential to positively influence that outcome, than gross sales revenue itself. A few points on the top line translate to huge gains on the bottom line. The Brooks Group’s insight to help us get there have made a huge difference.”
President, R.F. MacDonald Co.
“The content of this workshop helps salespeople be more effective when competing with lower-priced competitors by increasing their awareness of what is actually happening when price seems to become the issue. The program gives them tools to overcome these situations.”
