“Next to a direct referral, we’ve found Sell By Design™ is our best way to crack into an account.”


You’ll have hands-on opportunities to practice with your peers, including an opportunity to ‘get out in the field’ and demonstrate your skills in the real-world.

Wrap up a fun day of learning with a social hour, and leave with more knowledge, greater connections, and a renewed sense of inspiration in sales. Plus it will be fun! Our clients have routinely experienced incredible breakthroughs in their accounts with these tools.

At a time when science is becoming increasingly important to sales teams, we recognized that the art of sales is lagging. Most sales organizations in the world find authentic customer-centricity beyond reach.

Why? Technology and business practices have overemphasized the science of selling to the detriment of its art.

And the cost is real, since at the end of the day people, buy from people they trust. We’re not suggesting you toss your sales science out the window. Keep using predictive analytics to identify buyers and buying behavior but compliment it with a toolkit from the design thinking space that’s been proven to deepen relationships, enhance collaboration, and increase deal size.
