CBWC 2018 Launch Event - "Turn Customers into your Best Salespeople"

Our first CBWC event of 2018 took place on February 7th in Hotel Kilmore. 

Fiona Flynn from Foresight was our keynote speaker and delivered her workshop on how to "Turn Customers into your Best Salespeople".

Fiona explained how winning more business from existing customers, and even better having existing customers refer their colleagues and friends to our business, can be up to 10 times less expensive than winning new clients.

With over 20 years experience as a sales and marketing professional, including 12 years in the highly competitive telecommunications and internet industry, Fiona shared valuable her expertise in building and developing sales teams to deliver growth and market share in a competitive business environment.
