KEY ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

Winning, keeping and nurturing clients is core to any organization’s survival. Not just any client, but the right key clients. Key clients are accounts that contribute the main bulk of the business.

They are responsible for generating the needed volume, margin and market share to grow the business and provide clarity to business planning and forecasting. Not only are they crucial to your bottom-line, but they are also the main “targets” of your competitors.

There’s no better way to protect your prized customers than to utilize the strategies of Key Account Management.

Managing multi-layered relationships, developing strategic engagement plans and influencing the decision making process as well as the order size of your key accounts are critical skills that corporate or key account managers must embrace and excel in.

This two-day program will help account managers, business development professionals and corporate sales managers to acquire the necessary skills by providing the appropriate toolkit and best practices in developing, managing, influencing and growing the key accounts.

Account managers, Strategic Account Managers, Sales Consultants, Sales Directors, Business Development Professionals and/or management personnel involved in Key Accounts Management.
