About the Business Solutions Sales Development Programme

New sales are the lifeblood of any business and this Programme is all about providing participants with both the skills and confidence to go after new sales opportunities – both during the Programme and beyond.

In a nutshell, we want to assist you to sell more, more quickly and make more profit than would otherwise be the case.

What will it involve?

You will:

  • Attend 2 practical workshops whose purpose is to give you both the skills and the confidence that you will need to identify, target and exploit new business opportunities successfully.
  • Be allocated an experienced mentor who will work with you on a one to one basis to fast-track your sales growth efforts.
  • Receive support in the form of sales prospecting. We will target potential customers on your behalf and set up meetings where there are real business opportunities for you.
  • Be helped to develop a practical sales growth plan that will serve as a “road map” for your business for the next 2 – 3 years.

Who should apply?

You should apply if:

Your business is based in the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area.
Your business has growth potential
You are committed to finding new customers, holding on to existing ones and maximizing business opportunities arising.

Please note that LCCC will review each application on its own merit and will assess the suitability for the Programme of each applicant accordingly

How much will it cost?

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is committed to supporting the growth aspirations of SMEs in the area. Consequently, the Sales Development Programme is heavily subsidised by the Council.

The cost to you will therefore be only £199 + VAT. We will invoice this amount to you at the beginning of the Programme and this must be paid on commencement.
