Erin works directly with the EMEA team to ensure consistency across implementations and operational services.

Erin works closely with Richardson Sales Performance customers to create contracts that clearly define all the details of a solution and ensure the training plan delivers value.

“In my role I have the opportunity to start adding value for clients at the very start of our relationship. I am grateful for the opportunity to set the groundwork for a long and mutually beneficial partnership.  Part of the secret to my success is my consultative negotiation skills.  The core tenant of Richardson Sales Performance’s Consultative Negotiations training programme focuses on resolving customer objections throughout the sales cycle, which ensures win-win outcomes.”
