Steve recognises that the role of the sales professional is changing rapidly. Products, services and the challenges faced by clients have become more complex. At the same time, buyers have become more sophisticated and have many more options to choose from when solving challenges and seizing opportunities. These factors require progressives sales professionals to elevate their role from product expert to trusted adviser.
