Training Course Overview

How can you win key accounts and achieve preferred supplier status with them?

That is a major challenge for many B2B companies and it requires a clear key account strategy to build multiple relationships at various levels in the customer’s organisation. It requires an in-depth knowledge of the customer’s challenges, and insight that helps you to increase your value to them, so that they see you as a valuable partner rather than just another transactional supplier.

This COPEX training course shows you how to do it and succeed. It is based on real-life B2B examples that the course director has used to help real companies achieve preferred supplier status.
