I just wanted to thank you again for the class today. I have to admit I had some trepidation going in, and honestly didn’t have the highest expectations. It was by far the most helpful guidance I’ve received since I joined sales, and I can’t wait for the next course. Again, thank you so much, and you’re an amazing teacher!

"It was a pleasure having James Alberson as our trainer for Sandler Training's: Strategic Sales Boot Camp to our Sales and Account Management Department. It truly was an eye opening sales boot camp. One of the best sales courses we have participated in over the many years I have been involved in the CSI US sales group. Great interaction and James is very experienced. It was great to get instruction from such a knowledgeable member of sales. Many of our sales people have attended sales training in the past, and several of them were very leery of having to attend yet another Sales Boot Camp training. I'm happy to say that all of these sales representatives have since implemented several of the Sandler sales tactics including: upfront agenda, how to adjust your communication to maximize results, how to significantly reduce unpaid consulting, and gain commitment to move to the next level, etc. I would definitely recommend Sandler Training and this course for any organization looking to improve sales."

"I came to the Sales Boot Camp with little training in sales and marketing. I had a haphazard sales strategy and was very frustrated by my inability to make beneficial partnerships with referral sources. Sales Boot Camp was a perfect introduction to sales. I now have a system that works for me and, more importantly, I have confidence in my ability to close the deal. Since the training I have had measurable growth in revenue."
