Soft Skills Monday – How to sell M365 to the business, Problem-Solution Mapping (1 day)
Customers buying behavior has changed throughout the last couple of years, a change that affected how they assess, evaluate, and buy IT-solutions. The buyers are acting safer today, they expect salespeople to be more consultative, understand their business and to be able to articulate the value of the solution they are proposing. On top of this, recent studies stress that more and more IT purchase decisions being made by the “business” (Line of Business managers) and including the CFO at the customer.
Microsoft 365 is basically (in many people’s opinion) Windows and Office 365 in a bundle, so what is the big deal? The problem is that even the best technical solution, where the benefits at least seen from a technical standpoint are so obvious, are turned down by customers every day - Why? The answer is simple - major buying decisions are typically not made by IT but by the " business-people" in the customers organization, and they don´t care about all the great technical features, functions, or benefits. They care about the business impact and if they cannot see this - they won’t buy.
During this 1-day highly interactive Microsoft 365 workshop, the participants work with all aspects of a non-technical sale within this area, a sale where the focus will be on communicating the business value of a Microsoft 365 solution to the business. The training will include how to position this area to the business (Problem-Solution mapping) as well as how to justify or prove the value.
Key takings the delegates will walk away with are:
A unique framework and sales approach when selling and positioning Microsoft 365 to customers
A thorough insight into what kick-starts and drives a customer buying process and how this can be influenced and controlled from a sale perspective.
A method for how to sell Microsoft 365, not only to the IT-people but more importantly to the LOB (Line of Business)
A method for how to communicate a fairly technical solution in a language LOB understands.

Soft Skills Monday - Powerful and Winning Presentations, part I (1 day)
Buyer’s behavior has changed over the last 2-3 years, and today´s buyers are fed up with “data dumps” and product saturated, overwhelming slideshow presentations. They tell us, We want to know that sellers understand our business issues and have the capabilities that will allow us to solve our problems with great results – and we want presentations that “stand out” – also in the virtual setting. The problem is that most companies hire the same type of people that sells the same products the same way, delivering the same messages through the same type of presentations. So how do we differentiate ourselves? Buyers want clear, concise messages that demonstrate the value they will receive. Sellers who can identify their prospects pain and articulate a vision for a solution always have the best chance of winning the business. The question is: “How do we in sales meet these challenges when it comes to presentations?”
Presentation's don´t sell – People do!
When delivering presentations to a general audience, your colleagues or to a customer, a successful presentation isn’t about the PowerPoint slides you create – it’s about much more than that.
