The Psychology of Luxury
Psychology is one of the main components selling to high net worth clients. Within luxury there is an emphasis on customer loyalty, repeat business and customer referral, all of which are responsible for most sales and the long term profitability of any luxury business.

Selling to high net worth clients introduces traditional (influence-based) and modern (facilitation and consultative based) selling techniques and prepares the participants for a variety of sales environments from customer facing selling in the clients homes to sophisticated business-to-business corporate sales involving large projects.
Networking in Luxury
Whatever your luxury product or luxury service, it is important that your ambassadors are able to master the art of networking. Networking allows them to remain in the loop, stay informed of future developments that are not yet made public and to capitalise on people’s knowledge and expertise.
Networking is an art and requires a systematic approach. It is imperative to first identify what gain is required from any form of networking. Learning how to allocate resources, which people to focus on and where to find new contacts is the foundation on which all successful affuent networking is built.
Before attending networking sessions, your ambassadors will need to know how to present themselves using a carefully crafted but casually delivered personal pitch. The aim is to create a positive and memorable impression on the people.
As luxury experts, it is imperative that participants are able to deliver interesting, effective and memorable presentations. The main objective as a presenter of a luxury service or product is to deliver a message, a story and narrative. The presentation is the pitch.
To deliver that pitch perfectly, luxury experts need to borrow from a variety of fields; psychology, art & design, IT, politics and of course their own domain which is the subject of the presentation.
The course teaches participants to overcome bad habits accumulated over time and helps more experienced presenters to master their presenting style through hands-on exercises, so they can leverage their current experience to polish their presentations and deliver outstanding client presentations.
