High Impact, High Return

Psychology is one of the main components of day one. 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. As a luxury expert you need to incorporate specific psychological aspects to create a loyal customer that keeps coming back to you time and again, but more importantly; also refers your company to their contacts.

Day one, 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.

Day Two | The Art of Networking

Stay Informed and Capitalise

Whatever your product or service, it is important to master the art of networking. Networking allows you 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. You will need to identify what you want to gain from networking, how to allocate your resources, which people to focus on and where to find new contacts. Before attending networking sessions, you will need to know how to present yourself using a carefully crafted but casually delivered personal pitch. Your aim is to create a positive and memorable impression on the people you meet through networking. The entire process requires practice until you become an expert.

Day two helps participants analyse their current networks and recognise key contacts which can then be targeted. This helps to optimise time spent while networking.

Day Three | Presentation Skills

Deliver your message with clarity

As luxury experts, it is imperative that participants are able to deliver interesting, effective and memorable presentations. The main objective as a presenter is to deliver a message. The presentation is 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.

If participants are inexperienced or new to delivering presentations within their role, this module teaches how to gather their content, how to deliver and how to make their message stand out from others.

It is also excellent for more experienced presenters, who might suffer from bad habits accumulated over time, maybe a lack of knowledge of new tools and techniques. This module helps experienced presenters to master the skill through many hands on exercises so they can leverage their current experience to polish their presentations and deliver outstanding client presentations.

Day Three | Personal Branding

Market Yourself

Today, with the breath-taking advances in technology, we are more connected than ever before. There is also a lot more competition and people all over the planet are competing with one another to provide products and services. In such a competitive market, what comes to define a person’s output is their brand. Much like branding being a crucial part of a company’s marketing strategy, personal branding is just as important for high performing luxury sales experts.

Many think of personal branding as something for those working in the creative industry such as actors, singers or musicians. In reality, personal branding is essential for everyone. To get better results and succeed, you need to be able to popularise your ideas and become well-known. Personal branding helps participants build their image and spread their ideas.

Personal branding follows the same principles of branding and marketing but it is applied to an individual. This module provides a structured approach to help participants define, plan and execute a branding strategy.
