The FIT Show believes that it is now time to recognise those upon whom our industry was founded: our sales men and women. For too long (and often justifiably) the butt of sitcom humour, it is now appropriate to seek out, recognise and reward those that are literally at the ‘sharp end’ of the window, door and conservatory industry…those that now deserve to be called Sales Professionals.
The FIT Show Sales Professional of the Year competition, organised in association with online lead generator Quotatis, is the first event created to recognise and reward those in the front line that take the industry’s products to homeowners, who provide the sales that literally keep the industry alive.
Through a series of stages The FIT Show Sales Professional of the Year competition will filter and sort the entrants, eventually ending with 20 of the very best the industry can yield. And then the serious business of finding the very best of those begins.
The final 20 will each be put through a series of tests in which they will have the opportunity to show off their sales abilities – and inabilities – to be judged by a team of some of the most skilled and respected experts in the business; professionals that have earned the right to judge and recognise others.
The ultimate accolade of becoming The FIT Show Sales Professional of the Year will bring honour and reward in itself. However, as an additional incentive a ‘commission’ of £5,000 for the winner will also provide a very real incentive for entering and winning.
Additionally, the winner’s employer will also enjoy an incentive for backing and nurturing their star sales professional, with a cheque for a further £5,000. An additional prize of a one day sales master class worth £1500 from one of the UK’s best known professional sales trainers, Paul Clifton, will ensure that backing their star will become a very serious and worthwhile investment indeed.
The winner will be announced at the FIT Show Gala Awards dinner, which takes place in April 2013, offering the opportunity to be applauded and celebrated by your peers and of course, the chance to celebrate in style.
So what are you waiting for? Show the world just how professional you are, why you are the very best at what you do.
