Sales workshop for small Inishowen firms 02.03.11

SALES experts in the North West will be hosting a workshop in Burt next week to show small local businesses how to sell more effectively.
The event, called 'Hope is not a strategy – using tested techniques to drive better sales results', is being organised by Donegal County Enterprise Board as part of Enterprising Donegal Business Week 2011.
Keynote speaker and workshop facilitator will be North West sales consultant Stephen Friel. Other speakers will include Seamus McEwen, founder of McEwen Electrical, Monica McGeary of Integrated Marketing Management and Paddy Devlin of Devlin Associates. The event will provide a practical overview of the key points for developing a successful sales strategy for your business.
“Stephen and the rest of the panel will show local businesses a practical set of tools they can use to get better at selling, using real-life examples to explain how the tools work," said Donegal County Enterprise Board assistant chief executive, Ursula Donnelly.
After completing studies at the University of Ulster and Kent State University in Ohio, Stephen Friel joined Sony Ireland in Dublin, progressing to become senior sales manager with the company. He also completed his MBA at the same time.
Seamus McEwen has been in business for 28 years while Monica McGeary founded Integrated Marketing Management, a telesales business, 10 years ago. Before setting up his own consultancy, Paddy Devlin had over 15 years experience as sales and marketing manager for craft bakery Genesis and Provita Eurotech Ltd. The workshop takes place on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 8am in An Grianan Hotel, Burt.
