Sales Health Check

Once good marketing communications has done its work, there is an assumption that sales will easily follow. 

Just like marketing, successful selling involves planning. There are questions you need to ask to form an approach to selling: How well do you know your customers and how do you access them? Do they come to you, do you visit, do you sell remotely? Do you have supporting materials? Are your set targets achievable? Effective sales planning helps to maximise the opportunities created by marketing communications and gives direction to your sales team. Our Sales Health Check package includes:  

  • • Feedback on your current sales process
  • • Audit of existing sales aides
  • • SWOT analysis of your sales landscape
  • • Sales workshop for your team
  • • Getting the basics right
  • • Recommend actions on sales approach and materials
  • • Review of current sales targets

Medical Education

The term ‘medical education’ (sometimes referred to as MedEd or MedComms) refers to any activity designed to maintain or improve the performance, knowledge or skills of healthcare professionals (HCPs). There are a myriad of education channels and disruptive innovations now available to HCPs, meaning companies need to be braver and more creative in how they educate.  Whether this is accredited, or non-accredited, medical educational activities are an invaluable offering that helps to drive forward clinical practice that ultimately improves patients’ health outcomes.
