In the April 2017 SalesProChat podcast, we focus on the basics of Sales Compensation, why many organisations struggle to solve the problem of why they cannot get the results they expect from their salespeople, and the strategies that can help.
Listen to the interview with David Johnston
There are many key elements which must be integrated to develop a sustained advantage over the competition.
The good news is that once you have successfully achieved this alignment and the right sales compensation programs are in place, not only do you perform better and succeed more often, but it is very difficult for your competitors to emulate.
Our guest today is David Johnston. Dave is President of Sales Resource Group Inc. He has a broad, international consulting background and offers experience, active participation and a Sales Resource Group approach to consulting with clients. David has over 25 years experience consulting for organizations in diverse fields, such as broadcast and print media, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, information technology, retail, manufacturing and financial services.
