Give prospects a compelling reason to take sales meetings.

Miller Heiman Group’s Securing Appointments programme focuses on securing time with high-level prospects or contacts in client organisations. Instead of reaching out to companies with mass pitches, sellers learn how to target organisations with carefully tailored, consistent messaging that sets them apart from competitors.

Sellers are paired with a Miller Heiman Group expert to put their sales training into action, incorporating the sales prospecting methods and strategies they learn throughout the programme into their current activities. As a result, they’ll generate valuable leads and move sales opportunities through the funnel.
