How to SELL the Design Sprint: Immersive Half-Day Workshop
An exciting new training opportunity from AJ&Smart AJ&Smart have run more than 200 Design Sprints all over the world, and we've taught the Design Sprint to some of the world's best companies, including Slack, Airbnb, Medium, Salesforce, Lyft and many more. Design Sprints are highly profitible, and consultants and designers who are able to run them for clients are setting themselves apart, as well as being able to justify charging significantly more for their services. Now, we know we don't need to convince YOU of the value of the Design Sprint, but a question we get every day from people who can facilitate Design Sprints is 'how do I sell them as a service to companies?', so that's where this training comes in. Come along for an immersive and practical half-day workshop at AJ&Smart, where our Head of New Business, Penny Blackmore, will teach you how to sell the Design Sprint as a service. WHAT IS IT AND WHO IS IT FOR? It's an exclusive, hands-on, half-day sales workshop on the 7th of September, with AJ&Smart's Head of New Business. Penny has sold the Design Sprint to some of the world's leading companies, and in this workshop she'll help you to: Educate your clients on when and why they should engage you for a Sprint Communicate the features and benefits of the Design Sprint One-on-one sales deck coaching Practicing your pitch with feedback Overcoming client objections and common pitfalls in the sales process General sales tips and tricks If you're someone who wants to sell the Sprint as a service and make serious money from it then this is the training for you!
