We began working with Barrett midyear 2009. Our Sales Team was in need of a makeover as our business had grown from Small Business to SME in a very short time. We desperately needed skilled, organized and proactive sales reps to sustain the growth and maintain our position in the market place. For a period of 6 months, Sue Barett became our surrogate Sales Manager and held regular weekly sales meetings which involved coaching, mentoring and up-skilling the sales team to plan ahead and give them the confidence to get out on road where previously they were more in-house order takers rather than field reps. The experience was both challenging and rewarding for the sales team and the process revealed the businesses' strengths and weaknesses which lead to the restructure of the entire business. Barrett's approach is honest and encouraging and it's about seeking out real solutions. There are no false promises or gimmicks on how to be the best but its rather a journey of self discovery supported with common sense sales strategies and plans that work and can be adapted by any sales rep and business. One of the first things that Barrett warned us about was that not all sales reps will last the journey. The process exposed some sales reps that didn't have what it takes and in time they exited the business which made way for more talented sales people. Choosing Barrett was the one of the smartest business decisions we've made. We still work closely with Barrett utilizing their services and tools such as the Psychometric Sales and Leadership testing which I highly recommend to recruit and retain the right people. Sue is a rare and amazing coach, facilitator, mentor and business woman who inspires and challenges everyone she meets to be better sales reps, managers and people.
