Meet Amanda, our summer intern!
Hello, everyone! My name is Amanda Saxby and I am the summer intern at the Monroe Chamber of Commerce. I’m going into my senior year this fall at UW-Platteville and I have loved every moment of my schooling. I am majoring in Business Administration and have emphases in Marketing Communication and Professional Sales. I also have a minor in Psychology. I have spent the last year taking classes that are set up as real world sales training. Sales is what I would like to specialize in after graduation to further my career.
What Amanda can do for you!
I have good news for all of you! I will be hosting workshops that will present you with information on professional sales and how to be an advanced sales representative. I will cover information from cold calling to how to work through a sales presentation successfully. Advice on best sales practices, customer relationship management, how to grow your business and much, much more will also be given!
How does it work?
In addition to bringing in my own information, I will be sending out a survey to obtain information from all of you on specific topics you would like me to talk about. The workshops are designed to help you, so I want to meet your needs and tailor them to match the things you are looking for!
Who can attend?
These workshops can be for anyone in your company. My suggestion is for you to send your frontline workers, as many as you would like, to the workshops because they are the employees who encounter customers first. Again, anyone who would like to be up-to-date on best business practices in regards to sales are welcome to attend!
