The SAGE Story
After 30 years of selling and leading sales teams, we noticed that as corporate buyers started behaving more like consumers, filtering out interruptive sales people and demanding more choice and less lock-in from their vendors, the way we trained our sales and account teams had failed to evolve with the time.
Not finding a program that was designed for a world where lead generation efforts are data-driven, where customer-facing teams are expected to develop expertise to be able to teach their customers, or where the concept of a one-time sale no longer exists, we decided to create our own.
Today, SAGE Training addresses every skill that a customer-facing professional needs to be able to find new opportunity, convert prospects into happy customers, and grow their customer relationships.
We are a team of sales executives, educators, and entrepreneurs. Over the course of 30 years, we have generated more than $200 million in revenue for the companies we have worked for, and our experience spans nearly every country in Asia across an even broader range of industries.
