What the delegates thought...

I think most of the people in this room left better people than when they walked in, we’ve all learned something, the question is now, when are we going to apply? I’ve already done something, I’ve taken some action.
David Hyner, Professional Speaker, Researcher and Author
Attending the Sales Conversation Conference run by innov8 has completely changed the way I approach my clients and enquiries. I am in far more control of my sales pipeline than previously, and my conversion rate has significantly improved.
Jill Ingham, Business Development Manager, Manchester Business School
Lots of food for thought, loads of action points to go away and achieve, loads of action points for me to think about when I’m sat in the office, I’m sure it will make me a better sales person. If you are thinking of coming on this sales conference, don’t think about it, definitely do it. Exceeded expectations for the day, expectations were quite high to start with but everybody has kept my attention all day and again, really given me something to think about.
Carl Royle, Wizardry Entertainments
"The content was awesome, all of the speakers delivered value that was the key thing from me, it was stuff I could take away and put into action and for me it was worth my time being here, taking the day out of my business and I think that above all else is the key thing, when you invest in yourself and invest in your business, what else can happen but growth and so I would like to say thank you to all the speakers and the event, I would recommend people to attend."
