The content for 3M’s UK sales conference next month will be designed and delivered by Mission Excellence and follows on from a number of successful interventions which Mission Excellence has provided for 3M. Lynne Chidgey, Head of Sales & Marketing Effectiveness, comments: “It was important for us to work with a credible organisation who we could feel confident would focus on our business objectives and provide us with a bespoke team development programme which aligned itself with our organisational move to a more customer-centric approach. Mission Excellence’s reputation within 3M is extremely positive and we’re certain that our sales people will find the conference both inspiring and engaging”. Within the first day, Mission Excellence will deliver a Mission Analysis programme focusing on upskilling sales managers with both planning and analysis tools. The second day will see Mission Excellence working alongside the entire sales population in order to educate employees on the attitudes and skills required to execute the plan and move towards the customer-centric model that the business wants to achieve. A bespoke team development seminar will be delivered by the Mission Excellence team focusing on key issues including planning, and intelligence capture and dissemination. A number of team exercises will take place and will concentrate on developing a customer-centric solution to a complex problem, interspersed with timeout sessions where the learning outcomes will be contextualised. Justin Hughes, Managing Director of Mission Excellence explains: “We are incredibly excited to be working alongside 3M again, and are confident that we can deliver an engaging development programme which aligns with 3M’s business objectives and will empower sustainable change towards a customer-centric approach”. The sales conference, which takes place on the 16th and 17th May in Birmingham is extremely important for 3M as it will act as a catalyst for the hugely successful UK arm of the company to transform its business model in order to reflect the realities of how a 21st Century business needs to operate. -Ends- Notes to Editors: Mission Excellence is a team of former Red Arrows, fighter pilots and training experts who now specialise in the development of outstanding leadership, teamwork and execution skills for corporate teams across a broad spectrum of sectors.
