Tadpole Training helps you sell more!
Most small business owners are amazing at what they do, but have never had any formal training in sales or marketing. If this sounds like you, then you may be experiencing some or all of these challenges:
You are not getting enough leads
The leads you do get, you struggle to convert them to sales
You are discounting too much and cannot justify your prices convincingly
You are experiencing 'feast and famine' where sometimes business is great, then sometimes you can't afford the basics!
Competitors who aren't as good as you seem to be thriving
You are starting to lose enthusiasm for your business because it's just so difficult to make it successful
I help small businesses by providing a range of options:
1. One to one business coaching, focusing on how to increase sales and conversions
2. Bespoke sales training for sales and customer service teams (based on your specific requirements)
3. Open workshops and courses in sales (including basic selling skills, LinkedIn for business, negotiation skills, upselling & cross-selling)
4. Elearning - a range of CPD approved bite-sized courses
I am also an author of a book: Small Business Sales Success - 50 Real life case studies to help you sell more.
I have won or been shortlisted for several awards including:
BESMA finalist (Sales Trainer of the Year) 2016 and 2017
APCTC finalist (trainer of the Year) 2015 and 2016
Enterprise Enfield Start up Business of the Year 2015
Featured Finalist in The Guardian, Start up Business of the year 2015

Tadpole Training Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping people sell more!
So many people have a fear (or at least a nervousness) about selling, believing it is about forcing your opinion on someone else. In fact, the opposite is true - great selling is actually about HELPING people. It's about working out what their problems or goals are and helping them solve their problems or achieve their goals. What could be better?
The bit that gives me the real kick is when you are with a client and they experience that 'lighbulb' moment, where they realise that they actually can do a thing, or that a problem they have been struggling with suddenly vanishes. That sort of thing is priceless and that's what makes me get out of bed in the morning!
What inspired you to start your own business?
I was unemployable!
I worked with my husband for 17 years running a private college. That closed in 2012 when The Home Office took away licences from 500 private colleges because there were so many bogus colleges enrolling foreign students (not us by the way, but it was a political thing). I started to look for work and realised that I no longer fitted in corporate any more, so the obvious thing seemed to be to start out on my own.
I did 7 years with Xerox as well as 17 running the business development side of things at the college, so I knew I could sell. I had also taught for a big chunk of that 17 years so it seemed obvious - become a sales trainer.
Best decision I ever made.
Why should our clients choose you?
What makes me different from other sales trainers and business coaches is that I don't do fluff. Sales training must deliver results and that means money. It could be turnover, but I would prefer it to be profit! Here are some examples of what I have helped some of my clients achieve:
1. Barbara went from £5,000 revenue a month to £12,000 a month after dong 3 short courses with me over a period of 9 months.
2. Richard's company grew its turnover by 48% in six months (a difference of nearly half a million pounds) after strategic sales coaching
3. I did a survey at the end of 2017 and it showed that 75% of clients who worked with me had increased their turnover by at least 25% with a whole 50% saying that they had increased their turnover by more than 50%
Put simply, I don't use gimmicks, I don't use 'secret' systems, I just use simple proven techniques that I have learned in a lifetime of sales. I would invite you to have a chat if you want to find out more. If we are a fit for one another, great! If not, then I may be able to recommend someone else for you to work with.
