Digital Careers Now, (Eastern Kentucky Coal County Transformation Grant) at Big Sandy Community and Technical College provided a sales training to local businesses and their employees recently on our Prestonsburg campus. 

The training served over 30 attendees who represented several local businesses. The training was centered around the importance of understanding the personality style of each customer type. It was an action packed and very engaging two hours as it challenged attendees to move out of their comfort zone and develop their personal and professional sales pitch. 

“The training was awesome and all of my staff enjoyed it.” Said Stephanie Salyer AVP, Problem Resolution/Training Manager at Citizens Bank of Kentucky.  

Attendees also developed a greater understanding of how they can tailor their sales approach to meet the individual sales needs of their clients. 

“Our employees really enjoyed the training.  We appreciate the fact that we can send our employees to a training that brings life into their jobs, said Angela Hall, Gearheart Communications Human Resources Director.
