Consultative Selling Skills for Technical People
Our sales training has been developed over years into an approach designed for both natural and ‘unnatural’ salespeople. Importantly, we help technical people feel comfortable with the idea of selling, which can make a radical change to the dialogue they have with existing and potential clients.
The Consultative Selling Skills for Technical People course will help participants become more effective in professional sales scenarios. Students will practice different tasks to build their skill sets: from listening techniques and questioning skills to handling objections and closing deals.
Who’s it for?
Anyone responsible for building client relationships, uncovering new opportunities and converting them into fee paying work. Ideally suited for:
Consulting Engineers, Planners, Lawyers, Architects, Environmental Consultants, Cost Consultants
Questas works nationally and internationally with a number of small and large engineering consultancies, property firms and other professional service companies working in the built and natural environment. Thus our courses tend to address common experiences from this sector and the sales process often encountered in 2018.
- Planning business development activity among you and your team
- Understanding the client and how they choose who to work with

This is a practical workshop ideally aimed at groups of between 9 – 15 participants. It is usually a full day involving a mixture of theory and exercises designed to develop consultative selling skills and grow confidence. We run this course both in-house and as a public course (see details below for our next London training event). There is an emphasis on skills practice and we will often use actors to play clients in business development meeting simulations.
The course is designed to resonate with technically minded, natural and ‘unnatural’ salespeople and will develop skills and build sales confidence. Having completed the session, our feedback tells us that participants have more face-to-face business development discussions and those conversations are more effective leading to a greater number of opportunities and improved win-rates. This course imparts tools and resources that results in greater productivity and better sales performance.
