Business development is the #1 need of small business owners. That's why E-Magnify + PowerLink has teamed up with Client Builder Selling to help small business owners take charge of their sales through a new Signature Sales Training Course!

This new sales training program is offered by E-Magnify in conjunction with Larry Lewis and Client Builder Sales & Marketing. The program provides business owners with the ability to hire salespeople with confidence, rapidly get them up to speed and develop effective systems for selling and sales management that improve topline revenue and profitability.

The program consists of four in-person two-hour workshops conducted at the E-Magnify + PowerLink Pittsburgh office (located at C-leveled in Bloomfield) and eight two-hour virtual workshops conducted live over the internet via web conference. The workshops will be conducted over six months (two per month) by Larry Lewis and Wendy Lydon.
