  • I have used Smith Carey training several times to help the Commercial team .   From junior Commercial Managers to experienced Controllers they have always provided excellent skills and frameworks which we have adapted in day to day work life. Smith Carey were able to bespoke the training to our needs  covering basic selling fundamentals, through to negotiation using real buyers in role plays.  They also developed bespoke sales competencies working with the team .  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others Commercial Director
