O2 has unveiled a new UK-based training facility in a bid to aid skills training for sales teams working for the network operator’s fleet of partners.
The O2 Partner Academy wants to provide a comprehensive set sales training courses devised in partnership with sales development consultancy group Space2.
O2 says that the course will cover a number of aspects of the sales process.
“We want to give our key partners the edge in winning and retaining business in this difficult economic climate,” said David Plumb, Head of SME Sales. “Building on the hugely successful internal O2 Sales Academy, the O2 Partner Academy extends our expertise to our partners. We hope that being involved in the Academy will help our partners win profitable new business and ensure they are strong leaders in the market place.
“The training we offer partners has been a key ingredient of O2’s recent success in penetrating the SME market. We have already had some very positive feedback from our partners around the Partner Academy initiative. We are confident that we will continue to attract the best partners in the business through our sustained commitment to improving our partners’ training programmes and facilities.”
