Where we started.

Where we started.

Up a mountain.

Back in 1996, during a conversation whilst scaling the Eiger, Jonathan and Andrew agreed that something was missing from the sales industry. A one size fits all approach meant businesses were overspending on a workforce which was under-delivering.

There was an opportunity in the market to hire smart. To focus on selecting, hiring and training the best salespeople. Narrowing down the field, to become strategic and efficient when recruiting new talent. A lean and refined way of thinking, not unlike the 80/20 principle also known as Pareto’s Law.

Jonathan and Andrew started applying the Pareto Law to sales recruitment. And after seeing the top 20% of talent, at any level, deliver 80% of the results across the sales industry, Andrew and Jonathan knew they were onto something. 

Where we are now.

Where we are now.

25 years and 30,000 sales graduates later. We've learned a lot. We’ve become Global. We’re the market leader in both sales recruitment and sales training. We’ve trained over 150,000 sales professionals. With offices in Manchester, London and New York, we pride ourselves on their ability to resource sales staff at any level, as well as upskill large, or small sales teams.
