Sales Executives

lets go fishing for more sales!

From as early as 1916 IBM realised the importance of education, and saw mature vocational education as a reasonable recompense for the returned service men, and women, after WWII. It certainly didn’t hurt either that trained specialists delivered more in terms of expertise, customer service, and loyalty. Who would have thought ?

Following on from this lead, and, to a significant extent, the other major computing firms having learnt from the IBM experience and invested heavily in training and development. Thus highly competent specialists from Digital Equipment Corporation, Wang, Xerox, and the also-ran’s populated the major business districts of the world, including Perth, Western Australia, where the mining boom was creating quite a global impact.

Human Resources were thus much more abundant, easier to catch, hunt, and deploy…alas, no more! No more training and development, indeed, no more mid-tier to harvest from, just the imports and the old guard are left.

David Christie & Associates specialized in career Business Development professionals, gaining quite a reputation as the “go to” place for many years, developing close relationships with the white shirt and tie set. To a significant extent the last two “boom’s” dismissed the need for sales people-most of the kit ran out of the door-and then Human Resources became involved (shudders) and the plot was lost.

Nevertheless good sales folk are needed, and though most of the now ultra-conservative business leaders are neither innovative nor brave, the jobs are there; it’s a matter of fishing in rough seas.

Lets get wet.
