Excellent support from Sandler Training

It was the excellent support provided by Sandler Training that persuaded Paul Glynn to invest in the international sales and management franchise in November 2009.

With extensive knowledge in the fields of sales and management, a franchise that would allow him to train and coach other businesses with their sales techniques was ideal. Glynn's background has always been within a sales related role and he has previously worked for established publishers such as Moneyfacts, Newsquest and the Financial Times Group.

"Since taking on the franchise the support I've had from head quarters and fellow franchise owners has been absolutely phenomenal. If I've ever got a problem I know I can call head office straight away. Or if I've got a particular concern then I know exactly which franchise owner to talk to and who would help immediately. Every Sandler franchise owner goes that extra mile to help both their clients and fellow colleagues, it's just the Sandler way," said Glynn.

Fellow franchise owner Andy McCreadie, who operates Sandler Training Devon and Cornwall, is also highly impressed with the support services provided, he said: "The support from the UK and globally is fantastic and this is instilled throughout the organisation."

Since McCreadie launched his franchise four years ago, through a lot of hard work and dedication, his business has increased by nearly 250 per cent between years two and three. In 2007 McCreadie's franchise revenue was £48,000, with a steady increase each year he looks set to achieve £300,000 for 2010. "Of course, achieving a strong revenue stream is a fantastic result but this simply wouldn't be possible without a great supportive network of franchise owners and a great supportive HQ," said McCreadie.
