    I used Mervyn and the Cameron Carnegie group to deliver a sales course for my team and was delighted with the feedback I received and importantly the step change in the team’s thinking based on Mervyn’s approach to the event. Mervyn quickly assessed the level of the team and adjusted the content and pitch accordingly which was recognised by the attendees who all felt challenged yet assured throughout. A measure of the output from the event was the positive buzz during the elevator speeches which continued when back in the office environment in the days ahead. I would have no hesitation in using Cameron Carnegie in the future and would recommend Mervyn to enhance personal and team development in any organisation.

    Sales loves Marketing .. True!

  • Over delivering to win new clients!

    We understand that the most important thing to our clients is our ability to deliver. Deliver that Sales Training course, deliver that Sales Audit, reposition and restructure the Sales Team and in the process over deliver on the customers expectation. Not leave a project until there is a clear and transparent change in performance. That’s what builds a reputation and thats what wins repeat business.

  • Projects delivered = Happy Customers!

    Mervyn has brought a high level of engagement, professionalism and support to our business which we have rarely found in any other consultant. From our first meeting and throughout our association he has been extremely supportive, very pro-active and more importantly he has delivered on the goals and objectives of our project.

  • Sell more to your "better" customers!

    Sell more to your “best” customers.

    On a training session last week, a Salesperson was bemoaning to me how they hated dealing with a particular organisation. Not only that, but how he seemed to burn a lot of time on what were frankly “suspects” rather than “prospects”.

  • Selling to the "One legged stool".

    Recently I received a telephone call from an anxious Business Development Manager looking for an introduction to one of my key Contacts in a certain Accountancy practice in Aberdeen. “I’ve been dealing with the same person at xxx for years” he said, “but I’ve just been told they’ve moved on, can you introduce me to X”?
