Andrew Seaton credits the course with helping him to achieve a much higher sales success rate, including helping him win two new contracts worth 10,000.

STP chief executive Peter Wood said: “It was a hard decision to make as all the people on the course moved their businesses forward and it had a really positive impact.

“However the prize had to go to the business that had achieved the most in transforming their sales processes and delivered real improved results, and Andrew is a worthy winner.”
