It is turning out to be only good for a beginner . I have been expecting a better quality stuff for advance training considering my own 20+ years experience in sales.

This is a great course for anyone looking to get into sales or enhance their sales experience. The instructor is wonderful and engaging. Exceeded my expectations, I highly recommend.
