CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)



Below please find guideline being issued by Government to industry.  According to the HSE, the risk of catching coronavirus in Ireland is still low. 

Employers are being encouraged to conduct a risk assessment and put business continuity plans in place due to Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Contingency planning for business interruptions / Coronavirus
Business continuity planning is important when faced with unforeseen circumstances / unplanned event such as adverse weather conditions, and or public transport disputes which make it difficult for employees to attend for work. The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) is one such example where companies must review their business contingency plan and make a course of action during such crisis. 

Employers can communicate the HSE recommendations to prevent infection spread. These include:

Wash hands properly and regularly

  • After coughing or sneezing
  • after toilet use
  • before eating
  • if in contact with a sick person, especially those with respiratory symptoms

Cover mouth when coughing and sneezing.

  • cover your nose and mouth with disposable tissues
  • if you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your arm or sleeve (not hand)
  • put used tissues into a sealed bin
  • wash your hands

Public health advice posters for COVID-19 are available on Gov.ie for download and display in public offices.

Professional Sales Training

Professional Sales Training

Great to kick off 2020 with the final day of the Hunter Sales Programme subsidised by Design Print and Packaging Skillnet. Congratulations to all who took part in this excellent programme, where Progressive and resilient Irish companies continue to focus on developing best practices and professional approaches across their organisations.

We are looking forward to running this programme again in 2020.  

he Hunter Sales Programme is built around the Track Selling System which addresses the five universal buying decisions which always occur in the following order:

1. The salesperson

2. The company

3. The product

4. The price

5. The time to buy

There is a strong emphasis on the Buyer with particular emphasis on:

· People buy for their reasons, not yours

· People buy from you because you truly believe in what you are selling

· People don’t buy because they understand what you are selling, they buy because they think you understand what they need
