Shari Levitin has been doing this for years and when we found out she had partnered with Lightspeed VT for the virtual training platform, it was a perfect choice for us. Now we can offer online training to all of our associates system wide seven days a week, 24 hours a day.”
Nick Kuhl, Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations for ICE, concurs. “We have sales professionals all over the world, and it is important that the same high-level of training is provided to them regardless of geography. The Levitin approach produces positive, measurable results in all steps of the sales process. Some of our team has had the opportunity to work with Shari Levitin for training in person, and the online course now takes that education to a new level, any time, any place. From what we’ve seen so far, we are anticipating impressive results that will translate into continued positive experiences for the customers our sales professional interact with daily.”
