Asbicon Learning’s Training for Unilever gets Exceptional Feedback

We are proud and pleased to share that the feedback received from Unilever after the first round of training sessions has been exceptional. In one of the sessions, a record has been created where Asbicon Learning has received 5/5 for facilitation. The average feedback is over 96% across all sessions.

This is testament to the hardwork of both our content and delivery teams who add value by bringing customised experiences based on their Consumer Goods & Services focus and years of experience in this sector for the benefit of our clients. In addition, the fact that the Asbicon Learning training programs are supported through technology and tools built-in house makes a big difference to our client’s learning experiences and ability to apply them practically in their day-to-day jobs.

Asbicon’s “GAIN and WIN” makes it simple to Win in Sales & with Shoppers

In our quest to enable the success and ambitions of Consumer Goods professionals and organisations, Asbicon teams put a lot of thought and effort to create a simple and structured methodology – GAIN and WIN.

GAIN and WIN is based on four key pillars:

  1. G – Get New Customers
  2. A – Augment Customer Spend
  3. I – Increase Frequency of Purchase
  4. N – Nurture & Grow Profits

This allows organisations and individuals to build capabilities and provide business solutions as the market needs and complexities evolve. It also allows an organisation to enable its Sales & Shopper Marketing teams with required levels of capabilities based on seniority and roles that they are responsible for. For e.g. Entry level & Junior Sales people can benefit by being proficient in all the capsules of G pillar, while the Senior Sales & Shopper Marketing professionals can drive further value from the capsules of A & I pillars. The N pillar further provides support to the Senior Management.

Asbicon has a lot of further content structured on the GAIN and WIN methodology which can be mapped to individual business needs. To see the GAIN and WIN methodology in detail and to find out how Asbicon can help drive further value through your Sales & Shopper Marketing functions, please visit www.asbicon.com or write to us on info@asbicon.com. We would love to take you through the methodology in detail and explore how it can help you.
