other important attributes that we look for:
o A good sales person won’t be put off by a bad sales day. It helps to be thick
skinned and positive, understanding that we can influence and change the
o You are going to get lots more no’s then yes’s. You have to be patient and put in
the effort to get the right results. You have got to be willing to see out the
business development phase of 12-18 months, which tends to be one of the
toughest parts of the Account Management role.
