New Training Partner for Connect Yorkshire

In 2017, we will work in partnership with Connect Yorkshire, planning and delivering the sales training programme for the organisation’s members providing support for sustainable, commercial growth 


Connect Yorkshire is a not-for-profit organisation, which has supported business growth in Yorkshire for more than 15 years. Its Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) provide time and expertise to support growing businesses and nurture emerging talent, helping companies prosper, creating jobs and opportunities across the Yorkshire region.  

“It’s an enormous privilege to be working with Connect Yorkshire and so many fantastic entrepreneurial organisations in the region.  There is a vibrant atmosphere at Connect Yorkshire, where entrepreneurs are hungry for support and actively seek to help each other to resolve issues", Richard Lane, managing partner of durhamlane, said.

As a specialist in business development, the durhamlane team will be delivering various workshops and sessions covering topics such as prospecting new business and developing long-term business relationships. The programme will be available free to Connect Yorkshire’s 270 plus members. Book your seat now!

During this engaging workshop members will be introduced to the unique sales methodology “Selling at a Higher Level”, which has been implemented by the likes of Sage, Xero, HP, British Gas, Aviva, NatWest, and tech giants like HP and Symantec.
