Description

The 3 SEMESTER 1-YEAR CERTIFIED CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL™ PROGRAM curriculum provides in-depth coaching, instruction, and accountability improving results and increasing wins.  Company Leaders and Capture Managers rely more than ever upon timely, relevant, and accurate customer intelligence to successfully plan, shape and win opportunities. BD professionals are tasked with gathering quality Customer Human Intelligence (HUMINT®) to create opportunities, develop new and existing customer business, competitor and solution intelligence. Quality intelligence is dependent on improving win rates, reducing bid and proposal spend and improving decision-making as a whole. Top customer engagement professionals are always looking for ways to improve their skills and win rates. How would you rate your customer intimacy across all your customers and prospects, including new prospects?

THE 3 KEY FACTORS FOR YOUR SUCCESS

To become an MBDi Customer Engagement Professional™ you must apply the methodology, techniques, and mindset. In over 40 years of working with business development and other professionals, we have found a few things that separate those that apply HUMINT gathering techniques and those that don’t. Some received excellent “training” but never applied it. They lacked accountability, failed to invest the hours to apply what they learned or lacked a coach vested in their success. To ensure your success, we use a proprietary development method which provides you with the greatest chance of success:

1. COACHING – Your Coach will provide guidance and individual coaching to help you overcome your challenges.

2. INSTRUCTION – Live and virtual workshops, self-study components and on-demand modules focused on the mindset and behaviors that matter.

3. ACCOUNTABILITY  – We will keep you accountable, focused, and motivated to achieve your professional development and business goals.
