In this week’s Scale Your Sales podcast episode, my guest is Jon Nicholson, the Group Sales Director for Royal Mail & Parcelforce, which is the largest delivery company in the UK, representing over 250,000 business customers with an annual revenue of approximately £4 Billion.
Jon has over 20 years of experience in the industry and has recently presented his research at the Institute of Sales Professionals, Future of Sales event.
In this episode, we talk about his research on the generation game. With four generations of salespeople coexisting in the workforce, Jon sheds light on the challenges and opportunities of navigating their diverse preferences and differences.
