Media sales experience you can trust to deliver results

We love media and have a genuine passion for helping others to love media sales too. The industry is evolving and changing at an unparalleled speed, this can be challenging for even the most experienced sales team.

At Nua Training, we want to help build your sales team’s capabilities so they can respond to constant change.

Our aim is to make an immediate impact on the way your team sells, to deliver fast and better business results.

Our approach

We get to know your business, understand the issues you face and identify how training or coaching can help. We don’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach to media sales training so we’ll work with you to develop the best solution.

Whether you need to improve your team’s sales pitches, develop new business or close more deals, we can help make it happen.

We believe people learn more when they enjoy what they do, so our sessions are designed to be interactive and fun – but always results driven.

We know media – with significant experience of working in media sales at senior levels, our approach is totally grounded in the ‘real world’.
