Tigo (Pvt) Ltd has introduced a free Diploma in Professional Selling to recognize, educate and award emerging sales and marketing enthusiasts.
Partnering with Sri Lanka’s national body for marketing, SLIM, the company said in a press release this week that the programme, now in its second phase, is being conducted in Galle with possible expansion into education centres islandwide.
The first batch in Colombo is nearing completion of the one year programme which is dedicated to the development of sales and marketing as a profession. According to the press release, the programme is founded on a method of evaluation where the salesman is not only geared on an academic foundation but also on sales performance.
Tigo CEO Dumindra Ratnayaka noted that the Sales Diploma is distinctive as it is the first of its kind offered by a Sri Lankan company. “The programme is geared to teach the science behind selling, the essence of sales and marketing techniques and a street smart practical approach.”
Interested candidates are invited to contact Tigo. The company stated that graduates who complete the programme will be awarded the Diploma at the annual convocation ceremony.
