About the Program

WSIA’s Consultative Selling and Negotiations is a customized sales training program for any surplus lines professional who transacts business. The program is offered regionally throughout the year in small group settings, so participants receive individualized instruction. The program is co-produced by Richardson, a leading global sales training and strategy execution company, well-versed in sales training within the surplus lines market.

Consultative Selling and Negotiations is not about hard sales tactics. The curriculum prepares participants to develop relationships and place focus on their customers rather than themselves. In addition to discussing expectations in transactional relationships, the two-day program covers skills of selling and negotiating and insight into individual strategies and habits.
