SolarWorld has brought aboard a 25-year sales trainer who has specialized in solar to help installers sell the value proposition of buying SolarWorld solar panels. Among solar manufacturers, Greg Welsh will work exclusively on behalf of SolarWorld.
Welsh is a 34-year veteran of sales, having worked as a sales professional, sales manager, general sales manager, national sales trainer and president and founder of his training company, the Welsh Sales Group. His work has included much experience selling consumer products. Welsh has worked in sales training since 1992.
Welsh estimates he has personally trained in excess of 30,000 professional sellers, primarily in formal classes that he conducted for companies and other organizations. Beginning in 2010, he specialized in solar sales, working for a variety of companies, ranging from national to small regional firms.
Welsh will criss-cross the country offering the two-day trainings at least through 2017. The first three training sites and times are San Diego (Feb. 27-28), Newark, N.J. (the week starting March 13) and Salt Lake City (the week starting April 24). For logistical and pricing details as they become available, please go here.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
