The Support You Need - When You Need It
We provide as much or as little support as you desire, for as long as you need it. We offer a range of support options including marketing, sales, delivery, product customization and on-site consulting.
The support options described below provide a low-cost way to maximize product exposure and sales opportunities.
Options for Participation
Facilitator Certification: As a certified facilitator, you can purchase workbooks directly from Cambridge for use in workshops with your clients. You develop and maintain relationships with you clients. Cambridge provides you with the needed workbooks on a just-in-time basis.
Facilitator Network: As a certified facilitator, you have the option of entering the facilitator network. This option allows you the opportunity to generate revenue by conducting workshops for Cambridge clients.
Product Representation: For those not interested in facilitator certification, this option allows you to offer Cambridge products to your clients. Just as with option one, you build the relationship with your clients. On a just-in-time basis, Cambridge provides both the workbooks and workshop facilitator.
Product Offerings: If you have products or services not currently offered by Cambridge, we can purchase them from you for sale to our clients. In this way, our associates can benefit from the sale of their own products and services as well as ours.
Network Expertise: Each member of the Associate Network brings unique talents with them. As a member of the network, you will have access to this large bank of talent and expertise. This creates the opportunity to create a virtual corporation to meet any need you clients may have.
Sales Support: We can provide everything from answers to your questions over the phone and support on conference calls to on-site visits to prospective client locations.
Workshop Delivery: If for any reason, you are unable to conduct one of our workshops for a client, we can provide a facilitator for you.
Overview Sessions: An effective way to introduce your new products to prospective clients is through a half-day overview session that covers background, content, methodology, hands-on experience with the workshop, etc. At your option, we can conduct one or more of these sessions for you.
Scheduled Product Certification: At least once each year, we offer a combination workshop and train-the-trainer. This allows associates to position themselves to offer new products to their clients and prospective clients.
Opportunity-Driven Certification: If you are unable to attend a product-driven certification session, you can still become certified through this option. When you identify an opportunity for application of one of our training products
with a client organization, you can become certified during and after the pilot workshop conducted for that client.
Collateral Materials: As part of our support services, we provide associates with sample brochures with space for company name and logo. These can be sent to prospective clients along with your standard collateral material.
Product Customization: We can provide any level of product customization required by your clients. Needs such as custom case studies, industry jargon and related skill sets can all be met with minimal turn around time.
On-Site Consulting: We can provide any level of support for specific client requirements in areas such as needs analysis, organization mapping and redesign, skill application measurement and coaching, etc.
