Furniture World News on

Furnitureland South, the World’s Largest Home Furnishings Showplace, announced its partnership with John Pyke, award-winning speaker, sales executive and author. Pyke has joined forces with the ownership and sales leadership team of Furnitureland South to create an interactive, fifteen-month training program that will focus on enhancing the strengths and skills of each of its 140 Sales & Design Consultants.

This new training program focuses specifically on the strengths of each Sales and Design Consultant and how each person’s unique skill-set can assist them to create an environment of service to Furnitureland South customers, rather than one of selling.  Using profile assessments, key-note speaking presentations, one-on-one planning sessions and small group accelerated skills training, the goal is to lead Furnitureland South’s sales team of 150 individuals in to a dynamic, world-class, enthusiastic and successful force whose core purpose is the service of our valued customers.

“I am very excited about our partnership with John Pyke. John's expertise, sales philosophy, training experience and enthusiasm will be a valuable asset to our ongoing educational program,” says Ken Macdonald, Director of Sales. “We are thrilled to have John as a part of our team for the next fifteen months as we strive to create an environment of unsurpassed excellence in the home furnishings retail market place.”
