Professionalism and sincerity

She recalled one instance when she has been doing her daily follow up with a customer on product inquiries. By holding to her principle of giving customers the best services possible, Chan was able to persuade the customer to accept the offerings she proposed. This same customer then introduced her to his fellow colleagues. With her dedicated and persistent nature, all 25 members of his team also became her customers.

"As a professional salesperson I serve customers from the heart and treat them as close relatives," commented Chan. "My winning formula is: understand the customer's needs, provide professional advice, and build a trusting relationship."

Teamwork: key to success

With more than six years of professional sales experience in the telecommunications industry, Eric Yeung credits teamwork and training to his success. "I value teamwork the most. The time spent discussing and exchanging ideas with colleagues has became an indispensable part of my job," he stressed. "In addition, the professional training programmes offered by Hutchison Telecom have helped us to acquire comprehensive product knowledge and professional sales techniques."

Market sense and sales techniques essential

"The ability to adapt to the ever-changing environment of the telecommunications industry is vital," said Chu. "At Hutchison we are always learning to better cater to the diversifying needs of customers. A positive attitude, high-level of self-control, excellent communications skills and sales techniques are also critical to the success of a salesperson."
