Iain is an outstanding sales trainer and coach. He has played a crucial role in helping us develop a thoroughly professional and industry leading sales and customer service team. Having worked with us for two years, he has become our trusted advisor on all matters related to our sales strategy. His passion for what he does is infectious and I would highly recommend having a conversation with Iain to see if he could help your company’s sales performance.
Youth Unemployment in Scotland was reported at 20.6% which is neither good for the economy of Scotland, nor the social impact this has on wider society. There is no doubt that the economic climate since 2008 has not helped these numbers, combine this with Graduates leaving University and being forced to take non Graduate jobs, further impacts high unemployment amongst the younger generation.
Being unemployed must be difficult for anyone, however for a 16 – 24 year old, to start adult life with no job, must be especially disheartening.
Please help us, help the next generation of Sales & Marketing Professionals.
There are circa 300,000 businesses in Scotland, albeit if we exclude the single person/small operations who have no desire to grow or employ more people, there are still 100,000 businesses in Scotland who could potentially employ simply one more young person. #GradJobs is a National campaign to encourage every business in Scotland to either hire their first graduate, or hire additional graduates. To encourage every company to get on board we will provide FREE of charge, Sales & Marketing training for every additional Graduate they hire who has been unemployment at any stage in the previous three months.
Scotland has a proud history of inventing, however when it comes to sales we are behind the curve compared to most countries, and we want Scottish businesses to sell more, which means they will employ more people, which in turn will help our country grow and prosper.

What our Clients say
I would gladly recommend Iain & his team to anyone in the sales environment . I had the pleasure of attending one of Klozers sales master classes, after which I found a whole new impetus & drive to take forward on the numerous meetings I have had since . Iain’s wealth of experience in sales tied in with his excellent method of teaching make for a very interesting and insightful experience.
Having done sales for almost 13 years now, I was under the mind set that I knew everything to know and that I was the best I was ever going to be!! Having met and worked with Iain for quite some time, I realised that I actually knew very little (as I was stuck in one single “feature and benefits” mindset) and what I did know, I wasn’t executing it in the best of my ability. I will admit that at first I was a sceptic that it could improve my abilities further, however having tried and tested Iain’s Sales training, I am now unbelievably sure it works, and that I am confident it has given me the ability to better myself, improve my conversion, reduce my sales cycle and further improve my career. I would highly recommend Iain as his teaching methods made it simple to understand and execute.
We use Klozers because the coaches really understand B2B selling and helped us grow our business. Having someone to talk to, who has a different perspective, is invaluable and has helped us focus on sales & selling, despite all the day to day distractions of running a business.
“The Microsoft Sales Academy changed my entire outlook on selling. Since attending class I’m selling more effectively and generating great new business. The approach requires constant reinforcement and our Coach is always extremely helpful in offering guidance and ensures we understand the material. Iain is a fantastic trainer and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”
I have just completed a two day course with Klozers learning all about sales techniques and even more about myself. I have a successful business. I have been a “natural” sales person all my life. I assumed that it was something that you were either born with or not. Well guess what? This stuff can be learned, in a clear and structured way. Its not rocket science but it is a science. Importantly for me, even with years of experience, clear profits and a sales force under my belt, my own skills were significantly improved. I enjoyed all of it but the best bit was the “A ha!” moments when everything became clear and the way forward easy and bright. I think that Iain has a hunch that he is good but actually he is great. I am delighted to recommend Klozers.
Iain’s performance was outstanding. He put body and soul into the sessions, encouraged nothing less from us and inspired us to explore, digest and ultimately understand some challenging sales methods. He reinforced the sessions with extra insights and experience from his own career in selling with passion and sometimes humility which further added to the impact of the subject matter. I highly recommend Iain to anyone who needs coaching in his portfolio of topics. I guarantee you will come out, not just having learnt new things, but also feeling privileged to have met someone who you know you will enjoy meeting again many times!
“As a technical led organization we needed someone to advise us on sales with a different perspective from our own. They drive us in the right direction when needed – which is normally out of our comfort zone, but always well worth it after the fact. ” We are about to recruit another new Account Manager and have already made arrangements for klozers to coach and mentor them. They help us sell the way we want to do business – Trust, Value and Partnerships.”
This course allowed me to work at my own speed on areas that I needed help on. The material was thought provoking, challenging and well structured. Klozers take the core selling skills and branches out into interpersonal skills – everything needed to get you to the top of your game.
“Klozers have been helping to train members of my team who are both relatively new to sales and they have found this very useful and have come away from the training days inspired and much better informed/equipped. In addition, they have been extremely helpful in assisting me with the overall strategy for a certain part of the business. I can honestly say, attention to detail and the vigour provided, goes way beyond the call of duty and I cannot recommend them enough.”
“Iain has helped me; reduce my sales cycle, increase my selling time and set myself aside from the competition by approaching business that works against the tried/tested Features and Benefits system. Would highly recommend to experienced sales professionals who think they can’t improve any further – you can with Iain’s guidance! Brace yourself for some uncomfortable techniques that become instinctive but highly effective!”
Klozers is both an inspiration to new sellers and the ‘Sat Nav’ that experienced sales pro’s need to make the positive adjustments necessary to take them to the next level. Having personally experienced the benefits of Klozers, I would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending them.
Klozers helped our business achieve great results. Their due care and attention to focus not only on the sales process and execution but to also consider and hence incorporate business and marketing strategy into the wider planning helped us to realise our potential as a team and as a business. Personally, Iain was able to coach me very well on what my focus should be as a business manager and I would highly recommend him and his team to other businesses.
What a great sales training! Iain from Klozers is great in teaching you the most up-to-date sales skills while always optimising it to your own business! I am fully satisfied and happy we have chosen Klozers for our company!
I found the course which I attended to be very informative, insightful and well structured. It covered a huge amount of ground but in very digestible pieces which meant that after two days I felt that I was leaving with a considerably greater understanding of selling psychology and a notebook full of helpful techiques. Would highly recommend this sales training to anyoneut highly effective!
