Managing Your Teams’ Business Development Skills

When training for business, its important to remember that its not only your own business skills that should be trained, but also the skills of your business teams. Sustaining sales growth over an extended period is not a task that one person can manage, no matter how trained their skills. Good management involves allocating the oversight of growth.

  • Consulting and challenging to identity opportunities and build the need for your services.
  • Effective questioning , listening, relationship building and influencing skills.
  • Presenting compelling solutions.

  • Negotiating mutually beneficial conclusions.

Sometimes, business development is left to the staff members who have a natural ability in this role. But this doesn’t have to be the case, business development skills can be learned by anyone willing to invest the resources to do so.

Indoor Signage Solutions

While there are many types of indoor signage available, including common shop bought signs that are cheap and easy to install. For a high quality finish, its recommended that bespoke signs are used.

A Bespoke signs are designed by providing the core (substrate) and cap (profile) layers separately. By outlining the desired images or text in the adhesive backed profile layer, and peeling away the excess material, bespoke signs create raised letter signage capable of complying with all ADA raised-letter regulations. The raised letter process is also a great way to create multi-coloured signage with your engraving machine.

Bespoke signs created in this way are highly resistant, capable of withstanding scratches, breaks, bending and even UV light. Bespoke signs have a matt or gloss finish depending on the manufacturer and can be finished in a range of colours, usually chosen by the client.

Diamond Cutting – Laser Sawing

Diamond cutting and finishing has seen many advancements over the past 100 years. As technology has developed, so to has the ability for diamonds to be crafted. 

The laser saw is one such technology that revolutionised diamond cutting when it was introduced in the 1930s. Many modern diamonds are cut using laser equipment which is far more accurate and efficient.

How Laser Sawing Works

The stone is mounted onto a dop so it can be directed through a laser beam. The burned graphite from the high-temperature laser leaves a black mark around both sides of the stone where the laser cut through. Because of this, these sides will then need to be polished. In certain cases, more weight is lost than would have been with conventional sawing.

The biggest advantage of laser cutting is the ability to cut with extreme precision. There is also no cutting edge to wear down, and lasers are less likely to warp the diamond because the heat is confined within a narrow space.
