Sun Learning Systems, the Middle East’s foremost training company that focuses on Sales with a
distinct emphasis on the Management of Sales and the Management of the Management of Sales – and
what happens after the sale is made.

By introducing “Sales Production Management” throughout your organization Sun Learning Systems
will help you make bigger, better and more profitable sales. More importantly, you will be around for
the long haul by building a strong, loyal customer base.

Stop wasting your training dollars on run-of-the-mill training programs that leave you and your staff to
fall back into the rut a week or two after the “3-day” training course. “The lunch was good though.”
Unfortunately the impact on your organization lasts for about as long as a good meal does.

We are in it for the long haul……ARE YOU?

Company Profile
Essentially we are about you; the customer. We are very much about your needs and requirements
and most importantly, we are about your bottom line.

Sun Learning Systems is about increasing your company’s sales effectiveness and efficiency by giving
you the skills, self and sales management systems and tools to do so.

We do not claim to be at the cutting edge of “high-tech;” do not have an armory of buzz words like
“bullet proof systems” but we are hands-on, practical and operate in the “Real World.” – We get to
know your business and the challenges your people face before we tackle the task of training them.

From About Us
Nigel Fann – CEO and Principal Trainer
Nigel has been involved in sales, customer service and management training for the past twenty three
years. During this time He has developed an in-depth understanding of different organizational
cultures, their developmental needs and a feeling for people, especially sales people. In this niche
market, he has no peers.

From Consultants
Nigel has been involved in sales and customer service and management training for the past twenty
years. During this time he has developed an in-depth understanding of what works and what does not
work, especially when it comes to training sales people.

His first efforts at training were for his own staff at an animal feed manufacturing company in South
Africa. He had a sales force of about ninety people who had a good technical knowledge of the
products but little interpersonal or sales skills. When he could not find a suitable training company to
do the work, he set about learning the business of training and doing it himself.
In 1987 Nigel joined a training consultancy with the understanding that if he was to have a positive
effect on the sales people that he trained, he had to first understand their business. While the
techniques and skills generally remain the same it is “understanding the business” that allows one to
get into the peoples minds and convince them that the techniques will work for them.

Over the next few years he worked with many organisations and those that allowed him to first get to
know their business, generally had success and those that did not, got a fleeting “feel good” sensation.
Two of the successes where with the Premier Milling Group, a large milling company and SA Vision
Care, the local distributor of Bausch and Lomb optical products.

In 1996, the Professional Sales Association of South Africa recognized Nigel for his contribution to the
development of sales people. Nigel has a very good grasp of business in the Gulf and Middle East and
has the ability to adapt to the different cultures and people in the region. United Arab Shipping
Company with headquarters in Kuwait and branches throughout the Gulf – London, Singapore and New
Jersey, has chosen Nigel to design and implement a certification program for their staff in sales and
customer service over a period of one year. This program has now been extended to include all branch
managers and sales managers.

Nigel holds a BBA in Human Resource Development and an MBA in Sales and Marketing.

Performance Management Solutions

HUMAN RESOURCE CONSULTING AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS

In the rapidly changing world of work, organisations need to take a step back and consider their
Human Capital. The largest investment an organisation makes is in the people they employ and having
the right people, with the right skills, knowledge and behaviour and retaining them is what sets an
organisation apart from its competition.

The four most challenging human resource issues that organisations face in order to optimise their
workforce are retention, development, selection and transition. We offer solutions to assist
organisations with these.

We can assist you in the following areas:

• Development of Personnel policies and a Supervisor's personnel resource manual


• Remuneration systems
• Develop and conduct employee surveys
• Counselling/coaching training
• Development of recruitment/selection programmes
• Development of succession plans
• Develop job specifications and role clarifications
• Develop a competency framework
• Analysis and modification of work behaviour
• Training needs analysis, learning and development
• Job redesign
• Consulting on employee personnel issues – hiring, termination, discipline and performance
evaluation
• Create or update Employee handbooks
• Development of a performance management solution

Human Resource Framework


The above framework illustrates the different aspects in human resource management and how they
interact. We can offer solutions on all these levels to ensure the optimum levels of performance for
your organisation.

Personal Development

Cross-Cultural Communication

CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION

This programme aims at developing awareness between people where a common cultural framework
does not exist. In general, cross cultural training has two parallel strands – cross cultural awareness
training and culture/country specific training.

Cross cultural awareness training deals with the manifestations of culture in the workplace. The main
purpose is to evaluate and constructively tackle the challenges cross cultural differences can bring to
the workplace.

Audience

This programme is aimed at everyone that works in a multi-cultural environment.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

• be aware of their own perceptions and how this may influence their understanding of others.
• know what there own cultural style is.
• understand the patterns of cultural differences and how to use this in becoming aware of
others.
• know how to work towards harmony in the multi-cultural workplace.
• know how to use the benefits of a multi-cultural workplace in a team.
• understand the different attitudes towards different cultures.
• be able to identify different values based on culture.

Topics

• Perceptions
People who share the same cultural behaviours view the world in a similar way and form an
identity group based on these shared perceptions. So, people from one country or culture share
common perceptions about competition, individualism, cooperation, planning and organisation,
and many others. In contrast, another culture may share perceptions that are different. For
example they may emphasize support instead of competition; be group oriented rather than
individually oriented.
• Cultural Style Analysis
People from different cultures have different styles. The ability to use skills that are tuned
appropriately to the cultural values of those from another culture indicates understanding of
cultural differences.
• Six Fundamental Patterns of Cultural Differences
A number of concepts has been identified that can be used to distinguish between cultures.
These include the differences in the usage of kinesics (body movements), proxemics (space
organisation), oculesics (eye movement), haptics (touching behaviour) as well as paralinguistic
concepts, such as accents, intonation, speed of talking etc. Another frequently examined
concept is “thought patterns”. These can be summarised as being logical or pre-logic, inductive
or deductive, abstract or concrete and alphabetic or analphabetic.
• Harmony and Teamwork in the Office
Leadership and teamwork is the key to organisational effectiveness. A particular leadership
style or teamwork process that is effective in one cultural context may not be effective in
another.
• The value of Cultural Diversity
Understanding diversity begins by awareness and the understanding of our own behaviours and
discovering how and perhaps why we behave the way we do. People around us do not respond
to our intentions, they respond to our behaviour. Regardless of our individual values, it is
paramount that co-workers treat each other with respect and integrity.
• Cultural Differences in the Workplace
In this section we look at how the differences discovered so far could add value in the
workplace.
• Different Decision Making Styles
The roles individuals play in decision-making vary widely from culture to culture. For example,
in some countries decision-making are delegated. In others a strong value is placed on holding
decision-making responsibilities to oneself. How people make decisions may be influenced by
their frame of reference.
• Different Attitudes towards Conflict
Some cultures view conflict as a positive thing, while others view it as something to be avoided.

Duration

The workshop runs over two days (14 hours).

Learning Method

Learning is facilitated through a group game, self-awareness exercises and cultural style profiling.

Motivation and Teambuilding

Motivation and Teambuilding

Motivation can be defined as “the willingness to perform.” This does not mean that if your staffs
become motivated that they achieve superhuman feats, or double their sales turnover overnight. Long-
term motivation is the responsibility of the leaders within the organisation. They need to create an
environment that encourages this willingness to perform. We can “sow the seeds”- and give your
management the tools to nurture and help them grow.

Please contact us for an analysis of your motivational needs and we will tailor a specific motivational
program to meet those needs.
Below is an example of a high impact motivational workshop entitled “The Power of Confidence.”

The Power of Confidence

Learning Objectives
To provide the groundwork for a highly motivated and focused team.

Topics

Outline: This motivational workshop could cover five main areas – Please note that most motivational
workshops are specifically designed to suit the organisations needs and it would be presumptuous for
us to be dogmatic about what it should or should not cover.

• Belief in Ourselves. Confident salespeople are more successful. Confidence comes from within.
If we can believe in ourselves and recognize what is limiting this belief we will be able to
overcome it and be more successful.
• Belief in Our Product and Company.
Added to the belief in ourselves we need to have a belief in our company and products. Without
this belief we will lack confidence when we are selling.

• Our Knowledge and Skills. If we do not have the core selling skills and techniques this will also
affect our confidence. So we need to come across as confident in the sales process. These basic
core skills and techniques will give us this confidence.
• Our Attitude. Finally, our attitude is what keeps us going – it is what speaks louder than our
words. It is the “vibe”; either negative or positive that our clients and colleagues can pick up
on.
• The single most important reason why people buy from a particular salesperson is because they
trust that salesperson. We can only win trust if we have confidence and a positive attitude.
Confidence and a positive attitude = Success = MOTIVATION = Confidence and a positive
attitude = Success = MOTIVATION, and so on.

Duration

Duration is entirely dependant on the specific “outcomes” that the organisation would like to achieve.
Other factors to take into consideration would be whether it is an indoor or outdoor activity, or even a
combination of both. Could we posibly incorporate a nightime event and sleep over at a campsite or
hotel. The opportunities are endless and are limited only by time and budget.

Learning Method

Learning is facilitated through activities focussed at various aspects of teamwork.

Privacy Policy

Sun Learning Systems COMPANY WEB SITE PRIVACY POLICY

Sun Learning Systems and its subsidiaries are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.
We've structured our web sites so that, in general, you can visit Sun Learning Systems on the Web
without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Once you choose to provide us
personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be
assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with Sun Learning Systems.
This statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information you provide online
covers the five foundation principles of fair information: Awareness, Choice, Accuracy & Access,
Security, and Oversight.

Awareness

Sun Learning Systems provides this Online Privacy Statement to make you aware of our privacy policy,
practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To
make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage www.sunlearningystems.com, its
subsidiaries' and affiliates' web pages.

What we collect

On some Sun Learning Systems web sites, you can order products or services, make requests, and
register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are name,
contact and billing information, transaction, and credit card information.

In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and
services (including registration), we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your
personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our products, and more detailed
contact preferences. Some electronic newsletters record anonymous data about articles you have
expressed interest in.

Some sunlearningystems.com web pages use cookies, a data analysis technique.

How we use it

Sun Learning Systems uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with
better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to
communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our web sites for
you. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for other
purposes.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide
you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always
give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. We
will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact,
where applicable.

Who we share it with

Sun Learning Systems will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others.
Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you
provide online with other Sun Learning Systems entities and/or business partners who are acting on
our behalf for the uses described in "how we use it". Such Sun Learning Systems entities and/or
business partners, including those in the United Kingdom and/or any other countries, are governed by
our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate
confidentiality agreements.
Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide when you register your
ownership of Sun Learning Systems products.

Children's Privacy Protection

Sun Learning Systems takes special care to protect the privacy needs of children under the age of 13
and encourages parents to be an active participant in their child's online activities and interests. We
abide by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements. The vast majority of Sun
Learning Systems web sites do not target and are not intended for children under the age of 13. Sun
Learning Systems web sites that do not target children will not knowingly collect data from them. If we
discover personal data from a child through an adult oriented site, we will eliminate that data

Choice

Sun Learning Systems will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us
online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a
choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish
to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honour
such requests. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.K.

Your permission is always secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that
are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy. For example, as part of Sun Learning
Systems's commitment to offering you choice, we enable you to make online purchases directly from
us or through our resellers. When you choose our resellers, we inform you that your registration and
shopping basket data is being transferred to the reseller you selected. This notice is important because
when you choose to make online purchases through our resellers, use of your registration and
shopping basket data by the reseller is then governed by their privacy policy. Local country laws and
policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.S.

Accuracy & Access

Sun Learning Systems strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. We will provide
you with access to your information, including making every effort to provide you with online access to
your registration data so that you may view, update or correct your information at the Sun Learning
Systems site where it was submitted. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable
steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections. To access
your personally identifiable information, return to the web page where you originally entered it and
follow the instructions on that web page. Certain areas of Sun Learning Systems's web sites may limit
access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and through providing personally
identifiable data.

links, you will leave the Sun Learning Systems site. Sun Learning Systems has not reviewed all of
these third party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites, their content
or their privacy policy. Thus, Sun Learning Systems does not endorse or make any representations
about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results
that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to
this site, you do so at your own risk.

Security

unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of
information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to
safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or
transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.

How Sun Learning Systems uses cookies

A cookie is a piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree,
then your browser adds the text in a small file. The purpose of a cookie is to help us analyse web
traffic or let us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow a web application to respond to you
as an individual. By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the web
application can tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes. For example, when you visit an
electronic store, a cookie makes it easy to shop by allowing you to drop things into a shopping cart;
the cart itself is not the cookie, the cookie is placed on your hard drive and keeps track of your cart
versus others' in use at the same time

Sun Learning Systems uses traffic log cookies to identify what pages are being used and which ones
aren't. This helps us aggregate and analyse data about web page traffic and make improvements to
sunlearningystems.com web sites to better meet customer needs. In this case, Sun Learning Systems
uses this information only for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the
system. That is the case of many of our support and information-sharing pages and forums. Denial of
a traffic log cookie should not prevent you from using one of these sites.

A few sunlearningystems.com web sites use temporary cookies as part of the customer web navigation
experience, tracking unique IDs for that particular web site session only. Examples are product
registration sites. This cookie, by itself, only tells us that a previous sunlearningystems.com visitor has
returned. If you deny the cookie, you can still use the site anonymously.

Overall, cookies help us give you a better web site to use, by letting us monitor what's working and
what isn't through site traffic analysis. Sun Learning Systems wants to be sure you understand that
accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you,
other than the data you chose to share with us. This practice is strictly enforced. We know that a lot of
people have concerns about cookies, but in talking with many of our customers, we believe that the
benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. We value the relationships we have with our
customers, so we respect these concerns. Sun Learning Systems works to continuously improve the
sunlearningystems.com web experience and personal data privacy policy and practices.

You may set your web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to notify you of
cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely. You can delete the files that contains
cookies; those files are stored as part of your Internet browser.

Dear Nigel,
It was brilliant. It is a definite advantage to know the behavioral style of your fellow colleagues to
understand the way they think etc.

Also your action can be accordingly managed. This as I see it was one of the biggest learning points from
my point of view.

Overall the games and the bonding that came about from the games etc were great. I look forward to having
sessions like these on a periodic basis. This way everybody understands the others viewpoint better and the
company overall gains on account of the oneness in goals envisioned by all.
Thanks & Best Regards

Dear Nigel,

It is always a pleasure to see you. I would never forget my mother, my father and none of my teachers. I still
remember first day I went to school (primary school) the place where I was too much afraid of. I can still
feel her kiss (my teacher) on my face and her happiness when I had done my homework; just I have to close
my eyes for a second…….. I still remember everything and I won’t forget.

After we finished that four days course and we left the class I was very sad, I just wanted to cry like a little
child, tear where in my eyes……

I didn’t just learn sales & real estate profession from you. I learned experience.

This Thursday when I saw you & Colin’s happiness it reminds me my primary school when I had my
homework done.

Times passes & seconds won’t wait for us. And I carry all of my experience and memorial with myself
along with each and every second. You weight too much on this bag at my back.

Always a simple word says most meaningful sentences: Thanks for everything.

Your beloved student,
