T&D’s Apprentices Chloe & Dylan Become Members of the Institute of Sales Professionals

Institute of Sales Professionals

We are thrilled to announce that Thorne & Derrick’s apprentices, Chloe and Dylan, have become official members of the Institute of Sales Professionals (ISP). Currently studying for their Level 4 Sales Executive Apprenticeship, this prestigious membership is a testament to their dedication, hard work, and commitment to their professional development in the field of sales.

Formed by the merger of the Association of Professional Sales and the Institute of Sales Management, ISP is a government-backed professional body representing sales in the UK and around the world. The Institute of Sales Professionals is working towards getting sales recognised as a chartered profession and will continue to lobby the government on issues that concern you and your team’s success.

Chloe and Dylan are an integral part of our sales team, and during their time with us, they have consistently shown a strong passion for sales and a desire to excel in their roles. They have completed various supplier training days, attended industry conferences, and actively sought out learning opportunities to enhance their sales skills.

Becoming members of the ISP is a significant milestone in their careers, as it demonstrates their commitment to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and ethics in sales.

The ISP is a recognised authority in the sales industry, providing its members with access to valuable resources, networking opportunities, and continuous learning initiatives. As members of the ISP, Chloe and Dylan will have the opportunity to further develop their skills through specialised training programs, workshops, and certifications, alongside studying for their Level 4  apprenticeship. They will also have access to a vast network of sales professionals, enabling them to exchange knowledge, share best practices, and establish valuable connections in the industry.

Thorne & Derrick takes immense pride in supporting the professional growth of our employees. We believe that investing in our team members’ development not only benefits them individually but also strengthens our organisation as a whole.

Chloe and Dylan’s membership with the ISP validates our commitment to fostering a culture of continuous learning and excellence. We are confident that their membership will enhance their careers and allow them to make valuable contributions to our sales team and the wider industry. We are excited to see the great things they will achieve as members of the ISP.
