Office Friendly raise the bar with Sales & Marketing Boot Camp

Kicking off a new and invigorated events season, Office Friendly set up at the home of England Football Association, St George’s Park, for the Sales & Marketing Boot Camp, passing on key skills for office supplies resellers and others businesses.


Friday 12th May saw over 80 delegates take part in fitness style training sessions to improve their sales and marketing acumen, analyse skills, set objectives and improve performance.



Sales & Marketing Boot Camp aimed to improve communication between sales teams and marketing strategies of business supplies resellers. In casual setting, the delegates worked in teams to set objectives and improve their knowledge in various sectors.


An interactive session from World Thai Boxing Champion, Rachael MacKenzie, gave insight into time management and confidence. LinkedIn expert, Steve Phillip, shared stories and advice on how to get the most out of the professional platform, and Steve Faulkner wowed delegates with magic skills to demonstrate means of distraction and communication.


Topping the table at Boot Camp was Matt Le Tissier, retired England Footballer turned Sky Sports TV Presenter, who gave a portfolio of stories from his life as a professional footballer and even joined in the friendly game of 5-a-side with attendees.


Katie Metcalfe, Office Friendly’s Marketing Director, says: “Boot Camp was designed to get people involved and show them rather than just telling them how to improve. The delegates have left feeling inspired and the feedback has been superb. Tackling the conventional conference has clearly worked and people are eager to get engaged with us.”


As well as networking opportunities, delegates also took part in a supplier exhibition, tour of St George’s Park, and evening awards ceremony with a sports quiz and entertainment. Football Freestyler Dan Magness amazed the crowd with his performance of football skills and even broke his own “world record of most rope skips while keeping a football in the air in one minute.”


Bookings are open now for Office Friendly’s main event of the year, the Entrepreneur’s Festival. The two-day event at The Belfry Hotel & Resort, Sutton Coldfield, will inspire business owners and more with stories of hard work, perseverance and resourcefulness in building a business.
