"The findings and analysis in the report were invaluable in creating specific and targeted questions in the final interview. The assessment process made a real difference in ensuring we were focussing in on specific sales behaviours and seeking demonstrated capability of those behaviours from the candidate, as opposed to the standard interview questions we were previously using.
Troy Mortleman, Methven
"We used the Diamond to work with the dealer channel to identify sales of higher margin, without sacrificing unit volume. Using this approach, we achieved a 20% increase in average sale value, with a corresponding uptick in unit sales. Overall we almost doubled our sales volume in 18 months with a significant improvement in our profitability."

"There is an extraordinary amount of B2B sales services in the market. It's hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. From my experience, Tony Hall and his team from Beyond 19 set the benchmark in developing B2B business development and sales capability in an organisation. In our business, the Diamond Program has facilitated an effective way to understand our market, clients and the way to deliver value in their eyes. It's also provided an effective tool in developing our people and measuring performance in sales, and sales management.As a result of this investment and in a short period, we're looking at a very good outcome at the end of our Financial Year (17)"

"I have dealt with Beyond 19 for over 10 years and in particular Tony Hall. Tony takes time to understand the business, the markets it operates in and the capability of the people to deliver on the objectives before applying the Beyond 19 principles. He becomes a mentor and confidant to my direct reports which in itself builds trust in him and the journey the business is on. The embedded nature of the relationship is to me the key to the results its drives which have been beyond what was ever expected."
Paul Walker, General Manager Sales, Davey Water Products
"I have had the pleasure of working with Tony and the Beyond19 team on multiple engagements within several organisations. Tony has a great ability to attain deep insight into the business challenges that we were facing and help problem solve some solutions that were tailored to our specific issues. Tony was exceptional in his engagement of my teams and business partners and I was constantly given feedback from my people on how impressed they were with him and his team.
The solutions that the Beyond19 team were able to implement were exceptional. Our learning around the Diamond model has proven invaluable and is used in an ongoing manner by the teams that implemented it. I can not talk highly enough about the amazing support that both Tony and the Beyond19 team provide and the impact that they have had on the business. I would highly recommend them if considering a sales development program for your organisation."
