- In an environment where change is on the cards,…the best preparation you can make is probably…to build up your commercial skills,…things like negotiating and understanding finance.…All skills are good, languages, computers,…interpersonal skills, time management, et cetera,…but commercial skills are always very useful…and often neglected by people who aren't directly…in sales and marketing.…Even if you're a technical person…when technical skills are clearly going to be vital,…there's a risk that you might neglect the commercial…side of things.…
And actually, an engineer or an IT person…who also understands costs and customers…is a great combination.…Even technical people need to be able to sell ideas…and changes to customers,…they need to negotiate,…they need to be able to present their ideas to the customer.…So, I would strongly recommend getting some training…in the following four areas.…First, selling and influencing,…the ability to persuade other people to do things.…It's not all about personality, you can learn it.…
