CWG sales academy produces fresh graduates

Computer Warehouse Group, a Pan-African Information and Communication Technology company, recently graduated another set of students from its sales academy in Lagos.

The graduating students were of the 2013 first session and they successfully completed six weeks of intensive classroom work, practical training and live project attachments, the firm explained in a statement made available to our correspondent on Sunday.

CWG sales academy formerly called DCC Sales Academy, emanated from DCC Networks, the communication division of Computer Warehouse Group in 2012 with the mission to provide experiential knowledge on selling of IT products and services for fresh and experienced graduates, who wish to hone their selling skills.

However, it became CWG Sales Academy this year in order to provide a holistic sales training in the three disciplines of IT; hardware, software and communication for the students.

The graduation ceremony, according to the firm, was chaired by the Chief Technology Officer, CWG, Mr. James Agada.

Agada, according to the statement, highlighted the importance of sales in business growth.

He said, “The world can only be ruled by people who have the selling skill, because we all have something to offer but your ability to convince others to buy is what makes the difference. Thus, the sales academy creates an avenue to impact its students with the required selling skill that will enable them to excel in their careers.

“Considering the role of ICT in the economy and its growth rate, raising human capital that can sell the value appropriately to the users becomes imperative.

“On the contrary, so many fresh graduates lack the required skill for immediate employment, especially in the IT field. It was on this heel that CWG has established the Sales Academy to bridge the gap,” he said.

He also congratulated the graduates and urged them to give attention to the knowledge they have acquired from the academy as it is not common.

Both the alumni from DCC Sales Academy and the graduating students from CWG Sales Academy were glad to give testimonials of the impact of the academy on their careers.

Sogbamu Segun and Excel Chukwuewube, both alumni of DCC Sales Academy, shared testimonials of the transformation they have experienced in their careers as a result of their participation in the academy while three graduating students; Oluwatobi Ojomo, Olayisade Adekunle and Damilola Oluwatunmise, on behalf of their colleagues, shared testimonials on their experiences at the academy.
