Pioneer (Genetic Technologies)

Pioneer (Genetic Technologies) is a specialist maize seed production company based in Gisborne.

In 2017 David Forman designed a sales programme for the Pioneer sales team. Following this training, they are now 30% ahead on their results compared to the same time last year, despite it being the wettest year in a decade!

We subsequently delivered a ‘Leader as Coach’ programme for Pioneer’s Key Account Managers and Regional Managers, and they tell us they’ve noticed an increase in skills around coaching within the business – moving from just ‘being available’ to actively applying the coaching models on a day-to-day basis.
