Participants on GTDC Diploma courses have commented:
"The GTDC Diploma in Distribution Technology Channels is by far the most comprehensive, relevant and tailored training we have deployed to our distribution sales force in EMEA. As a result of passing the Diploma, our Distribution Business Managers have been able to drive a much richer conversation with our distributors about their business model, key financial metrics and the levers to improve our attractiveness as a vendor." Simon Ewington, Vice President - EG Distribution EMEA, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
"In 22 years of working in the IT Channel for both distribution partners & vendors this training is the most relevant and valuable I have ever received. It has allowed me to better understand the complexities of the distribution business model & therefore enabled me to have genuinely meaningful discussions with my partners leading to mutually beneficial outcomes & a better understanding of their decision making." Distribution Business Manager - EG Distribution, Hewlett Packard, Europe, Middle East, and Africa
