About Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem Consulting strives to be Australia’s pre-eminent B2B sales enablement organisation. We work with customers to increase the sales performance of both direct and channel sales teams.

We help SMEs and corporates with their sales, marketing and strategy efforts. A recent focus is B2B social media – which is completely changing the game for B2B sales and marketing professionals. If you have any doubts about social media or just want to make sure you’re making the most of this fast changing space – we can help with expert advice and strategy.

Carpe Diem Specialties

While we work across multiple markets and industries, our unique heritage is the B2B ICT space.

If you are looking for long term and sustainable improvements we offer year long sales enablement programs – which provide much more than “just sales training”. Your Carpe Diem consultant becomes an integral part of your team, empowering every staff member to align marketing with sales, and every other aspect of operations.

We help you create sales processes and content that is relevant to the buyer’s journey – a journey that has changed considerably with the internet and in particular social media.
