Monthly Sales Book Club

Toastmasters at work
This program teaches public speaking. Most students complete this course in about 26 weeks but it can be spread out longer and students are welcome to attend to refresh anytime.

Monthly Sales Forums
In an intimate 8-12 person group, members share their sales stories and challenges. These meetings follow a structured format. Groups like this are more successful if people know each other well so there is an attendance requirement to be a member of one of these forums.

Sales mentoring
Members meet biweekly or monthly with their sales mentor to review their sales pipeline and progress. We attempt to match mentors with the appropriate students (as in someone who has the right background for the particular type of sale)

Marketing Plan reviews
We offer to review the marketing plans/materials of any company in the program.

Sales recruitment
We will have regular job fairs and keep a roster of sales people looking for positions. This service also give comfort to sales people working for startup companies. There is a high likelihood that a salesperson who is good and personable can easily find another position within the group should that need arise.

Resume writing, interview coaching and job search
We assist sales people with finding their next position.

Most of these programs as offered on “work friendly” hours (i.e starting at 6 PM or on weekends)
Cost is $119/month and includes access to all resources and events.
