ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
The Canadian Sales Educators Symposium is a one-of-a-kind experience that brings educators and industry together to exchange ideas on the trends, technology and techniques to enhance sales education.
Our goal is to help post-secondary educators of all experience levels improve their ability to teach sales and deliver strong, relevant, accredited sales curriculum, cultivating a knowledge and respect for the modern craft of professional selling.
This year's theme is SALES REMIX.
Fast forward. Rewind. Erase. Record over. Sales educators are constantly being challenged to adapt, adjust, change, and in some cases, “REMIX” our sales curriculum and methods to meet industry demands, an evolving student body and a changing world. How have you adapted your programs, course content and teaching methods as we return to a new normal? How has industry responded to the new world order – digital by default, global remote workforces, on the road again for conferences, tradeshows and in-person meetings? What have we learned collectively from working through pandemic restrictions that we can leverage to maximize our impact?
What is on your new sales “mix tape”?
tips, tactics and tools.
Every session has a tangible takeaway for participants. From lesson plans to templates, step-by-step guides to 3rd party tools. You will be able to use what you have learned the next day.
with your tribe.
Everyone in attendance will be a passionate advocate of the sales profession in industry or academia. All will be keen to share and exchange ideas to help reinvigorate interest and enthusiasm in sales with institutions and students.
with potential partners.
Whether you arrive with a plan or a new idea takes seed through your Symposium experience, you will be connected with potential partners and suppliers that can help you bring those ideas to fruition.
