Canadian Sales Educators
MINI Symposium 2022
May 31st, 2022
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.
It has been a challenging year since we last met with continued uncertainty due to the pandemic, evolving policies around remote work and learning and faculty contract negotiations. We were not able to put together a large-scale symposium this year, but we recognize the importance of continuing the conversation and remaining connected - so we're doing a MINI-Symposium!
This year's theme is RE-IGNITE SALES. Sales educators are being challenged to develop and deliver sales programming that can ready students for the sales workplace of the future. A future that includes: remote work, reliance on technology, video and phone selling skills vs. in-person, mental health challenges and isolation, diversity challenges and systemic bias.
Join us to talk about this future and share your thoughts, strategies and questions.
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.
A casual and open conversation on an important topic in the sales industry and sales education today.
Each one is designed to give you a take-home tool that you can use as soon as you shut down your video.
