SESSION #3: MBTI Reimagined

Jeff MacKeigan, Professor and MBTI Certified Practitioner

Michael Ryan, Program Co-ordinator - Corporate Account Management

Centennial College

Could the use of the familiar Myers-Briggs tool help to address some of the challenges we face in sales education, specifically with  international students? A lack of self-awareness, a gap in interpersonal skills, little exposure to interactive learning environments and an empathy/being of service gap are some of the barriers to success. We have integrated MBTI into our Solution Selling courses and have data and real student examples of the positive results.

SESSION #6: Teaching the Tech Stack

Jeremy Legg, Professor & Coordinator

Every business uses some combination of tools to manage the sales process - the tech stack. It can be easy to get caught in the weeds so it's important to have a strategy to address this subject with students. What exactly is a tech stack? What types of tools are included? What do they do? Which matters more:understanding what a certain type of tool in the stack does or the tool itself? We'll look at some real world sales tech stacks and give you some great content to make your students go Wow!
