Sales Talk
Final Wednesday of Every Month at 7:30pm

Sales is the lifeblood of any successful organization and everybody sells!  Doctors, Lawyers, Plumbers, Beauticians, Teachers all sell, and the skills needed to sell are critically important for both individual and organizational success.  However, most people haven't ever received any sales training.  Sales talk will feature sales people in all walks of life and across multiple organizations. Each episode features a sales person to share their tips, experiences, advice and career opportunities in sales. In addition, episodes will feature the sales related activities and the innovative things we are working on in the Walter P. Brown, Center for Sales Excellence, in the ISU College of Business.
