Although IES Corporate Membership is a powerful thing for sales leaders and their teams, and your company is encouraged to join, IES membership or lack thereof has no bearing on the award judging.

The IES has a large library of sales tools, videos, presentations and articles produced by some of the top sales training experts in the world. 7×24 access to this library is a benefit to Elite members only.

The IES typically hosts two social and networking programs per year – one in the spring and one during the holiday season. Corporate, Achiever and Elite members are invited to attend at no extra cost.

Every speaker who has ever graced the IES stage has been taped. Members get to watch these videos whenever they want to revisit some of the great lessons that have been shared.

Attend one webinar per month featuring a past IES speaker.

The IES has relationships with the best sales products and service providers in the industry. We offer members access to best of breed service providers such as marketing automation providers, prospecting firms, and training companies at costs they cannot get on their own.
