Becoming a member of the IES is a smart move for business-to-business (B2B) sales leaders, sales managers, and high-performers looking to generate more revenue. The IES is also ideal for service professionals, such as accountants, lawyers, and consultants who need to generate revenue for their firm. Many business owners who now wear the title of vice president of sales also are great candidates for IES membership. Plain and simple – if you sell anything for a living, you should join the IES! It’s the only membership organization for people like you.

Description of Benefits

Every IES Achiever member is assigned to a mentor who will be available to give you sales career advice, guidance and input. IES mentors have achieved a high degree of success in their career and look forward to helping other members improve their sales careers.
Sales leaders in the Washington DC region have been attending IES programs for the past 4 years. The programs feature the top sales speakers and authors providing world-class content on sales strategies, tactics, and information. Elite and Achiever level members get to attend all 10-12 programs for free; Closer level members get 50% off the cost of the monthly programs and Influencer level members get to attend for 25% off. They are held on the 3rd or 4th Friday of each month. Doors open at 7:15am for hot breakfast and networking. The actual workshop begins at 8:10am and is given by a published author, speaker or thought leader. The presentations usually last 105 minutes and are followed up by networking.
Members get discounted guest passes for clients and co-workers. Members also get a referral fee (up to $100) for all new members they bring to the IES.
Each month, IES members have an opportunity to learn from an IES thought leader in a casual setting over lunch (additional at-cost charge for lunch may apply).
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. Closer, Achiever and Elite members are invited to attend at no extra cost.
