Program Year 2020
Selling professionals advance their careers by attending the regular IES sales excellence workshops, which are led by the world’s top sales thought leaders and are held regularly just outside of Washington, DC. Selling professionals develop a significant amount of new business by networking with the region’s top business developers and salespeople at these programs. Attendees are at various stages of their career but all have one thing in common – they want to get better at the art and science of selling!
IES members and program attendees include sales leaders, high-performing sales professionals, and business owners from world-class companies such as Oracle, Cvent, Learning Tree, NetApp, EMC, Amazon Web Services, Discovery, Salesforce.com, New York Life, ADP, Avaya, immixGroup, Carahsoft, Microsoft, and Cisco as well as hundreds of other product, services, and media companies. Members also include service professionals who need to generate revenue, such as accountants, consultants, recruiters, and architects.
The DC-area programs are held either the first or second Friday of the month.
Past speakers can be found on the IES Speaker Bureau page.
