Foundation Supportworks Hosts Networking Event for Sales Managers

Sales managers from throughout the Foundation Supportworks network attended a networking event July 7-8 in Omaha, Nebraska. Nearly 20 dealer offices were represented, and the event included round table discussions, large group discussions, team building activities, networking opportunities and social interaction. The sales managers helped set the agenda by determining which issues were most common in their day-to-day activities. Some topics discussed included: hiring new sales reps, training new sales reps, keeping sales people motivated, setting goals, running effective meetings, and more. Some of the feedback from those who attended the event included: “The most valuable part of the event was to share what I know with the group and grow and learn from others on what I don’t know.” “The interaction with other managers was great. All of the ideas were great. A lot of the things I learned here can be easily implemented.” “The most valuable part was the interaction with experienced sales manager who have already walked through the growing pains and stages of implementation that I must now go through as I begin to build my sales team.” “Everyone in attendance has dealt with or is dealing with very similar issues. It makes the conversations and solutions much more pertinent.”
