AA-ISP Executive Briefing: Developing the Next Generation of Inside Sales Leaders

Join the Discussion

Inside Sales leaders are invited to join the AA-ISP for our Executive Briefing on March 26th, at 2:00 PM EST to discuss the gap and challenge around developing inside sales leaders. Results from several studies including the AA-ISP Top Challenges Report indicate continued growth in Inside Sales leadership positions from frontline to the executive levels. The briefing will cover research, findings, and discussion surrounding the challenges facing our profession. Topics include The Leadership Gap, Training and Development best practices, AISMâ„¢ Accreditation, and a Q&A session with presenters.

AA-ISP International Expansion

AA-ISP Expanding Reach

The AA-ISP took a large step in our international expansion program during December 2014; the launch of the Irish chapter in Dublin was marked with more than 40 leaders in attendance who heard speakers including Bob Perkins, AA-ISP Founder & Chairman and Erik Hammar, AA-ISP VP International. One of Irelands fast growing industries is inside sales, and in an effort to further advance the profession, the AA-ISP also formed a European Executive Council with 14 Senior Inside Sales Executives, headquartered in Dublin.
