I was recently invited to attend the annual President's Forum by The Entrepreneurship Institute in Boston. Although originally skeptical, I found the one day event to be extremely informative and enjoyable. Attending the event were roughly 100 CEO's from many successful organizations throughout New England and three guest lecturers that have experienced a significant amount of accomplishment in their careers. The format of the event was open forum and allowed the attendees to discuss challenges and seek advice amongst peers from all industries.

One of the challenges for any sales manager, especially a fairly new manager, is conducting an effective sales meeting while consistently engaging your team. It can be extremely difficult to supply your team with valuable information without erring on the side of boring lectures and mundane sales tips.

Meet The New Boss

This is my favorite advertisement of the year. This is a DowJones advertisement from the Wall Street Journal.

To succeed today, a salesperson needs to close deals - not waste time searching for information or making cold calls."

The ABCs of Noncompetes in Massachusetts

Whether you are a candidate for a sales position, or an employer looking to fill a sales role, you will likely become a party to a noncompetition agreement, or a “non-compete,”- particularly since such employment typically furnishes access to the employer’s intellectual property or trade secrets. In basic terms, a non-compete is a written agreement whereby the employee acknowledges the employer’s intellectual property/trade secrets, and the employee agrees, in return for receiving compensation and other benefits of employment, to refrain from working for the employer’s competitors over a defined period of time, and in a defined geographic region, if the employment relationship ends for any reason.

Sales Manager Forum: Would you rehire after a lay off?

06.08.09   |   Sales Recruiting   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

It was only a few months ago that many of these same companies that I hear are hiring now, laid off huge percentages of their sales force. It got me thinking, what about all those people…would managers hire back Sales Reps that they recently let go??? I interviewed and polled several Sales Managers and Leaders across the country.
