The Vision Council Offers Free On the Road Sales Coach Training
Alexandria, VA (February 17, 2009) Next month, The Vision Council will launch a series of free sales training sessions for members. The quarterly sessions, called On the Road Sales Coach, will be conducted as facilitated conference calls and will cover topics of interest to sales professionals, including how to sustain business growth in a tough economy, cold calling and time management.

The sales training will be led by industry experts and will also serve as an open forum for sales professionals to brainstorm and share best practices. Participants will also be able to submit questions prior to each training session.

The On the Road Sales Coach training is a great way to enrich the skills of sales teams by providing quality content that is up to the minute, said Rene Soltis, director of education and training for The Vision Council. The distance learning format allows companies to control training costs by having their sales team participate in training that is accessible from any geographic region.

The 2009 On the Road Sales Coach sessions include:

Wednesday, March 4: No Such Thing as Business as Usual
Wednesday, June 3: Reinventing the Cold Call
Wednesday, September 2: Time and Territory Management
Wednesday, December 2: Annual Report Cards: Obtaining and Embracing Feedback

The one-hour sessions will be held at 8:00 a.m. EST and 11:00 a.m. EST to allow sales professionals on both the east and west coasts to participate before they begin their day of sales calls. Attendees will be provided with electronic session outlines and summary reports of each call.
