Sales Managers Forum Launched - A New Professional Development Club
Nashville, TN – May 20, 2009. The newly formed SALES MANAGERS FORUM, a professional development club exclusively for managers of sales people launched in April. A monthly luncheon meeting is held the last Thursday of each month from 11:30 - 1:00 at Carrabba’s Restaurant next to the Mall at Green Hills.
“The idea for this club was borne out of the need to address the unique issues that managers of sales people have,” says Jon Sturgeon the club host and organizer. Sturgeon says, “There is nothing like this in Nashville and the response has been great. We had barely started to get the word out and had 20 managers attend the first luncheon meeting in April. Our current location can accommodate 70 people.”
At each monthly luncheon meeting attendees have a chance to network with other sales management professionals over lunch and give a brief introduction of themselves and their company. A notable keynote speaker each month presents the topic of the day which is followed with small group table discussions on that topic. A volunteer from each small group then reads the list of best practices gleaned from their group discussion and this information is later distributed.
The Keynote speaker this month (May 28th) is Tom Black, the author of The Boxcar Millionaire. His topic is Sales Reporting: Metrics that matter - How to use them to motivate your team and increase sales. Black is one of Nashville’s top entrepreneurs and sought after keynote speakers with a long history of building great sales organizations.
Each quarter the club will also host an After Hours Mixer at Carrabba’s.
