Attend Accelerate Sales Academy and equip yourself with actionable techniques to improve the quality of your sales strategies.

The day kicks off with a keynote presentation by nationally-known sales speaker Keenan of A Sales Guy, Inc. Learn the three reasons why the traditional sales framework is detrimental to success, why the problems sales people face are created themselves and how not to leave money on the table.

Keenan is a wildly passionate, provocative, energetic speaker that captures his audiences’ attention and doesn’t let go until the very last word. Keenan’s insight on sales, life, business, and success excites audiences and leaves them asking for more. Keenan blends data, life experiences, sales knowledge, humor, and stories into entertaining and informative experiences that motivate and inspire audiences to go a little faster, push a little harder, open up a little more, and embrace work with more zest, excitement, and fun.

Following the keynote are dynamic breakout sessions with local leading sales executives on a variety of topics.  Learn actionable techniques to improve the quality and quantity of sales at your company.
