Since 2016, several partners in business, government and non-profit have come together to deliver UP! Sales Talks – a free speaker series designed to help businesses focus on sales strategies, a challenging area for many.
“Frank and I came up with this idea to have a series of practical and candid speakers sharing their journey of growth and sales strategies used to excel. The biggest challenge for businesses is to keep their sales pipeline full. Frank brings some amazing speakers to the table!” – Teresa Shaver, Executive Director, Business Advisory Centre Durham (BACD)
“UP! Sales Talks is about people sharing their stories – letting you know you’re not alone, and that whatever happens, all those sleepless nights, all of those business frustrations, will lead to success just like it has for our speakers.“ – Frank Auddino, Angel Investor
For the past three years, nine sessions a year with one speaker per session have been held in the Centennial Building at The Town of Whitby.
In 2020, UP! Sales Talks will be presented quarterly, highlighting three speakers from morning until noon at several locations including at the Town of Ajax, the Town of Whitby, and the City of Oshawa.
UP! Sales Talks offers attendees a no-cost opportunity to learn and connect in a casual environment designed to help businesses grow.
The first talk of 2020 will be held on Wednesday, March 4 between 8:00am – 11:30am at the Audley Recreation Centre, 1955 Audley Road, Ajax, ON.
The March event will feature new guest speaker, Ryan Smolkin of Smoke’s Poutinerie in Ajax, and returning by popular demand are UP! Sales All-Stars, Audrey Jamieson of Marketing Kitchen and Carissa & Mark Stewart of WonderMakr.
UP! Sales Talks are not to be missed! Join us for an opportunity to gain valuable information to help you and your business.
