Sales, Training, or Sales Training
Event Source Professionals understands the difference between sales and training meetings, and we place great importance in the creation of environments conducive to each. The ESP staff takes a comprehensive approach to training meetings by combining a classic, educational setting like a respected university with dynamic facilitators and comprehensive materials aimed at attendee retention, resulting in positive ROI.
A Real Sky High Success Story
Not every program is planned under smooth sails. During a national sales meeting, ESP’s client had a sales team who rarely networked. The client also had recently hired a president with a history of “down-sizing” sales organizations. The newly-hired president had a vision of introducing himself during a first-ever combined national sales meeting. They had no meeting space, no agenda and only eight weeks in which to plan the event.
Since we pride ourselves on finding the rarity and producing the unexpected, we were able to leverage our extensive supplier relationships to come up with the perfect venue. The client was able to capitalize on low rates of a corporate training and conference facility at the American Airlines Training & Conference Center which drove the theme: “The Sky’s the Limit” and paved the way for unique opportunities including a networking session held in a flight simulator and a flight-themed team building contest. Knowing that the audience would be skeptical about the incoming president’s plans, ESP enlisted the help of a “virtual space pilot” character who would break into the president’s prepared comments, at pre-scripted intervals, and humorously address fears that the sales team was uncomfortable broaching. In the end it was all well received.
Retreat From The Office
Corporate Retreats allow business executives to remove themselves from the 24/7 accessibility treadmill and allows them to refocus on the Mission Critical shared goals of the company. From selecting a location that surpasses the most intensive media scrutiny to developing thought-provoking team building activities, ESP can design a program that will allow your executives to concentrate on the bigger picture – budget forecasting, productivity, sales and marketing, and research and development plans – without interruptions.
Our goal is to provide a one-stop meeting and event planning resource comprehensive enough to accommodate the scrutinized budgets of our corporate clients, government agencies and associations while also offering a more personal level of service than our clients expect.
To continue to develop our team of professionals with an eye to the future of industry trends and to do so in an environment founded on respect, honesty and integrity. And have a little fun while we're at it.
