Erie Sales Club To Host Free Sales Workshops

The Erie Sales Club has announced that it will host four free sales workshops in 2011. The workshops will be held Feb. 10, May 11, Aug. 10, and Nov. 9 from 6:00-7:30 PM at the Knowledge Center in Knowledge Park (near the Penn State-Behrend campus).

“We launched the Erie Sales Club in 2010 and had some really good sales-focused conversations at our meetings,” said Jim Roddy, Co-Founder of the Erie Sales Club and President of Jameson Publishing. “So we decided to expand the discussions in 2011 and host workshops that would be open to any sales rep or sales manager in the local area.”

The workshops will include:
• A brief presentation from a local expert offering sales and sales management tips, followed by a Q&A session
• Breaking into small groups to discuss sales challenges
• Attendees take the stage for a 30-second commercial about their company
• Networking with other local sales professionals
• Free refreshments
Advanced registration is not required.

In addition to these Sales Workshops, the Erie Sales Club offers other free resources:
Website: The Erie Sales Club website offers regular advice on Sales and Sales Management.
e-Newsletter: The Erie Sales Club produces a monthly newsletter filled with exclusive Sales Tips. To subscribe to the newsletter, send an email to

The Erie Sales Club is a joint effort of three leading local businesses: Jameson Publishing, Marsha Marsh Real Estate Services, and VertMarkets.
