Sales Management Symposium

A master class for sales managers

It may surprise you to know that 50% of sales managers don’t believe they will meet their targets in the next 12 months.

How do we know this? Since Prentice and Partners launched in 2012, we have made it a rule to survey our sales-programs attendees to assess their ambitions and concerns. When it comes to concerns, the 50% figure mentioned above becomes very real.

To address this alarming lack of confidence, Prentice and Partners is launching its Sales Management Symposium, a one-day workshop for sales managers. The Sales Management Symposium will reveal new and innovative best practices in the creation, management and leadership of any sales organisation reliant on the performance and engagement of its most valuable asset … its people.

Tony Prentice, founder of Prentice and Partners who are the new leaders in accelerating management sales effectiveness, will lead a deep dive into the insights and findings that drive ongoing high performance in today’s marketplace.

Who should attend?

  • Managers and leaders of frontline sales people
  • Channel or territory sales managers
  • High level marketers seeking to broaden their sales and leadership skills
  • Executive managers looking to partner more closely with the sales function


This full-day immersion will be an interactive and engaging dialogue that encompasses the core elements for sales organisational success.

Content snapshot: The Sales Management Playbook

Sales strategy and planning.

Techniques and tools to create a strong narrative for the business to follow.

Building a high performing team.

Designing and managing your headcount for optimised outcomes.

Getting closer to clients.

In a digital world how do we rise above the commoditised crowd and assume a long-term partnering approach

Reward and recognition.

The link between engagement and performance cannot be ignored. On average one in four managers do not fully understand their own incentive scheme.

What to expect:

Prentice and Partners will curate the sessions to provide a broad spectrum of industries that will drive the dialogue on the day and allow cross sector pollination of best practice concepts.

This will be a non-lecture format with ample opportunity for discussion and questions throughout the sessions.
