IN THE NEWS- The Sales Leadership Alliance Partners with Junior Achievement and Sets a Joyful Tone for This Holiday Season
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, December 12th, 2013- Last week the Sales Leadership Alliance rang in the holiday season at the Hilton Del Mar. “Although the primary purpose of the event was to gather Sales and Marketing leaders for a festival holiday social, we were delighted to also raise funds for San Diego Junior Achievement”, explains Ken Schmitt, Founder of the Sales Leadership Alliance and the Marketing Committee Chair for Junior Achievement’s San Diego chapter. “Junior Achievement’s goal of providing financial responsibility, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs to San Diego youth is one that we, as Sales Leaders, strongly support”.
While still a relatively new group, the Sales Leadership Alliance has enjoyed 3 years of strong growth across the San Diego and Orange County chapters. “We launched the group in early 2011 with the goal of providing networking opportunities and best in class speakers to the region’s senior sales & marketing leaders. Our membership is comprised of professionals with 10+ years of experience, who possess a deep business acumen and experience managing a team.” says Ken Schmitt. “We have been so fortunate to attract world class speakers such as Don Isley, Sr. Director Marketing USA at WD-40 Company, Bill Hawkins, co-author of “What got you here won’t get you there in Sales”, Jim Trunick Sr. Director, Commercial Leadership Development at Allergan and Jacquie Johnson, V.P. Sales at CND.”
For those interested in joining the SLA, they are currently wrapping up their 2013 membership drive. Beginning January 1st, 2014 annual membership rates will increase. A full list of member benefits is available at https://www.salesmarketingalliance.com/membership/san-diego-county/
