Recent Attendee - Sales University

"By far, the best sales class I have ever attended. Very upbeat, energetic, and productive. There is no better opportunity to have as much fun, be more challenged, learn more about the sales profession. A great two days!! I would recommend this class to anyone involved in sales. Both the outside and inside staff. It is good for the inside staff to see what selling involves. The class gave me more than I expected. This should be a requirement for EVERY salesman!!!!!! GREAT JOB CURT!!"
