ATLANTA SALES LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY

The Atlanta Sales Leadership Community was co-founded by Georgia State University and SOAR Performance Group to create a forum for best practice sharing and executive networking within the greater Atlanta area.
  • The community is a cross industry organization of senior sales leaders focused on building a community within the Atlanta market for advancing best practices in sales leadership.
  • It also creates networking and mentoring opportunities for Atlanta senior sales executives with Georgia State University students participating in the Georgia State University Sales Program.
  • The community is led by the advisory board with representatives from companies that represent different industries and go-to-market models.
  • In addition to the breakfast meetings that include panel discussions on sales leadership topics, the community also provides online options for participation.
  • Recordings from the panel discussion will be posted in the previous events section.
  • An online discussion group is available on LinkedIn.
