The Chicago Sales Leadership Community was co-founded by DePaul University and SOAR Performance Group to create a forum for best practice sharing and executive networking within the greater Chicago area. The community is a cross industry organization of senior sales leaders focused on building a community within the Chicago market for advancing best practices in sales leadership. It also creates networking and mentoring opportunities for Chicago senior sales executives with DePaul University students participating in the DePaul 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. See the helpful links section for more.
