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.
