About the Chicago Sales Leadership Community

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 are posted in the previous events section.
  • An online discussion group (Sales Leadership Community Insights) is available on LinkedIn.

We look forward to seeing you!
