The annual sales kickoff meeting is one of those rare times when the whole sales team is in a room together, so making the most of it is critical. We've got a number of materials for you to make your sales kickoff event the most successful one yet, including:
- 4 Uncommon Ways to Shake Up Your Sales Kickoff: What happens in a sales kickoff sets the tone for the next twelve months, and if you do it right, will positively impact more than just your salesforce. In this post, we review four tips from the road less traveled.
- The Best Sales Kickoff Checklist Out There: We dug around and found a number of must-haves for your next kickoff. Theme matters a great deal, how you present matters a great deal, and knowing that one size does not fit all is key to an event that resonates with your particular sales force.
- Taking Your Sales Kickoff from Blah to Breakthrough: Last month we sat down with Richard Harris, an industry leading sales consultant, and picked his brain for exactly what it is that makes a good sales kickoff. Follow his top tips in the workbook below for a stellar event.
- 19 Sales Kickoff Themes That Actually Work: Sales Kickoff themes help presenters find the center of their message and get teams to find common ground to collaborate. While a lot organizers treat the theme as a gimmicky add-on, a theme can actually be a very powerful tool for retention of information. In this post we cover nineteen of them, so you're bound to find at least one that suits your message.
- Three awesome Prezi Business templates: Lastly, the templates you've all been waiting for. Below we have three sales kickoff templates, the first two are for you to make your own. They contain all the basics, such as a product map, a wins and losses chart, and a section for how you plan to work in the next twelve months. The third is a key takeaways template. As Bill Aston, General Manager of NALA for Cyara told us, "Handing out takeaways after a sales kickoff is much more effective than sharing the whole presentation. Condense your meeting down to three main points max, and make sure you share it with the whole company--not just the sales team."
