Nexion Holds First-ever Accelerated Sales Forum

February 15, 2018

Participating in the Professional Sales Certification was no walk in the park

Travel agent members will learn proven sales techniques to grow their business


IRVING, TX (February 15, 2018) – Nexion’s commitment to providing its members with award-winning education programs continues with its inaugural Accelerated Sales Forum. Held in Cancun, Mexico at the Grand at Moon Palace from April 25-28, the Accelerated Sales Forum gives attendees an inside look at how to improve and streamline their sales process.


Nexion members will have the opportunity to not only learn professional sales techniques, but will be able to practice their selling skills during the forum. Topics such as sales pre-call planning, client resolution and commitment, and asking the right questions will all be covered. By the end of the Accelerated Sales Forum, participants will have valuable new sales insights and resources which will lead to a better way to close more sales and enhance client loyalty. Suppliers will be on hand as well to share their own sales ideas and give helpful tips to participants about how to sell their products.


Keynote speakers at the Accelerated Sales Forum include Cris De Souza, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nexion, Mike Foster, President of Nexion Canada, and TC Phelps, Business Development and Education Manager at Nexion.


De Souza, Foster and Phelps are graduates of the Professional Sales Certification course. As part of Travel Leaders Group, a number of Nexion sales and business development teams participated in the nine-month Professional Sales Certification course, and achieved professional sales certification. They will be bringing this knowledge to the forum, so Nexion agents can take advantage of this extensive training.


“Participating in the Professional Sales Certification was no walk in the park,” explains De Souza. “Our sales team did this so that we can give Nexion members the sales skills they need. We’re paying this information forward so that the travel professionals that make up Nexion can use it to get greater sales in their own business.”


“In 2018, we are renewing our commitment to member education and providing never-before-seen opportunities,” commented Jackie Friedman, CTC, CTIE, President of Nexion. “The Accelerated Sales Forum represents an opportunity for our members to develop actionable sales skills that can be used as soon as they get home. We are confident that this event will help attendees in their quests to develop lucrative, sustainable businesses.”
