Georgia Southern University to Host Second Annual Regional Sales Competition

Deal or no deal? Georgia Southern University’s College of Business Administration (COBA) will host the second annual Regional Sales Competition Friday, Nov. 16, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Sales Lab, COBA Room 3319A.

The sales competition is open to any current Georgia Southern University student interested in the sales profession. Participants will sign up for 30-minute time slots during which they will role-play a 15-minute sales call. Contestants will be judged on the basic elements of a sales call including opening, approach, needs assessment, presentation and closing. They also need to dress and present themselves in a professional manner. Judges from the University faculty and Statesboro community will select four winners that will represent Georgia Southern in the National Collegiate Sales Competition to be held March 14-15, 2008 in Atlanta.

To register for the competition, participants must pick up an information packet in the Department of Management, Marketing and Logistics, COBA Room 2204. An informational meeting will be held Friday, Nov. 2, at noon in COBA Room 2208. Potential participants do not need to be present at the informational meeting to compete.
