Introducing The Vector Firm Sales Academy
The Vector Firm Sales Academy has been created for sales people that work for system integrators and their technology partners. The Academy is a continual sales training program that provides lessons on different topics each month. We understand the hectic schedule of today's salesperson, so we've designed our training to be fully implemented in less than 90 minutes per month.
"My team always finds value - It’s kind of like having a gym membership for sales people."
- Colin DePree, Director of Sales - Pro-Tec Design
Every month brings a new topic. The main event of the month is a live webinar at the same day and time. Even if you miss a webinar, you can access the recording of the live session. Several learning exercises are delivered throughout the rest of the month: an action item for members to implement that will help them turn the ideas into actions, two short videos, a podcast interview with a subject matter expert, and a blog post.
The core of the month's lesson is the webinar, delivered live on the second Friday of the month at two times: 10:00 am and 1:00 pm Eastern. The Webinars provide the teaching of the month, and are delivered by Chris Peterson and a different guest moderator every month.
Our goal is to help our members learn new ideas and put them into action. Therefore, every month we provide an exercise for our members to do that will help them use the concepts we teach in the webinar and make them more effective professionals. The Action Items provide the implementation of the month.
Podcasts & Videos
Our podcast interviews with different sales professionals and our brief videos have become very popular offerings. In the twenty-minute podcasts and three-minute videos, we tell stories and discuss real-world ideas about the month's topic. The Podcasts and Videos provide the learning retention (and entertainment) of the month.
Points & Rewards
As you progress through each lesson plan, you'll earn points and will be able to compete against other members of your team and all Academy members. Our points program gives you rewards and recognition for your participation. The Points & Rewards provide the competition of the month and year.

about Vector Firm Sales Academy
Recently, a prospective client stopped responding to us and went cold. When this happened we wondered what to do next. Well, we went to the notes from the “how to write an email” session. We focused on the techniques you shared and wrote an appropriate email. Within 30 minutes of sending the email the end user was back talking to us and we have now received an order for our services. Many thanks for both the program and the training you provide.

A Note to Sales Leadership & Executive Management
As a manager, you probably recognize the benefits of ongoing training of your salespeople - especially during this everchanging time in which we're living. However, most leaders tell me that they don't have the resources to deliver sales training to their team. That's why we've centered Academy to meet your needs. Every month, you'll receive the following deliverables on a different topic.
- We'll teach relevant content to your team through a webinar.
- We'll reinforce the information with a podcast, two brief videos, and a blog post.
- We'll assign an action item to your team and send you the material and instructions to coach and hold the team accountable.
- You'll have a dashboard that lays out the performance of each of your salespeople, showing you their quiz scores and overall points rewarded for participation.
In summary, we create relevant content, teach and reinforce the content to your team through webinars, podcasts, videos, blog posts, and action items, and we give you the material and coaching to hold your team accountable.
"This topic-driven approach allows our team to receive best in class sales training without occupying too much time away from seeing customers and continuing to evolve as a company."
- Mike McGuirk, Vice President of Sales - CGL Security
