Elon Sales Leadership Dinner

The Chandler Family Professional Sales Center hosts an annual dinner to recognize top sales students. The Earl D. Honeycutt, Jr. Sales Leadership Award sponsored by ADP is presented at this event. The award recognizes a senior majoring in marketing or minoring in professional sales who has shown leadership in the sales program, has the potential of impacting an organization and has demonstrated an overall positive attitude in supporting their fellow sales students.


Sales Competitions

Collegiate sales competitions provide an excellent opportunity for students who are interested in pursuing a career in sales to develop their communication and presentation skills in a highly competitive environment. These events also enable students to network with recruiters and peers from across North America. Corporate partners who sponsor these events have the opportunity to find the brightest and best sales talent and contribute to sales education.

Within the competition, students engage in role plays with business executives. The role play is evaluated and scored on various aspects of the sales call, including approach and overall communication effectiveness and the ability to gather information, identify needs, provide information, present solutions, resolve concerns and gain a commitment.

Below is a list of competitions Elon participates in:

  • International Collegiate Sales Competition
  • RBI National Sales Challenge
  • National Collegiate Sales Competition
  • World Collegiate Sales Open
