Elevate Your Professional Impact

Pavilion is coming to Chicago with a full day of relationship building, in-depth workshops, and tactical tips that will help you elevate the core competencies needed to achieve your professional potential.

What To Expect

Following years of virtual interactions, we’ll finally reconvene in person to dig into the qualities that set great leaders apart, the frameworks that transform a startup into a unicorn, and the power of building genuine connections where you give in order to get.

Pavilion Executive Members will walk away from an Elevate Roadshow event with actionable advice and a support system that will help you take your career to the next level.

The Science of Sales Inspiration

Session Description:
Is your sales team coin-operated? Yes…if you’re doing it wrong. Building a team that stays, performs their best, and advocates relies on maximizing your team’s intrinsic inspiration. In this session, we’ll get nerdy exploring the six categories of sales inspiration (the P.R.A.I.S.E. model), along with easily actionable (and likely counter-intuitive) ideas to help you maximize each one in your environment.
