The GPS Advantage: Sales Meetings that Grow Sales


GPS is an acknowledged leader in helping clients improve sales force productivity. We create and facilitate sales meetings and workshops designed so that salespeople and sales managers have the skills that will help them sell better!

Whether you require design and execution of an annual / regional sales meeting, a workshop designed to enhance specific selling skills, a critical product presentation, or an interactive breakout, our team will help your sales team shorten the sales cycle by training them to sell more effectively, efficiently and intelligently.

With consultants who have led national sales departments, we know the importance of high energy meetings that involve all participants and produce results…by the end of the meeting and in terms of sales production after the meeting.

Turning Productivity into Profitability

Many companies are challenged to increase sales force productivity, deal with new competitive threats and missed revenue goals that pressure company’s profitability goals. GPS will help your sales team overcome many of the key barriers to sales, improving overall productivity and building profitability.

Our innovative approach with regard to sales meetings will help your team resolve critical sales issues.

More Effective Meetings Mean More Effective Salespeople

Gilman Performance Systems focuses on four key areas critical to the effectiveness of your sales team and to the successful outcome of your sales meeting. These four areas include:

Sales Meeting Design

We design sales meetings with one primary objective: to “raise the bar” in attaining greater sales results. Your sales meetings will be thought-provoking, interactive and challenging. More important, the skills learned in meetings designed by GPS can be put into action immediately!

Sales Meeting Focused Facilitation

GPS can provide your sales meeting with expert facilitators who know how to maintain enthusiasm and participation from your team throughout the meeting. Many of our facilitators come from the world of sales and understand how to keep agendas focused by opening up discussions, and bringing out ideas.

Our facilitator’s key role can help senior sales managers get the most out of their sales meetings by

  • Participating - not up in front just as a "talking head" presenting facts and figures.
  • Assessing talent in the room for future action and development.
  • Focusing on content, not process.
