Introducing the Global Sales Skills Council.

  • What is the Global Sales Skills Council?

    The GSSC promotes and encourages the highest standards in the education and certification of professional sales people globally. This remit provides employers and individuals with the assurance that, at ESI, they are developing and certifying the skills they need to succeed today.

  • Who is on it?

    The GSSC comprises a diverse panel of senior executives from global organisations including multinational corporations, employers, educational institutions, accelerators and government agencies.

    Our GSSC members represent a range of disciplines – each offering a different perspective on the ESI mission – including C-Level Executives, Sales People, Sales Leadership, Sales Enablement, Talent Management, Learning Technologies & Certification.

  • What does the GSSC do?

    The GSSC offers validation and guidance on ESI’s mission to Professionalise Sales Today. Its remit includes:

    • Validation of the ESI problem statement: sales roles are the hardest for employers to fill globally because there is a worldwide shortage of commercial talent
    • Ensuring that ESI graduates have the skills necessary for employment, career development and to sell consistently at a level of high performance
    • Provision of real-world input to ensure that ESI programmes match the expectations and needs of the industry
    • Guidance of ESI programme and curriculum development
    • Thought leadership on the future of skills, learning and work
    • Validation and assurance of quality and ESI’s standards of excellence
