Watch: Taking sales as a profession seriously

On June 18, the first sales-focused conference in Trinidad and Tobago--Sales as a Profession (SaaP)--will be hosted at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

The brainchild of industry professionals Jarrod Best-Mitchell and Lyndon Brathwaite, the Sales as a Profession (SaaP) Movement originally started on Instagram.

As it grew in popularity, the duo realised that the need for such an event such could no longer be ignored. Brathwaite noted, “We all know Trinidad’s economy is experiencing one of its toughest times and sales is the lifeblood of any organisation. It became clear to us that organising a conference such as this would be beneficial to sales professionals across a range of industries and the ripple effect of sharing that knowledge would be critical to many organisations’ survival.”


Carded to take place from 9 AM-4 PM, the conference will feature the best local sales practitioners and performers, as well as focus on the techniques and methodologies sales professionals can use in sales.

“It’s very important for us to highlight local industry professionals who are crushing it at sales right here in Trinidad and Tobago as we do have the talent. We’ve already secured several speakers who are eager to share their knowledge. This is going to provide a platform and equally as important, build a network of sales professionals who can share information amongst one another. That’s something that is lacking in the industry today,” said Best-Mitchell.

Registration for the conference will begin in the coming weeks with limited early bird discount tickets available.

Presented by Boss Office Supplies, the Sales as a Profession Conference also has onboard Massy Infocom and event partners Loop TT, Digicel – WiFi and AV Concepts- AV & Sound.
