This award will recognize an individual for the dissemination of quality sales research. According to Neil Rackham, best-selling author and world renowned sales researcher, “the time has come for increased collaboration between sales researchers and practitioners. We have seen them work separately for decades – now we can streamline their work into a cohesive strategy that will benefit universities, sales practitioners and consumers alike.” Recognizing the market’s changing needs, Rackham supports the SEF in awarding those individuals building positive collaborations and providing quality research to the sales industry.

Perhaps you heard someone speak at a conference who shared research findings that resulted in positive outcomes for you or your company. These individuals are helping to bridge the gap between academic sales research and industry implementation. Our goal is to recognize them for their work.

Recipients are chosen by total number of nominations. The designated winner receives $5,000.00 to donate to a sales program (or sales supporting non-profit) of his/her choice. Deadline for submitting a nomination is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
