We are delighted to announce our exciting partnership with the Association of Professional Sales

Our collaboration will provide enhanced benefits to members of both organisations, advancing professional excellence in sales and leadership with the aim to:

  • Connect like-minded people at learning, sharing and networking events – find out more soon!
  • Use new digital technology to transform the membership experience of both organisations
  • Launch collaborative research projects to gain new insights into practice

Commenting on the new partnership, The Institute of Leadership & Management CEO, Phil James, said, “We have a great, natural affinity with the APS. Since its launch in November 2014, the APS has quickly established itself as the leading global professional body for sales with a rapidly growing individual and corporate membership.  As a not-for-profit organisation, the APS has a compelling vision to be the community that advances and promotes excellence in the sales profession”.

Nick Porter, Chair of the APS, said, “We’re delighted to be partnering with The Institute of Leadership & Management, which is home to over 30,000 members around the world. The Institute has recently refreshed and intensified its mission to Inspire Great Leadership – Everywhere. We’re on board with its five stated values: Authenticity, Vision, Achievement, Ownership and Collaboration, and as a registered charity, The Institute of Leadership & Management has a great alignment with the vision, mission and leadership of the APS”.

It is from this base of shared values, ethics and a commitment to expanding diversity that we have launched our new strategic partnership with the Association of Professional Sales.

We're looking forward to developing the partnership in the coming weeks and months, but in the meantime you can learn more about the APS by visiting their website.
