Rapid Learning Institute’s COO to present at the 2014 Sales Acceleration Summit

Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) announced today that Glenn Eckard, COO and Co-Founder of RLI, was selected to participate in the 2014 Sales Acceleration Summit by InsideSales.com based on his influence as an industry leader in sales and workplace training.

Eckard will present his talk “Small Victories: How to Get More Sales Training Done in Less Time” during the virtual summit on Thursday, March 13, 2014.

When it comes to sales training, Eckard says, “It doesn’t have to be painful.” He argues that, “When learning is delivered in ‘single-concept’ slices, it becomes easier for sales managers to deliver and easier for salespeople to absorb, remember and apply on the job.” Eckard will offer several key principles that will help sales leaders achieve small training victories that eventually add up to a core training competence.

The event will be live from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST; Eckard’s presentation will begin at 5:15 p.m. (Eastern). Attendees can register and attend the event via the virtual event portal.

“Sales acceleration technology is the fastest-growing category in the sales and marketing sector,” InsideSales.com CEO David Elkington said. “We’re thrilled to host this amazing summit featuring the top minds in the sales acceleration space. Tremendous momentum is building, and we’re proud to be involved in this high-growth industry.”

During the summit, over 80 sales experts, authors and business leaders will serve up their secrets in 15 minutes or less to over 20,000 industry professionals. Attendees can view presentations live or watch on-demand sessions in which speakers will present ways to increase revenue, offer strategic and tactical sales expertise, and reveal new sales technologies.

About Rapid Learning Institute
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, leadership and management, human resources, employment law compliance, and workplace safety. RLI’s approach is founded on three core principles: 1) Rapid Learning. Workplace training should be delivered in short bursts – just six to 10 minutes at a time. Today’s multi-tasking workforce has neither the time nor the attention span for traditional lengthy training formats. 2) Single-Concept Learning. People learn best when training is focused on a narrow concept where learning goals are clearly defined. When training is delivered in small packets, the brain can easily absorb, remember and apply what it learns. 3) Research-Based Learning. Training is most powerful when it’s grounded in verifiable research. When learners see training as credible, they’re more likely to translate the learning into on-the-job behavior. RLI’s signature six to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, incorporate these three ideas into unique training programs that get results.

Based in Greater Philadelphia, RLI is an operating division of Business 21 Publishing.
