The Blugold Sales Challenge kicks off the fall competition season

| Gretchen Hutterli

Members of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugold Sales Team will test their skills at the 17th Annual Blugold Sales Challenge, September 24. The 2018 competition is supported by a gift from Northwestern Mutual. 

The Blugold Sales Challenge is designed to expose UW-Eau Claire students to a sales competition and give them professional feedback on their selling skills. Rank in the competition determines student participation in the UW-Eau Claire Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up and other sales competitions held around the country during the 2018-19 academic year. 

The Blugold Sales Challenge is hosted by the Center for Sales and Sales Management in the Department of Management and Marketing. For more information about the event, contact Jessica Gardner, assistant director and UW-Eau Claire Blugold Sales Team coach.
