Bradley University Sales Team Places 5th at International Sales Competition

November 20, 2019

The Bradley University Sales Team placed fifth in the role-play portion of the International Collegiate Sales Competition in Orlando, FL this month. The team competed against the top 160 sales students from programs around the globe. Bradley team members include Aggie Bielinski, Andrea Jara Reyes, Brooklynn Schmidgall and Natalie Konopka. They were coached by marketing professor Brad Eskridge.

The International Collegiate Sales Competition provides an opportunity for sales students to compete, network with businesses and working professionals and further develop their selling skills. Over the three-day competition, students competed in sales role-plays (representing a specific company or product) and presented their solutions in an effective and persuasive manner to “complete the sale.”

Coach Eskridge says “Sales Team is, by far, the most rewarding part of my position here at Bradley. I get to work with the hardest working, most dedicated and most talented students on campus every day. Our successes over the past few years are a direct reflection of just that.”

Natalie Konopka placed third overall and Brooklyn Schmidgall made it to the quarterfinal round.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
