For more than a decade and a half, SALES JAM has been bringing the most experienced and least experienced salespeople from the green industry together and accomplishing one thing . . . helping each other achieve their sales goals. Attending SALES JAM 2013 this year is more important than ever because we are at a transitional point in the history of the industry where what we do is no longer as important as WHY we do it. Great companies and individuals that understand WHY their work is important to the health and well-being of others will capture new business opportunities while creating a better world for tomorrow. The successful salesperson today is going to be the one who has accumulated vast experiences and stories on how outdoor living spaces have had a great impact on individuals, families, businesses and communities. The greatest place to learn and share these stories is with like-minded professionals at a SALES JAM, and there is no better place to experience what is possible in outdoor living than at GIBBS GARDENS in ATLANTA!

The two-day Sale Jam is facilitated by the JP Horizons team, and the content will flow from the experiences shared by participants as they:
