A 2020 Southern New Hampshire University study found that sales training can deliver a 353% return on investment. This study has been cited numerous times by others who want a quick data point to make the case for investing in sales training. Sadly, these citations lack context, process, or standards, leaving some readers questioning the reliability of the data. So, how do you demonstrate the ROI of sales training in a credible, reliable way? What does ROI mean, and what doesn't it mean? Finally, while there is little you can do to prevent others from taking your ROI out of context, how can you report ROI in such a way that the audience that matters knows the complete story?

This session will describe how you can demonstrate the ROI in sales training. It will feature an ROI study on a sales training program that delivered business value.
