Megan Skelly

Enterprise Business Development, D2L

“SalesCamp gave me my confidence back. After spending six months applying for jobs and receiving zero responses, I’d lost faith in myself and my abilities. The SalesCamp program gave me the tools and connections to start applying again, and to my surprise, I received multiple job offers within a month of completion.”

Pushkar Chandiok

Sales Account Manager, SoftChoice

“Prior to the Sales Camp, I wasn’t open to starting from an entry level role. However, after my multiple interactions during the networking sessions, my biggest takeaway was that I needed to just get in and then create my own growth path. In tech sales, you can put your experience to good use and then grow really quickly.”

“SalesCamp was an amazing experience that I will remember as a huge part of my success in the beginning stage of my new career. The support from the cohort was inspiring, since we were all strangers at the start of the week.

Dave Morrison

Dave Morrison

Business Development Specialist, The Sales Factory

“One thing that you won’t ever find in the onboarding process of a company however is how to optimize your approach to interviews for new companies. I see this aspect of the SalesCamp curriculum as one of the most important based on the rarity and value of the information. The program is GOLD!”

Jonathan Kobos

Employment Engagement Strategist, Achievers

“Everyone is there to support you. We all carry this notion that business is selfish, and sales people especially can be slimey. Throughout this journey I’ve been so pleasantly surprised at how generous people, VERY successful people, are with their time and their advice. If you’re prepared and you meet them halfway, all you need is to ask.”

Danny Nguyen headshot

Danny Nguyen

Business Development Representative, Goose Digital

“When I started at Salescamp, I thought I would be cold calling all day and sending bland emails to companies, but you don’t! What I’ve learned is that you help prospects identify the problems they have with their business, and see if your company can help! You’re practically being a hero being assigned to help others in need!”

Belal Al Hassani (Billy)

Business Development Representative, The Sales factory

“The inspiration I found at SalesCamp is that if anyone else is finding success & getting remote positions, then so can I.  Some people even said they received their ‘dream’ positions with their ‘dream’ companies. That is very profound to see because it proves that within Tech Sales, there are life changing opportunities.”

Saif Husain Khan

Business Development Representative, PartnerStack

“Prior to SalesCamp, I was working as a Quality Engineer at a tech company. Although I enjoyed the technical aspect of engineering, I was completely burnt out and had no idea where to take my career. People assume that transitioning your career is impossible and that you can spend years looking for jobs without finding the right place. My SalesCamp experience helped me to push myself and make the change.“

“It was unbelievable meeting with a bunch of other people who were nervous and eager. Everyone had such personal stories and when I looked at my classmates I felt like I was part of something bigger.

Tina Chiang

Accounts Payable Project Specialist, Beanworks by Quadient

“Before SalesCamp, I was a server experiencing listlessness and an eagerness to learn and grow. I wanted to choose a career path where I would still get to interact with people since I am passionate about human interaction. I was surprised to realize that I already had a lot of the soft skills required to succeed in a sales role!“

James Miller

James Miller

Customer Success Manager, ResQ

“The experience at SalesCamp was boundary pushing and took me outside my comfort zone in a lot of ways, but it taught me a lot professionally and personally. I found the inspiration to commit to pivoting out of the hospitality industry for good and to apply to positions I didn’t think I had the skills for before SalesCamp. SalesCamp allowed me to see that the skills I had developed during my hospitality career were transferable to other industries.“

“Thanks to the Palette Skills Team, my cohort, and the employer partners who participated in SalesCamp I was reminded that my experiences are unique and there are things that only I can offer.

Michaela Senkiw

Market Development Representative, TouchBistro

“Before completing SalesCamp, I didn’t realize just how much experience I could bring to a sales role. I was inspired by the other participants in my cohort and their eagerness to transition into tech sales, which gave me an extra push and confidence boost to go after jobs that I otherwise wouldn’t have. I was also inspired by the company partners and the products overall. Tech is a fascinating industry and so are the solutions that some of these different software companies are coming up with.“

“I would have to say the most significant thing I learned was to trust the process, that getting out of my comfort zone would help me the most. A lot of things felt challenging, but I also knew that I had an entire team of fellow SalesCamp colleagues who were there to support my success, give much needed feedback, and encourage me along the way. For anyone who is considering making a career transition, or is simply looking to acquire a new skill, I highly recommend SalesCamp!“

If you’re lost on your journey of finding a career path or maybe you’re looking to learn and make connections in the tech sales industry, then this is for you!”

Meryl Howsam

Commercial Account Manager, Softchoice

“Working in sales was not what I’d pictured. It is, or should be, about building relationships with customers and learning their needs, not about being a telemarketer. The way we were taught to interact with the customers reminded me a lot of the work I did in my previous career as a publicist.”

Business Development Representative, Vidyard

“My experience was more than learning valuable skills, important interviewing techniques, and the amazing opportunity to have conversations with some of Canada’s most innovative tech companies. It was having my drive for success, belief in myself and fire reignited through world-class coaching and support, trusting in the process, being pushed outside of my comfort zone, compacted into the most intense 6 days of my professional life.”

“SalesCamp really pushed me out of my comfort zone. From day one I was encouraged to believe in myself and just go for it! What we learned in theory was always followed by a practical case where we could role play what we learned and build our confidence. Ultimately, in addition to learning the step by step process of consultative selling, I learned that if I push past my own barriers there is real growth and opportunities that follow.”

I have a PhD in Pure Math and I was an academic.
