The Association of Professional Sales held its first meeting in francophone Africa on 19 June. The inaugural event in Dakar, Senegal, featured a presentation by Emmanuel Delvaux, Global Sales and Marketing Director, Schlumberger. Delvaux, who also doubles as International Development Manager of the APS, discussed “The art of negotiation: what challenges for a win-win approach?”

Meanwhile, in the UK, the APS is going local with the recent announcement of a series of local networks. “We are calling them APS Sales Hubs,” APS founder and C0-CEO Andy Hough told the Journal.

He added: “The true value of belonging to a professional organisation is the people you get to know who share ideas, encourage you in your career, or help you solve problems and face tough challenges. We believe those bonds of friendship and support are best achieved by forming connections in more informal, local settings, so in addition to our existing events and webinars we are launching APS Sales Hubs across the globe.”

Hough invited members to join their local group near Bedfordshire, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Sussex or Yorkshire.
