Bradley Students Win National Sales Team Competition

March 4, 2020

A group of Bradley University students won the 2020 Redbird National Sales Team Competition (RNSC) in Bloomington, Illinois last week. The Bradley sales team was named the Top Sales Team and Aggie Bielinski was named the Overall Champion. Natalie Konopka also placed in the Top 10. This competition consisted of over 20 teams and 70 students throughout the region.

Brad Eskridge, a Bradley marketing instructor and the sales team coach said, "I'm so incredibly proud of our Sales Team! These ladies put in countless hours practicing as a group, role-playing, and preparing for our practices. Their hard work, positive attitudes, and outstanding abilities have shined. They have once again proven that they are among the elite sales students in the entire country. It's an absolute honor to serve as their coach."

The RNSC is a collegiate sales competition hosted by the Professional Sales Institute at Illinois State University. It serves as a developmental event that provides students the opportunity to demonstrate their selling skills through simulated sales role-plays. Students gain individual feedback from industry experts and can network with sponsoring companies.

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.
