The Georgia Southern University competition is a developmental event, providing sales students with the opportunity to demonstrate their selling skills through simulated sales role play. It is also a chance for students hone their skills in a regional competition prior to the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC) at Kennesaw State University on March 27–30.

The Hull College of Business team consisted of:

  • Luke Eyrich, Role play
  • Abigail Turner, Role play 
  • Michael Myers, Role play
  • Lauren Goodenough, Sales Boot Camp
  • Caroline Graham, Sales Boot Camp
  • Frank Lawrence, Sales Boot Camp

Only three students from each school can compete in the role-play competition, said professor and team coach William Rhodes. The other students participated in the Sales Boot Camp.  The top three finishers in the competition won prize money, plus clothing from custom suit company Tom James.

The Hull college competed last year at the inaugural GSU event.
