About Sales Impact Academy

Sales Impact Academy is a major new online educational institution providing a complete live-learning curriculum for B2B go-to-market teams on an annual subscription.

The traditional higher education system has let the world of B2B down, with a complete lack of formal, structured education across the entire industry. This major oversight has led to totally inconsistent core technical skills across every role in go-to-market teams from leadership through to SDRs, AEs, CSMs, marketing and revenue operations.

It’s causing chaos and devastation in the sector with 70-90% failure rates for B2B startups and scaleups. It also creates an impossible educational burden on enterprise companies.

Sales Impact Academy is looking to solve this major problem by bringing together the world’s best talent to teach structured, live online courses with high learning design principles and upskill 100s of millions of go-to-market professionals across the globe.

The teaching roster already features 40+ global experts including Mark Roberge former CRO of Hubspot, Elissa Fink former CMO of Tableau, Sam Nelson head of SDR at Outreach, Greg Holmes former CRO of Zoom, Sarah Brazier of Gong, top Linkedin Sales Voice Kevin Dorsey, Marylou Tyler author of Predictable Revenue and Dan Steinman, Chief Evangelist at Gainsight and author of ‘Customer Success’.
