GRC software organisation, Ideagen, has been recognised at a leading sales conference, picking up a Corporate Founder Award for its “bold and important” backing of the Association of Professional Sales (APS).
Ideagen’s Enterprise Software Sales Director, Andrew McIntyre, was on hand to collect the award in front of a packed audience of over 500 attendees at Blackfriars in London, an event that was held between Tuesday, June 7th and Wednesday, June 8th.
Following the event, Andrew said: “This is a fantastic award and we are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by the APS for our efforts in backing the organisation in its earlier years.
“At Ideagen, we are advocates in the promotion and adoption of best practices for the sales industry and positively encourage standards, diversity and education among our own sales professionals across the UK.
“We thank the APS for this recognition, and believe this is the first of many positive aspects of our relationship with them.”
Held in association with Corporate Visions and LinkedIn, the event attracted thought leaders from across the globe, practitioners from some of the world's leading brands, and academics and authors with the most forward thinking opinions.
Andrew Hough, Director and CEO of the Association of Professional Sales, said: “Ideagen took a bold and important step to back the Association of Professional Sales and we are delighted that the company has won our Corporate Founder award. Many congratulations!
“Andrew McIntyre and the Sales team at Ideagen realised that building standards, diversity and education are good for the sales profession and for Ideagen's customers, so we thank them again for their endorsement.
“The APS is a young body full of ideas and enthusiasm and our supporters, like Ideagen, are vital to our growth. We are a not-for-profit organisation, reinvesting in our profession and working towards chartered status. The APS is excited that Ideagen has joined our journey to become the voice of sales and the leading community for sales people.”
