More than one million salespeople, managers, and leaders have been impacted by The Brooks Group’s principles.

According to President and CEO, Will Brooks, “Our long-term success is due to a strong foundation based on a mix of research and real-world results.”

After remarkable double-digit growth in 2011, the company has plans to grow by 20% in 2012, including an equivalent increase in staff.

The Brooks Group has been recognized for three years as one ofSelling Power magazine’s Top 10 Sales Training firms and for four years as one of Training Industry, Inc.’s Top 20.

“Our team is devoted to remaining at the forefront of the sales training industry by helping companies understand how their buyers want to buy. We rely on the 23 books Bill wrote as a starting point. But we’re always looking forward,” according to Paul Bilodeau, VP of Sales & Marketing.

“We believe there is very little as critical to our clients as a thorough understanding of the world of professional selling. It’s why we devote so many resources to growing our understanding,” said head of Client Services, Michelle Richardson.

The Brooks Group will mark the year with a number of events, including a series of thirty-five minute webinars highlighting the past, present, and future of professional sales and leadership.
