This is an opportunity to help grow and shape a big-hearted community of people that are interested in becoming better public speakers and communicators.
You’re a sales representative with direct and warm communication skills. While we do not expect you to be a public speaker, we do expect that, as you will represent a speaking and communications company, you are clear and confident in your own communication. Here, you’ll use your skills to respond to and close incoming leads, and thereby contribute to our bold growth objectives. Yes, they’re bold; but they’re achievable - as an ambitious person, you love a good challenge. You’ll be a part of the Heroic Public Speaking Sales Team, where we work closely, support each other, and have each other’s backs.
Within the team, you’ll be responsible for the direct conversion of incoming leads into our trainings, programs, and private coaching opportunities. As such, you will often be the first individual that interested students (clients) meet and identify with as “HPS,” and so you will be seen as a voice of our brand on a daily basis.
Your key responsibility will be to connect with, follow-up with, and convert to enrollment, the people that we can best serve. You might think of yourself as an admissions representative more than a sales representative, as we curate our student cohorts carefully. You will be able to walk that fine line between representing the core values that we, as a relationship-focused business, live by, AND bring a direct communication style, adept at helping individuals make decisions. You will become an expert on the work that we do, and our position in the marketplace as a category of one. You should certainly be comfortable with selling a premium service with corresponding pricing.
Like everyone on the team, no matter what position they hold, you’ll also assist from time to time with events in various operational components—a fantastic opportunity to meet in-person the people you’ve been cultivating relationships with on the phone, and to continue to strengthen their relationship with HPS.
Additionally, you’ll work closely with and provide support to the co-founder of Heroic Public Speaking who also serves as the head of sales.
There is opportunity for travel from time to time with the founders or other faculty members to meet with clients and/or learn more about the work the teachers are doing.
Type of Employment/Benefits
This role is a full-time position. The company offers enrollment in a Platinum health insurance plan through United Health Care and pays 50% of the premiums if you choose to enroll.
Additionally, the company offers a very generous retirement plan in the form of a Defined Benefit Plan and contributes pre-tax dollars equal to at least 9% of your salary each year for full time employees that qualify for the plan. There is also a 401K plan to which you can choose to contribute if you’d like. Your contributions to the 401K can be in the form of a post-tax ROTH 401K or pre-tax Traditional 401K.
Education & Qualifications
We don’t really care where you went to school or what level of education you’ve achieved. We care about who you are now and how you show up in the world now. We have a highly intelligent and sophisticated group of people working together with shared values. We have more staff members with Masters degrees than the typical non-academic organization; however, almost none of these degrees are in the field in which they know work. The point is: how someone did in school or where they went to school or what they studied isn’t the first thing we consider when making our hiring decisions.
We don’t just accept difference: we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our team, our programs, and our community. Heroic Public Speaking is an equal opportunity workplace, and we encourage all qualified candidates to apply.
