ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

 

 

 

Welcome to the official website of  the Australian Sales & Marketing Institute Incorporated – known as SALES & MARKETING INSTITUTE – a professional non-profit association, which formed in 1994 as the Australian Sales Institute.  The Institute amended its name by member vote in year 2000 to include ‘marketing’. The Institute membership comprises 77% sales management and 20% in marketing management.

The Institute, an incorporated association, has an elected committee with 4,800 plus members across Australia, conducting regular events predominantly in Sydney and Melbourne. The Institute removed membership fees over the years and generates revenue by presenting events, seminars and educational sessions designed to actively press for enhanced sales practice and integrity. The Institute actively supports continually updated sales thinking, education and training, striving consistently for improved process by individuals while encouraging the building of customer focused, solution-based sales relationship approaches. The key objective is building an era of professional and ethical sales practices.

The Institute has lobbied federal and State governments seeking to strengthen recognition for sales activity and participated in both sales and professional association conferences overseas. It has also actively discouraged commission-only sales activity and taken up complaints by consumers about questionable sales practices.
