Natasza Steven and Jack Biggs, from CU Coventry won two of the four awards at this year’s Scottish Open Sales Competition.
The contest, held at Abertay University in Dundee, saw students from universities across the UK demonstrate and hone their sales skills while receiving feedback from industry experts.
The competition included a series of sales meetings which challenged the students to sell under real life conditions to major players including San Francisco-based software and enterprise firm Salesforce, which sponsored the event, as well as banking giant RBS, IT insights specialist Gartner and the Association of Professional Sales.
A total of four sales and marketing students from CU Coventry entered the two-day competition, with Svetoslav Lichev and Andrei Iordan also taking part.
They were joined by sales and marketing course leader Bentil Oduro and management and leadership lecturer Marion Greenhalgh who also sat on a number of the judging panels.
It is the first time CU Coventry has taken part in the annual contest, organised by Professor Tony Douglas from Edinburgh Napier University and Dr Gary Mulholland from Abertay University.
Natasza and Jack will join other winners from the heat to go head-to-head against the best in Europe at the next round of the competition which will be held at Edinburgh Napier in May.
