Greer Chamber Program, SSS, hosts Kickoff Event: "Getting Past the Gatekeepers"

July 31, 2007

(GREER, SC) The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce our newest initiative, Sales Strategies for Success (SSS).  SSS will provide an arena for business development professionals to learn how to increase sales within an interactive environment to share best practices, and learn ways to differentiate themselves and network within the Greer community. The events will incorporate a variety of programs such as guest speakers, interactive role play, panel discussions and speed networking.

Kim Niskey of ConnectsU, LLC, chairperson of the Sales Strategies for Success committee, says “This new initiative will help fill a sales best practices void within the Greer area. We have a dedicated and enthusiastic committee with great expertise helping to create this additional Chamber member benefit and are all very excited about this Program that will help businesses to succeed!”

The SSS kickoff event, “Getting Past the Gatekeepers,” sponsored by GreerNow Magazine, will take place on Tuesday, August 28 from 11:30-1:00pm at the Cottages at Brushy Creek in Greer. Join us as we hear from a panel of “gatekeepers” about the “do’s and don’ts” of communicating with those who control access to their decision makers. This “brown bag lunch” event is open to all members of the Greater Greer Chamber and there is no cost to attend.  You can register online at or call the Greer Chamber at (864)877-3131. For more information, please contact Kim Niskey with ConnectsU at or call the Greer Chamber. You don’t want to miss learning the secrets from those responsible for assisting sales executives to the finish line!
