Gillis, a consulting, training and sales performance partner organization for hoteliers, announced today that its CEO and founder, Tammy Gillis, was selected as a finalist in the Women in Sales Awards "Professional Services Sales" category. The Women in Sales Awards is a prestigious award that celebrates the achievements of women in sales in North America. Finalists will present to a panel of judges on May 12, 2021 and winners will be announced on June 17, 2021.
Under the leadership of Tammy Gillis, Gillis disrupted the traditional hotel sales model in 2013 and launched a full service, turnkey, virtual sales team with employees based across North America.
- Elevating the sales profession – Gillis identified a gap in how salespeople were being onboarded into the industry and felt they were not being set up for success. This resulted in an ongoing high turnover rate in sales. To date, Gillis has trained thousands of sales professionals, hotel owners, general managers, and front-line associates. The company works with major brands across the country.
- Visionary, innovator and professional speaker – As a sales performance expert and professional speaker, Gillis is well known in the hospitality community. Her most requested presentations include Selling Without a Sales Team and Selling to the Modern Buyer. As a visionary, innovator and trainer, she provides a practical and genuine approach. Her presentations and workshops have been well received by the attendees of: Best Western Hotels and Resorts, Choice Hotels International, GBTA, Hotel Association of Canada (HAC), AAHOA and Coast Hotels.
- Disrupted the traditional sales model – Gillis launched its Dynamic Sales Solution (DSS) to provide all hotels with access to sales support regardless of their size or location. This approach allows hotels to sell like a full-service property without having to spend like a full-service property.
Tammy Gillis, CEO, Gillis, said: "I am honored to have been selected as a finalist for this prestigious award, however, our company wouldn't be where it is today without the incredible group of women and men I work with. Our success is because of their dedication and the passion they show our clients and team members every day."
