Toronto, Ontario, May 16, 2024 — Today, Optimé International is pleased to announce it has been included on Selling Power Top Sales Training Companies 2024 list.

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, “Quality sales training remains paramount to B2B sales success. As the economy continues to struggle with a soft landing, and AI is disrupting the sales landscape, having an effective and forward focused sales organization is critical to accelerate revenue growth. Partnering with the best sales training companies will help ensure your team’s success.”

All companies on the list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions, and their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace. To evaluate applicants for the list, the Selling Power team surveyed and considered feedback from nearly 300 clients of the applicants.

The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:

  1. Depth and breadth of training offered
  2. Innovative offerings (specific training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
  3. Contributions to the sales training market
  4. Strength of client satisfaction and overall client feedback


Selling Power’s Founder & CEO, Gerhard Gschwandtner, stated, “Optimé offers a comprehensive suite of sales training solutions. From coaching-focused leadership development to interactive virtual workspaces, microlearning challenges, deliberate practice sessions, and e-learning resources, each solution is designed to maximize participant engagement and sales skill development. By integrating experiential learning, feedback mechanisms, and real-time performance tracking, the company excels in providing a dynamic and results-driven training experience that empowers sales teams to excel and exceed quota.”

Celebrating the achievement, Optimé CEO, Hugues Gibeault, added, “We are honored to receive such esteemed recognition from Selling Power. This acknowledges our commitment to providing the best sales training solutions for our clients and elevating their sales performance. We take great pride in developing the sales capability of each participant, from the front line to the executive level. We would like to thank our extended team of facilitators, coaches, consultants, client leaders, and training program managers for the outstanding support they provide to our clients.  And of course, without our clients who prioritize investment in their people, we would not be recognized here today.”

Adding to the sentiment, Marty Blake, Chief Operating Officer at Optimé, said, “Selling Power’s recognition is a testament to the Optimé team’s hard work, dedication and our  proven approach and expertise in enhancing sales team performance. We deeply appreciate this endorsement and remain committed to our mission of empowering sales professionals and facilitating greater success for organizations in creating value with their customers.”
