  • Use your experiences at school, in sports, with volunteer organizations, or jobs you have had to help you make your case!

  • That’s it…. Be creative and professional and deliver it like a champion!




Sales Role-Play Basics

  • Mimics a set of real interactions (phone calls & meetings!)

  • You, representing Crystal Mountain Resort will be calling upon an executive board member of the Michigan Marketing Educators (MME) organization to potentially sell them on having their next meeting at Crystal Mountain Resort. 

  • eRound is an appointment setting phone call made to a WMU student playing the role of the MME rep.

  • The on-campus rounds are face-to-face meetings (role-plays) that mimic a real sales call.

  • Judging will be based on the curriculum distributed by the Sales Faculty at Western Michigan University.
