Greensboro, NC, February 21, 2009 --( Prestigious international sales and sales management training firm, The Brooks Group, recently announced the completion and opening of their Virtual Training Campus and Welcome Center.

The TBG Virtual Training Center — a brainchild of Brooks Group Director of IT, Jared Miles and the firm’s team of veteran National Account Managers — offers comprehensive sales training and sales force development solutions to hundreds of new and existing clients around the globe.

The Virtual Campus marks the foundation of The Brooks Group’s new ‘Traveless Training’ initiative, and is the first of its kind within the Sales and Sales Management Training industry. The Brooks Group has officially opened the center to enrollment from new and existing clients, and is currently slated to host its first round of virtual training seminars in early March.

According to Miles, “The new virtual training facilities will allow us to provide the maximum level of program customization and facilitation to many of our larger clients, and those who may be located outside the United States. By utilizing a virtual platform, we offer our partners state-of-the-art distance education and technology — all without having to sacrifice the personal interaction and hands-on instruction that have always helped to drive home our core concepts in more traditional classroom settings. It literally gives our clients access to the best of both worlds.”

The Brooks Group first devised the idea for a virtual hub after brainstorming ways to accommodate the hectic, transient lifestyle of many sales professionals.

“While working with a major client in the trucking and automotive industry, we realized that the vast majority of companies simply cannot afford to ship their entire sales teams off to trainings for days or weeks at a time,” TBG Director of Sales, Steve Hackett recalled. ”They need training that is thorough and effective, while simultaneously allowing their people to remain active in the field. We developed our Virtual Training curriculum and Center as a direct response to those needs.”

The Training Center is located on its own private island within a virtual platform, and boasts such impressive amenities as multimedia-loaded classrooms and conference halls, along with a fully functional golf course for networking.

“Our goal was to keep the learning experience as authentic as possible. We wanted our trainees to be able to do all of the things that they could do in a traditional classroom, and more,” remarked Director of Operations and Curriculum Development, Michelle Richardson. “The program development engineers provided us with everything a facilitator could want — from digital whiteboards and PowerPoint module projectors, to interactive media lounges where our clients can peruse our learning materials at their leisure. They covered every detail, down to exact replicas of our rugs and founder’s portrait. I daresay our virtual training rooms rival any available in the finest universities.”
