Nicholls Sales Lab

These are unique times but we cannot wait to be back in the sales lab!  Hopefully in 2022 we'll be able to welcome you here, shake hands, and ask how your momma an 'dem are doing before getting down to business.

About Our Lab
 
A generous donation in 2004 from Northwestern Mutual allowed Nicholls State University to develop its sales lab and, since, it has undergone two separate facelifts.  Located in Powell Hall (Rm. 209), the sales and interactive training lab is fit with five sales labs, a control room, and teaching studio.
Each lab contains a circular table, three office chairs, a dropped microphone, and wall-mounted video camera.  Computer-based software allows each lab to run simultaneously and record the session.  Students are able to, with a username and password, immediately access their lab sessions from a mobile device or computer via state-of-the-art technology that audio and video records sessions.
In normal times, the interactive training lab allows the instructor to coach students in a more realistic environment.  Students can then take the information and practice it, and prepare via sales training sessions that imitate real-world selling.  
In the future, if you are interested in touring our facility, sponsoring one of our sales labs, or hosting a training session utilizing our technology, please contact Laura Valenti (985.448.4187 / Laura.Valenti@Nicholls.edu).  We welcome you to a socially distant visit!
