Role-Play Scenarios

The Bayou Sales Challenge is known for its strong connection to the region because of its ties to supportive, well-regarded sponsors, and volunteers.  While preparing students for success in sales or related careers, top-notch coaches bring their star students to compete in our two-day role-play competition.

  • Each university team can bring up to 5 competitors and 2 alternates

  • Eligibility in the role plays will require the following: (1) Full time undergraduate students, (2) Not working 36 or more hours per week in a B-2-B sales position

  • Students compete in a 15-minute role-play (knock at 12 minutes)

  • Team selling role-play competition for the 2 alternates (this is optional, and good for those who are warming up to competition or your sales course role-plays) - school must have a full team before competing in this round

The competition diagram illustrates how each of the five individual role-play rounds work.  (See the team selling section for more information on the team selling round.)
