Weekly sales team meetings are valuable. It’s useful to carve out some meeting time to discuss the same basic topics each week. How is your team performing against your target KPIs? How are you responding to common objections? What’s working? What isn’t?
But that can get monotonous. Covering the same things, in the same way, in the same order every week can make your team feel like they’re just going through the motions.
That’s why it’s nice to mix it up.
But where should you begin? We came up with a master list of sales meeting ideas that’ll help inspire you and your team. Great meetings leave everyone feeling energized and ready to tackle the week. Use this list to make your team meetings memorable.

Sample Sales Meeting Ideas
- Icebreakers to know each other better: Teams work together better when they know one another. Ask about pet peeves or fun memories to build team relationships.
- Brainstorm networking groups: Know you need to network more, but not sure where? Have everyone share his or her favorite networking resources.
- Review each other’s follow-up emails: Emails going unanswered? Pull them up and have the team give feedback.
- Create a team goal: Shared goals can be motiving. Set a new one to work on every week or every month.
- Fundraise for a non-profit: Working to help others can be motivating. Set a charity to donate to if goals are met.
- Review each other’s prospecting emails: Not getting leads from emails? Try a team review to tweak your email template to perfection.
- Brainstorm blog post topics: Content can be a great source of leads. Come up with 15-25 topics to share with your marketing department.
- Take 15 minutes to come up with referral sources: Referrals have a higher conversion rate than cold calling. Have everyone spend time assembling a referral source list. Come up with a plan of attack.
- Send out an agenda: Meetings with agendas go easier because everyone knows what to expect.
- Don’t allow phones or laptops: Prevent distractions by banning phones or laptops, and allowing notepads only. Record the call and have it transcribed using a service like Rev.com so no one has to worry about taking notes.
