Nothing happens until somebody sells something.

It’s true. Whether you’re persuading someone to hire you, promote you, date you or connect on social media, everyone’s selling. It’s timeless. Ubiquitous. And that’s life.

In business, revenue-generation drives startups as well as established companies. So, want real job security throughout your career? Learn to sell well.

Welcome to the Game Face Sales Academy.

Founder Rob Cornilles has been training executives – from entry-level to seasoned veterans – for nearly 25 years in the industry’s most user- and client-friendly sales methods. While most of the 35,000 executives trained by Game Face were employed at the time, others were looking for a launch pad to a better job. By attending the Academy, job-seekers and career-switchers have gotten a remarkable leg up on the competition, and almost all have parlayed their Game Face training to fruitful jobs in sports, media, professional services, numerous startups and more.

By attending the Sales Academy, you’ll be trained by thought leader Rob Cornilles, the most prolific trainer in the sports industry worldwide. You’ll spend up to 24 hours with Rob, learning the same principles and practices he has given such notable sports brands as the Golden State Warriors, Denver Broncos, New York Mets and Chicago Bulls. Billion dollar corporations – Northwestern Mutual, Comcast and ESCO Corporation, just to name a few – have also turned to Rob for sales guidance.

“There’s no debate. Game Face is the best. Period! The Cardinals brand is too important for us to take a chance on techniques that we can’t feel good about. We have to be properly represented in our community and the industry. We only trust Game Face to teach our people how to sell.”

Dan Farrell, Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing, St. Louis Cardinals


The Sales Academy offers substantive, best-in-class content in an engaging and dynamic setting. (No stuffy lectures or fill-in-the-blank workbooks here.) Game Face has proven with more than 300 professional organizations that adult learning and retention is most effective through live interaction and practice. Our unique workshop environment gives participants real-time feedback that immediately leads to new skills.

Rigorous course material is taken from Game Face’s proprietary “Seven Skills to a Successful Sale” and includes other Game Face principles like the Revenue Tree and Result-Centered Selling.

The Sales Academy uses today's intriguing sports world as the laboratory for discussion and sales demonstration. However, Academy attendees will be taught a transferrable, industry-agnostic sales approach that can be applied to any work situation or pursuit.


I attended the Academy to learn skills that would get me to the front of the hiring line. It not only worked — landing me dream jobs with the Dolphins, Rams and now BYU Athletics — but Academy training has guided my career in ways I never could have imagined.

Matt Jarvis, BYU Athletics

I was referred to the good people at Game Face in 2002 by a SVP of an NBA team. I can say with absolute conviction that Game Face has delivered one of the greatest returns on any investment I have ever made in my life. Game Face can definitely make your dreams a reality.

Bret Seberhagen, Broker,
Berkshire Hathaway

Rob lives his life to a standard rarely seen in business. Academy attendees will gain business and sales skills that will raise them above the competition. Like hundreds of others, I attest that this was better than a college degree in preparing me for a successful career.
