Texas Welcomes The Direct Selling Edge Conference

Direct sales industry attorney Kevin Thompson and sales compensation consultant Jay Leisner invite owners and employees of direct sales companies to attend a two-day direct selling school for direct selling companies, in Fort Worth, TX on October 5 and 6, 2015.

Held since 2011, the Direct Selling Edge Conference has become the best and most informative two-day school for new and young direct sales companies.


Direct sales industry lawyer Kevin Thompson of Thompson Burton and sales compensation consultant Jay Leisner of Sylvina Consulting have teamed together to organize and host the 12th educational event led by the foremost experts in the direct sales fields.


For those who are starting or even just thinking about starting a direct selling company, this is the place to go for pure education to get the knowledge that is needed to be successful.


In a recent interview, direct sales industry attorney Kevin Thompson said, “Attend the event and meet the dream team of professionals teaching about the many elements involved in launching and growing successful direct sales industry companies. Attendees will learn about direct sales compensation, company recruiting, legal compliance, social media for direct selling companies, tax obligations, merchant accounts, direct sales software requirements and much more.”
