About Barbara Giamanco

Barbara Kelly Giamanco was a successful sales professional in the technology sector and blazed a trail for other women to follow in her footsteps. In addition to launching her own sales consulting firm, she launched an award-winning podcast called, “Conversations with Women in Sales” and interviewed more than 70 women over a two year period. Barb was known globally as a Top Influential Leader, Speaker, Blogger and Expert in Sales, Leadership, Social/Digital Selling and Marketing and Business by Top Sales World, LinkedIn and others.

Tragically, Barb passed away in May, 2020. She was passionate about advocating for supporting women role models in B2B sales. To honor Barb and her efforts, we have created a scholarship to help female sales students with scholarship dollars in order to support their journey toward a sales career.

At least one $1,000.00 scholarship may be offered annually. Scholarships may be used for tuition and books. An independent selection committee will review all applications and have decision making authority on recipients.

  • Thank you for your desire to contribute and help make a difference in the lives of female university sales students.
