Columbus, OH (February 11, 2021)

As one of the leading educators of working adults in central Ohio, Franklin University is proud to announce the launch of the new Distinguished Sales Speaker Series: “The Art & Science of Professional Selling.”

The new monthly series will kick off at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 24 with guest speaker, Jason Forrest, CEO of Forrest Performance Group.  Using 40 years of learning and experience in sales, Jason will present “The Mindset of a Sales Warrior,” and share transformational strategies and the beliefs of how to become a true sales warrior!

Leashes are limiting beliefs every person experiences. That voice inside your head whispering you can't do something? That's your past programming negatively influencing your results. It's also a false narrative. You were born with every internal tool you need to succeed. It just needs to be continually called out and strengthened. That's when Jason discovered to a powerful realization that the best training isn't just telling people what to do, or how to do it, or even why to do it. It's unleashing their mindset. It's removing those mental chokeholds to help them see the true, fully realized picture of their abilities.

The year-long (virtual for now) series will feature nationally recognized sales experts who hold a passion for promoting sales as a career option for high potential individuals to consider. Topics will cover a myriad of components related to professional selling, sales and negotiations training, and innovative new resources for those individuals and organizations looking to develop economically, enhance the professionalism of the sales force, and provide service to the sales profession.
