That is why I am so thankful I attended Barb Girson’s presentation. Her fun and easygoing style, along with the action-packed content inspired me to step up my sales strategies. She helped me look at sales from a different angle and gave me ideas to confidently and authentically make those sales contacts. Since her presentation, I have made several follow up contacts that I would not have made before going to her presentation. Her advice is already paying off. I highly recommend her presentations to any entrepreneur who wants to sharpen their selling skills.” Sheri Chaney Jones, President, Measurement Resources Company

On behalf of the Dean Jeff Russell and the faculty of Ashland University’s College of Business and Economics, I want to thank you for the wonderful presentation on “Small Business Sales Tactics” given last Wednesday evening. With classes on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday/Thursday rotation, it always takes a few days to fully assess the impact presenters have on our students.

I am happy to report that the student reaction to your presentation was fantastic. They enjoyed the interactive nature of the discussion and of course they loved hearing about your personal experiences. Several of students commented that hearing your success story gave them additional confidence to start their own businesses after graduation.

Thank you once again for your interest in Ashland University and for providing our students with such a positive role model.” – Daniel W. Sullivan, Ed.D., J.D., Ashland University
