Jason Forrest was recently selected by Global Gurus, one of the world’s leading research organizations, as one of the world’s top 30 sales training professionals for 2019.
The Global Gurus list takes into account accomplishments in the sales space, including impact across multiple channels like books, articles, social media, digital and training. In 2018, Jason and FPG released several new initiatives, including the Executive Playbook, the world’s first assessment-based leadership program of its kind.
Jason was selected from a field of thousands of sales professionals from around the world. That list was then narrowed down to a shortlist of 60, which was then cut in half to create the final list of winners. The winner criteria included public opinion, originality of ideas, the impact of those ideas, and presentation style.
The winning gurus in sales are considered by Global Gurus as the “cream of the crop,” the world’s most influential professional speakers, trainers and consultants in sales and have received more than 500 votes each. All not only apply their own principals to achieve superior results in their organizations, but develop and influence people and organizations throughout the globe.
“It’s a great honor to be named to the list,” Jason said. “I’m with some great company. I want to thank my team for putting our ideas into action, and our great clients, who are always open to innovating, learning and growing alongside of us. We’re just getting started.”
