This past Friday, September 17th, Foster Professional Sales Program was invited to speak in front of top sales executives from the area on the topic of Leading Millennials in today’s workforce. As the Assistant Director of The Foster Professional Sales Program, Rick has dedicated the past year to mentoring and shaping the next generation of Sales Leaders in the Pacific Northwest. Accompanying Rick to the event was a panel of three, including Foster Professional Sales Program’s very own: graduate and Account Manager of Microsoft, Jean Blatchford and two current students at the Michael G. Foster School of Business, David Gilluly and Makenzie Kruger.

The session consisted of a brief introduction by Rick on the Millennial generation and was followed by an insightful series of questions asked by Rick to the three panelists. Members of the Seattle Executive Sales Network Group were able to ask the panel follow-up questions, leading to an intriguing conversation amongst the group. Nancy Truitt Pierce, Executive Director of the peer group commented, “I look forward to seeing where the three of you stunning young executives end up.” A true showcase of what the Foster Professional Sales Program has to offer.
