Consisting of The Top One Percent of Professional Speakers Worldwide, The Group Held its 2012 Million Dollar Round Table at NSA's Annual Convention
Online PR News – 25-July-2012 – Fort Worth, TX – The National Speakers Association (NSA), the leading organization for professional speakers, welcomed Jason Forrest, Chief Sales Officer of Forrest Performance Group, into the Million Dollar Speakers Group (MDSG) at its annual convention held July 14-17, 2012 in Indianapolis, IN. Comprised of the top one percent of speakers worldwide, the MDSG includes men and women from various industries who are members of the NSA and earn more than one million dollars in the professional speaking business each year. At 33 years old, Forrest is one of the youngest members to qualify for the MDSG.
The MDSG’s 2012 Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) took place at the NSA’s convention on July 14, 2012. Drawing from the expertise and ideas of the mastermind speakers group, the focus of the MDRT was on learning how to increase business with licensing and partnerships, knowing what works and what doesn’t when it comes to transitioning leadership or selling a business, and knowing how to use technology to make (or save) a business money. Of the 1,100 members that attended the NSA convention, only 39 qualified to be part of the 2012 MDRT. Forrest was among the company of other members including internationally acclaimed speakers Steve Siebold and Jim Doyle, New York Times best selling author Don Yaeger and fellow young newcomer Rory Vaden, author of Taking the Stairs.
“With less than one percent of professional speakers worldwide earning more than one million dollars each year, it’s a tremendous honor to be recognized as a part of the group,” noted Forrest. “The MDSG represents a stellar group of individuals, many whom I’ve respected and admired my whole life, so getting to collaborate with them was a dream come true. I’ve come back from the Round Table inspired to work harder and smarter to achieve bigger and better goals.”

Today he coaches and trains both public and private homebuilding clients throughout the United States and Canada, delivering hundreds of seminars, keynotes and training calls each year.
