The Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre will host its annual Schey Sales Symposium on Thurs., Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Baker University Center Ballroom.

Ohio University alumni and community partners are invited to attend the 19th Annual Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre Symposium on Thurs., Nov. 3. This year’s symposium theme is Coaching, Cultivating, and Communicating. Dr. Adam Rapp, intergenerational engagement and time management expert, will present breakthrough insights on achieving stretch goals though effective time management and goal mapping. 

“Our interactive sessions are meant to be applicable for professionals in all industries,” said Dr. Adam Rapp, executive director of the Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre. “I encourage local businesses to join us on campus for a full day of team building and training.”  

Other event speakers include Ohio University’s Executive-in-Residence of Management Tim Reynolds and industry leaders Erin Fischer, owner of the Leadership and Training Studio, Dr. Nick Panagopoulos, professor of Marketing at The University of Alabama, and Tony Nuckolls, vice president of Training and Development at Quicken Loans.

The Schey Sales Symposium will also feature TED style talks by Schey Sales Centre students. Out of nearly 400 undergraduate students, the Schey Sales Centre hosted an internal competition to identify the top three students to present their TED style talks during the conference.

“These talks are impactful, powerful, and relevant,” said Rapp. “Last year we heard about failure, leadership, happiness and Millennials, just to name a few. But don’t take my word for it; I hope you’ll come and see for yourself.”

About the Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre

The Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre was created in 1997 by a group of Ohio University alumni who recognized the need for sales education. It was the first center of its kind. In 2006, the center was renamed the Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre, thanks to the generosity of the Schey family. The University Sales Center Alliance, the Sales Education Foundation, and the National Conference in Sales Management accredit the program. This year, the Ralph and Luci Schey Sales Centre welcomed its largest class of 138 new student hires.
