Jonathan Barnett Named Top 20 Keynote Speaker
Oxi Fresh’s President Named One of the Top Keynote Speakers in the Franchising Industry
LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, the World’s Greenest Carpet Cleaner®, is proud to announce that its founder, Jonathan Barnett, was named one of the franchise industry’s top twenty keynote speakers by Global Franchise Magazine.
Mr. Barnett has been a speaker at franchising events all over the country, including the Franchise Development Conferences and the IFA National Conferences. According to Mr. Barnett, this was not what he was expecting to be doing when he first founded Oxi Fresh.
“Back in 2006, I didn’t think I’d be speaking to franchisors about Oxi Fresh and our carpet cleaning franchise opportunities. To be honest, back then I was more worried about making sure the carpets got cleaned and the flyers got sent out,” said Mr. Barnett, “But people have found what I’ve learned the hard way useful – and I’m always happy to share that knowledge.”
When asked about being named by Global Franchise Magazine, Mr. Barnett said it was a great honor, “but not just because it’s an award. It’s because this award represents my passion. I care about franchising. It’s an important part of our economy and a great way for people to achieve their dreams of being a business owner. I’m really proud to be able to talk about something so important.”
Alongside Mr. Barnett, Global Franchise Magazine recognized nineteen other speakers for their impact on the franchising world. These included Melanie Bergeron, CEO of Two Men and a Truck; Shane Evans, co-founder of Massage Heights; Anthony Padulo, Executive Vice President of International and Domestic Franchise Development at BrightStar Care; and Larry Kruger, the President International of Wingstop Restaurants.
“Jonathan’s spot among the Top 20 is well earned. Like all the others on the list, you’ll find him to be the keynote speaker with more than just a ‘speech,’” said Richard Davies of Global Franchise Magazine.
