Shark Tank Star Speaking at SWOSU on February 18

Daymond John

Daymond John, one of the stars of ABC’s The Shark Tank, will speak at Southwestern Oklahoma State University on Wednesday, February 18, as part of the university’s Panorama series on the Weatherford campus. 

The 7:30 p.m. event will be held in the new Pioneer Cellular Event Center.

Brian Adler, chair of the Panorama Committee, said John has been a phenomenally successful business person for over 25 years. Along his entrepreneurial journey, through his many successes as well as failures, he has learned a few things about getting an edge on the competition. He believes the keys to his success include establishing the right mindset and following a few fundamental principles, which he calls his five "S.H.A.R.K points.” He is going to share his unique goal-setting and achievement strategies, which will empower audience members to make positive changes in every aspect of their lives.
