"The list of speakers I have heard in my 22 years in sales management is long and contains every big name in the business. Trust me when I tell you that I've heard them all. On the other hand, the list of speakers that I have heard that had the impact on an audience that you did at the AFRDS National Convention contains no names. Without a doubt, your message and superb delivery have, in my mind, set you apart from the other guys. We had a tough audience and I was somewhat surprised at how quickly you had everyone 'on the same page'. You really made me look good for recommending you, but more importantly, you made a difference to those who heard you. In our Association's entire history, you are the only professional speaker to receive a standing ovation."
"You were a smash hit. Having a speaker of your caliber makes a conference chairman's job a breeze."
“It was not just good to have you with us, it was fantastic. Your presentation was highly effective and I have heard all weekend about how much people enjoyed it. I am thrilled with the outcome.”
“To say you’ve changed the way we look at doing business is a massive understatement, you have changed the way we do business completely, both in understanding what we have done right and what we need to do in order to do things better.”
