Jeff Travis, Chief Executive, Life Insurance Association, UK
"What an excellent presentation. It was unanimously claimed as the best session any of the team had experienced. Everybody is charged up and my only challenge is to ensure that we carry through the great ideas you provided."
Alistair Altham, Group Marketing Director, Johnson Fry Securities Ltd, London
Your very accessible style made the information you shared with our team intelligible and easy to assimilate, and we still talk about the incredibly ‘simple’ approach you adopt to what is often considered the complicated process of doing business. Not without the elements of fun, your presentation was well targeted and well received, and we thank you for your insight and for presenting your ideas in a way that each delegate believed that they could take back with them, and move towards personal and professional growth and success
Jonathan Gerber, Managing Director—American Express & Seekers Travel South Africa
You provided the group with a wealth of ideas, techniques and practices to achieve greatly improved sales. The group greatly enjoyed the humour that threaded its way throughout your presentation without allowing this to turn the morning solely into entertainment. The focus on attitude and attributes of sales people, both in recruitment and ongoing performance was ideal for our group
Keith Millard, Chairman—The Executive Council
Everyone was appreciative & enthusiastic of your presentation. There has been a great deal of genuine learning and motivation. Your presentation made everyone feel involved, and one of my team remarked that, although you were presenting to a large audience, he felt that you were actually teaching him and communicating with him individually
Karan F Bilimoria, Chief Executive—Cobra Beer
More people have commented on how much they enjoyed and learned from your session than we have had from any other speaker
