Testimonials 3

  • “Christine, I really want to thank you attending our Club Siemens event in November. Your presentation was very well received by our customers, and many of them have since commented to me on how many great ideas they took away from our event based on your presentation. The advice that you offered was very consistent with the marketing initiatives we have been deploying with our Club Siemens members over the past few months. Thanks again for taking time out of your Thanksgiving weekend to spend with us.”

    Jeff Malpass

    President & CEO, Siemens Hearing Instruments Inc.

  • “I recently attended the Professional Club Marketing Association’s national strategic conference. Through many years of attending conferences, seminars and presentations targeting marketing and salespersons, I had become a bit jaded. I love selling and marketing, but felt most speakers simply took the same basic thoughts and put their spin on it. Not so with Christine Clifford. I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!!

    With sharing her personal experiences and insight, it totally invigorated all who attended her two presentations. Every topic she covered had the audience captivated. I was literally enthralled and had wished she was booked for the entire day. I highly recommend Christine to others looking for a program that inspires people to reach their potential.”

    Director of Marketing & Membership, Hawk Pointe Golf Club

  • “Thank you for being a world class speaker! You were everything we could have hoped for and  more. From our very first contact, your professionalism and warmth were evident, and you showed a genuine interest in what our organization is all about. You took the time to find out as much information as possible about us, and what we wanted you to convey to the audience. From a logistics standpoint, you could not have been easier to work with. We are pleased to give Christine the highest endorsement possible.”
