Testimonials 7

  • “Extraordinary! That’s how I describe your outstanding presentation to our sales associates and staff at our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices celebration event. Through the years I have had the good fortune to hear many speakers, including both former Presidents Bush, General Norman Schwarzkopf and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. You are without a doubt the best speaker I have ever witnessed. The moment you stepped onto the stage you commanded the room and you captured the hearts of our audience. Your remarks were perfect for the occasion.”

  • “Nido has mobilized our team members to aspire to act in an uncommonly extraordinary fashion to differentiate ourselves in an industry where doing so has a favorable impact on our customers. When service and relationships distinguish Benco as a value added dental distributor, Nido’s message heightens our awareness that it is important to provide a remarkable experience as we uniquely deliver value smile after smile. Team members commented that Nido was the best speaker we have ever had. He did a fantastic job in personalizing his presentation as if he prepared it specifically for Benco. The standing ovation says it all.”
