Testimonials 5

  • “The most thought-provoking keynote I’ve ever seen.”

    Omaid Homayun

  • Thank you again for a great event! I’m still receiving calls from folks that attended wondering when we’ll have you in town again. The tips and tricks that they took away were “priceless” and many can’t wait to implement them. I too took much away from the event. The products we sell are fully capable of providing the features needed to put your ideas to work right away for the customer. Many of my reps are already using your ideas to help sell our products. I’d almost say that we gained more from the event than our customers. But after some of the calls I have received, I’d say it’s a tossup.

  • We have truly had rave reviews about him, and I believe he is absolutely the best speaker we have had during the series. He provided exactly the kind of information our small business members needed – easy-to-understand, easy-to-do social media tips with excellent case studies to really bring the ideas alive.
