You may have seen Barry Maher on the Today Show, NBC Nightly News or CNBC, and he’s frequently featured in publications that range from USA Today, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal to—what he insists is his personal favorite—Funeral Services Insider.
Today Barry is in demand for business and professional audiences of all types. But he first made his mark as a management and sales consultant, helping clients improve their productivity, often dramatically. Selling Power magazine declared, “To his powerful and famous clients, Barry Maher is simply the best sales trainer in the business.”
It soon became apparent that the strategies that were so effective in helping managers and salespeople succeed, worked every bit as well with the issues all of us face in business.
And whether as a speaker or a consultant, Barry is hired to get results: to improve productivity and attitude and ultimately, the bottom line. To make his clients money.
Those clients include organizations like ABC, the American Bar Association, the American Management Association, AT&T, Blue Cross, Canon, Cessna, Colgate-Palmolive, Fuji, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Infiniti, Johnson & Johnson, McDonald's, Merck, the National Lottery of Ireland, Nestle, TIME/Warner, the U.S. Army, Verizon and Wells Fargo.
Barry’s books include Filling the Glass, which has been honored as “[One of] The Seven Essential Popular Business Books” by Today’s Librarian magazine.

Filling the Glass: Real World Tactics and Motivation for Increasing Productivity AND Job Satisfaction.
This is the antidote to sessions that are entertaining but full of “let’s all think happy thoughts and everything will be wonderful” fluff. It’s chock full of nuts and bolts content. Yet it’s real-world motivational, even inspirational. Perfect for the most cynical veteran AND the most starry-eyed (or the most discouraged) novice. • Jerry Colangelo, former owner of the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks, says "Packed with useful, practical advice . . . entertaining and frequently laugh out loud funny." • MPI, Meeting Professionals International, writes, "Often funny, occasionally blunt, always honest . . . Maher helps us fill our own glass through a skillful mix of case studies, tips, tactics and hard headed, reality-based inspiration."
