Kevin Harrington, CEO | Vortex Drainage Systems LLC
I invited Chris to speak at our regional sales meeting to provide some insight on public speaking and sales presentations. Chris gave a tailored, insightful and entertaining presentation that provided actionable guidance and applicable suggestions for improvement. In addition, Chris provided helpful literature for attendees to take home for review. Once the presentation was done, Chris took the time to answer all questions in both the group setting and on an informal basis during the break. Feedback from the sales team was that the presentation was highly valuable and contained a great deal of information that could be directly applied to their next sales prospect. I would highly recommend Chris for any sales training you have, the more you can tell him about your business and the challenges you face, the more he can help you!

Employees have to understand and make the vision their own or it will fail (according to a recent Gallup report 50% of U.S. employees are disengaged, lacking motivation).
