Robert Bradford, CEO | Center for Simplified Strategic Planning
“I've seen David speak many times, and he always stimulates great ideas for marketing my business. Not only is he an excellent speaker, but he has given me rock-solid ideas about how to amp up my own marketing.”
Kirstin Carey, Owner | Nourish Restaurant, Scottsdale AZ
“David delivers, delivers, and delivers some more. David has one of the quickest and most creative marketing minds I've ever come across. His practical, ready-to-be-used advice is dead on. His style is in-your-face without being too harsh, with a twist of good humor thrown in.”
Steven Stein, Program Chair | Oracle/JDEdwards User Group
“Once again the feedback from attendees was phenomenal, they loved it, and dare I say it was our very best meeting! David has great energy and is highly recommended!”
Jeff Phillips, Western U.S. Account Manager | XPEL Technologies
“The concepts in David's presentation truly transcended any industry specific rules, making it VERY pertinent to our dealers. David did a superb job of learning our business model and applying it to his presentation. The preparation and attention to detail was very apparent to all of us!”
Cynthia Huber, Executive Director | Sales and Marketing Executives International (SMEI)
“David provided an abundance of practical tools, an engaging style, fabulous ideas, and most importantly… ENCOURAGEMENT and MOTIVATION. I applied some of David’s ideas right away and realized a difference in my marketing style and my bottom line. I highly recommend David Newman.”
Doug Schmidt, Director of Business Development | MarketWorks
“David’s ability to talk about and implement marketing/sales strategies provided me with a common sense approach on how to sell more. I would recommend that any sales, marketing or C-level executive should listen to David’s ideas on how to get results!”
Mary Broussard, CEO | The Barter Connection Network
“David has been training our sales staff and I have to say, he is the best sales trainer I have had the pleasure of working with. David is immediately responsive, always has a ton of new ideas and works well with everyone. I highly recommend his services to people needing a blast off in their production.”
Michael Roby, President | Michael Roby and Associates
“Do you REALLY want to grow your business? Then hire David Newman! David provides more solid marketing in one hour than you can imagine. Actionable ideas flow from his personal and collective experience in growing professional services firms.”
Gerard Braud, CEO | Braud Communications
“It is frightening to see just how "spot on" David is with his strategies. Within the first few minutes of his presentation, I had already written down three million-dollar ideas. I can't wait until I get to see one of his presentations again.”
Steve Horner, Founder and CEO | Consultants Forum
"Practical, nuts-and-bolts, and loaded with valuable strategies, tools, and tactics. If people didn't leave the room with $30,000 or $40,000 of value, they must have been sleeping!!"
Cindy Jones, Sales | GE Capital Mortgage
"The seminar was great. David gave me many useful ideas. Session was so relaxed, it was almost like talking with him one-on-one."
Marie-Josee Shaar, Founder | Smarts and Stamina
“The best part about David's marketing advice? It's motivating! For someone like me who usually wants to run in the opposite direction the minute I hear about sales tactics, the fact that I'm actually looking forward to applying his strategies is HUGE! David makes a ton of sense in a un-common sense kind of way!”
Gail Welkes, President | Focus Personnel
“Having experienced a multitude of sales and marketing programs, I was astonished at the tangible and immediate results of David’s action-oriented process. I walked away with two results – an increase in clients and revenue, and a yearning to continue to apply these skills. Finally, something that works!"
Tom Sheives, Project Management Leader | Project Management Institute Worldwide
“Between David’s seminar and our individual coaching, it was really one of the best values I have received to help me grow my business and give me the confidence in marketing my services. David really is the Great Guru in marketing for small businesses!”
