What Leaders are Saying

Jonathan Gerber, Managing Director—American Express & Seekers Travel South Africa

 

Your very accessible style made the information you shared with our team intelligible and easy to assimilate, and we still talk about the incredibly ‘simple’ approach you adopt to what is often considered the complicated process of doing business. Not without the elements of fun, your presentation was well targeted and well received, and we thank you for your insight and for presenting your ideas in a way that each delegate believed that they could take back with them, and move towards personal and professional growth and success

Jonathan Gerber, Managing Director—American Express & Seekers Travel South Africa

Abi Doyle, Head of Group Marketing, The Premier Paper Group

Ian Curran—MD THQ

 

Rome, - an offsite meeting with my reports -  heads of business from across the world, different nationalities, different backgrounds and different business areas. Frank conducted a half day session on day two of the three day meeting.
Frank is energised, motivated and engaging. There was no-one in the room who was not captivated by what he was saying. He had really prepared and tailored his material to fit into my required business outcomes. The whole morning was varied, interesting, moving, thought provoking and uplifting.
My team was left highly motivated for the business year ahead, driven, and armed with tools to help realise action plans. Testament to the impact of Frank’s session is that once back in the office, dealing with daily work issues, the team continues to pull on the resources and motivation gained from Frank.
I would highly recommend Frank – he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to experience.
Ian Curran—MD THQ

I found your talk full of exciting practical ideas delivered with infectious enthusiasm.  Everyone present must have been able to go out and increase their sales - provided they acted on something you said.

Carl French, Institute of Directors Herts Events Organiser

Keith Millard, Chairman—The Executive Council

 

You provided the group with a wealth of ideas, techniques and practices to achieve greatly improved sales. The group greatly enjoyed the humour that threaded its way throughout your presentation without allowing this to turn the morning solely into entertainment. The focus on attitude and attributes of sales people, both in recruitment and ongoing performance was ideal for our group

Every time I sit in Frank's audience it’s like going to the bank - AND Making a Big Deposit. What do you need to learn to fatten your bank account?
