Your presentation at the May Denver meeting was amazing!  Thanks for all the great information.

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

Last week I attended the presentation of Frank Furness and I just want to let you know that it turned out to be a super treat! This man was inspiring, fascinating, well informed and sharp. In addition to this he combined (in a very attractive & visual way!) all actual aspects regarding Sales followed by Marketing.

Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI Nederland

 

While working on the details of our 2008 LEADERSHIP programme, Mr. Furness was suggested to us by various people. Were they ever right! After a brief, but very pleasant and ‘to the point’ telephone conversation, I was fully confident that Frank was definitely ‘our man’. Seen his extensive background in sales, we asked Mr. Furness to take care of the ‘HSMAI Leadership in Sales Event. Frank delivered that afternoon an upbeat, dynamic and cutting edge presentation on sales & marketing. Filled with humour, impressive facts, ‘speaking’ pictures and many, many practical ‘sales tools’. Afterwards he left the audience with several dedicated websites full of practical tools for their review and use. The feedback we got from our members was nothing less than superb! I therefore can only strongly advise any organization (looking for the ‘latest in sales & marketing’) to contact or even better: ‘secure’ Mr. Frank Furness for their programme.

Paul du Toit, MD the Congruence Group

 

"Frank, congratulations on a great presentation on day 2 of the Dutch Convention in Amsterdam - the time always seems to whizz by when you're on stage, and your tips are always invaluable. If you had been given twice the time it probably would not have been enough. We need to get you to an upcoming convention in South Africa - and I believe nothing less than a pre-con would do you justice. Thanks and well done!"
