Client results

With Hyundai Translead we worked with the North American sales and marketing team to improve their sales results and help them meet and exceed their annual targets.

“I expected to leave the meeting with at least a few ideas for our Sales Directors to consider, but to my surprise and delight it is now one week later and they are still animatedly discussing the material you presented. As you no doubt guessed, several of our more experienced people have been through training sessions and seminars over the course of their careers and some were skeptical of the value they would find in yet another seminar — that is no longer the case and the unanimous conclusion is that your concepts and presentation were among the most valuable tools they have ever had handed to them.”

“Over the years I have attended numerous sales training events. While all of them bring some value, yours was easily the best in terms of short and long term benefits.

All of our Sales Directors have spoken highly of your training and I can honestly say we have seen some immediate changes in behavior from most of them. The biggest change has come from the veteran who was the hardest to convince. In addition to the primary goal of improving sales techniques, I have seen improved performance from our own sales management group. I even incorporated some of your suggestions into my own behavior.

Your class should provide lasting benefits but we will definitely consider having you back again sometime in the future. I have recommended you to an associate already and I intend to do the same whenever the opportunity presents itself.”

At Gibson & Associates we worked with key agents in group health insurance and related products to increase their quality and quantity of sales activity, thereby increasing their sales and personal income as well as revenues to the agency.

Also at Gibson & Associates we created a five-year strategy and plan, worked closely with the management team to check progress on actions supporting the plan and served as a sounding board for opportunities and challenges that presented themselves along the way.

“John has been invaluable to us and our work. He convinced me to get out of the office and allow others to handle their functions. As a result, our sales, revenues, performance with carriers and levels of delight with our clients have all shown improvement. I consider John to be essential to our ongoing success.”

At Glasspro we initiated a system to develop managers and team leaders to take greater responsibility for their areas. We facilitated the creation of the company’s first performance-based incentive program. We helped the management team implement moves that put several team members in their most productive roles. We provided the planning that gave the company increased capacity to respond to customer calls and needs with a leaner, more functional team.

“Our company has gone from relatively flat growth facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles to having record growth and confidence that we can make the necessary adjustments to overcome our challenges…We appreciate John’s talents and dedication in assisting us in this process.”
