Joe DeLucchi, SF 2 Chair at Provisors
“This is online training is just what I needed. I can go at my own pace and stop the video to do the lesson in my own LinkedIn account. I can even download the videos to my iPad and review them while I travel.”
Carol Bell, Partner, Social Media Hospitality Marketing Trainer at Hospitality Links
“I saw Kurt moderate a panel at the eMarketing Association conference in SF last week. He was a brilliant and funny and excellent moderator.”
Thomas Meshanko, Senior Market Development Consultant at Catalyst Connection
“Kurt facilitated our recent Networking 101 session for over 100 students at our recent Spring Mixer in the SSU School of Business and Economics. Why Kurt? Because his enthusiasm for and genuine interest in people is contagious, his communication skills are the best I know, and his ability to connect with and lead a group is absolutely the tops! Kurt delivers all you hope for and MORE. And, if that’s not enough, his humor will win you over!”
Sarah Dove, SBE Career Center Director at SSU
“I was lucky enough to listen to Kurt speak during my Sales Management & Personal Selling class at Sonoma State University. His knowledge of networking and LinkedIn are phenomenal! His presentation was not only the best I have seen all semester, but it was the best presentation throughout my whole college career. I am currently seeking a career with LinkedIn and it because of Kurt I am using my resources to their fullest potential.”
Matthew Melser, Sales Associate at Applied Research Group
“I hired Kurt to speak at my boss’s peer group meeting, which I planned but did not attend. After the meeting, my boss told me it was evident Kurt had done ample research on the participants. He also had taken the time to pick up some of our industry jargon. He adapted well to the group (as he told me he would). Kurt’s leadership of the discussion and the content was very helpful to the group. My boss was quite satisfied, and I am grateful for the high level of professionalism Kurt brought to the opportunity.”
Audrey Giroux, marketing manager at Jim Murphy and Associates
“I recently presented at Gizmology (National Speakers Association) and had the opportunity to observe Kurt’s LInked In round table presentation. He packed in a lot of information in 25 minutes. Focused presentation with excellent, engaging slides. I gained some new and valuable information for expanding B2B & B2C networks using LInked In Business Pages. Looking forward to future collaborations with Kurt.”
Sheryl “Shera” Sever, Leadership and Business Development Consultant at California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce
“Kurt recently presented to our ProVisors group in San Francisco. He was well received and immediately impacted the business of several members. He has been invited to other ProVisor events in San Francisco. Kurt enables even the most experienced LinkediN users insight to help them in their sales efforts. To coin “Joe Bob Briggs at the Drive In” Check it out. Bill”
William Vick, Senior Vice President – Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
“As the featured guest speaker before our Marketing Warriors group event, Kurt gave us an overview of LinkedIn, its importance and basics on how to use it. His address was well organized, highly informative, delivered with humor and populated with audience participation and relevant examples. His performance as a speaker was a perfect A+. I can’t recommend him any more strongly!”
Tim Smith, President / Principal Consultant at New Paradigm Marketing Group
“Lots of practical information. I came away from Kurt’s 25 minute presentation with a dozen ways I could improve my LinkedIn presence.”
Cindy Ventrice, Author at Berrett-Koehler
“I took Kurt’s webinar series and just heard him speak live as well. He is fabulous! He makes it all look so easy…and adds lots of humor and fun to the learning as well. I highly recommend him.”
Judy Burgio, Principal, HealthSynergy, Consulting to Individuals, Groups and Organizations at HealthSynergy
“Kurt gives a whole new meaning to high energy, information packed presentations. I recently attended one of his sessions. Loved all the practical ideas, humor and stories. Not surprisingly, it was a standing room only event.”

Clark Morton, Vice President at Woodruff-Sawyer & Co.
“I hired Kurt to take me through the basics of LinkedIn because of his reputation and recommendations. We went through a 4 week course that was personalized to my needs. He was patient and brought to our meetings a sheet of goals and objectives. I was very excited to see how utilizing LinkedIn has helped me meet people that I have been wanting to connect with. I have been able to use each process that we covered and this is a big achievement, as I really prefer to stay away from the computer.”
Sanford E. Bressick, Registered Representitive at New York Life
“Kurt and worked together after I heard him speak at a professional meeting. He enhanced my knowledge of Linked In hugely as well as my comfort and confidence in using it. He also challenged me to be more aggressive in approaching groups and engaging in conversations to increase my opportunity to recruit high level attorneys for my attorney search business. He also has an engineering background which makes him especially astute at technical issues with LinkedIn.”
Mary Jeanne Moyer, Attorney Recruitment, Legal Recruiter, IP Litigation and Prosecution Attorney Recruiter at MJM Associates
“As the Sales Director for Vintners Inn/John Ash & Co., I balance my time between managing the sales team, handling some major accounts, and activities like attending trades shows for meeting planners. It is a challenging position because we have three different types of sales – weddings, corporate meetings, and social events. Over the past few months, I, along with some of my sales team, have attended four of your seminars.
One of the things I like about your training is that it combines practical selling techniques with general-purpose skills like communications and motivation. I use a number of the techniques I learned in my personal selling efforts as well as in managing my team. I look forward to expanding our relationship to include your in-house training/exercises.”
Jessica Adams, Sales Director, Vintners Inn
“I wanted to let you know how please I was with the sales training you conducted for Sonic.net. My favorite exercise was the role plays for cold calling and in-person networking introductions. The customer testimonial letters that resulted from the training will live on as valuable tools to help salespeople overcome objections and build credibility.
I look forward to working with you in the future and I would be happy to recommend you to anyone that wants to spark some new ideas to boost sales.”
Mark Loher, Director of Sales and Marketing, Sonic.net
“Your sales coaching program delivers much more than anything we’d get out of simple sales seminar. One reason the program works so well is that the seminar lessons are reinforced by the weekly mini-sessions and booklets. Now our sales rep has an impressive collection of customer testimonials, company news, and industry articles he uses to establish rapport in a new way.
I like that you take an owner’s view and think beyond the Sales department. You have helped us initiate relationships with alliance partners and you politely nudge us to keep projects like the new Web site and email newsletter moving forward. I would recommend your full program to anyone who wants a more professional sales team.”
Duane DeLong, President, Datacon Dental Systems
“La Tortilla Factory places a high value on training. You succeeded in meeting the challenge. Here are some comments from the participants:
The seminar was very professional, energetic, and dynamic. I like activities, so I enjoyed that there were many. Kurt was a breath of fresh air…I wish he worked for us.
I would recommend your services to any company looking for a professional sales training program.”
Jonna Greene, VP Human Resources, La Tortilla Factory
“Kurt is a proven executive sales manager. He built a strong sales culture, turning it from an underachiever to a top performer. His success was driven by setting expectations, monitoring performance and positive coaching techniques. I highly recommend Kurt”
