“When I was an Outside Salesman I attended your Business Leadership Skills for the Wholesale Distribution Branch Manager Workshop with a couple of my colleagues. Since that workshop, I have been promoted to Branch Manager in 2 locations, one of the other Gentlemen has been promoted to V.P. & General Manager, and the third Gentleman has been promoted to President of a business segment. All three of us thought the workshop was excellent and this is why I have purchased your Cracking Accounts books for my Teams.”
