TESTIMONIAL FROM METALS ASN EXECUTIVETo my metals executive colleagues: With the latest on China, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you about a program we had at our general membership meeting last week in Myrtle Beach. Tom Faranda (our highest rated speaker at nine of our previous engagements) presented his newest program, "China and YOUR Bottom Line...China's Gameplan". Our Participants Evaluations rated him a 4.5 out of 5. This was a full morning session and he has done his homework. He explains China's game plan for the next decade, its potential for an internal meltdown and how to compete against them. The session drew a packed audience and included many spouses. No topic could be more timelier and I seriously recommend you do yourself a favor and explore Tom's availability today. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TESTIMONIAL FROM GLOBAL MFG CORPORATIONMr. Faranda keynoted our global convention of 180 SENIOR EXECUTIVES from 51 COUNTRIES. He presented a two-hour keynote entitled, "Global Realities.....Selling in the new millennium" and received a standing ovation which is very unusual for executive programs. All of the executives received a copy of his new book, "The GLOBAL Sales Professional" after the program. In addition, he was asked to keynote again in the evening after the awards banquet for our 300 guests--the executives and their spouses. He presented his inspirational program, "FOOTPRINTS" and once again received a standing ovation. Incredible! In the process of selecting Tom Faranda as our keynote speaker, our VP's comments to his speaker selection team were as follows:
"The reason I remember Faranda is because of the impact he has had, not only on me, but on the group I have heard him speak to before (The Metal Treating Institute). There is a reason that he is a repeat speaker at so many of these high level meetings. I have seen at least a dozen of what you refer to as "High energy" speakers and I share your skepticism as well, since I have seen and heard the gimmicks of a Zig Ziglar and even Covey. These guys have not stuck with me, but Tom's message of globalism and experience has a very good effect on people, and that is what I saw in Faranda. He speaks to the effect of globalism on all parts of the globe, not just a USA perspective. Also, the plan is to distribute his new book, The GLOBAL Sales Professional, as well--along with reinforcing audio CD. This addresses the concept of "taking something tangible away" from his session. Lastly, I have seen Tom a couple of times and at some point you have to trust your teammates to send you the right way, and I'm telling you he is the right way for us. He's way more than rah rah. Trust ME on this.
