Their whole organization benefits because everyone is now pulling in the
same direction. A departmental consolidation threatened to wipe out best
practices developed over the last 4 years. By applying a process for using
different communications tactics and demonstrating how to contribute for
the good of the group, people are taking positive action. "I now
have a repeatable framework for presenting and selling, and it works!"
The result? A more cohesive, stable, and productive organization.

ADP put improved sales tools in place, and retained $100,000 in "bonus"
business along the way. Their sales force had few tools beyond a demo
of their software product, and sales were inconsistent from rep to rep
and month to month. Now they have powerful testimonial letters to use,
plus training on how to apply proof sources to get more sales. "Testimonial
letters from our current customers make it easier for our salespeople
to sell new accounts."

Akzo succeeded in getting their new software product in front of tough
prospects and separating themselves from the competition. "We were
at a loss as to how to approach the market with our new product."
From that start, they converted a tightly focused sales message into
a set of marketing tools that included presentations, demonstrations,
ROI illustrations, seminars, and trade shows. "It's great to finally
have consistency all through the sales process."

Now that deals are finding them, ASI is on track to double revenues
over last year. The complexities of their software offering made it
difficult to communicate their business case in an easy to understand
and memorable way. "Since you helped us name our core software
last October, we've been getting more positive decisions resulting in
more orders." With their new product name, a tellable story, and
a reseller program, opportunities are finding them, including their
first round of venture capital. After 12 years in business, ASI has
never been in more demand, or more profitable.

care client. Xperio needed additional resources to put together the

Better Health" is a direct result of your help in nailing down
their brand identity." More important, the client is getting the
results they desired.

IPG managed to double their revenues in only 60 days. John Lavell's
company was being pulled in conflicting directions before a simple strategic
plan, some product mix adjustment, and a little negotiation coaching
opened the floodgates. "We feel we are much better off now ...
more revenue, much higher margins, a strategic plan, and a simpler business."
John's out of the business now. He's since sold out and retired - at

found their lead investors in less than 3 weeks. "Your efforts
will help us capitalize on this opportunity and bring the strength of
our business model to millions of people."
