After many years in the sales industry, it has been highly refreshing to find a professional who can rekindle the fire in our sales force. Frank's professionalism and knowledge of sales in my opinion cannot be equalled and since his motivational talk, there has been a dramatic increase in our sales figures.
I've now seen Frank have an impact on three separate audiences from chief executives to people in their first sales role. He is always stimulating – with a great combination of practical sales knowledge, constant confidence-building, and an energizing presentational style.
Frank Furness injects his presentations with a genuine passion for the subject bringing his message to life with real world examples drawing from blue-chip businesses he has helped to grow. Never boring and always informative Frank is one of the best speakers and trainers I have seen in a long time.
