"When i started my Computer Consulting (IT) business back in 1991, I was blessed to have an abundant amount of business for the coming years. I never had a sales strategy since i did not need one since business would just come. Now due to the 2008-2009 economy, and businesses failing I lost an enormous amount of clients. I was soon to realize that I did not know, or have a sales plan. I want to thank you for opening my mind, and teaching me all of the powerful concepts that your program delivers. Even though I am a novice at selling, i feel like a pro after your seminar. I cant wait to put your sales techniques to work.

"Victor is one of life’s truly interesting people. He is someone who understands how business happens across multiple cultures and although he likes to sell, and he really understands what that takes, his love is simply being part of the creation of a successful business environment. I had the great pleasure of spending time in Southern Africa with Victor. The business landscape was complex and although we didn’t know each other before the trip there was no need for us to ‘learn’ each other. Victor has that rare ability to read a room and exchange all the information required through momentary but expressionless eye contact. All too often colleagues confuse each other in meetings but Victor would never allow that to happen. I would be delighted to have an opportunity of working with Victor again…"

"Victor is easily the best public speaker I have ever heard. He is a natural at connecting with the audience. Besides his ability to personalize every presentation, he has a deep understanding of sales, and more importantly the how and the why buyers buy. My sales skills greatly increased from working with and learning from Victor. I worked with Victor for close to 18 months. In that time I was able to witness his incredible group presenting skills. But mostly I benefited from our one-on-one coaching sessions; from them my ability to undertsand the customer most developed. To sum it up, Victor is a motivational sales machine
that knows how to win over any audience or customer and in turn knows how to teach it to others."

"My committee recently hired Victor to be the Keynote Speaker at the local HR Associations Diversity Conference. I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation, it was funny and made us think about personal biases we have. I appreciated his abililty to get everyone engaged in what he was saying as many of us could relate to his personal stories. Victor also has the unique ability to change directions in his presentation when he see's that some in the audience may not get what he is communicating. I was so impressed with his presentation that I recommended him to my company president as someone to come in and conduct sales training. Way to go Victor!! Keep doing what you do. Kay "
— Kenetta Kay Jones, PHR Human Resources Manager GEM Inc &
"Victor simply rocks! He has an unique ability as a trainer and speaker---i.e., you know he’s done the presentation numerous times before, but he made it seem fresh and new. He engages his audience right away and never lets go. He delivers belly laughs, mixed with extremely credible content and relevant insights. Victor also has the ability to think on his feet, and take what the audience gives him. I never felt Victor presented himself as the ‘know it all expert’…but, rather, someone who strived to find common ground with the listener and offer fresh insights. I am a believer in the power of a effective speaker like Victor to make a real difference, and he did just that. Hire this man!"
— Dave Tippett, PHR

"I've attended two of Victor's seminars; one on social media and the other on sales training. Both were very well presented, professional and results oriented. In particular, the Response Block Selling training was loaded with the latest research which Victor easily worked into his delivery. He is without a doubt on the cutting edge of providing sales training for the new age. I've already started using his techniques with success.
BTW - I have been to many seminars and some of them by the top names in the industry including Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins, Anthony Robins and my favorite, Jim Rohn. Victor can definitely hold his own with them."
— Joe the Cigartainer Sweigart

to our sales staff."
