"Your involvement with the audience really held their attention. Your energy and passion for what for what you do is so evident while you are on stage, and even off.

Automotive

"You handled a tough crowd in a tough market better than anyone I've seen, and I have seen the best. It does not matter that you have never sold cars. You understand salespeople and the task they face. You teach a way to find customer's needs through complete communication, not just words. Our sales staff is a crew made up of car salespeople that have been with some of the most successful dealerships in Orange County. They were very impressed, and it was great having your workshop before a big sales weekend rollout." - Bill Pryor, General Manager, Norm Reeves Acura Superstore

Business

"You really did an incredible job the other day when I booked you for the Business Think Tank in Los Angeles. Almost all of the attendees came up to me after the event pouring out their compliments about the amount of take-home information you had given them and how they would be able to use it in their business lives and personal lives. I hear lots of speakers on a regular basis and know few who have comparable interaction with their groups and take-home value for the attendees. For those who cannot hear you in person, reading your book will at least give them a small part of you to carry with them until they are able to attend a presentation!" Susie DeWeese, President, Speakers Corner Bureau

We are discovering, understanding, and applying those tools in many significant ways... in our emails, meetings, and overall communications both internal and external to our department. The difference is simply powerful!!! We are more cohesive... we are more open... we are more understanding... and we are reaching consensus through healthy negotiation. We can only grow stronger as we continue to use the tools you have provided. Thank you for sharing your mastery in the areas of communications and negotiations." - Kim Callis, Systems Integrator, Corporate Health, Safety & Environment, General Mills, Inc.

We look forward to a continued relationship with you and Oxford Company!" - Karen Strgacich, Director of National Sales, Long Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau

Since attending your seminars, I have seen a vast improvement in the overall performance of the Vans sales team." - Les Draper, Director of Sales, Western Region, Vans Inc.

"Jeffrey's light and entertaining presentation syle makes the three-hour seminar, even in lovely Hawaii, fly by. However, he is more than entertaining, his seminar packs some real take home, practical 'to do's'.

That one take away was worth the money!" - Kathleen Patterson, President, Central Valley Builders Supply
