Our high expectations for the presentation were met.  Everyone gained practical ideas that they could implement immediately.  Overall, we felt the presentation was energizing, insightful, focused and easily applied.

I don’t think we knew exactly what to expect, but we sure were happy with the results. This was the most intense sales training program we have ever conducted. The reception and participation of our sales staff was excellent. You addressed our expressed needs, provided valuable support material, did a great job of keeping everyone engaged, and everyone’s comments were very positive. Among the best things we gained was the strategy for better analyzing territories and clients into priority groups – ABC; and how dealing with different personalities is as important as dealing with different product requirements. We now have a great foundation from which to work. I appreciate your help in constructing it and will recommend you to others. In the future, we will think of you first as our training partner.”

In the weeks since the presentation I have had several sales reps credit the information you presented when sharing success stories with me. We have used your presentation as a platform to build in 2004 as we ask our reps to be much more proactive about planning how they need to spend their valuable sales time. I know that this will have a positive impact on our business in the future. We look forward to bringing you back to a future National Sales Meeting.”

Christine R. Shemas, NAFTA Sales Manager Roadranger Marketing (Eaton Corporation – Aftermarket Division)

 #185. “I hired Dave Kahle to so a seminar for our thirty-five salespeople. I asked Dave to help us be more focused and prepared, and to better overcome objections and close deals. When I completed Dave’s post seminar evaluation, I was pleased to rate him at the highest levels for most areas of his presentation. One of the best things we gained was the ability to be better prepared and the ability to ask pertinent questions. Other managers and I found that specific advice helpful as we moderated customer breakout sessions at a recent business conference. One of the biggest assets Dave Kahle brought to our sales team was the fact that he is “one of us”. He understands what we go through every day as distributor salespeople, and he addressed those issues. If I were to summarize his presentation in five words, it would be that Dave was “well prepared, concise, and relevant” – just what I want our people to be to our customers. I recommended Dave to our senior sales and product management and I would recommend him for any sales training or sales management needs. I think he can bring creative insights to any strategic business situation, and be especially helpful for distributors.”

  • Where can I get his book?
  • This is what we have to focus on.
  • Very practical and motivational.
  • This is the stuff that makes a salesperson.

We had over 400 attendees in over 10 locations, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. You have led this “road show” for I.D.A. before, and your performance just keeps getting better!… AN I.D.A. member told me that he sent three veteran salesmen to one of the Spring Workshops. They went, expecting that after over 30 years in the business, there was nothing new they could learn. They came back excited and inspired with new ideas to implement. What better endorsement could there be for this program?”

As one of our people said,”he’s not just giving us the meat and potatoes, but also the fork to eat them with.” The second part of the session for managers was also excellent. Following up with the sales people is critical to successfully implementing the things they learned from you. Providing our managers with a set of tools will have a huge impact on our long-term success. We look forward to working with you again to introduce more of our sales people to the rock solid guidelines for success you shared with us last week.”

Great!” Even beyond the evaluations, there was a buzz in the halls after your presentation that you provided a “go-to” source for quality presentations and spoke as an expert.”
