Just a quick message to thank you for the seminar you presented last week in Leeds. The content was one of the best (if not the best) I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Frank Furness spoke to my Academy for Chief Executives Group 11 meeting in December 2007 and received the highest score of the year - 9.5. Many members described this as a magical learning day and were euphoric in their praise for Frank as a speaker both from the stand point of delivery as well as content. From my point of view, as Chairman for Group 11 and former National Sales Manager and Managing Director of Encyclopaedia Britannica, I can say with complete confidence that Frank Furness is as good as it gets when he is on the stage delivering his message to his sales orientated audience. He is humorous, charismatic and completely knowledgeable on his subject. He is quite simply completely professional and outstanding value.
The highlight of the Infinity Financial Solutions January 2007 Sales Conference in Phuket was unquestionably the session delivered by Frank Furness. Our consultants have been buzzing since this session - as well as a vastly improved sense of team spirit, individuals have adopted a 'back to basics' approach that I am sure will deliver rewards immediately. We can't wait to book Frank again for the next conference and look forward to getting even more value.
