We are very proud of the extensive transportation expertise of our Sales organization, broad multi-mode service offerings, and doing the right things the right way. We know Logistics and are very good at it. However, we wanted Brian to help teach our experienced reps how to “increase their overall effectiveness.” Brian delivered!!

In fact, we’ve already booked Brian for 2020!"

"At The Hanover, we have a history of leveraging internal leaders for our Personal Lines National Sales Meeting. In 2020, we wanted to switch things up and bring in an external speaker for a new perspective. After a very selective vetting process, we invited Brian to speak on the principles of influence and persuasion. He was an engaging speaker and his content was relevant to our industry and applicable in our everyday lives, at home and at work. I’d strongly recommend Brian if you are looking to improve the effectiveness of your sales, marketing and communications."

Tory Pachis, Dept Vice President – Marketing, Amica Insurance
