Allan Boress changes cultures, changes mindsets.

Each time we work with Allan, it has a lasting impression on our people. Allan's material is very atypical of what is generally offered in sales training programs. Our partners, managers and staff are more likely to think about the marketing and networking possibilities in everything they do, from social activities to the way they work with clients. Working with Allan can go a long way in terms of changing culture, changing mindsets — permanently!

Just because you are a professional service provider doesn't mean you can't sell.

... And it's not that hard! It's even somewhat logical. Allan Boress' program has definitely had an impact on our ability to sell, and on self-confidence in sales situations. Allan provides valuable tools and a methodology to support ongoing, greater success. Our work with him gave us a common way to communicate, a common framework in which to approach and close a sale.
