Curt Tueffert is considered “America’s Master Sales Motivator” due to his high energy, enthusiastic audience presence, and knowledge of sales motivation. He understands that motivation and knowledge can be combined to create the outcomes required to be successful.  He communicates a balance that gives people the right tools to get and stay motivated. Professionally, he has spent 28 years in sales.  From building teams from the ground up, to Vice President of Sales of Houston’s top computer integrator and Houston’s top Industrial Distributor, he has been around the block.  He has created successful teams, marketing programs, and exceeded sales goals as a professional.

Personally, he is a Certified Professional Behavioral Analyst (CPBA) with Target Training International.  His study of sales and human behavior provides a strong foundation for his Leadership, Motivation, and Sales presentations.  He is the author of 201 Sales Motivators, a collection of quotes and short editorials designed to inspire and motivate sales professionals.  Curt has just completed 5 Stones For Slaying Giants, a book written to address 5 critical success factors for business and life.
