We spent a lot of time searching for the right keynote speaker. When we met Victor, we knew almost immediately that he was the one! Victor asked great questions, worked directly with our sales leadership and met with a few members of our sales team. Victor's hour long keynote kept over 550 sales associates engaged from beginning to end. Victor was clear with his strategies, tactics and reminders. His sales velocity formula combined with modest changes in the variables will certainly yield Powerful results! Overall, Victor was terrific and super easy to work with!
