“Great person. Great work ethic. A total success. I highly recommend him.” —Roy Firestone, National Sports Television Broadcaster
Welcome to Impact Speakers. I bring over 15 years of experience teaching, training and coaching sales professionals across many industries, but especially the financial services industry.
I have had a great passion for sales, presentation and speaking from as early as I remember! I served as the National Sales Training Director for AIG/Sun America and a Divisional Sales Manager for Sun Life Financial. During those years, I created and instituted several sales training programs for new hires, sales associates and top management. In addition, I assisted the marketing departments in crafting unified sales messaging and campaigns.
In 2005, I took the leap of faith and launched my entrepreneurial company Impact Speakers and I have never looked back! I now divide my time and energy between motivational speaking engagements and working directly with companies and individuals looking to improve and energize their businesses through upgrading their presentation, communication and sales results.
On a personal note, I have an abundance of energy and enthusiasm for life and people that I’ve been told is contagious. I performed improvisational comedy in Miami in the 1980′s, so my style is lighthearted, humorous and fun. I receive consistent feedback about how much more attendees are open to learning when they’re comfortable and having fun and the natural bonding and team building that takes place during the two day sessions!
I am a native of Miami Beach, now living in Alpharetta, GA for the past 11 years with my wife Tobi of thirty years, who is a Realtor for Prudential Georgia Realty. We have two children, Jared who is 28 and is an insurance agent for New York Life in the Fort Lauderdale area and Erica 22, who majored in Hotel and Restaurant Management and is pursuing a career in the field of Event Planning.
When I’m not working, you can find me onstage as the lead vocalist in a local band, traveling, playing golf and tennis, reading and actively involved with my family and friends!
