Testimonials

 

Dave Richardson’s “10 Store Meetings” is one of the best sales training tools I have ever invested in. No longer do I find myself pondering what to cover at a sales meeting, now I can just grab the book and go. I share Dave’s belief that it is critical to focus on one or two specific areas in each meeting, rather than on loading a lot of information on people at one time. I also like the fact that the training is scripted, and therefore very easy to use. My people enjoy the worksheets and save them for future reference. I’m at the point now where I’m asking each salesperson to study one of the meetings and become the meeting leader at a sales meeting. ~ Chip Stone, Stonecraft Jewelers

 

Talk about a successful seminar . . . the very next day Ray made a $10,400.00 sale by ll:30 a.m. He said the creative passion ideas gained during your seminar really worked well with this customer. ~ Jim Woodard, Woodard’s Diamond Showroom

 

Our stores were up every month of the fall with double digit increases. December showed an amazing increase with every store being ahead for the month! ~ John Jensen, Jensen Jewelers

 

Day 1 after our meeting was very successful. We sold 3 engagement rings, and one lady added on a pair of stud earrings. What I did notice was the reaction on each person’s face when asked how they were going to propose. Every person was immediately much warmer and had a smile on their face when asked the question. They felt important and my whole staff walked away feeling successful yesterday, not just because of the sales, but because the bond we felt like we made with our customers. My whole staff was fired up yesterday and we began implementing many suggestions that you made. I felt like the training was very successful, not only for me but also for all that attended and I am feeling much more confident about our holiday season. Thank you for all that your expertise that you shared with us. ~ Chris Uptain, Christopher Diamonds

 

Your unique training methods coupled with your infectious enthusiasm and your in depth follow-up program left our people ready for the Christmas season. In October, November, and December our sales were the highest in the history of the company. ~ Arthur Kaplan, Arthur Kaplan Jewellery, South Africa

 

Well, the proof is in the numbers . . . one of our three stores was up 42% during the last four months, the other up 68%, and another up a whopping 127%! There is no question in my mind, or the minds of my people, that the strategies you shared with us worked and worked exceptionally well. ~ Tom Hoyt, Siebke Hoyt Jewelers

 

Since your recent seminar with my entire staff and the special training for my management team, our sales have been fantastic. Our June and July sales figures were the best in our entire history – and that’s over 70 years of success to beat. ~ William D. Levine, Van Cott Jewelers

 

The very next day after your presentation which was the Monday you spent with our managers, one of our part-time sales ladies sold a $6,000 diamond bracelet as a Christmas gift. The customer (husband) also mentioned that his wife had always wanted a Rolex. This sales lady converted him to an $1,800 Cyma using your techniques she learned on Sunday. Other comments were, Dave wasn’t intimidating like that other man we had a few years ago, the Strategic Sales plan should be easy to follow, and I already have my favorite piece of jewelry picked out. ~ Richard W. Argo, Argo & Lehne Jewelers

 

For years our staff has known what to do. Now, they know how to do it. They all believe the methods were simple and the goals easy to accomplish. ~ Brian R. Alter, Alter’s Gem Jewelry

 

Your dynamic seminar was very well received by our International Management team. I will contact you to reserve an early April date for another inspirational workshop next year. ~ Hermann Hirsch, Hirsch Bracelets GmbH

 

Interestingly enough the two managers who work the hardest on this program achieved increases in December of 28% and 42%. Dave, generally speaking we have changed our approach somewhat to selling jewelry because of your seminar. ~ C. Clayton Bromberg, Underwood’s

 

I honestly believe that our time spent in your seminar was one of the best “educational” time (and money) we have spent in recent years. My only regret is that it has taken us so long to meet and hear you. Thanks for all you have done for us and our associates. ~ Scott Ayers, Ayers Jewelry

 

Thank you for assisting Bristol, Bragg and Young and having the most successful Christmas season ever. ~ Brent Young, Bristol, Bragg & Young

 

We have used many speakers in the past, some spoke of business.., some were motivational… But none of them have been able to touch the minds and hearts of our people in a wonderful manner that you did. Your magic, humor, and real-world examples made it a winner for everyone. ~ Kim D. Campbell, Managing Director New Image International, Auckland, New Zealand

 

Your seminar was not only the highlight of our managers form, but also a critical factor in the continuing education and motivation of our people. We look forward to working with you again in the very near future. ~ Jake Einhorn, Senior Vice President, General Merchandise Manager, Neiman Marcus

 

Thank you for despondent tenants into positive tenants. Your seminar without a doubt helped our tenants adopt a far more positive attitude toward their retail business. We are pleased to hear that you are returning to South Africa and wish to confirm another seminar with you at that time. ~ V. V. Reinders, Cresta Shopping Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa
