What Leaders are Saying
Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI Nederland
While working on the details of our 2008 LEADERSHIP programme, Mr. Furness was suggested to us by various people. Were they ever right! After a brief, but very pleasant and ‘to the point’ telephone conversation, I was fully confident that Frank was definitely ‘our man’. Seen his extensive background in sales, we asked Mr. Furness to take care of the ‘HSMAI Leadership in Sales Event. Frank delivered that afternoon an upbeat, dynamic and cutting edge presentation on sales & marketing. Filled with humour, impressive facts, ‘speaking’ pictures and many, many practical ‘sales tools’. Afterwards he left the audience with several dedicated websites full of practical tools for their review and use. The feedback we got from our members was nothing less than superb! I therefore can only strongly advise any organization (looking for the ‘latest in sales & marketing’) to contact or even better: ‘secure’ Mr. Frank Furness for their programme.
Stuart Thomson, MD of PIC, Dubai
After many years in the sales industry, it has been highly refreshing to find a professional who can rekindle the fire in our sales force. Frank's professionalism and knowledge of sales in my opinion cannot be equaled and since his motivational talk, there has been a dramatic increase in our sales figures.
Deborah Fox, Managing Director, Emerging Real Estate Ltd
A day of sales training with Frank Furness so inspired our sales team that six weeks on, and they are still enthusiastically employing his techniques. Each sales person in the office has their goals pinned up in front of them and we have a huge poster in the office which says ‘Think Frank’.
Frank has changed the way we work – he has given us confidence to enjoy the sales pitch and to sell better and more effectively.
Clive Chappell - Sales & Marketing Manager, MFH Group Of Companies
Just a quick message to thank you for the seminar you presented last week in Leeds. The content was one of the best (if not the best) I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Fabian Fidelis, CEO, Proactive, Malaysia
Just wanted to let you know again that your seminar really gave me the direction I needed to move my business into the big time
Ian Curran—MD THQ
Rome, - an offsite meeting with my reports - heads of business from across the world, different nationalities, different backgrounds and different business areas. Frank conducted a half day session on day two of the three day meeting.
Ben Bennett, CEO, Infinity, Thailand
"The highlight of the Infinity Financial Solutions Sales Seminar was unquestionably the session delivered by Frank Furness entitled ‘Successful Sales Consultancy’. Our Consultants have been buzzing since this session - as well as a vastly improved sense of team spirit, individuals have identified where they were going wrong and have adopted a back to basics approach that I am sure will deliver rewards immediately. We all can't wait for the next conference and look forward to getting even more value from Frank"

Harold J. Kluit, Director of Revenue & Marketing, Swissôtel Amsterdam
Last week I attended the presentation of Frank Furness and I just want to let you know that it turned out to be a super treat! This man was inspiring, fascinating, well informed and sharp. In addition to this he combined (in a very attractive & visual way!) all actual aspects regarding Sales followed by Marketing.
In short: My colleague and I have had a wonderful time! Thank you! Kind regards from the centre of Amsterdam.
Joe D Adams, Chairman Group 11 & Leaders Forum 6
“Frank Furness spoke to my Academy for Chief Executives Group 11 meeting and received the highest score of the year – 9.5. Many members described this as a magical learning day and were euphoric in their praise for Frank as a speaker both from the stand point of delivery as well as content.
From my point of view, as Chairman for Group 11 and former National Sales Manager and Managing Director of Encyclopaedia Britannica, I can say with complete confidence that Frank Furness is as good as it gets when he is on the stage delivering his message to his sales orientated audience.
He is humorous, charismatic and completely knowledgeable on his subject. He is quite simply, completely professional and outstanding value.
Paul du Toit, MD the Congruence Group
"Frank, congratulations on a great presentation on day 2 of the Dutch Convention in Amsterdam - the time always seems to whizz by when you're on stage, and your tips are always invaluable. If you had been given twice the time it probably would not have been enough. We need to get you to an upcoming convention in South Africa - and I believe nothing less than a pre-con would do you justice. Thanks and well done!"
