Your program at NSA Colorado was incredibly helpful.  I have been singing your praises and marvelling that you would share that information so generously.

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.

William J. Brunkhardt – President, Entrepreneurs Organisation -Kansas City

 

"EO-Kansas City was fortunate enough to have a long visit with Frank Furness recently. As president of the Chapter and one who attends EO events globally, I can honestly say that Frank's presentation is right on target. As entrepreneurs we must take advantage of the best time management technologies and services. Frank provides us a wealth of time management and cost saving techniques that we all can use.

Frank is charming, dynamic and full of energy... Clearly of EO calibre! I recommend him to any and all Chapters!

CEO level delegates attending the inaugural Abacus International Online Travel Leaders Retreat rated Frank Furness as one of the most appreciated contributors at the event held in Macau.  His presentation not only provided thought provoking new perspectives for online Travel Agencies, the delegates attending felt that many of the tactics and techniques for online marketing could be implemented almost immediately. We greatly appreciated Frank’s contribution to the Retreat and with its sound mix of robust thinking and practical advice and would welcome him as a presenter at our events in the future.

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.
Joe D Adams, Chairman Group 11 & Leaders Forum 6

Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI Holland

 

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 on March 13th 2008. 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 then 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.
