I have had more positive feedback concerning your sessions, than anything we have ever done in the past.
Once again thanks for the invitation to the breakfast this morning. He was without doubt the most inspirational key note speaker I have ever heard. I would like to see his reaction to our industry with all its regulations and politics. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning.
The Harvey Norman computer store managers left Tony Gattari's presentation pumped! His raw enthusiasm and obvious credibility in the subject matter had made significant impact on their understanding of the profession they were in - SALES. There was no scepticism. There was no confusion. It was without doubt one of the more relevant presentations I've I heard on sales.

Tony is down to earth and people respond to that well. The staff was fascinated by the "real life" angle Tony uses.
Your professionalism and enthusiasm shone through in your presentation and the audience left feeling inspired. It's a pleasure to hear someone who has such clear convictions and such clarity in communicating them.

Tony Passion and enthusiasm for this is the driving force behind what we learned. Everything said came from experience and humility. There was no quick fix or empty promises simply common sense ideas with an outstanding approach.
