In our clients' own words

The success of our clients is what speaks volumes for us

When our clients are successful, we know that we've succeeded in our mission.

Samuel Hoff

Patti Engineering

Industry: Engineering

Samuel Hoff, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Patti Engineering, talks about how his company’s sales more than doubled after Sandler sales training. “In 2007, we were a bunch of really good engineers and really bad salespeople; now we’re the same good engineers but we’re a lot smarter about the sales process.” In 2007 the company did a little less than $3 million in business and spent $1.10 for every dollar it made. Last year it did $7.5 million in business and spent 88¢ for every dollar it made. “My personal income is seven times what it was in 2007,” says Hoff. “That’s living proof of the success of Sandler.”

This was one of the best seminars/training experiences I have participated in throughout my career. The content can be used in many aspects of daily life and also work very well with sales. I have already implemented some of the fundamentals that I learned in this course and the process works! This team of experts are some of the most well-spoken individuals I have learned from and they find ways to keep the seminar interesting and thought provoking.

There's a lot of "make it up as you go" in a startup company, but no startup can afford to wing it around sales communication when there are tried and true methods to learn from. Rick's knowledge of Sandler methods has been invaluable to our sales team for not only providing us with a common language to use with each other, but for accelerating our ability to generate sales with methods and insights that work. Rick helped to provide us with a solid foundation for growth, and went above and beyond to help us as a client to tailor insights for our own specific business needs and opportunities. Working with Rick has been well worth the investment!

Ken Harris

Health o meter

Industry: Healthcare

Ken Harris is Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Health o meter, which manufactures devices for the medical community. He describes his history with Sandler, which spans 15 years and four companies. “Sandler is the one process I’ve seen that puts customer behaviors and salespeople behaviors together to help the customer in a way that ends up helping the company.” Harris uses a sports analogy to describe the impact of a great system, whether in college sports or sales training: “In a college team, turnover is every four years by definition, yet dynasties exist because they have good systems. Sales is also a skill set that needs to be constantly honed and, for me, Sandler is the only method that provides that level of consistent and intimate training.”

I've worked with Rick for many years and have found him to be a solid sales leader...Rick has strong interpersonal skills and bonds easily with others. I recommend Rick for those seeking high-level selling skills where they can easily connect "real-world" sales challenges with the selling solutions Sandler Training provides.

Blain Tiffany, Vice-President Kaiser Aluminum

Just finished Foundations training and it was a powerful bootcamp. Truly first class training. Really looking forward to deeply refining and integrating what we learned into everyday interactions. Thought I came there for sales training and really found something much deeper and practical moving forward. The thing that help me choose my next step was talking with Rick. During the class Rob showcased it again and again reconfirming that I did make a great choice. What did they do? Gave little mini clinics and master classes that displayed what I was reading in the Sandler books and seeing online. Taking about kitchen sink here. From more effective questioning, setting up front contracts, taking pressure off, money, referrals, earning more deals and subtle tools added to the kitbag.

Roy Cook

Merrill Lynch

Industry: Financial Planning

Roy Cook, who works with Merrill Lynch to help clients strategize their retirement plans, explains his mindset when he started Sandler training. “When I was introduced to Sandler I didn’t think I had any problems,” he says. He did have problems, though, including the lack of a systematic approach to generating new business. “Sandler has a very logical, very cerebral approach to sales. I saw more than 20 percent growth in my business year after year. Some of that I attribute to the market, but a lot of it I attribute to the Sandler process, with me implementing it and working more efficiently.”

I've been in sales for 24 years and learned some great new techniques and met great people. I plan on implementing and using the Sandler system and investing in my team to take the training next year. Rick and Rob do a fantastic job explaining the system. I look forward to shortening our sales cycle and separating ourselves from the rest of the industry.

The sales training that I received from Sandler and the guys at MP Solutions helped me shorten my sales cycle, have better conversations with my prospects and client, and expedite the growth of my business in the Cleveland market. I would recommend them to anyone in and around Northeast Ohio who is looking to take the next step in their business and make sales fun again!
