Attendee Comments – Sept. ’06 – Portland

“Most workshops are geared around the instructor or not directly related to the field you’re in. I feel this was the best workshop that I’ve ever been to. It was tailor made to auto sales and each individual and class! He didn’t even try to sell us his books or tapes! As a matter of fact, I don’t even know if he has any. There wasn’t any hidden agenda.”
Jason Coughlin, Sales Vancouver Mazda/Dodge

“This was my 9th year of attending this workshop. I have attended every year at least once and two times at least one year. I attend lots of other training but this is the only one I attend year over year and promote to all the new sales people that I meet. Good Job Michael!!”
Randy May, Internet Sales manager – Dick’s Country Dodge

“I’m 56 years old. I wish I had this class when I was 20!”
Bob Greig, Sales – Dick’s Country Dodge

“My expectations were to spend all our time overcoming objections. When that didn’t happen you can guess my feelings. This is training I’ve had over and over, not that that’s bad, but my mistake was building an expectation from a short period of time that Michael stated he was about. Word tracts for overcoming objections was the only reason I came. I do not feel I took anything away in that specific category.”
Aaron Weeks, Sales – Gresham Nissan/Subaru

“Very interesting! I received a lot of awesome word tracts to assist me in my auto sales career!”
Jason Panah, Sales Rep. – Alan Webb’s Vancouver Mazda/Dodge

“Michael was great! He makes it fun to learn. Definitely not like high school. I would have been asleep by 10 am if it had been. I got a lot of useful techniques and information and would definitely re-attend. Awesome course and another bright point was that it included the audio and workbook resources!”
Brandon Culp, Salesman – Alan Webb’s Vancouver Mazda/Dodge

“This class touched me on an emotional level which doesn’t happen very often. This class also gave me techniques and ideas I have never even thought of. Amazing!”
Michael Keene, Salesman – Gresham Nissan/Subaru

“Everything was great and insightful. Michael gave us a lot of examples and answered all of our questions in detail! It was an awesome course! I’ll be back next year for sure.”
Melissa Farrens, Sales – Alan Webb’s Vancouver Mazda/Dodge
