Sales Training and Appointment Setting services
Tired of making sales calls? Our team of professional callers and business developers use their years of experience and today’s technology to bring your sales team qualified opportunities.
The difference between a good sales team and a great sales team is locked in the relationship between the company culture/mission and their leadership. We help small businesses realize their true culture and show them how to find rockstars who fit that culture. Then we teach them how to motivate and inspire their team to be the absolute best versions of themselves.
What our clients are saying:
John has wonderful leadership and management skills. He really understands people, and what motivates them. He has great ideas and furthermore leads the charge to see that they come full circle. A transformative individual and a visionary.
John's energy and enthusiasm is contagious. He brings life and a positive vibe wherever he goes, whatever he does. He's a joy to be around and to work together with. He's been successful, because he treats people with respect and listens to their needs and ideas - a real team player and leader with the upmost integrity.
John is a transformational, intelligent thought leader. He just thinks differently from anyone I know. Somehow, he sees opportunities and angles that no one else sees and before anyone else sees them. His advice has taken our small family business to the next level and beyond. This style of coaching is amazing because I can get him anytime I need him. We do not need to have a scheduled meeting every month. He is always right in my pocket and I talk to him several times a week about just about anything. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Derrick and Jeanell Morgan
John was quite supportive of both me and the Delaware County Community Foundation, where he served on my DCCF President's Advisory Board. He was an effective advocate for our Foundation and created many opportunities for us, to garner new funds to the Foundation. He gave us many interesting leads (new contacts for possible funds to be donated to the DCCF) and created a fund of his own, at the Foundation. I'm quite pleased and, hopefully, supportive of John Durso, who has always come through for me, as Chair and, most importantly, for the Foundation.

I have had the pleasure of working shoulder to shoulder with John at 3 different financial institutions. The tactics that he creates are creative and drive new customer acquisition unparalleled to other institutions. He excels at recognizing and developing talented employees and his ability to teach managers how to motivate and inspire their teams is extremely valuable.Â If your organization has managers looking to become true leaders, bankers who need to learn revolutionary techniques, and especially if the customer experience is your top priority, then John is your man.
John is an incredible leader who is extremely creative, kind, and truly driven to succeed. He is an excellent mentor, motivator, and connector. His positive energy rubs off on everyone around him and he has a way of getting the best out of teams. He is a rare find, and someone who can transform your organization.
