Jeff Pankoff and Todd Thiewes deliver presentations that feature a unique teaching style, which is both fun and interactive. Their goal is always to avoid the "talking head syndrome", leaving attendees wishing they were somewhere else entirely.

They challenge the room to think critically about their current business systems and processes (or lack thereof) and how they can implement behaviors, attitudes, and techniques into their daily activities when they leave.

This approach has earned many invitations to speak on topics of business development, sales management, sales, and leadership, both locally and nationally. They are available to speak on the following seminar topics featured below or, potentially, a custom topic.

I've been attending Sandler on a consistent basis since 2013. The Sandler training model has significantly helped me in both my professional and personal life to better communicate. In my professional life, I've utilized this system to make a better first impression and communicate to the customer that I don't want or expect anything other than a short informational meeting. It may not go any further than that. Executive presence and leveling the playing field have been two significant tools. Most important, just having a process and sticking to that process is valuable. Setting expectation in the "contract" stage has significantly reduced the "We'll have to think about it or "we're just not sure if this makes sense for our organization" objection. Most definitely I would recommend Sandler Training.
