Prior to our meeting, Stu took the time to understand our business. He traveled in the field with several of our customers and tailored his presentation to our business…for our dealers. He was lively, engaging and extremely personable. A real asset to our meeting! We have already invited Stu back for next year’s annual Dealer Meeting…what higher compliment can you give!

“Stu Schlackman travelled to Ireland in April 2017 to run an afternoon session on increasing sales through character recognition for our product launch.  This was a very informative and at the same time entertaining workshop which really got our audience participating.  I’m sure it was a talking point for some time afterwards and helped our sales of skincare products.”

“Thank you for participating at the PIA Texas 2010 Convention as the keynote speaker for our luncheon. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and went away from the luncheon with some new skills and knowledge that hopefully will help them in dealing with their clients, as well as people in general.

For the remainder of the convention I heard people talking about what “color” they were! Not only was your presentation enlightening, but also refreshing. It was on a level that anyone could relate to, which is not always the case with keynotes. You were certainly a contributing factor to the great success of our convention.

Thank you again for your support of PIA Texas!”

“If you are looking to motivate your sales team and add a new dimension to their sales skills, Stu Schlackman’s personality styles workshop is a must. He had our team enthused, excited and eager to go out and apply his concepts.

By applying the principles learned in the workshop and clearly laid out in Stu’s book, “Four People You Should Know”, our team became much more effective at understanding how to build stronger relationships with their prospects and clients.

Our Associates have not stopped talking about the impact this knowledge has had on their interpersonal relationships.”

“Stu is one gifted teacher who can bring across his ideas very succinctly and clearly to his audience. His stint in Singapore was certainly a very memorable time for our industry. I accompanied him in his workshops with a few insurance companies especially the one at AIA.

All the participants gave him the ‘thumbs up’ for his sessions. They benefited greatly from his training and found the ideas about the 4 kinds of people very ‘revealing’. They feel very well equipped to handle different kinds of clients using different approaches to suit the client’s personality.

I would certainly recommend Stu to any companies who want to boost the performance of their sales people. Please book him now!”

“Stu…

The consensus of the attendees in your seminar was that this was the most informative and fun MCE class they had ever attended.

Not only did we discover OUR personality spectrum, it gave us useful tools in analyzing the personality traits of the people with whom we interact on a daily basis and clearly a better insight into what color guidelines our clients fit. I am now color coding all of my family, friends, associates, and more importantly, my buyers and sellers.

Your presentation was so refreshing…and unlike most seminars…we took something with us which will last a lifetime….not only for our real estate profession but in all of our relationships…

Thank you …. Thank you.. for sharing your wisdom & experience with us.”

“I wanted to let you know I was personally able to close a large deal 12/31 using …
your techniques.

This individual was a bright blue and recognizing that, enabled me to get this done. It was not a matter of facts I was able to show him it all came down to his blue characteristics and the relationship I was finally able to build.

We appreciate all your help!”

Joe Dan Rowland

Former Producer, Goldman-Sachs

As in all companies with limited budgets, training dollars for employees are at a premium. I manage an area of high technology in the telecommunications business, and our limited training dollars are typically allocated to technical training. This practice has created a widening gap in soft skill capabilities among our managers. Stu’s course helped bridge that gap.

Stu gears his materials and delivery to the audience, making the class pertinent to all who attend. He creates an environment that is effective, yet fun and informal. With his energy and sense of humor, Stu is a great motivator for the team, giving them the tools they need, and encouraging them to practice and build confidence.

In a company as customer-focused as ours, it is important that our managers know the guidelines for presenting their material and themselves effectively, whether they are selling, informing, or motivating. Stu’s course provided the foundation for them to present themselves in a professional manner. His passion for his subject matter is contagious.

Thank you so much for presenting at our Brown Bag. This was by far the best presentation we had so far. Your seminar would be great for team building.

The next time our department is interested in a team building, I will definitely suggest your program.”
