Course Evaluations
One attendee noted, “These classes are critical to show customers and partners leadership by leaning-in and leading from the front now and in the future.”

Users:
“Leadership begins with great presentations, team building, collaboration and frankly being organized. The Procert gave me all these tools and much more to be a better CTO leader.” J.L

“Meetings are the bane of my business, however, nothing gets done without them. I needed skills and ideas to make meetings and business communications faster, reducing costs and frankly, much better. Virtual Pro did that - thanks.” M.G CEO

”This is the best course for better management communications – period.” K.E

Vendors:
“The class accelerates our conferencing and collaboration revenues reducing the sales cycle by demonstrating to our customers we are committed to user ‘driver training’ to help them make better presentations and use cases of our solutions.” D.T.

“I have been selling conferencing for a long time and so tired of hearing stories of the old conferencing system going unused because users aren’t really trained. That is, they try it and fail, especially C-levels, the course gives me a real competitive-edge showing we are committed to the customer now and in the future.” R.C.
New Recommendations:

"Tom and I developed and delivered more than a dozen virtual webinars on social media, virtual selling and marketing strategies. Tom is an excellent course designer, developer and importantly has great delivery and virtual presentation skills. I would highly recommend him for any virtual presentations including investor pitch, virtual selling, virtual events/sales professional as well as highly technical subjects including AI. His book on AI - MindMeld has been called the best business book on AI yet written. He can really help you be the best."
Evan Kirstel #1 Social Media in AI, Retail Tech and many other B2B markets.
Tom has been involved in the Rockies Venture Club for many years at one time assisting us with our social media and insightful thought leadership blogs. He also attended many monthly meetings listening to hundreds of startup pitch presentations.
 
Tom and I team-taught the section in the RVC Hyperaccelerator program five times on Sales, Go-to Marketing and Marketing to more than 50 companies. We also share the critical concern that marketing is #1 cause of startup failure and success. Tom is a great course developer, engaging presenter and thought leader and would highly recommend his Virtual Event/Sales Professional courses to any startup, business or anyone wanting to make their business plan presentation to investors and others get "pitch perfect."
