“I had the privilege of spending two day with Les at Sales Manager Boot Camp. In my new sales management role it was beneficial beyond words to spend with Les and tap into his years of valuable experience and insight for recruiting, training, compensation, running sales meetings and much more. For anyone seeking validation of their direction and plans, or for those who want to start out on the best foot, I would recommend Sales Managers Boot Camp with Les” December 29, 2010

“In attending Les’ recent Sales Management Boot Camp, I took away several different ideas on how to assess, mature and grow my sales team into a professional/world-class sales organization.
I particularly appreciate the fact that Les has continued our dialogue AFTER the training, continuing to assist me with scheduled check-ins/conference calls.” December 29, 2010
