TELUS would love to have her keynote again as she was instrumental to the event’s success. We highly recommend having her as a part of any speaker lineup.”P.

“We contracted Sandy Gerber to help strengthen our BC Account Manager’s sales acumen during our Sales Retreat. As the featured speaker, Sandy was energetic, fun, engaging and inspiring. Her presentation was filled with practical tips and lacked much of the unsubstantiated hype and catch phrases that too often accompanies sales training. She did her homework and came with an analysis of our current Rogers Radio footprint on the web and offered some suggestion to improve our messaging. I believe the content will help our Account Managers better serve their clients going forward.”C. LetawskyMarket Sales Manager, Rogers Radio

The material you taught was extremely appropriate, highly relevant, insightful and refreshingly different. Your creativity as a marketer and the communications insight you brought to the presentation spoke volumes about you and your company. I do hope that we can continue to build upon the relationship we have started, our team at Kwantlen Polytechnic University has much to gain.”R.
