Lee Avinger – CEO, JM Lee Inc.
I feel compelled to tell you that I think you are simply awesome! I've never met anyone like you before. There are a lot of people out there professing to be coaches and consummate sales professionals but in my humble opinion, you are the man. :)
You are inspiring, intelligent, full of energy and enthusiasm, and always making yourself incredibly available. Even though you are incredibly busy and successful you are answering emails, jumping on the phone, and going above and beyond what you promise to deliver. You make me feel how I am sure all of your clients feel, that they are the most important person on your list.
I am sure you must you hear accolades like this all the time, but I felt it was time for me to pass this along. With your help, 2010 will be my best year ever!
Lori Sperber – CEO, GatewayCreativeGroup

Rita Hyland – Founder & Owner, BreakThrough Coaching Inc.
Eric spoke at our company retreat this week and was terrific. His passion, energy and knowledge were contagious! He immediately made a meaningful connection with my employees which had them focused on his presentation throughout. As soon as I got home, I started reading his newest book. It is easy to see why it rose to #1! Eric's impact on our company will last well beyond his 2 hour presentation. I think that is the greatest recommendation anyone can give.
Rob Kennedy – President, The Hoop Group Inc.
Every successful sales person and/or company needs to improve their selling skills and increase their production, especially in what we all like to call "challenging times." Sometimes it is necessary to go outside your comfort zone and look for someone to help enhance those needed skill sets in the quest to become exceptional. I just wanted to thank you for being that "Trusted Sales Guru Advisor" for my company. My instincts were right. Eric, you did a fantastic job during our sales session. I feel like you supplied tremendous value along with some everyday useful tools that we are all working hard to apply. I’ve noticed an immediate impact on my sales team and we hope to work with you again in the near future.
Peter R. Strauss - President, Second Generation Mortgage Group, LLC
I hired Eric to work with the professional staff at Cowan, Gunteski & Co., P.A. He developed and delivered the "Best Year Ever" training program. He took the accountants through twelve modules that focused on their personal development, as well as skills in the areas of presenting, writing, listening, questioning, and new business development. As a result, the Cowan team was prepared to deliver on their promise to provide an exceptional client experience. In addition, its marketing efforts were enhanced because the team understood the importance of developing a relationship before asking for business. I highly recommend Eric to any company that wants to see a tangible difference in their team and increased profitability. He is a highly motivated speaker that takes the time to ensure that everyone is invested in the training and walks away with the skills necessary to succeed
Eileen Monesson – Principal, PRCounts, LLC
I first hired Eric in 2005 to kick-off our annual sales meeting. He delivered his “Best Year Ever” keynote to our sales organization and (perhaps not so coincidentally) that year we went on to have our “Best Year Ever! “. The following year we hired Eric on a quarterly basis to inspire and motivate our sales teams. Again, we went on to achieve another “Best Year Ever! ” . Challenged with the slumping economy last year, we recognized that it was time to get back in touch with the “Chief Inspirational Officer”. With that in mind, we again hired Eric to bring his high energy sales message to our troops at our January Kickoff Meeting. Since then, we have been putting his words into action. Our team has been adapting to our changing sales environment, prioritizing their sales opportunities, better managing their time and driving sales to what we expect to be another “Best Year Ever”.
Chris McGuigan, President, The Beacon Group
I met Eric Taylor in 2005. In all my dealings with Eric, as a friend and in business, he has been extremely professional and always willing to go the extra mile for people. I approached Eric in March of 2010 to do a joint business seminar with him. It turned out to be an unbelievably successful event (for both of us) more than 150 people attended. Going forward, I know that Eric will continue to go that extra mile for everyone he meets or does business with. I highly recommend you explore what he can do for your business."
Mitchell Nelson - Dynasty Advisors LLC
Eric’s intelligence, passion and drive come through in everything he does. He is great at masterminding possibilities and then turning the possibility into reality… In short, why I love working with Eric is when he makes a commitment, he follows through. In today’s world that is a rare commodity. Thanks Eric"
Sharon Sayler - Co-owner, Impression Engineers
In a world of me, myself and I’s, Eric Taylor is all about you! He practices what he preaches and that is what got me to sign up for his Presentation Skills Program. I knew I had a wonderful product to sell but I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t making more sales? My presentation was all wrong. Eric coached me and helped me understand that the first thing people were buying was me. Once my prospects bought me, they began to buy my products. Eric helps you believe in yourself, set goals and develop the self – confidence that helps you find joy in selling. Even if you are looking for work Eric can help you develop the greatest skill set you have – yourself."
Jack Miller - Owner, Final Cuts Gifts & Awards
Eric Taylor has demonstrated his skills to me over and over again. We met initially over 7 years ago in 2002, and have partnered on many projects since then.

I highly recommend working with Eric in just about any capacity."

Caress Kennedy - President, Career Blazers
When I moved into Eric Taylor’s old office in the late 1990s, I had hoped that some of his incredible energy would linger during my occupancy. Eric is among the most inspirational and positive people I have had the pleasure of knowing. From Eric, I have learned: ~ A methodical, practical approach to time management and goal setting/attainment; ~ Techniques to network genuinely and effectively; ~ Subtle, yet powerful secrets to profitable entrepreneurship; ~ Surefire ways to stay energized, focused, and motivated; ~ The incredible impact of positivity. Eric played a huge role as a key presenter at a job-search summit I organized in 2009. I recommend Eric, without reservation, to anyone who could use a dynamic coach, relentless motivator, or engaging speaker."
Robert Mandleberg - Owner, The Creative Edge
Eric was instrumental in helping us train our club service staff into selling themselves and our services, thus increasing our ancillary revenue.

Since last year, I sharpened my presentations, phone messages and motivated me to more effectively inspire my own sales people."
