"The biggest problem my salespeople face is this - We have a product that makes sense to most people, we're unique in our industry, we're best in class but our salespeople continue to sell on an intellectual level. People buy emotionally. Sandler gives them the ability to sell on an emotional level and make a lot more money along the way."

"I am exposing my team to a world of techniques and ideas through Sandler's experiences and reflective techniques.

"Donna Bak has been a pleasure to work with and has truly become a trusted advisor to Encon. She has the ability to adapt to various personality styles and make connections with everyone that she works with. Donna has helped many of our employees improve their communication skills, become better leaders, and achieve higher sales. I am very pleased with the results."

Bill Valus Principal/Managing Director

"I've had the sincere pleasure of working with Donna Bak and her partner Ed Schultek of Sandler Training for almost a year now. I'm attending their Leadership Training for Business Owners and Senior Executives program. During monthly meetings I learn best practices and discuss leadership concepts with executives from other organizations and industries. At monthly one-on-one sessions with Donna I focus on personal development, reinforcing what's learned in class and addressing issues pertaining to personal goals. The educational content is rich, the mentoring approach is personable and respectful, and the new knowledge and skills that I'm gaining are helping me to better achieve results for my company. My only regret is that I didn't know about Sandler earlier in my career!"

Sabrina Beck Vice President, Altek Electronics

"The biggest problem my salespeople face is this -We have a product that makes sense to most people, we're unique in the insurance industry, we're best in class according to everyone, but our salespeople continue to sell on an intellectual level. People buy emotionally. Sandler gives them the ability to sell on an emotional level and make a lot more money along the way."

Alex Horton Regional Sales Coordinator, Aflac

"I have worked with Ed in three Companies. In each case we wanted to develop the professional skills of our customer-facing staff, whether they were sales managers, clinical support professionals or customer support representatives. Ed took the time to assess our requirements and then provided us with tailored professional development courses, delivered to groups or individuals as appropriate. He was very quickly accepted and won the respect and engagement of his students and became a valuable resource for senior leadership in each company. Ed shares his experience and educates in a highly engaging manner. He is part of our team and important to our progress."

Ian Stevens, CEO

"Our Goal has been to double our business in five do this we had to move to a more consultative selling approach with our customers and distributors...we needed a consistent way to deliver our message to whomever we were talking to...and we needed to place a greater focus on responding to our customers' PAIN and not align ourselves towards only what we are selling. I like where our Sales Team is going with Sandler...we're getting better and I want our sales team to be the point of difference for Amesbury out there."

Jonathan Petromelis President & CEO, Amesbury

"Patients know they have choices, and they are demanding a better 'people experience' from healthcare providers. How do we meet that challenge? Donna Bak and the Sandler team have the answer: We must elevate the 'people experience' for both patients and internal staff. By following her plan for doing so, we can better position ourselves to withstand the many pressures that arise in today's medical field."

-- Glenn Elia, CEO of Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists

Alex S. Dziama, CPA, CVA Nicola, Yester & Company, P.C.
