John Boyens is an excellent sales coach, mentor, and guide. He has a keen ability to ascertain a person’s areas of strength and challenge after just one conversation. John offered excellent tactical and strategic advice in a series of sessions with my new sales director, and he did a great job of staying in touch with me throughout that engagement, making sure that I was receiving the value that I expected. I felt like we got 2 for the price of 1 since I learned so much as well!
John really knows his stuff and knows how to deliver it to others in a way they can powerfully leverage for their own benefit. I look forward to working with John again in the future!

Dear John,

From the first time I heard you present on a recorded webinar, I knew we had to engage your services for our Organization, and I am so glad we did. The feedback on the different tools you have put together for us and the variety of the live training sessions you have conducted have been five-stars across the board. Here are just a few of the written comments we have gotten back after your sessions.

  • John was a great presenter and the team I believe took lots away from the presentation. – Franchisee Operations Manager
  • John, the feedback I received has been very positive and I have many takeaways that we can revisit in the future, I look forward to working with you more in the future and seeing you at the convention. – Neil, Franchise Owner
  • Thank you for joining us today. Great presentation! Our team provided great feedback. – Scott, Franchise Owner
  • Thank you so much for today’s training with the field team as the feedback from it was fantastic! The excitement and eagerness they showed to get this information to the owners was exactly the response we were hoping to have. – Don, Franchisor SMB Manager
  • I wanted to reach out to you and thank you so much for your presentation at the recent management meeting for the Wireless Zone. As you know I have been with Scott and Neil now for 9 years. In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to sit in on many speakers, I have to say you were the best speaker we’ve ever had. The information that you provided us, sales tips and tricks were phenomenal. I’ve always struggled with past speakers to hold my attention and be able to retain the information that they were giving, with your presentation I was able to take SO much away from it! Thank you again for a great meeting, I look forward to talking with you in the future! – Bethany, Franchisee Store Manager

Over the past year we have heard similar glowing reviews from our Field Team, other Franchisees and Senior Level Executives from our Parent Company. There is no doubt that your professionalism, sales expertise and your ability to present that knowledge in a way that people gravitate to has made a measurable positive impact on our developing SMB Program.

In short, we would not have the growth or overall performance of our SMB program had it not been for the help you have provided. As a testament of how strongly we feel about this, we are already looking at what the opportunities are to engage your services for the next year to ensure our program continues the strong upward trend that it is currently on. Thank you again for being a big part of our program’s success.

 

Sincerely,

Michael Broe

John Boyens led the sales keynote session at our software users conference, and we received excellent feedback from attendees. Our audience really appreciated the customization of his presentation to their industry and the specific sales objections they face, which made the information he provided particularly relevant and actionable.

John has unique insight on sales processes and sales language, his delivery is engaging and our audience was captive throughout.

Aside from his presentation, I personally appreciated John’s responsiveness throughout the conference planning process; working with him was a pleasure.

We were extremely satisfied with John’s presentation and would recommend him as a speaker for any sales event or speaking opportunity in any industry.

Sincerely,

Churchill Stateside Group

This is way overdue however I wanted to say thank you for the job you did with the custom training for our sales team at Churchill Stateside Group. While we are in a somewhat complex industry you had no problem drilling into the key components of our business and applying your proven sales process to our product mix. Our team was impressed with your practical approach and unique insights into turning a cold call into an active prospect and ultimately a client. We have implemented several of your techniques including the use of needs based questioning, improved prospect research and the development of the VALU follow-up email template.

As a manager, your on-going follow up has been invaluable to me. I find myself constantly referring to the materials you provided. You clearly demonstrate what you teach by how you have built and maintained our relationship. I feel like a valued client which is exactly how I want our clients to feel about Churchill Stateside Group!

Again, many thanks for your work on our behalf.

All the best,

Bob Stout
National Director of Originations and Acquisitions

We had the pleasure of working with John and the Boyens Group. We brought John in to work with our
sales team, a group of seasoned professionals working in several markets selling IT professional services.
His guidance to our sales team was invaluable! John worked with the sales team to introduce new
concepts to help our people understand buying behaviors, how to properly craft value propositions,
better negotiation techniques, and how to research and sell against the competition in a region.
Multiple salespeople have given feedback that the workshops presented by John were the best they
had attended in their careers. We have implemented multiple aspects of John’s workshop into our sales
process and our team utilizes the tools John presented in their everyday workflows. The model and
concepts John introduced have worked out well and have accomplished the goals we set out at the
outset of his engagement.
We engaged John to help us find a sales professional that would fit our organization. John utilized his
professional network to bring us multiple candidates that were more than qualified for the role.
Ultimately, we settled on an individual presented to us by John that has up until this point exceeded all
of our expectation for an employee.
In addition to the sales training we have retained John to help consultant to myself and other executives
at LOGICFORCE. This sales consulting piece of the engagement has been of tremendous benefit to our
organization. John has on multiple occasions consulted on sales issues, initiates and questions and each
time has provided excellent feedback that was easy to implement
We look forward to continuing to work with John as he helps to further develop our sales team and
consult to our executive team.

 

Best,

Wiland, Inc.

Dear John:

 

I wanted to take a minute to sincerely thank you for the training program you and your team recently completed for the Sales and Client Services groups here at Wiland. To say that the team appreciated your product would be putting it mildly. Here are some examples of things people have conveyed to me since your visit:

  • “That was the most practical and helpful sales training I’ve ever had.”
  • “John was amazing, I don’t know how people keep their energy level that high for that long!”
  • “There were several things I learned in the training that I’ve already had success with when trying the techniques with clients.”
  • “I really liked the STAND FIRM technique – it works!”

 

I could go on and on but suffice it to say that you made a real impact here John and I see the teams’ confidence has expanded as a result of your workshop. That means a lot to me because as you know, confidence is a key in successful selling.

 

My management team and I have quickly agreed to some of our “favorites” from your course. These are being formally implemented in our sales approach for both the Client Services folks who are responsible for upselling existing clients and our New Business Development team who are out closing new contracts. These newly learned techniques will become ingrained in Wiland sales culture and I truly believe will make us better at our craft. So once again, thank you very much for all the time and energy you put into the Wiland sales training. I believe the up-front planning and the clear objectives we agreed to were very much accomplished, plus we had a lot of fun over the two days.

 

As our team expands and our need for another round of training emerges, we will be in touch with you for sure! Best wishes to you and your team, and all the best in the future John.

 

Sincerely,

Tom Murray
President, Wiland Cooperative Database Division
