Consultant / Facilitator

"I am sure this is quite common for you and bordering on redundant, however, I feel I have to say once again: 'THANK YOU.' Your ability to connect with the agents right from the start kept them engaged and left them wanting more. In your ongoing work to help State Farm and other businesses to 'Execute or be Executed,' I would welcome the opportunity to share our experience with them on how impactful and relevant you and your message are. Thanks for your commitment to success and for sharing it without our group."
"I could only be so lucky to have you as a client! It was a pleasure meeting you today and left me with quite an impression. Brilliant! Futurist! Inspiring! Where do I start? Sam, I never go to the annual planning conferences my company offers to agents. I’ve been an agent for 20 years and have always planned for my following year with a close group of successful agent friends located in other regions of the country. The last planning conference I attended was over ten years ago. This year was to be like all others…that is until I saw Sam Geist as the keynote speaker. Wow! You didn’t disappoint! You left our group with more ideas to take back to better our agencies than could have been expected."
"You reminded us that while planning and intentions are all very good, the ultimate reward goes to those who execute most effectively. In order to achieve what we are trying to accomplish, we must have higher performance standards and expectations than ever before. Your message gives us clarity about the tasks ahead. Thank you for your passion around your subject and willingness to challenge all of us toward a higher level of performance. I look forward to working with you again in the near future."
