Testimonials

“CEO level delegates attending the inaugural Abacus International Online Travel Leaders Retreat rated Frank Furness as one of the most appreciated contributors at the event held in Macau on 4-6 July 2008. His presentation not only provided thought provoking new perspectives for online Travel Agencies, the delegates attending felt that many of the tactics and techniques for online marketing could be implemented almost immediately. We greatly appreciated Frank’s contribution to the Retreat and with its sound mix of robust thinking and practical advice and would welcome him as a presenter at our events in the future.”

~Robert Bailey, President and CEO, Abacus International Pte Ltd

My team was left highly motivated for the business year ahead, driven, and armed with tools to help realise action plans. Testament to the impact of Frank’s session, is that once back in the office, dealing with daily work issues, the team continues to pull on the resources and motivation gained from Frank. I would highly recommend Frank – he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

“Frank Furness spoke to my Academy for Chief Executives Group 11 meeting in December 2007 and received the highest score of the year – 9.5. Many members described this a magical learning day and were euphoric in their praise for Frank as a speaker both from the stand point of delivery as well as content. From my point of view, as Chairman for Group 11 and former National Sales Manager and Managing Director of Encyclopaedia Britannica, I can say with complete confidence that Frank Furness is as good as it gets when he is on the stage delivering his message to his sales orientated audience. He is humorous, charismatic and completely knowledgeable on his subject. He is quite simply, completely professional and outstanding value.”

~Joe D Adams, Chairman, Group 11 & Leaders Forum 6 THE ACADEMY FOR CHIEF EXECUTIVES

While working on the details of our 2008 LEADERSHIP programme, Mr. Furness was suggested to us by various people. Were they ever right! After a brief, but very pleasant and ‘to the point’ telephone conversation, I was fully confident that Frank was definitely ‘our man’. Seen his extensive background in sales, we asked Mr. Furness to take care of the ‘HSMAI Leadership in Sales Event on March 13th 2008. Frank delivered that afternoon an upbeat, dynamic and cutting edge presentation on sales & marketing. Filled with humour, impressive facts, ‘peaking’ pictures and many, many practical ‘sales tools’. Afterwards he left the audience with several dedicated websites full of practical tools for their review and use. The feedback we got from our members was nothing less then superb! I therefore can only strongly advise any organization (looking for the ‘latest in sales & marketing’) to contact or even better: secure’ Mr. Frank Furness for their programme.
