What do clients say about George Torok and his presentations?

The first time we met was at a presentation you did last year. We were so completely impressed that we just had to have you do a seminar for our company.

As you know, franchising can be a challenge at best. We are always looking for ways to keep our franchisees on top of customer service and marketing. Sometimes we all forget the simple things that matter most.

Your approach to marketing is stimulating and combined with your humorous delivery, is very effective. All our franchisees were extremely impressed and left our conference with renewed energy and ideas. Each and every one has set new goals for their businesses and went away fully committed to increasing their sales.

George. I can't thank you enough. You have made a difference. What more could I ask?

Grant Cats
Wine Not Customer Wineries

To be able to keep the attention of 150 real estate sales representatives and managers for over 90 minutes, you have to be knowledgeable and you have to be convincing! George, you were that and more. Our people got your message that marketing one's self is a continuous and multi dimensional effort.

Duncan McLeod
Area Manager
Royal Lepage

I enjoyed you so much that I bought your book. I'm sure I will glean as much from it as I did from your speech.

Patricia McCain
McCain Employment Services Inc.

I usually have great difficulty sitting through most workshops without starting to fidget. I could have sat in your class and listened for untold hours. - my attention was totally caught by the way you made your points so quickly and with relevance to everyone in the class. Your "Marketing on a Shoestring" binder is a masterpiece - every time I look through it I discover new ideas and reinforcement.

Elaine Charal
Positive Strokes

The students will benefit from your suggestions and advice on how best to present themselves and their abilities to employers, colleagues and clients in the future. Comments from the MBA students, "excellent speaker - dynamic tools/ strategy" "George has a different view of the corporate world than I do, so I appreciate this disparate viewpoint."

Sandra McCance
Queens School of Business
MBA for Science and Technology

Thank you for your important contribution to both our Western and Eastern Retailer conferences this year. Our retailers greatly appreciated your meaningful ideas and insights and many commented that your presentation was the highlight of the conference.

Your presentations were both entertaining and informative giving our customers simple ideas to use every day to grow their business. Effective marketing is the key to success and your presentation will help our retailers reach their business goals.

LJS and Associates has been hosting a breakfast seminar annually for several years. The 2005 seminar was our "best ever" due to the exceptional presentation delivered by George Torok! His professional style and audience involvement made the meeting worthwhile for everyone. A dynamic speaker, George knows how to bring value to the audience so they have a definite take-away message, which they can begin to use.

It was most enlightening to hear you speak to our business students at the DeGroote School of Business. You delivered that message so well with your captivating stories, clear insights and self-effacing humour.

George, you did the best things that one can do for eager young minds. You engaged them, challenged them and showed them a path.

Paul Bates
DeGroote School of Business

I learned a lot in your seminar, which I have already started to apply. The comments from my CEO were. "Really! Unbelievable! Impressive! Tell me more…"

What you were able to "pack" into an hour was amazing and I just want to thank you for imparting your knowledge to me.

Donna Diebel
VP Sales & Marketing
The Gemini Group

I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at our "2005 Re/Max Kickoff." Your delivery was so engaging that I lost all track of time. By any measure you are a very effective speaker and educator.

Gioia Salvadori
Sales Representative
Re/Max West Realty Inc.

George, thank you for your powerful and personal presentation that you delivered to our national management team at our annual planning meeting. This was an important meeting for us. We have been encountering some frustrating obstacles. We needed to clarify and solidify our national strategy and allow for regional peculiarities. Most importantly - we needed our management team on board. We needed their minds, bodies and hearts.

George, you helped us do that. You presented sound marketing principles. You demonstrated examples of practical techniques that we can use now. And you inspired us with your stories, enthusiasm and humility. We have taken your messages and translated them into some early successes.

George, hiring you was one of the smartest things I did this year. I hope we can work together again soon.

Jeff Bond
Comcare Health Services

Sometimes we need to make decisions that make us uncomfortable. I admit that hiring you was my second choice. Due to medical reasons my first choice was unavailable. He strongly recommended you.

I wanted this national meeting for be just perfect. So naturally I was skeptical and cautious. Your manner, client referrals and published material helped to ease my concern. I was further swayed by your focus on identifying and clarifying our most important needs. Then you prepared a special program to do just that.

Your program and delivery exceeded my expectations. You were professional, personable and practical. Your information was bang-on. The workbook was first class. I enjoyed the way you made us laugh. I never had so much fun learning. You offered the right blend of valuable insights, personal challenge and practical ideas that we can implement.

Our people are good - and some of them have strong mindsets. I was amused at how effectively you handled some of the tough objections and moved the objector forward.

Most importantly - you helped move us light years forward on our presentation and marketing skills.

Bottom line: You delivered what I wanted and more. In hindsight and future-sight you are my first choice. I confidently look forward to working with you again.

Cristina Dee-Ong
Director, Marketing & Program Development
Complete Purchasing Services Inc.

Our group as you know consisted of "new kids on the block" as well as many "old timers". Your message encouraged everyone to think outside the box. Your delivery style combined the perfect mix of humour, audience involvement and outright enthusiasm.

Once again George, thank you for tailoring so much of your repertoire into a meaningful and mind-opening presentation.

Terry Barret
General manager
Marketing & Sales, Canada
LTV Copperweld

Thanks for the presentation. It was the reinforcement I needed to implement some of the tools you suggested to create a better marketing plan. Your presentation style was uplifting and lively, but still allowed for interesting interactivity, especially considering the audience. I will certainly recommend you to other organizations and look forward to bringing you back in the future

Kevin M. Andrews
President and CEO
Corpfinance International Limited

Any organization planning a similar event would be wise to consider your knowledge and expertise to complement their show.

Tony Gzik
Economic Development Officer
Haldimand County

Everyone who attended gained a greater insight into the importance of developing a well thought out marketing plan using the key marketing concepts you presented as well as the very practical ideas, examples and suggestions from your own extensive experience. Using case studies specific to our company's upcoming marketing initiatives certainly made the learning experience more relevant and real to everyone.

Jim Gibson
Director, Individual Marketing
The Empire Life Insurance Company

I found George to be a very informative enthusiastic and personable speaker who presented a number of very useful and worthwhile ideas. George was well organized and involved the audience in portions of his presentation to help reinforce the points he was making.

I highly recommend George as a speaker, facilitator or presenter.

Stephen M. Wood, B.A., CMA
Copeland Canada

This was the first time our group has used an outside facilitator. Your clear explanation of the Strategic Planning process helped everyone understand the mental process we had to go through as a group and what format the Business Plan should follow. I especially enjoyed your enthusiasm and humour in the presentation on Creative Thinking. This session was fun and it gave the newer people a chance to learn about our organization.

I thank you for your willingness to work with me on very short notice to plan and produce this very successful workshop. Your research on Habitat for Humanity impressed me and helped contribute to your acceptance by the members.

R.B. Simpson
Executive Director
Toronto Habitat for Humanity Inc.

The seminar was informative, had everyone involved and was stimulating. Your entertaining style disarmed the group, allowing everyone a great opportunity to witness the dynamics of learning and sharing information. Your complete understanding of the issues complemented your excellent and thoughtful presentation.

O. Roberts, C.P.P., CPPC. P. MRG(CIM) CAM
The York Region Board of Education

Although it was the second time I had heard your talk on the "Winds of Change" I was equally motivated and inspired to rethink my own business within the frames of reference you provided.

Rick Ludwig
Kitching-Steepe Funeral Home Limited

We were thrilled to have such a dynamic, interesting speaker.

Karen McHarg
Show Manager
Laurel Oak Marketing

I realize that you gave us the best part of a whole day seminar in a much shorter time frame.

Tery Ryan G.S.
The Mutual Group

I would like to thank you for your involvement in 'Bridges to Better Business'. As our keynote speaker you gave a very effective address. Comments back from the attendees were that they were motivated by your words and took away some valuable information and strategies.
