I just wanted to take a moment to thank you once again for the leadership training you held at VPE. I was recently promoted again since our last conversation, my new position is Plant Manager for all of VPE.
If I had to point to a single event that led me down this road of opportunity, I would have to give the credit to your leadership class. Your class provided us with the opportunity to communicate with a solutions based mindset that is positive. The other really important aspect of the training was the development of soft skills. I am of the opinion that this skill is the most important and first skill that should be mastered if you are going to lead. Lastly, the one important element of the training that cannot be overstated, is the exposure some people received as a result of the training structure.
The people that usually see opportunities are the ones we know about.
Again, thank you for the training and the impact it left on our organization.
Plant Manager, Sacramento
“I’d like to provide a recommendation for Michael Levin. He has been working with us on our sales and business strategies. He has made a significant positive impact on our business. I have had my business for over 16 years and my sales team has never been stronger.
He has helped us redefine our sales processes, trained our staff and even personally helped us secure new business. His collaborative sales process has tremendously benefited our staff and raised our level of professionalism.
He has also helped facilitate communication and processes between the different functions of our business. His efforts have helped unify our sales, operations and administrative teams.
Michael’s willingness to not only train our staff but participate on sales calls goes well above and beyond what I would have expected in a consultant. I would highly suggest, if you are looking to improve your business and sales results, you consider using Michael and his team.”

He’s a super guy and it truly shows!

“I would like to recommend Michael to help you develop your business and marketing strategies.
Michael has helped me with my import/export consulting business. Even though he didn’t have a background in this industry, he was able to work with me to help me develop new concepts to significantly grow my business.
What made it great is we not only developed plans that will work, they were tailored to fit my strengths and skill sets. He has even provided me referrals to help me get new business.”
President, White Song,Incorporated
“I would like to highly recommend Michael Levin as a speaker. He delivered a presentation on overcoming client objections at our Women in Consulting-East Bay satellite meeting. He is a dynamic speaker who relates to his audience easily. The professional women of our group thoroughly enjoyed his talk.
Michael provided new perspectives that he developed around selling and handling objections and gave us tools that will be effective in helping us build revenue. His business and consulting experience gave him tremendous credibility with our members; his successes as a coach and sales executive are testimony to his knowledge.
Women in Consulting (WIC) is a professional organization that helps consultants build skills through networking, support and education in best practices. Michael has already been booked for other WIC events because of the insights he brings to our membership. He also adds energy, inspiration and a little comic relief, all of which were very welcome.”

“I strongly recommend hiring Michael Levin as a public speaker for your company and your clients. I have had the pleasure of attending several of Mike’s presentations.
He has a warm, friendly style that engages the audience well. He is an expert in the areas of sales, marketing, entrepreneurialism, product development and general wealth building.
Speaking in public effectively is truly a rare skill and art. I know your clients will enjoy the experience and give excellent feedback on any of Mike’s presentations, courses or workshops.”

Collaborative, empathetic and highly effective, Michael’s LACE method for handling objections smoothes the sales relationship for us “sales-phobes” and produces results that work for everyone involved.
“Thank you so much for your great presentation. You got rave reviews from everyone I talked to. Comments ranged from “He was so genuine” to “He had some great ideas” to “He was the best speaker we’ve had in a long time”.

“I would like to provide a recommendation for Michael Levin. He has been guiding me on an idea for a new product that I would like to take to market.
Michael has helped me in many ways. First of all, and most importantly for me, he has kept me on track. It is very easy to waste time and money going in the wrong directions. He has saved me a tremendous amount of time by keeping me focused and pointed in the right direction. He also saved me a great deal of money helping me to avoid spending needlessly and providing me methodologies to reduce my costs.
One example I never knew of was how to protect my idea while not having to go through the expense of a full blown patent.
Michael has also provided me marketing and sales ideas that I had not considered. These options helped to provide additional revenue opportunities for me while also minimizing my financial risk.
If you are an entrepreneur who has a small business or are looking to start a business, I would highly recommend Michael to help you. You will get your money’s worth.”
“I’d like to provide a strong recommendation for Michael Levin as a Business and Sales Consultant. My company, The Full Plate, has two retail outlets offering Ready-To-Cook and Read-To-Eat meals. I wanted to launch my line in grocery stores.
While I had significant experience in this arena as a former senior Safeway executive, I knew I needed help. Michael has come in with his unique brand of consulting. He has not only consulted, he has been with me every step of the way.
He helped me put together my plan for the launch and he has helped me get this venture off the ground. We have made joint calls with distributors that have been incredibly successful. We have accomplished so much more than I could have hoped for in a very short period of time.
Michael’s business acumen and sales methodologies have put me on a path for a successful and profitable rollout. I’d like to highly suggest, if you want to take your business to the next level, contacting Michael and finding out how he can help you”
President and Founder, The Full Plate
Michael’s leadership philosophy and methodology have greatly helped our employees feel more empowered and take greater ownership. They are now leading critical initiatives to improve our company and our processes.
As well, it’s a pleasure to see improvement in our communication amongst our teams and how we work better together to find collaborative solutions.

Michael is a truly pleasure to work with. Here’s two short comments from the app to supplement (and to also keep this note brief): “Michael is a solid speaker. [He] talks high level concepts but [also] provides stories as an example and high action item lists.” And, “[Michael offered a] top-notch presentation with invaluable insight.”
I appreciate that Michael comes down from the stage and talks with the audience, and also creates an interactive presentation that isn’t PowerPoint driven. It’s about him connecting with his audience.
I’m looking forward to Michael speaking at future events for us. As noted above, I was responsible for running our four days of conference education. As you can imagine, it’s a lot to run. Michael certainly did his part to make my life easier! I’d highly recommend Michael as a speaker for your next event.
