Global MFG Corporation

Mr. Faranda keynoted our global convention of 180 SENIOR EXECUTIVES from 51 COUNTRIES. He presented a two-hour keynote entitled, “Global Realities…..Selling in the new millennium” and received a standing ovation which is very unusual for executive programs. All of the executives received a copy of his new book, “The GLOBAL Sales Professional” after the program. In addition, he was asked to keynote again in the evening after the awards banquet for our 300 guests–the executives and their spouses. He presented his inspirational program, “FOOTPRINTS” and once again received a standing ovation. Incredible!

Metals ASN Executive

To my metals executive colleagues: With the latest on China, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you about a program we had at our general membership meeting last week in Myrtle Beach. Tom Faranda (our highest rated speaker at nine of our previous engagements) presented his newest program, “China and YOUR Bottom Line…China’s Gameplan”. Our Participants Evaluations rated him a 4.5 out of 5. This was a full morning session and he has done his homework. He explains China’s game plan for the next decade, its potential for an internal meltdown and how to compete against them. The session drew a packed audience and included many spouses. No topic could be more timelier and I seriously recommend you do yourself a favor and explore Tom’s availability today.
