Sam Silverstein Text Reviews
. . . your session was "absolutely wonderful." Not only did you do an excellent job on the program you were hired to do, but you also stepped in for a last-minute cancellation for us, at your suggestion! I can't tell you what a pleasant relief it was.
Teri Gallagher - Consorta, Inc.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for presenting at our underwriting department meeting. Building relationships is an integral part of our business, and I know that our staff found the information and activities very enlightening.
Susan Hughes, VP of Regional Operations - Prudential Financial
We are a tough crowd. . . . However, your keynote session was a GREAT success with our members. Your ability to bring the theme of our event into your presentation kept our attendees grounded in the possible.
Anne Gardener, Dir. of Member Services - North Virginia Assoc. of Realtors
We’ve hired Sam to come speak to our leaders multiple times. Sam knows accountability and how to help an organization build their culture around accountability. Sam has a unique take on accountability that positions him to help a company transform into a better organization.
Doug Sterbenz, Executive Vice President - Westar Energy Inc
Sam’s performance on the platform as a keynote speaker validated the value of our company culture, affirmed its role as a compass on a sea of uncertainty in health care and identified accountability as the characteristic that sets an organization apart in the marketplace. The wisdom he shared will help produce positive outcomes for any business.
Beecher Hunter, President - Life Care Centers of America
I’d like to thank-you, Sam, for presenting the keynote “No More Excuses” and “Building Your Accountable Organization,” during the AASP-MN Annual Meeting. Over two hundred automotive service professionals, representing nearly 100 of the industry’s best companies attended the seminars offered. Those who attended raved about your presentation, gave high ratings and found the time spent networking particularly valuable.
Judell Anderson, CAE, Executive Director - Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Minnesota, INC.
Sam delivered a concrete message to our international audience of very accomplished folks – Sam’s style, presence and connection with the audience was a grand slam!
Nancy J. Martini, President & CEO - PI Worldwide
Sam led our Board on a two-hour discussion relating to the creation of a culture based on accountability — not only within their respective organizations but within the TEDC as a whole. He commanded the room with his insight and wisdom. To say our group was dazzled would not be an overstatement. As a result of that retreat, we brought him back to lead a similar workshop at our 2016 Winter Meeting. Now, many TEDC Members are now using Sam to help them achieve their goals in their respective communities.
Carlton Schwab, President/CEO - Texas Economic Development Council
Employee turnover in our industry is very high. Our turnover last year was 32% but two other major companies in our industry had turnover of 100% and 300% respectively. I credit our lower turnover to the quality of the organizational culture that we created by working with Sam Silverstein.
Vince Lubben - WirelessWorld
You were enthusiastically received by nearly 1,500 remodelers who were eager to hear what you had to say, then return to the worksite to put your words into action… I wish I could say that all of the over 200 speakers I work with annually were as conscientious and fun to work with as you.
National Association Of Home Builders / Remodelers Council
Your keynote address was inspiring, funny and one of the most entertaining I’ve ever heard. I have received numerous comments from attendees and they seem to agree that it was one of the best ever! Coming from this group, that is quite a compliment.
Executive Director - Optimists International
As the area’s largest residential real estate company, we recently brought in Sam Silverstein–twice in a 12-month period—to address a large group of associates from our 19 St. Louis area offices. His first presentation, “No More Excuses” contained such a powerful message it became a mantra last year among our senior leadership team. Sam’s second program, “Non-Negotiable”, was equally well-received by our Associates and leadership. With both programs he effectively framed for our group of independent contractors the value of accountability in their personal and professional lives.
