Mario Nathusiasus, CEO - Cemaco

Your passion for customer service and developing employees was not only evident, but infectious. Your very relevant examples illustrated the how and why of paying attention to the details and left everyone with a renewed focus on going home and putting these principles into practice immediately. As a group of small business owners, your message certainly hit home and you instantly established credibility with your background of small business ownership.

John Venhuizen, CEO - Ace Hardware Corporation

Art Freedman has brought a new way of thinking to our retailers in Ireland. The education Art has brought to our conferences from his "real world" experiences and his passionate presentation works very well in our country. Art's energy has a way of not only inspiring the participants but also mobilizing them to ACT when they return to their business. When it comes to Customer Service, no one in the world I know of can present this message in a way that everyone can understand. When the participants leave, they have the confidence and knowledge, along with the inspiration to execute what they have learned.
