Leah's Rave Reviews
"The effort and investment paid off with very good results. The processes used by BlitzMasters were well suited for our business model and harnessed our fragmented approach into a singularly focused and step by step sales strategy. And of course, Leah Darby did an excellent job in coaching the team."
"I liked the event. Very happy with the number of calls and opportunities. Good solid day. Loved Leah's energy."
"Leah was absolutely brilliant! Such a pleasure not having the usual IT-NERD(ish) trainers, but instead someone who could really perform and inspire."
"The Blitz Day was AMAZING! There was a lot of good energy and I felt like our reps really shined. It was great listening to them implement the strategies Leah gave them and hearing the excitement when a positive result was yielded. Major kudos to Leah! She was fabulous and we really enjoyed spending the day with her."
"WOW! Thank you Leah! To say that our partner, ImageTek, is very satisfied is a major understatement. By sponsoring a Blitz Experience, Xerox brought value to ImageTek as our Valued Reseller, and you were a big part of it. Again, thank you for coaching our partner, ImageTek, to lead the nation in Xerox NARS for calls and appointments. 41 appointments and counting! And over 600 calls! Way to help us set the bar high for everyone else in NARS! Everything is bigger in Texas, and you helped us make it that way in a Big Way!"
"The BlitzMasters day was a great success. Our BlitzMaster, Leah was fantastic. Our team of sales veterans truly appreciated her expertise and guidance. I am confident that the techniques and tools she shared with the team will become part of our sales member's regular routine - particularly leaving the "rock star" voice mail and script for handling objections."
"It was very good. Leah was great and the team had successes."
"Thank you for all your efforts on our Blitz. It went great! Everyone was bought in and Leah did a great job at training and motivating the team. We could not be happier with the results and will look to do again soon."
"Leah, thank you for leading a benchmark BlitzMaster event with the Pomeroy team. We are fired up at the potential the 30+ appointments will deliver. It was also evident that your 'Rock Star' voicemail technique exceeded all expectations."
"Leah, thanks for the hosting a very effective call campaign at Pomeroy; it eclipsed the results from any other vendor."
"The Blitz Experience was awesome! We secured 41 appointments and everyone is really energized. I had managers participate to 'lead by example', including myself. Leah did a great job. I was very impressed with her. Thanks!"
