“GREAT SPEAKER, GREAT PRESENTER! Could’ve listened to him all day! Really good information on how to communicate with anyone and everyone!… He was hysterical. I loved it. He really got some energy going… I have been fortunate to hear him speak at a previous conference, and as usual found him entertaining and relevant… I thoroughly enjoyed Ross’s unconventional look at customer service. I will definitely use some of his ideas when I get ready to survey departments and end users in my new organization- short, sweet & with graphics!… Outstanding! I’ve already downloaded his books that he offers online and I couldn’t wait to see his 2nd session. I hadn’t planned on going, but after seeing him in the general session, I knew I had to see him again… The keynote speaker was the highlight of my conference, he was fantastic!!” Attendees, National Association of Purchasing Card Professionals
