  • Eliot Barry
    Barry Farber first stepped into my business while consulting for another service provider in the IT/office business machine industry. He confidently entered my building with the sales manager from that company, and started a conversation with the ease of an old friend. His approach was refreshing, not pushy or arrogant. He was upfront about being a consultant and working with this other company to cultivate other opportunities. Barry had a presence that screamed “sales manager”. After that initial meeting Barry followed up with a thank you note, and a follow up call. I approached him about consulting for us. He was receptive, and enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with us. He attended sales meetings, worked with my sales staff individually, providing me with a third party assessment of my team. He networked with his contacts to enhance markets and expand our sales. Barry went on sales calls with our team, and made a positive impact on our organization. I have referred Barry to potential clients in other businesses who I have known for many years, and I am happy to have a conversation with anyone about the positive impact he has made, and continues to make in our business.

    You were a big hit among both the sales reps, as well as sales management, which I’m sure you know is no small feat. There were several things which in my opinion made your program very successful.

    Your background in sales – you could speak to the group as “one of them”. You provided practical information – it wasn’t canned information that you had not practiced as a salesperson.

    You were well informed – you had done a good job of researching Great-West and were able to put things into our language. Your research on the sales profession – this added a lot of credibility to your material.

    I have known Barry for almost 30 years. He has followed me in my career and I his and to my benefit it has helped me grow over the years. I can say that many authors, speakers and consultants have come and gone in my career, but Barry’s message rings true and has held up over the decades. Barry is exciting, intelligent, resourceful and has an uncanny ability to put people he speaks to at ease. Whether in front of a large audience, small group or one on one, he is cool, informative, funny and relevant. Managers of mine, years after attending Barry’s seminars and meetings, quote him as if they heard him yesterday.

    I always thought “knock your socks off” was a figure of speech. Until, that is, you addressed our group. Our audience was comprised of more than 200 top selling travel agency owners and top level executives with many of the largest cruise lines and tour operators in the world – like Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean International, Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line. They were all “heavy” hitters – not easily impressed!!! Congratulations, Barry, our group voted you this year’s “Favorite Speaker”.

His Nightingale-Conant program, State-Of-The-Art Selling is our best-selling Business-to-Consumer program of all time and delivers proven sales strategies that are customer-focused and have been ‘battle-tested’ in the marketplace–he doesn’t just recycle old and tired sales techniques. Whenever Barry talks…..I listen!

    Sales strategies to grow your business is the single biggest challenge for business owners, and Barry Farber’s motivational presentation is full of proven sales techniques, practical advise and simple tips to meet that challenge; and he does it with a sense of humor that keeps the audience engaged and glued to every word. I have used Barry over 20 times, in 13 different cities because the relevancy of his information and the positive feedback I receive, has been overwhelmingly positive, “…Bring Barry back”, “Please present more of the same information…”, “I was able to implement some of Barry’s ideas on my first sales call…” Barry is an entrepreneur who lives what he talks about every day and it’s one of the biggest reasons why business owners respect his advice, and why I will continue to utilize his talents and expertise.

    Barry Farber was brought into my organization to highlight the “Top Down Selling” strategy. At first there was a skepticism amongst the sales reps. How do we go straight to the top and not “sell” anything and even more ensure we can get close to an appointment…with someone….anyone? We were assigned to make a list of our dream accounts and to find out who the CEO was and a few fun facts about them. After my first visit with Barry all skepticism was GONE. We walked right in asked for the CEO like we knew him for years. When the CEO walked out we discussed his recent interview with Inc. magazine on his personal journey to get the coveted top spot and what he learned during the process. The conversation was effortless pulling challenges that I have faced as an individual starting out in an entrepreneurial type position and how he has overcome most of the same challenges. He was impressed at the research we did and actually thanked us. At the very end of the conversation the CEO asked of course, “and what is it that you do.” At that point I gave him my value proposition and his response was oh, you must meet my IT director who is in charge of those decisions. IT WAS BRILLIANT! I have never had to work so little to get an appointment and with the exact person I needed at that. Every stop after that went the same way. Everyone should be taught this in sales 101.

    Barry helped me develop a micro marketing strategy for our national sales team in which we identified a small, select group of prospective clients who we referred to as the wish list of prospects and those we would love to do business with. We developed a strategy to learn as much as we could about each and every potential client and created a campaign that delivered something of true value in a very personal way with the goal of getting face-to-face meetings. The program has been highly successful as it helps define new prospects, makes the sales team highly accountable and can be tracked over time for ROI. Barry listens to your needs, has the expertise and creativity to execute and sustain initiatives and goes above and beyond to deliver what we set out to achieve. I highly recommend Barry for new business strategies.

    In every successful deal there needs to be someone who acts like the glue to bring the various parties together, make sure all of the information needed is available and people keep communicating with each other. Barry Farber has always been able to find any resource or person I needed to get whatever deal I needed done. Whether finding a literary agent, potential take-over targets for my company, outlets for a potential publishing deal and even my own television show, Barry already knows almost everyone of use and if he doesn’t he will seek them out and within a very short time have them on his team. He is the ultimate team player, coach, entrepreneur and sounding board who can make something out of nothing which many people call magic.

    Barry Farber was instrumental in helping our business grow and expand in many areas. He worked with us on gaining access to key decision makers and C-Suite level contacts in large accounts. Based upon the success we had with our entry level sales teams, we asked Barry to assist our senior level managers with targeted high level National account activity. I would recommend his services to anyone that is looking to improve the results of their Sales organization.

    Barry was the keynote speaker at our national sales meeting and has remained as a trusted sales advisor. There is an abundance of social media posts, co-authored books and video clips which teach sales; much of this is posted without filter and with self proclaimed expertise. Within this new social media environment, Barry stands apart as a sales executive who has been in the trenches, understanding the practical real world issues, and continues to step into the field so that he sees the day to day battles sales personnel face. Prior to his keynote speech, Barry took the time to be in the field, to dig into revealing client discussions and to observe with an expert’s eye. The result of all this was that Barry formulated his breakthrough sales ideas in a way that appeared authentic to our industry and ones which our sales team was apt to adopt. While I can list many other qualities which make Barry superb, one other which I will conclude with is that the client/vendor experience of working with Barry is a sales lesson in itself. He builds trust early on, leaves no inquiry without a timely response, effectively engages key sponsors, and follows engagements with - all the appropriate niceties (including the handwritten thank you notes). To have all this as an overlay to his far reaching sales expertise is truly amazing.
