“I was sitting on a flight to Charlotte chatting with a gentleman in the next seat who was a business turn-around specialist. I mentioned that I was in the process of hiring someone to design and deliver a two days sales and strategic planning program for my sales and operations team.
He emphatically said, “Don’t do anything till you speak to Dr. Fred Broder.”
After a 30 minute chat, I understood why he is such a fan of yours. I cancelled all of my other prospects and hired Dr. Fred Broder. We met at the Atlanta Airport for over four hours on a stop over to Sacramento to hammer out the program strategy.
Thanks for doing your homework and interviewing eight key members of my team and then designing a customized, thought-provoking and practical program addressing how we can more effectively prospect and sell our services to our current and future client base.
Fred, your style of presentation is full of energy, passion, and fun. You exudes a genuine respect and appreciation for the people in your audience. It is not easy to captivate, engage and keep the attention of a seasoned group of sales and operations professionals for two days, but you succeeded.
Everyone left with a renewed sense of excitement, a revitalized set of sales insights and skills and a specific, targeted plan for us to grow our business.
I definitely recommend you as a speaker/trainer for any business. I look forward to the opportunity to turn to someone and return the favor by saying, “Don’t do anything till you speak to Dr. Fred Broder.”
—Steve Roberts, President, Business & Government Services at PRA Group
“You did your homework, and then proceeded to design and deliver thirty-two exceptional sales training seminars for our agency owners. The seminars were extremely practical, focused, interactive, and you used a high energy, fun style to address the motivational, strategic, tactical, and sales skills needed for them to grow their business. The participant evaluations were overwhelmingly positive. We were truly in ‘Good Hands’ with Dr. Fred Broder.”
—Marcy Smith, Education Unit Manager Allstate Insurance Company
“I heard about your reputation as a speaker and trainer and thought some of the hype might have been exaggerated. I was mistaken…Fred, you are the real deal! You are an unbelievably talented speaker and trainer who should be utilized by anyone interested in motivating and improving the performance of their managers, sales reps and employee teams. Your program is definitely results oriented. I have been active in our industry for over 25 years, serving as ISSA President and on the ISSA Board of Directors, and participated in close to one-hundred industry programs. Yesterday’s program “Solving the Sales Management Puzzle to Improve Rep Performance” that you designed for NYCO and presented yesterday to our top customers, was above and beyond my expectations! Your style is truly dynamic, captivating, sincere and “down to earth”. It was clear that you do your homework. More importantly, the material was practical and addressed the needs and interest of the attendees. Please tell anyone, who is debating whether to work with you, to just call me. I will tell them to get themselves on your calendar now. It is a smart decision with an excellent return on their investment.”
—Bob Stahurski, President/CEO, NYCO Products Co.
“Thank you for speaking at our Atlanta region store manager conference this past November. I appreciate your consultative approach and more specifically, the way you worked with us to integrate the conference theme into your messaging. I was also impressed that you took the time to talk with several of our team members to better understand our culture and what would resonate with the team. The team was immediately engaged from the start of your session and you held their attention throughout. They left feeling motivated and rejuvenated which was the goal of our conference. I want to share a few comments we received in our post-meeting survey.
“Dr. Broder was one of the best motivational speakers I’ve heard! His message was extremely impactful for me personally and professionally and was just what I needed at this particular time.”
“Dr. Broder really made you evaluate what’s important in life.”

You are a dynamic speaker with a meaningful message and it made quite the impression on our team. We look forward to working with you in the future.

As President of the Nashville Facilities Management Association, I wanted to give our members an inspirational gift.
I had hired you, several years ago, as a speaker for another organization.
You delivered a fantastic message then and you hit another “homerun” yesterday.
Your message was so down to earth and delivered in such a dynamic, thought provoking and humorous/theatrical style.
Our members came up to me, after your presentation, thanking me for giving them the “gift” of Fred Broder.
Fred, I am so glad that you could fit us into your schedule.
Your words of wisdom will continue to resonate with everyone in attendance.
You provided each attendee with a “buffet” of insights and techniques to enhance both their personal and professional life. Truly a gift!
I would unequivocally recommend you as a speaker to any business or organization. I will be looking for opportunities to plug you into the Nashville Market.
—Tammy Roberts, IFMA, Nashville Chapter President

My director contracted with Fred to provide me with one-on-one coaching and I cannot begin to thank him enough for dramatically accelerating my confidence, my skills, and my understanding of how to be an effective trainer and change agent. Fred took me under his wing and taught me how to ‘fly high and far’ as a trainer.”
—Alicia Stephens, Education Manager Biolab, Inc., A Chemtura Company

Fred was meticulous in his preparation and customization of his all day sales seminar and the results were outstanding.”

“In an effort to ensure that our practice continues to remain the recognized leader in vein procedures in Atlanta, I hired Dr. Fred Broder as a speaker/trainer/consultant.
Dr. Broder designed and delivered, for our doctors and medical team, a series of six customized programs. Those presentations focused on issues of communications, customer service, sales, marketing, motivation and team building.
Dr. Broder has a very unique, fun and powerful presentation style that energized and captivated every member of our team. His content was practical, challenging and engaging. He targeted specific areas that each of us individually and collectively could and should address to improve our professional and personal lives.
Dr. Broder exceeded my expectations regarding the value he brought to our practice. I encourage any practice, company or association to book Dr. Broder as a speaker, trainer, or consultant.”
—Dr. Louis Prevosti, MD, Medical Director, VEINAtlanta
“SMA’s membership includes some of the leading janitorial supplies and food service packaging distributors in North America. I had heard of Fred Broder’s reputation as a speaker and sales/management trainer in our industry and I wanted to hear him for myself. I spent a day as an observer in one of his seminars and now I understand why he is so highly regarded. His unique approach was engaging and held the attention of reps and owners alike; securing their buy in as the days activities unfolded. However, most important they learned specific practical strategies that can be applied on a daily basis to grow their business. I am a fan of Fred Broder and consider him an exceptional and unique resource to our industry.”
—Dick McGann, CEO, Strategic Market Alliance
“Your unconventional opening engaged the audience from the beginning and provided an immediate illustration of your themes. You gave our group concrete strategies and information that will positively change the way we advocate for our programs in our communities. In particular, your tactics for reframing the conversation after the word “no” were invaluable to our group. We also appreciate the high level of energy that you brought to the room! Considering it was an afternoon presentation and people were tired from traveling, you did an excellent job engaging the group – to the point that the participants asked you to extend your presentation beyond the allotted time. That is a real compliment to you and the quality of information you provided.”
—Sarah B. Visser, Executive Director, Keep Georgia Beautiful
“You conducted the “Sales Improvement Intervention Seminar” for our sales team… As you are already aware May was our best sales month… The good news is that June sales equaled May sales, but carried better margins! We are delighted that we made the investment in the seminar and we expect it to pay dividends for a long time to come. Fred, we also really appreciate the way you have stayed in ongoing contact with us since the seminar and the follow up reinforcement e-mails you have sent to our reps. Again, we would encourage any sales oriented company, especially those associated with the industrial chemical and paper business, to take advantage of your seminar. It was the “shot in the arm” our reps needed to succeed in this challenging economy.”
—Ronnie Kent, President & Steve Neumyer, V.P. Sales, Associated Paper
“I am pleased to recommend and endorse Dr. Fred Broder. As a past president ofISSA, I have had the opportunity to hear many speakers and I have participated in many sales seminars related to our industry. Dr. Broder conducted a one-day ‘sales intervention’ with our sales representatives to help them compete successfully in any economic environment. Fred exceeded my expectations! The reps were literally mesmerized, inspired and involved throughout the day. He provided them with ‘meat and potatoes’ strategies, tactics and skills that they can put to immediate use to increase their sales, profit margins and income. I would, encourage, without hesitation, any of my colleagues who want to grow their business to contact Fred.”
—Jim Chittom, CEO, Athens Janitor Supply Company, Past President ISSA

I am excited to tell you today that the seminar has resulted in an increase in sales, revenue, and account growth for our sales representatives. Our investment in you has more than paid off and I expect it will continue to do so. My sales team and I could not be happier or more excited that the attitudinal, strategic, and tactical selling skills you covered in the seminar really work in the real world with real customers. Again, I would encourage any president or manager, whether in our industry or another, to take the opportunity to invest in a Dr. Fred Broder Sales Seminar. You can expect an immediate return on your investment.”
—Clark Bunting, President, Handi-Clean
“We very much appreciated your dynamic presentation at our Members-Only Forum. From the moment you started and until the end you held the audience’s attention. They were spell-bound. As executive director, I made a point of querying our members at dinner that night about your presentation. I heard nothing but favorable reviews. Everyone commented on how clearly – even memorably – you made your points. You achieved what speakers aspire to – delivering a presentation that was educational and inspiring and entertaining.”
—Moby Salahuddin, Executive Director, South Carolina Self-Insurers Association, Inc.

Words don’t justify the wealth of information he has shared with me. I strongly recommend him as a coach and a mentor.
