Chad Pickard: Spoke-n-Sport

"“I was fortunate to get involved with The Mann Group almost 10 years ago. We had sales training at my store for all my staff. Ever since then I’ve wanted to bring them back. I have taken every opportunity to hear Dan and Leslie speak at Interbike as well as the IBD Summit. I was even fortunate to be in an NBDA P2 group that they facilitated. What I love about Dan and Leslie is the unwavering confidence and joy they bring to the training table."

Karl Salz: Sun & Ski Sports

"We like to hire a lot of enthusiasts that are passionate about the activities that they do, but they might not be the most confident working with customers yet, and we have high expectations from a customer service standpoint. We rely on Dan to help us with our strategy. He’s more than a trainer, he’s almost like a partner or a consultant. knowing that we can rely on Dan to help bridge the gap between the decision to hire someone without experience or product knowledge, or with Dan’s help we can hire people who are passionate about their sport and have that built-in product knowledge, we can help them with their confidence, customer service. Hiring enthusiasts knowing we can get them trained and teach them how to interact with customers. He knows the industry, he’s credible, and he helps people pay attention to training.”
