    JLynne Consulting Group, LLC (Jen Croneberger)

    (60 reviews)

    I have been told I connect very well to my audience and that I bring a more personal touch than most speakers others have used for events. Some of my clients have included large companies and organizations across the country like Procter & Gamble, Lacoste, Smirnoff Global Marketing, Lockheed Martin, United Water, IREM regional conference, Spiezle Architectural Group, State Farm Insurance, Century 21, Ace Insurance, QVC's internal audit global summit, Accenture, Giant Food Stores, Lockheed Martin, various government agencies, like the US Department of Defense, NIH, and USDA just to name a few. I don't work a day in my life. I love helping and giving to other people. I have been told that comes through in my work. I have fun above all. That's clear.

    The FREEMAN INSTITUTE® -- "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy"®

    (25 reviews)

    MOST REQUESTED TOPIC: "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!" BIO: JoelSpeaksRealGood dot com CALL: 410..991..9718 -- Let's talk... I never use "off-the-shelf" training. It's much more exciting for everyone to customize training by asking to interview at least 2-3 people -- prior to the event -- to get a better sense of what I will present to the group. Each presentation centers around the implementation of the mission and vision of every organization I work with. I am curious about many things, which has informed what I am passionate about: Leadership. Black History. Rosetta Stone history. Archaeology. The psyche of professional athletes. Real-world problem solving. Conflict resolution. Travel. Entrepreneurship. Emotional intelligence. Comparative religions. Cross cultural competence. And so much more... ...It's what one learns after he/she thinks they know it all that really counts. With travels to well over 55 countries, I have learned much from the people I have met and worked with in those countries. MBTI: ENFP DISC: I/D Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 Themes: Positivity | Strategic | Self-Assurance | Connectedness | Belief * Helping to solve problem situations for organizations. * Enhancing creativity, productivity and purposeful communication. * Providing skills and tools for better customer service (both internal and external). * Watching the "lights go on" in people's eyes. * Travel. * Meeting new people. * Helping teams communicate better. * Cross-cultural relationships.

Thumbtack Spotlight

William Blades, LLC, Sales & Leadership Specialist

I started my business to do for corporations what I had done for my own sales force and for clients: grow both their people and revenue.

Bill Blades is a well-experienced speaker and consultant who has helped numerous manufacturers and distributors improve their revenue, culture and leadership, while having fun all throughout the process. He serves an international market, with North America as his focal point.

I have had a plethora of successful projects, but one would be a distributor that had stagnant revenues of exactly $50 million for 5 years. In my first 18 months, we ramped up to $87 million. I continued to work with them as advisor to the CEO, President, V.P. of Sales, V.P. of Operations, and the salespeople plus serving as Interim V.P. of Sales. I stayed with them until we surpassed $220 million and remained for occasional visits and telephone conferences as they closed in on $300 million.

Bill primarily sees himself in the role of educator, and he can emancipate you from your ignorance. Learn from his vast experience, and see your sales shoot up the way you envisioned it should.
