"Greg Surtman is a very creative and results-oriented professional. He anticipated our team’s needs and presented a very engaging and enjoyable training. He sparked interest and dialogue and provided tools, experiences, knowledge and examples of how to engage the client and get returns on investments.

Greg took five Louisiana colleges and workforce professional teams from Baton Rouge, Delgado, South Louisiana, Central Louisiana and Sowela and helped us capture the true value and benefits of the business development officer.

Greg is a dynamic young professional with a seasoned sales development career. He helped us to ask the right questions, conceptualize the benefits of a good client-relationship, and showed us fundamentally how things connected and resulted in income over expenses. Our gain from the 1.5 days in a workshop with Greg as the facilitator was awesome!"
