We’ve engaged Tom on several occasions as a keynote speaker to address our sales professionals, managers, media agencies and partners. He’s a pleasure to work with, quick to respond and committed to ensuring a smooth event. We’re looking forward to his participation again as a panelist and speaker during our upcoming event gathering 1,000 business leaders, key decision makers and entrepreneurs.

Tom is a highly energetic and engaging speaker. His talks are informative, relevant and entertaining and equip you with specific ideas and actions, which can be practiced immediately to increase your visibility and boost your sales. What I specifically appreciate about him is that he ‘walks his talk’ and constantly models to his audience and clients how he uses the same approaches and tools.

I have attended numerous sales training including Solution Selling, Message to CIO and Sales Tactics 101.When I was with Ascendas and I had the chance to attend “Management Mastery – Leading Sales Teams to Exceeding Targets”. Tom is a seasoned trainer who uses his cutting edge approach which are unlike other sales trainers who are mainly armchair critics. I highly recommend you to attend his trainings as they are professional, transformational and lots of fun!

Sharing our outstanding experience! During the workshops our team constantly commented on Tom’s high level of energy. He connected to each individual and provided relevant examples to highlight key concepts. The programme was interactive and energising and we’re looking forward to the follow up component to ensure the results of training are not ‘left in the classroom’.

Excerpt from “STJobs Workshop: Social Media Selling Strategies”
Abbott, who is the Founder and Director of SOCO/ Sales Training as well as a regular contributor of sales articles to local newspapers and magazines, received praise for his straightforward delivery that veered away from mere regurgitation to collaborative introspection, an approach which made participants reflect on their past successes in order to turn achievement into motivation.
