Our all-in-one enablement platform helps improve sales efficacy and efficiency. It’s proven to do this by positively impacting revenue metrics and key performance indicators.
Arthur and I have worked together for the last 3 years, but it feels like much longer as I sincerely consider him a trusted friend. Arthur has helped us develop our sales enablement program, and I couldn’t be happier with where we are today, from technology to content. Arthur is a consummate professional and would benefit any organization!

Arthur is an amazing trainer in the areas of presenting and peak performance. My clients are extremely important to me, so when I choose a trainer for my team, I only want the absolute very best, and that’s what Arthur is, the very best. He has delivered several programs for me, and he always produces outstanding results. He puts everything he has into every training he does, and my clients absolutely love him!

Arthur is one of the most professional sales leaders I have ever met. We have a relationship that arcs over 35 years, from his days at Dale Carnegie to today. He has always been a vast resource for our organization and our members. He can speak on ANY sales-related topic. His presentations are passionate, informative, challenging, and highly interactive.

When planning our West Territory Government Leadership Conference, we wanted to offer something to the entire team that would be memorable and impactful. More importantly, we wanted to deliver a development program to inspire and differentiate our Broker Managers in the field to attract and engage more actively selling Brokers than our competitors. I am happy to say that the two-day “FIRE-UP” program delivered/facilitated by Master Trainer Arthur Schwartz exceeded our expectations. In fact, the surveys that have come back from the team all have one theme in common: “Thank you, Senior Leadership; you knocked it out of the park with the FIRE UP program” and a rating of 97% on a 100-point scale – the first time I’ve seen this in my tenure at Aetna.
Chief Growth Officer, Cigna
I contracted with Arthur in July 2011 to help us accelerate our sales results with more “hands-on” coaching. He quickly learned our sales process and effectively embedded himself in the Five Point Sales Organization. Unlike many consultants who give you answers before knowing the issues, Arthur took the time to listen to hundreds of calls and spend hours with each sales representative to understand our challenges better and then develop specific success plans. His one-to-one coaching sessions with reps had an immediate impact, with increased sales performance shown in his first month working with us. Arthur brought fresh sales ideas and leveraged technology in ways we had not, allowing him to leverage his time and leverage our results. His vast experience of dissecting a customer’s true need and his effective coaching and interpersonal skills helped our sales reps achieve results most had not previously achieved. He always respected and supported the management team, finding the right balance of blending his past successes with the vision and direction being set for him to coach. He is a trustworthy, warm, and charismatic individual with a wealth of wisdom and street smarts. I would recommend Arthur as a resource to any organization serious about improving their sales results.
Chief Operating Officer, TiGER 21
Arthur was extremely valuable in establishing a sales approach and language used by over 18 sales professionals. His approach to understanding the true needs of the sale team, through interactions with Sales Managers, allowed him to articulate and develop the sales team as if they were his own team. Arthur was well respected by the sales participants, and his coaching skills allowed me to enhance my sales skills too.
Chief Operating Officer, HUEMAN PEOPLE SOLUTIONS
Arthur has been fantastic to work with over the last few months. His approach and tremendous insight has brought a ton of value to our sales organization at a very critical time. His ability to quickly assess our company’s value prop, diagnose core issues, and formulate new techniques that fit into today’s world has given everyone a fresh perspective and had a positive impact across our sales organization. If you are looking for new and relevant ways to grow your business and motivate your team, I highly recommend Arthur as your guy!
Head of Sales, alwaysAI
“Arthur has been a consultant with Five Point Capital for a couple of years. In his most recent time with Five Point Capital, I had the opportunity to work side by side with Arthur to train the sales group. Arthur brought about fresh sales ideas and new technology, making the sales coaching even more effective. Arthur learned the business quickly and was able to provide on-call coaching to new and tenured sales representatives. Arthur brought his own recommendations but always went along with the direction provided by management. Arthur has been a valuable asset, and part of our team’s success can be attributed to his work.”
Sales Manager, Five Point Capital
Arthur worked with our early in career team at Cisco and greatly inspired and challenged us in FiredUp Training. Arthur was able to both give us tangible ways to improve our public speaking skills and a framework for how to channel our new skills to impact other areas of our lives positively. We all came away with not just “what’s” but “how’s”. Thank you, Arthur, for the impact you made on each and every one of us!
Manager, Cisco Enterprise
“Arthur is a true sales and marketing pro. He has a passion for sales effectiveness and a very strong work ethic. I started working with Arthur in the late 1990s when he was a reseller for our software applications. He successfully sold and implemented our solutions to well-known corporations and was consistently one of our top-performing business partners. His organization, Company Coach, provided our customers with top-notch consulting services and support. I unreservedly recommend that any potential employer consider Arthur for a position with their company.”
Vice President Implementation, Paycor
I can’t say enough about Arthur and how he helped raise my game for a high-profile speaking engagement — serving as the MC of our global user event. I asked Arthur to make me feel more comfortable on stage and deliver a compelling message. He did way more than that, helping me craft my message and my delivery and challenging me to engage the audience. Public speaking is an art, and nobody understands it better than Arthur. He will make your presentation and delivery exponentially better. Thank you, Arthur!
Arthur is an extraordinary coach because he employs his keen understanding of human nature and effective communication to empower clients to attain their goals. He is a Master of Storytelling and how it can be leveraged to build personal and professional skills and to achieve business success. His combination of creativity, humor, and wisdom is rare indeed! If you want the best, hire Arthur!
Development Director and Coach Approach Trainer at Just in Time for Foster Youth
“Arthur and I worked closely in Sales & Marketing at SupraLife, where I was a VP. When the company formed its Proven Results subsidiary, Arthur was president, and I was VP. He is not only an exceptional trainer and communicator who gets the most from those he works with – he is also a go-ahead business executive who takes the bull by the horns and gets things done quickly, effectively, and always with integrity. If we were hiring right now, I would make him an offer, and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any position.”
VP of Client Success at Avidon Health
I have known Arthur for over 20 years, working together in the Medicare Sales industry. Aetna hired Arthur to conduct a 2 day Sales Presenter and coaching session training with our West regional sales team. All applauded the Fire Up training method, indicating it was one of the best sales training they had attended. He also videotaped the team, which created an outstanding team-building session as an added benefit.
Art has a down-to-earth approach with valuable content that our employees could easily implement in the field. He is genuine in wanting to help teams succeed, and I highly recommend Arthur and the “Fire-Up system” in taking your team to the next level in presenting and providing valuable feedback for success.
Associate Vice President Orange County, AZ Alignment Healthcare
“Arthur’s leadership, expertise, and vision were instrumental in the development and ongoing management of AMN Healthcare’s sales operations and sales training programs for our $750M revenue, 250+ person sized sales division. Arthur is a truly remarkable person whose efforts with AMN’s sales teams have
significantly improved individual and organizational performance. His robust knowledge of the healthcare industry, best sales practices, and organizational development principles are rare to find and was instrumental in the development and success of AMNs’ sales operations. Specifically, he oversaw the gap analysis of our complex sales cycle and managed a training team through the course design and ongoing delivery of a performance-based onboarding program. The result was the acceleration of new hire productivity ramp-up, generating $12 million in incremental revenue within a 12-month period.”
Corporate Vice President of Solution Design & Sales Support at AMN Healthcare
Arthur is a master at crafting a marketing and sales message that resonates, and at coaching his clients on message delivery techniques that cut through the noise and demand attention. I worked with Arthur as I was launching my first Vistage group. I found him to be completely locked in on helping me achieve success. He was easily accessible and responsive any time I needed a quick tip or strategy, full of creative and unique ideas, and just a ton of fun to work with. His vast experience is evident from his ability to quickly assess an opportunity, diagnose the pressure points, and design a strategy to ensure your audience hears a compelling message relevant to their needs. If you are looking for business or sales growth strategies and coaching, I recommend Arthur based upon the powerful results I achieved while working with him.

I worked with Arthur as my top business partner while I was the Channel manager at the Sant Corporation. Arthur showed tenacious follow-through and super insights while acting as a Sant-certified business partner. The clients Art helped received great value from his ability to bring conceptual benefits down into tangible cash flow in all aspects of the complex B2B sales cycle. He is a trustworthy, warm, and charismatic individual with a wealth of wisdom and street smarts.
I have known Arthur for 20 years. We have run a few thousand miles together. I have known him through the companies where he has shared his talents, knowledge, and experience. Arthur is a teacher and a mentor. His ability to organize information and present it is masterful. He knows how to create a sense of community and teamwork. He has always been committed to continuous improvement. He makes things happen. Beyond his work, his commitment to his community and his neighborhood have been stellar. Wherever Arthur has gone he has made a difference. I am honored to call him my friend.
Arthur is a pleasure to work with. Arthur is full of wisdom, always willing to help others, and is an internal leader. Arthur leads with his transparency and knack for creating game-changing results. I’m fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to work with a professional like Arthur. I hope you get the opportunity to work with Arthur.
Arthur was my coach during the time I was building my first Vistage CEO group, building my practice. Arthur’s greatest strength was encouraging me to achieve more than I thought I could. He used my successes to show me how I️ could raise the bar for myself in ways that were challenging but that I could certainly achieve. He offered a great combination of support and challenge, always with a glass full outlook.

My experience with Arthur is that he brings in many qualities to a business relationship. Here I will focus on one—his effectiveness as an executive coach. The consultant’s role is to advise us (usually on a one-time basis) on what we should do within and with our organizations. The executive coach’s role is to advise us on what we should do to deal with concerning ourselves. We all have internal idiosyncrasies, biases, habits, blind spots, and gremlins, which are often identified in the coaching process. Therein lie our major vulnerabilities as leaders. This is the main reason we each need a strong coach—like Arthur Schwartz—in dealing with ourselves objectively on self-evaluation and implementation matters.
Two years ago when I was embarking on adding a new dimension to my consulting business, I had the benefit of Arthur’s coaching. He helped me achieve my goals by recognizing and dealing with some attitudes and gremlins in my selling and communication habits. He was also effective in helping me remain on track and avoid procrastination.
Principal, Liuzza Management Consulting, Inc.,
There are two words that come to mind immediately when I think of Arthur as my coach and mentor “Caring” and “Knowledgeable”. When you work with Arthur as your mentor you not only gain the insight from his successful career but you also have a mentor that makes certain you stay on track and focused on your goals. Additionally important is that Arthur someone you enjoy being around he has a very positive attitude and makes you examine the value of a positive work/life balance. Anyone considering Arthur as a coach and mentor will clearly benefit from the relationship.

I had the pleasure of working with Arthur on developing and launching my CEO Peer Advisory Board for Vistage. Arthur’s approach was very helpful and gave me the confidence to achieve my goal. Arthur’s style was a combination of coach and mentor and put me at ease in a process that can be rather daunting.

I contracted with Arthur at a previous company. “Arthur has been, and is, a trusted provider of SEO, SEM, Social Media, and Sales Training services and consultation for us. He is extremely knowledgeable, has impeccable integrity, and is a pleasure to work with. He and his team have gotten us terrific results over the years, and we plan to continue working with him. I recommend Arthur to anyone looking for great personal attention in his areas of expertise.”
Arthur offered a lot of insight and great coaching. His experience really comes through in his teaching style. He doesn’t just teach but demonstrates the techniques. Since taking his training, I’ve become more conscious about my public speaking techniques.

“I have worked with Arthur in a past partnership and could not be happier with his work, vision, attention to detail, and exemplary leadership skills. Arthur is a true pioneer and someone who gets things done. Unlike many others in his space, Arthur truly provides tangible work that gets results. Arthur truly cares about people – not only his clients but also all the people he associates with on projects.
Web Communications Director; Head of SEO at Actian
I had the privilege to meet and work with Arthur while learning to be a Vistage chair and launching my group. Arthur was my coach and did an outstanding job. My strengths are in teaching, coaching, and execution…not cold calling and selling. Arthur learned my weaknesses and helped me through them to successfully launch my group. Arthur knew how to care for and challenge me so I could be successful and grow. I will be forever grateful to Arthur for helping me be successful and grow.

“I first met Arthur in 1985 when he applied for a sales position with Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. I immediately recognized that his communication skills were already excellent. And yet, that being said, I greatly underestimated how good he was at the time. He was an award leader in his first full year in the business. A year later, he was an award-winning team leader. He set the example for having a sterling work ethic. Arthur is one of the most motivated people I’ve met. He does his homework, plans his work, and executes with precision and poise. He gets excellent results. He’s even better at leading sales teams. He’s the guy who can Sell, Present, Manage and Motivate a team of salespeople, whether inside sales or outside sales. I worked with him at Secure Horizons when he was hired as the Sales Training Manager. He trained Sales Managers for 3 types of selling situations, inside phone sales, outside one-on-one salespeople, and salespeople who sold to groups. Arthur was excellent at all three and really excelled with outside salespeople. None of us have the answers to all the challenges we may face. But, when it comes to leading a sales team, Arthur Schwartz is one of the best-trained people I know who can facilitate excellent results for most people. Call him!”
President at Carter International Training and Development, Inc.
“Arthur has been an invaluable asset to training and coaching Business Finance Consultants such as myself. I’ve seen a big increase in my sales totals since I started working 1 on 1 with Arthur in real-time deal coaching sessions. My conversion rates and cash rates have soared, and I owe a lot of my recent success to Arthur’s vast experience, confidence, and detailed understanding of customer needs and motivations. I highly recommend Arthur for any Sales oriented training/coaching positions. Simply put, he is the best I’ve worked with.”
“Arthur was hired to provide Sales Training and to assist with the transition of the new Sales Management Team at Five Point Capital. Arthur did a fantastic job. He was very well organized and conducted hands-on, results-oriented sales training classes and followed them up with side-by-side coaching at our sales reps’ desks. He was a valuable temporary member of my management staff. Arthur and I collaborated on scripts and developing ongoing training modules. Our sales reps looked forward to their time together with Arthur; they all felt they improved after working with him. We worked on everything from delivering high-quality voicemail messages that get returned to closing the sale and how to effectively coach team members. He delivered everything he said he would and more. I highly recommend Arthur and plan on using him again in the near future.”
General Manager, Mauzy Heating, Air & Solar
I worked directly with Arthur for almost 2 years as part of a new team within AMN Healthcare dedicated to implementing and branding a full-scale sales training and development program. Arthur was an integral leader of this initiative. His entrepreneurial spirit and resourcefulness generated new ideas and established a reputation among our customers and partners as the guys who got things done. Arthur is also an amazing sales (and life) coach who has honed his active listening, facilitation, and consulting skills – all difficult to find in the business world. Finally, his positive attitude endures in the face of tough times, and he continuously perseveres in identifying and delivering win-win solutions. He is a fun and inspiring person. Thanks, Arthur.
