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 we were 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 that would inspire and differentiate our Broker Managers in the field to attract and engage more actively selling Brokers then 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.

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 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.”

Ozzie Gontang

Vistage Chair, Vistage International

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.

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 positively impact other areas of our lives. 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!

Katherine Harvey

CSAP Associate Sales Specialist, Cisco

I contracted with Arthur in July 2011 to help us accelerate our sales results with more “hands-on” coaching. He was able to quickly learn our sales process and effectively embed 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 literally hundreds of calls and spend hours with each sales representative to better understand our challenges 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 customers true need, combined with 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 in. He is a trustworthy, warm and charismatic individual, with a wealth of wisdom and street smarts and I would recommend Arthur as a resource to any organization serious about improving their sales results.

I had the pleasure of working with Arthur on the development and launch of 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 attended an amazing speaking course, “FireUp Your Presentation” that Arthur Schwartz lead. The class from FireUp Coaching & Training taught me a new skill set and gave me the confidence needed to comfortably speak in front of any audience. I appreciate Arthur’s coaching and use my new skills weekly if not daily. The training they provided is a gift that keeps giving. Thank you Arthur and FireUp Coaching & Training!

Shawn Erickson

I had the opportunity to work with Arthur who was part of my Peer Group Launch Team at Vistage. Arthur was my launch coach and was a valuable asset for me personally and professionally. His background in sales, plus his skill set in coaching brought great value each week as we met for about 4 months. Arthur was able to help me see more clearly the challenges that I faced and quickly identify the steps I could be taking to win. And it worked — our team successfully launched! Aside from Coaching, I’ve found Arthur to be just a down to earth great guy to work with. Arthur, thanks for your help, partnership, and friendship. Press On My Friend!! – Andrew

Andrew Mulford

CEO at One Life Group, Vistage Worldwide, Inc.

I had the privilege to meet and work with Arthur when I was 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 and challenge so I could be successful and grow. I will be forever grateful to Arthur for helping me be successful and grow.

Jim Frost

Master Coach, Teacher and CEO | Vistage Chair | Executive Coach & Mentor, Vistage Worldwide, Inc.

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. I’ve been more conscious about my own public speaking techniques since taking his training.

Robert Yee

Consulting Systems Engineer, Cisco

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.

Vince Liuzza

Principal, Liuzza Management Consulting, Inc., Vistage Worldwide, Inc.

Arthur is very knowledgeable, helpful and concerned about the success of the people he works with. He is open to new ideas and flexible in his approach. As my Vistage Coach, he has been outstanding.

Glen Shell

Business Consultant, Trusted Advisor, Coach & Mentor, Vistage Worldwide, 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.

"YOUR RADICAL SALES and BUSINESS COACH" , Vistage Worldwide, Inc.

“Arthur has been a consultant with Five Point Capital for a couple 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 as well as 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 the work he has done.”

Luke O’Dell

“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.

I highly recommend Arthur for any Sales oriented training/coaching positions. Simply put, he is the best I’ve worked with.”

Arthur played a critical role in our sales team being named one of the best in the Dale Carnegie Global network.”

Michael Crom

“I have worked with Arthur for a little over three years at AMN Healthcare. During this time I have had the opportunity to work on a number of sales training the development and implementation of a CRM system for our sales organization. During all of our interactions and projects, Arthur has demonstrated a high degree of professionalism, sincere interest and subject matter expertise.

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.

“Arthur’s leadership, expertise, and vision were instrumental in the development and on-going 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 has significantly improved individual and organizational performance. His robust knowledge of the healthcare industry, best sales practices, and organizational development principals are rare to find and were 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 on-boarding program. The result was the acceleration of new hire productivity ramp-up; generating $12 million in incremental revenue within a 12 month period.”

Will Morse

Vice President of Sales Operations, AMN HealthCare, “Arthur's leadership

“Arthur was hired to provide Sales Training and to assist with the transition of 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 on-going training modules. Our sales reps looked forward to their time together with Arthur and they all felt that they improved after working with him. We worked on everything from delivering high-quality voice mail 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.”

David Krakowar

Director of Sales, Five Point Capital

“I first met Arthur in 1985 when he applied for a sales position with Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. I immediately recognized that his communications 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, he plans his work, and then he 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 sales people whether they are 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 all of the answers to all of 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!”

Doug Carter

President, Carter International Training

“Arthur and I worked on sales strategy and proposal management projects for various clients. He is extremely creative, a great public speaker, and knows how to listen to people so he can provide thoughtful answers and solutions. He prepares for his audience so he can present the most meaningful information. He is very engaging and makes it easy for his audience to participate, ask questions, and get the most from their learning experience. His depth and breadth of experience gives him great perspective on how to relate to people and situations. I highly recommend Arthur for training, marketing, and communications.”

Holly Andrews

“Arthur is a savvy, credible, entertaining workshop facilitator and power LinkedIn user. His energy, patience, enthusiasm, and mastery of social networking engage and inform even the most terrified technophobe. He explores and discovers innovative uses for existing applications, and freely shares these invaluable tips and cautions. Time flies during his entertaining, informal, interactive presentations. You will come away inspired, wanting to apply your new skills and knowledge.”

Arthur is a true pioneer and someone who really 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. It is for these reasons (and so many others) that I would highly recommend Arthur and Techno Power Marketing to anyone looking engage in Social Media Marketing

I unreservedly recommend that any potential employer give Arthur serious consideration for a position with their company.”

If we were hiring right now I would certainly make him an offer, a and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any position.”

Bryan Noar

“I have had the opportunity to know and work with Arthur Schwartz for over the past 12 years. Arthur is an experienced sales professional with a dynamic background that would be an asset to any organization. Arthur and I worked together at PacifiCare Health Systems where his foundation of training expertise helps develop that organization’s sales team to a new level. Since PacifiCare, I have continued to stay in contact with Arthur and have found him to be a tremendous resource for advice and consulting. I also had the opportunity to utilize his services to develop and implement a short training program for our provider recruitment teams at American Specialty Health, which was a success and helped improve the skill sets of our team. Arthur accomplished this by taking the time to understand our business model and our objectives in meeting and exceeding our national network goals in customizing a program tailored to our specific needs. As stated, Arthur is an accomplished professional and would be an asset to any organization that can utilize his talents.”
