“We recently put our entire office through a 2-day sales training program with Jack Kelly and The Corlea Group. This included Principals with over 30 years’ experience to advisors with less than 2 years in the business. The program was outstanding, and the feedback from everyone who participated could not have been better. The program was tailored specifically for our industry and our people. I was really impressed with the amount of time and preparation that Jack put in before the program, interviewing all of our employees, and creating a curriculum that would have the most impact on our team. We all walked away with a set of tools and systems that will help us win more business and stay on track with our business development efforts.

I would highly recommend anyone who is involved in sales at any level to reach out to The Corlea Group and have them develop a program for you or your company, you won’t be disappointed.”

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.

“Jack is a smart, savvy sales coach who has the unique ability to step back and see the overall business issue from both the macro and micro levels. He is passionate, caring, and committed to his clients’ success. It has been a pleasure to know him and collaborate with him.”

Angela Hill, CEO, Incitrio Marketing Agency

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.
