The Client Commitment Process Speaking Testimonials from NAIFA Washington State Annual Convention May 20, 2014

It reminds me of a course in the 70’s from Wilson Learning – good stuff! This is much more advanced. It makes me look at things that maybe I do to create an obstacle.”
John Rathbun
Ohio National

I liked the interrogatory vs consultative questions and learning the ‘timing’ of which questions to ask and when.”
Alan Zalewski
Group Services Northwest

It was a review of the DISC system as it relates to understanding the customer and key speaking points to be aware of to accommodate customer’s style. Simon talked about the Economics of Engagement – the reminder that although we’re moving to a transitional world, helping clients understand the impact to them on their personal business requires professionalism.”
Missie Hess
Allstate Financial Services

It had emphasis on consultative and understanding the client’s style. I’ve thought of times I obviously took the wrong track with a client. Simon showed me AHA moments about approaching clients by their style.”
Brian Campbell

I liked that Simon talked about how to communicate more effectively with potential clients to turn them into clients.”
Jody Lentz
Mass Mutual

I was seeing how we orient our questioning and screw up – thank you! I gained a lot from this! Simon’s presentation caused me to slow down and consider whom I am working with – clients and prospects personalities.
Roger McDowell
Retirement Nationwide

I liked learning more about engaging the client to put them in the drivers seat and that Simon will share his PowerPoint so I wouldn’t have to take so many notes! That’s great!

Simon presented interesting and new information“

I liked your approach to working with clients in the financial world, the personal tactics for understanding emotions is rarely focused on. I found validation in the way I deal with (relate to) my clients is right!
Monica L. Ewing

I really enjoyed the wheel slides about the different ways to speak with types of clients. Very interesting! Thank you! I realized how interactions with clients can be improved based on the specific question asked. Great ideas on improving NAIFA membership.”

I liked the opening questions – a focus on emotion vs logic and it’s the key to the vault. Thank you!

Simon is a very entertaining speaker! He has excellent qualifying questions and discovery process.”

Simon had a style of presentation that kept us engaged.  I liked the beginning of understanding of the differences of clients.”

It reviewed the values based selling and gave me the determination to improve myself and business.”
Caroline Manger

It was a fresh look at ‘push’ (interrogative) questioning versus ‘listen’ (consultative) questioning.”
Kenneth Beers
LDJ & Associates

I learned to first spend the time to “understand” myself, recognizing the need for asking the right questions makes ‘all’ the difference. It was a ‘new’ focus of ‘direction’ of interrogation vs consulting interview.
