“Just a quick note to tell you how great Mike Nowak was. His Donald Trump in my opinion was the key to the success of our evening. The majority of the money raised that evening came through the auction which Mike handled in a stellar fashion. His humor was appropriate and really got the crowd going. Thanks again for your help.”

“The Bluez Brothers were a tremendous hit at our opening reception. Elwood and Jake got the meeting off to a great start and I could not have been more pleased with how the evening went. You did a great job and kept us laughing far longer than your performance. It was a pleasure meeting and doing business with you. If we ever go back to Chicago for our meeting, I’ll be calling.”

“I would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for your performances at the Serigraph annual sales meeting in Lake Geneva. The professionalism with which each event was carried out exceeded our expectations. Comments have been flooding our office on the effectiveness of the sales scenarios performed by Neal Grofman and Jamie Newell. Attendees appreciated the mix of humor and business and though it was a very entertaining and memorable format to emphasize pertinent sales issues and techniques. We were extremely happy and impressed with the results.”
