WHAT DO PLANNERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ROSS?

Overall, planners love working with Ross because he delivers. Ross wants to make you look great and is very easy to work with.

A MESSAGE FROM ROSS...

“Being raised in a small town and growing up working alongside my great grandpa, grandpa, dad and brothers in my families’ fourth-generation chain of furniture stores, I was able to learn first hand about the values of hard work and customer service. Today, as a full-time professional speaker, I am proud to be able to say that those core values still drive me to be the very best I can be. My main goal in business is to make sure that my customers are happy and will go to great lengths to ensure that is accomplished. To do so, I customize my programs so that they fit in with the exact themes of my client’s events. As you can see from the testimonials on my website, I really do my homework to get to know them ahead of time, conducting interviews and even touring facilities way before I ever take the stage. I take the time to find out what their issues and concerns are; what it is that is keeping them awake at night; and identify the goals they want to achieve at the event I am going to speak at. As a result, that personalization and customization has helped me to meet and exceed the needs and challenges of my clients over the years. My evaluation rankings always score high, with both men and women, which is something I am very proud of. Please give me a call, I would love the opportunity to be a member of your team for a day.” — Ross Bernstein
