President, Meeting Tomorrow
Brian was brought aboard as a sales consultant/trainer who worked with our sales team to improve their sales skills. He also helped us source sales reps for our organization. Brian is a great facilitator, trainer and business partner. His expertise in the "sales empowerment" area is second to none. He has good ideas and offers sound, practical advise on how to get more out of people. He is an excellent resource - you can't go wrong if you bring him on your team.
Executive Vice President, Rightsize Facility Performance
We have worked with Brian over the past year building our sales force, using his sales techniques and following his advice/guidance. His passion and desire to help people/organizations to accomplish their goals is second to none. The majority of consultants have great ideas, however, many times do not execute the plan. Not Brian, he gets it done.
"I don't think of Gregg and Sales Empowerment Group as a separate recruiting firm. Instead, I think of them as an extension of my company. While many recruiters will send you a bunch of warm bodies, they always are sure to send the highest quality candidates in the quickest amount of time. I've even referred Gregg's team business because of what an exceptional job they do for me."
Senior VP of Sales at Incisent Technologies
"Brian O'Neil responded to our business needs adding immediate lift by sourcing excellent professional sales talent, contributing to the performance ramp up of these individuals, and is now adding additional value by helping our entire sales team perform at a higher level. Brian has quickly achieved trusted advisor status at our Firm and I am confident he can help your business as well."
Managing Partner at Patina Solutions
"Gregg greatly exceeded my expectations. He really took the time to understand my business to make sure we received top notch candidates with qualifications to meet the position requirements. Not only was I impressed with the quality of candidates but also the speed at which they were sent to me. From beginning to end, we got a star candidate hired within 30 days which is a record for our company! Gregg and Sales Empowerment should be viewed as an extension of your company's assets."

CEO at Tandem HR
"I have hired Brian multiple times over the past 6 months to train sales people on social media, create on-boarding documentation for remote sales people, and recruiting. Each time his company has delivered tremendous results at better than market rates. Brian and his staff are very creative in leveraging new technology, new ideas and expert resources to deliver results.

VP of Sales at Businessolver
"I recommended that Navman Wireless engage Gregg and Sales Empowerment Group and within weeks, we hired one of his candidates after extensive and exhaustive searches with other recruiters. Gregg and I have previously worked together and I believe Gregg is successful at recruiting because he really understands sales and he listens to what people really want and need. Gregg has worked in sales most of his career so he knows what qualities to look for in a great salesperson and he knows how to pair those salespeople with great companies. I would personally recommend both Gregg and Sales Empowerment Group to both salespeople looking for the right fit and companies looking for the right candidates."
Marketing Manager, Navman Wireless
Brian did a fantastic job training our company's Sales Staff on how to use the tools that are readily available to boost sales. He was very patient and very organized. If your sales are down and need to inspire your staff, he is perfect for you!
Brandin Davis, National Account Sales Manager
"When Gregg first contacted me and we discussed Sales Empowerment Group, I was already interviewing a few great candidates but he was confident he could find me a star. Within a week, he sent two incredible candidates and we hired one of them, who is doing an exceptional job. I was very impressed with not only the caliber of people he sent but also how quickly he was able to find them. Would use Gregg again in an instant."
VP North America at ProfitAbility Business Simulations
"When hiring an outside consultant, sales trainer or recruiter it is very important to understand their values and core beliefs. I have learned over the past few months that Brian's the real deal in all the areas I just mentioned. He helps his clients increase sales by using his 3 step approach
Managing Director, Executive Outcomes LLC
"Brian is a mover and shaker. I don't know how he does it, but wow can this guy get things done! He orchestrated a wonderful team of experts that will take my company to the next level. And he's a real straight shooter. If he says it's going to happen...take it to the bank! I'm so glad to have come to know Brian and his team. I would strongly recommend Brian without hesitation."

His work ethic is very strong. He is creative, energetic and tenacious. Equally importantly, he is a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend Brian."

COO/CMO, Benefitdecisions, Inc.
"I hired Brian 4 months ago for sales trainings/sales consulting. Over the past 4 months he has implemented a sales training program that helps us focus on what matters - potential clients/clients. I wanted to make sure my sales people had the right skills, tools and awareness to make Rightsize Facility Performance the #1 choice in the industry. I made this investment because I wanted to deliver the best possible client experience out in the marketplace. By hiring Brian, I have seen the difference in my salespeople and would highly recommend him as a sales consultant/sales trainer."

His passion and desire to help people/organizations to accomplish their goals is second to none. The majority of consultants have great ideas, however, many times do not execute the plan. Not Brian, he gets it done! Recently, we just added two more sales associates through Sales Empowerment Group and cannot be more delighted with the talent his group recruited for us. With the new addition of our sales staff we will be working with Brian and his group to be the Acting Interim VP of Sales. If you are looking to put in the right sales people, sales structure and "Inspect what you Expect, with Respect" I would call Brian and his group today. You will be glad you did."
Owner of Hoodz
To sum it up, "Brian just get's it." He works to understand your business and then proposes solutions that balance business needs and improved service opportunities. He has great energy around the work that he does which comes across not only in his intial "sales pitch", but on the agreed upon deliverables, which is what really counts
It's my pleasure to recommend Brian O'Neil and Sales Empowerment Group. In the few weeks since I've worked with Brian, I've seen my sales activity increase dramatically and have even closed a couple of sales, which is odd since the sales cycle in my industry is typically three to six months. As a consultant that works primarly on operations and technology, sales has never been an easy discipline for me. I thought it had to do primarily with charisma and personality. Brian helped me to see that, like the work I do on a regular basis, sales is a process driven activity. Together, we designed a sales process that uniquely showcases my product offerings, opens doors to prospective clients and fits with my personality. I can heartliy endorse his work. In addition to being a fine craftsmen, Brian has a great work ethic and a real heart-felt concern for his clients.
Mike Chirveno, President
Clear Vision Consulting
Brian has worked with our agency as a consultant. His sales presentation, "getting in the door" was outstanding. Many of our clients use Brian's consulting services and are extremely pleased with the results. Much of Brian's success comes from his tremendous ability to communicate with his customer. His personal character and values accentuate his superior business skills. His integrity, leadership and work ethic is unquestionable. He never rests until the job is complete and his customer needs are met. At a young age, Brian has discovered the formula for building customer loyalty. Paramount to all the wonderful qualities Brian possesses, both professionally and personally; Brian O'Neil has the ability to do the right thing. He would be an asset to any company that would hire him for his services and consulting skills.

Brian was extremely helpful in teaching the correct way to utilize LinkedIn, and other social media platforms, and how your company's sales force will never have to make "cold call" again by using the powerful tools available. Brian explained things in great detail, took the time to answer questions, and got me pointed in the right direction. Brian is the "secret weapon" in making your sales force more productive.
