He achieved these results by completely re-energizing our sales team and teaching our people a 180 degree change to the existing sales approach. Armand has mastered the complex sale by understanding how to increase customers’ awareness of their business issues by actively managing the decision process.  Armand’s entrepreneurial thinking, relationship building, laser-focus on top-line results, technology market knowledge and unique ability to motivate high performance teams are the reasons behind my unqualified recommendation of him.”

“Unlike many others, I have known Armand since childhood. He was a NBS: a Natural Born Salesman, plunged in a class of mathematicians and technical students. Ever since graduating, Armand has coached the heads of our luxury divisions in revenue generation matters including optimizing sales revenues and customer management Throughout my years as CEO of various luxury brands, I have called upon him to help me sharpen the skills of my sales teams. Together, we have devised ingenious schedules & schemes such as additional sales programs, after-sales turnaround commissions, after-hours sales bonuses, and a vast variety of incentives to motivate the troops on qualitative achievements such as consumer satisfaction, sell-out ratios and reorder rates. I have no reservation in recommending Armand as an outstanding coach, consultant and magician in all sales related matters.”
