John did a terrific job a getting inside our industry quickly in order to understand the challenges owners were facing. His program was flexible and on target. Reception was great and, as important, his follow up with those who had questions was superb.

John Martinka presented pragmatic information that every business owner or CEO can benefit from. His growth strategies and tactics work. His talk was upbeat, he kept the audiences attention with dynamic stories, examples and generated their participation with thought provoking questions. I recommend you have John speak to your group, especially if you want results!

The last time a speaker grabbed our audience like this was when we had Dr. Spitzer, now Gonzaga University’s President. That’s about the highest complement I can pay.

I was fortunate to witness your seminar. Your use of direct quotes, anecdotes and lots of stories captivated your audience for three hours – not bad when you consider the class was after business hours. Your students had more energy on the way out than on the way in. I peeked at some of the evaluation forms. One student summed it up perfectly, “John really knows his material. He made a complicated topic easy to learn.”

“The information you provided was a wake-up call to our members.”
Dick Watson, Secretary-Treasurer, Washington Motorcoach Association.
“I found John’s talk on “Thriving in a turbulent economy” was filled with useful, practical information that caused us to think about our businesses. Most capturing, though, was the way he wove his important points together through his heart-warming story of taking his father on a trip to his European homeland. Very engaging story!”
Rhoberta Shaler, Consultant, Speaking About Work
“John’s real life experiences of working with a variety of businesses and industries make him a valuable and interesting speaker. Any business owner would benefit from John’s talk and advice.”
