"After attending Sam's keynote, we immediately used his methods. It gave us a HUGE edge and lots of confidence. The result: we landed a $4 million dollar account, with more to come. I'm incredibly excited because we just scratched the surface of utilizing what we learned. What Sam shared is one of the biggest revelations I've had in my 24 years in the business."

"For the second year in a row - and you are the only speaker in our national conference's history whom we've ever booked two years in a row - all I can say is thank you! You once again "wowed" all of us with your program. Your balance of information, humor, and enthusiasm will help everyone in the room be better at what we do."
George Harrison, NMLS
Senior Vice President
U.S. Bank

"All day, I have been searching for words to describe what we were lucky enough to experience yesterday. And honestly, I’m at a loss for words because I have never experienced anything like it. There is no doubt that you are a master in your area of expertise and that the wealth of knowledge and experience you have shared with us was simply "mind-blowing". However, what impressed me the most was that you did not waste one moment talking about yourself, your achievements, your business, your titles, your awards, your clients, and your successes. Instead, you dedicated one hundred percent of your time to helping us. And fyi…New York City folks are not an easy crowd. Before you, the last standing ovation we had for our monthly program was in 2016. Forever, I’ll consider your event to be the highlight of my time serving as president."


National Association

"Sam is one of those rare speakers who provides attendees with actionable intelligence. His keynote score was 9.74! Wow!!!! The Open Bar only received an 8.2. We are in the business of meetings.
