Tom Stoyan at AIC/ Tom Stoyan à l’AIC.

Attended an interesting meeting organised by AIC which featured a presentation by the well-known Tom Stoyan. In his own, inimitatable style, Tom was able to capture the interest of the audience, draw them out, challenge traditional attitudes to selling and show, by example, that selling does not mean “hitting the customer on the head with a canned monologue”.

J’ai eu le plaisir d’assister aux présentations de M. Stoyan à plusieurs reprises et dois avouer qu’aucune d’elles ne se répète ni ne se contredit. Il est évident que Tom est un vrai converti et qu’il prêche du fond du cœur (avec chiffres à l’appui). Mes collègues anglophones ont de la chance qu’ils peuvent comprendre les allocutions de M. Stoyan – il serait peut-être utile de mettre ces renseignements au service des francophones.

If you are interested in improving your sales, by all means, get more info on Tom’s approach – it will help you to reap great benefits. Qui sait, peut-être Tom consentirait de traduire son message en français également et ainsi augmenter la portée de ses présentations.

Tom Stoyan is not only a good speaker but a good man. I had the privilege of meeting him and speaking with him at length a couple of years ago and I still tell people about his kind words and giving spirit.

You are so right, Kate. One reaps what one sows. I wish more people were as generous as Tom.
