SALES TRAINING TESTIMONIALS
You clearly delivered the best sales seminar I have ever attended by cutting through all the clutter that exists.
"Victor took the personal skill sets of our sales team and crafted a sales presentation that took our closing rate from 20% to 75% in the first month.
Victor provides what I call a "game changer" to our business."
The right amount of humor with the right amount of knowledge makes for the perfect speaker.
"Thank you so much for the seminar you presented...your presentation was educational and insightful. You were able to clearly communicate strategies and techniques that will help us be more effective in our delivery.
"I am confident that the implementation of your recommendations will result in an improvement in our closing ratio."
Rene' Turner, Sr. Vice-President, Primerica Financial Services
Our group is made up of highly accomplished managers with years of experience…, but you completely captured them with your energy, conviction...truth of your message. Terrific!
"I’ve had support for, and advice on, my speaking career over the years, but spending a day with Victor is clearly in a class all its own. Victor brings all of his talents and energy to focus on the essence of what a speaker has to offer.
"With an incredible sensitivity to each individual, he masters the best presentation possible and even makes it flow so magically that it becomes completely natural in its delivery. Whatever he charges, I’m confident it’s worth ten times that amount in ultimate success."

Hi Victor! Your speech took a large burden of my shoulders, I thought I had everything figured out about what I wanted to do with my life. When I found out I did not, I was stuck. Thank you for your speech and I hope you never stop doing what you do because your one speech changes a person life!

On the "Cold Calling Success" - Sales Training Workshops
"I was in your sessions (Cold Caling Success) yesterday...I truly enjoyed both your sessions. I went to a networking function after conference, tried your strategy for getting an appointment and guess what it actually worked, I got an appointment for next week. Thanks again."
Jana L. Johnson, Foundation Services, LLC
"Your presentation (Cold Calling Success) made such a good impression on me, that I actually used some of your cold calling methods to get a meeting at the conference. When I approached my prospect she immediately, put up some resistance, and I was able to break those defenses down to get her to be willing to make the appointment. I appreciate the work that you have done and your willingness to share with others."

I am really benefiting from your motivational articles. My major problem is public speaking or addressing any meeting. I don't know what happens.... Please give me your advice.
Victor, Thanks for the information and keep up the good work!
I am an educationist and work for an educational company. I read your poem on 'Leadership' and liked it a lot. On your behalf, can I read it to some teachers and principals who are attending a workshop? Can I also give them a copy of the poem if they ask for it?

"Rare is the opportunity to be part of a class that truly provides both form and substance to the selling process. You clearly delivered the best sales seminar I have ever attended by cutting through all the clutter that exists. I unequivocally recommend your program to anyone interested in improving their approach. They would not gain a mere inch, but several miles over the competition, we certainly have."
Victor Lue-Yat,CEO DocuGreen.com
"Thanks for the inspiration and the laughs. You are a great, great speaker, and that is not a common skill, even amongst the greatest leaders I’ve been privileged to hear in my life. I would put you right up there with President Clinton, and while you might dismiss my approbation of your skills,know that there is this light that shines in your eyes and this genuine smile that breaks through and says 'I’m your friend, I have what you need, and I will help you'. Thanks again. You have affected my life in a very positive way, and I am grateful! Thank You."
David G. Figueroa, Manager - Intel Corporation

"Victor, I love your style of presentation. You put on no airs of grandiosity. You are not a get rich quick preacher-kind of rah-rah motivational speaker with a lot of fluff and no substance."
and information that I have learned in just a few
short hours is priceless. Thank you so much for your help and
Scott Feinerman , Heart of Miami Company

Andy A. Herrera, Diversity Programs
Just wanted to thank you for such a great weekend at the Collegiate Leadership Academy in New York. It was great to hear you reiterate how important the things we know we have to do to get a good job...it's all common sense, but when we hear someone like you talk about it, we tend NOT to take it for granted anymore. Thanks for being such an inspiration.
Nicole Hoffman, DECA
Yes, our conference was great and Victor was a huge success!!! I am still getting lots of positive feedback and requests for his contact information. Yes, I am pushing to have Victor at our National conference in Orlando. Once again, thanks! Victor, you were awesome!!!
Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing your insights.
Thank you, thank you! Fabulous tips. I am even more inspired!
Hola Victor. Thank you very much… you have become one of our Hispanic role model. Thank you very much and remember you are always welcome at OU!!
Hola Victor! Your motivational speech was AWESOME. You hit a Grand Slam. Your talk was very motivating and inspirational. In talking to some of the folks who were in attendance, they all agreed that your message was very well received.
Orlando Montan, Verizon
Possibly the most stinging and at the same time motivating words of the entire article "...now the television become your new, best friend." They sting like the voice of your conscience and yet motivate when you are willing to admit they are true.
Thanks for the shove.
The reading of your poem, "The True Leadership Treasure",
was a success. Everybody applauded and roared. Thanks again!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful story,...means so much to me. Thanks again.
I saw you doing a workshop and was terribly impressed with
the way those young people responded to you. I, too, try
to connect with the students with humor and respect.
I wish you much continued success...you certainly deserve
I love the website. It's very interactive and informative. Words cannot express the joy I get every time I refer someone to your site or if see an article from you.
Just wanted to let you know that Victor was amazing. The
students really enjoyed meeting him. He was funny and
insightful. He challenged them not to "just go
along" with life but to be proactive about their own
Thanks so much,
Thank you so
much for your wonderful reading material. It's
In today's economical climate, it takes more than a positive attitude and a "smooth sales presentation" to actualize a high success rate in closing deals. Victor Antonio shares keen insights into the buyer's psychological perspective and sets forth a progressive series of unique techniques to methodically stimulate the assurance of a sale. His workshop will make even the most experienced salesperson "rethink" his sales approach! Thank You, Victor!
Marlene Webb, Vitality Connection
First I want you to know i have watched all your videos today and in 13 years of speaking you are at the top of th list in passion, humor and for me who has seen everyone from Zig Ziglar to President Reagan you are amazing!
BEST Motivational Speech EVER!
Watch it and tell me if you agree.
He is without a doubt on the cutting edge of providing sales training for the new age. I have been to many seminars and some of them by the top names in the industry including Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins, Anthony Robbins and my favorite, Jim Rohn. Victor can definitely hold his own with them."
After the 'Dare to Dream' Speech
Your [keynote] speech was AWESOME. You hit a Grand Slam. Your talk was very motivating and inspirational.
