“Bob and John’s training material is the best that I’ve seen, in over 20 years of servicing the industry.  All manufacturers should take the opportunity to attend in person, or send their sales teams.  Their material provides an introduction to concepts that take years to learn from scratch”. – Todd MacGrath | Director Conventional Grocery | Presence Marketing/Dynamic Presence – East Presence Marketing Dynamic Presence

I wanted to write and say thank you for an excellent seminar last week on the how to navigate the natural channel.  Your insights and thoughts on the industry were spot-on and I truly appreciated the curriculum and flow.  Day 2 was especially insightful for me while Day 1 was a great refresher course.

This seminar came at a great time for me as it has been six years since I carried the bag and that was in the frozen DSD business of the CPG industry….digging into the natural channel was what I needed.  Obviously, your pedigree in the industry along with the other speakers made this seminar what it was…so thanks for sharing your “trade secrets”. – James Richter  |  VP, Sales Angie’s Artisan Treats
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to join your seminar- it was one of the best educational events on the US market/ Natural products strategy  I have ever been at. Please count me in for the next event. – Liliana Cantrell LANDI Organic Baby Food

Talking to Jenny on the way home we decided that your seminar was one of the most valuable interactions we have had this year. There were so many high powered industry people and the learnings from UNFI, Whole Foods,Trader Joes, and SPINS were invaluable. Congratulations on such a successful seminar.Jocelyn Levesque, Director of Sales, Heel USA

“We  have no doubt that the two days we spent at the NPCI Sales Seminar and Networking event were pivotal in the future success of our company. As a start-up, we don’t have a lot of cash and were concerned about making the investment. Needless to say, the seminar would have been a bargain at ten times the price. We learned in 2 days what we would have learned the hard (and expensive) way over 2 years and met many peers and experts who will be invaluable contacts down the road. Our investors, our customers and we thank you for creating the program. We recommend it as a  “must-do” for any company in the early stages of launching a natural or specialty products company or looking to succeed in those channels.” – Courtney Nichols & Gordon Gould Co-Founders/CEO SmartyPants Inc.

I wanted to thank you for running a very professional and successful seminar this week. It was great value for the money. I have learned a great deal that will save me both time and money in the future. In addition to this I have made some great connections. The networking element of this seminar was unexpected but ultimately a very significant reward for going. Thanks Bob! Please keep me posted on future courses.Sanjiv Patel, Founder/CEO, Holy Cow, LLC
