What other people say about Jack Pachuta

Wow! What an exciting and informative session you provided for our 150 officers. Your presentation was entertaining, and everyone came away with principles that can be practiced in our everyday situations. Your style and materials are very focused to what we need to make a difference in a very crowded field of competitors.
Larry D. Flowers, Executive Vice President
FIRST LIBERTY BANK, Macon, GA

Everyone walked away with a renewed appreciation for the power of negotiation and a much better understanding of the styles and techniques that lead to win-win outcomes. Furthermore, you kept us entertained and the day seemed to fly by; no easy feat for eight hours of "training."
Brad Williams, Vice President
NORTHWESTERN INCENTIVE SERVICES, Minneapolis, MN

You have an excellent focus on practical strategies rather than theoretical ideas. The program moved along well - there were no dead spots. You bring an appropriate level of energy and excitement to the floor. Your program and your presentation were indeed fun, enjoyable and beneficial.

You were able to hold my attention for three and one-half hours. That's quite an accomplishment. A lot of material was presented, but I was able to walk away with several practical ideas for improving my communication and negotiating skills. I would not hesitate to sign up for a future seminar that you might be presenting.
Robert Smith, Assistant Corporate Controller
JOHNSON CONTROLS, INC., Milwaukee, WI

I wanted to thank you for the tremendous afternoon we spent with you. There was a lot of material to cover in five hours, but you did a great job keeping things moving and keeping us focused.
William Swets, Group Vice President
CORT/INSTANT FURNITURE RENTAL, Grand Rapids, MI

Just a short note on how I am using the principles picked up in your seminar. It could not have come at a better time. I was in the middle of renegotiating with our long term linen supplier . . . approximately $2.5 over two years. The result - an overall savings of $100,000!
Chuck Edmonds, Area Manager
CORT HOUSEWARES, Tucker, GA

While we have read books, listened to tapes, and attended seminars that covered the topics of negotiating and personality profiles, your presentation brought all of these ideas together for us. Your concise well-designed workbook will become a frequently used resource for us.
Dr. Jay Muzio & Irene Muzio
SOUTHLAND DENTAL CARE, Hayward, CA

Your seminar will be a valuable asset for all who attended. Thank you once again and feel confident that Local 103 will recommend your seminar to others in the labor movement.
Bruce Tarvin, President

I particularly enjoyed your approach to negotiating and how you simplified the negotiation process. I also felt that the pointers you gave were not only worthwhile for banking but for life situations as well . . . please give me a call if you have interest in discussing the possibility of doing a strategic planning session for our firm.
Dennis A. Staaland, Senior Vice President and Trust Officer

The two-day seminar was very much needed. I believe all of U. S. Bank's sales force should have the knowledge you presented in those two days. Your skills, ability, and information regarding negotiating were very effective and were well received. It was a pleasure to attend your presentation.

Thank you for an insightful, entertaining, and very worthwhile afternoon. You captured and held the interest of the audience the moment they entered the room. The three directors thought so highly of your ability to present negotiations techniques to a mixed audience that we are recommending you to present at the first statewide Labor-Management Conference.
Ilene Cohen-Leefer, Executive Director

Jeffrey R. Braun, Management Club Chairperson

Over the past 40 years I imagine I have attended over 100 seminars/workshops, etc. I would rate most of them as average or poor. Once in a great while you hit the jackpot and find that the speaker really knows the subject and, in addition, can articulate the message. Your presentation was outstanding. Your handouts were excellent. I'm glad I attended, it was an excellent use of my time. Keep up the good work.
Michael J. Conway, Associate Executive Director
THE FAIRFIELD COUNTY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, Trumbull, CT


The handouts were well designed for comprehension and note taking, they will be a valuable resource. I also like the way you personalized them. You certainly enjoy doing these seminars, and your enthusiasm had a beneficial effect on our group.
