Tim Coogan Vice President, Cisco Systems
Tom has worked with my team on three different occasions over the past 6 years and each time the results have been tremendous. His results driven approach to communication and performance is spot on. No matter how good your team is Tom can help them be even better and have some fun along the way.
Judy Frank Branch Director for Central California, MCI
The several times you have spoken for us have significantly transformed how my organization approaches their business. The results have been phenomenal, 48% growth over one year. Tom, you’re ability to target core issues, creatively design a series of exercises which make the concept real, and communicate the key messages focused on results is a true talent. As far as I’m concerned… you’ve been chosen for greatness.
Ken Thompson Juniper Networks
I have known Tom for over 10 years, it’s an honor to call Tom a good friend after years of working with him. His thought leadership is second to none… Many a time I would be in a jam and Tom has always been there to help me work thru it. I have also used Tom for leadership/sales training for my employees. Very few people have the capability to get people to step outside there comfort zone to grow personally or hone their business skills.”
Eric Snider VP of Sales, Shea Homes
Tom McCarthy is best in class in motivating and bringing the best out of a team. He is both dynamic and approachable in his coaching and presentation skills. Each of his programs delivered outstanding results and raving fans among participants. I hired Tom several times and I will continue to do so. He inspires and produces exceptional outcomes.
Kim Firek Division Vice President, CTX Mortgage
The impact you had during our recent sales rally was tremendous. I have attended many a seminar in my day and I would like you to know that you are high on my list of great speakers and one of the best I have had the privilege to hear.
John Kissane VP of Sales, Hewlett Packard
Tom is a tremendous person. He has a great ability to motivate and inspire people. Tom provided motivational sessions to my Sales team and I can honestly say it had a huge impact in our morale and results, helping us achieve the #1 operation. I also leveraged Tom for his Public Speaking classes, and having taken many over my career can say Tom’s was at the top. My entire team who took the training were all extremely impressed and they all became much more effective presenters. I always feel better after spending time with Tom.
Alina Ehrlich Senior Director, Merck
Thank you for your fabulous presentation at our regional meeting. Numerous representatives told me they really appreciated having a motivational speaker that offered advice directed at their ability to improve their effectiveness, rather than the typical speech about the speaker’s road to greatness. Your session had significant impact on me personally. I stretch myself, always remembering your words. I hope we have future opportunities to partner together.
Julie Foudy US Womens National Soccer Team
Tom was great! Our team was struggling, but he got us to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and change our attitude. Our team began to believe that we would start winning games and that we were a championship team!
Jeff Van Mater Operation Director, Cisco Systems
I have worked with Tom professionally at Cisco Systems in several areas both as an Executive Coach and a Trainer. In each category Tom was a perfect 10. As an executive coach, Tom was able to work with me several times per month to develop me professionally for the “next level” within my company. During my year of executive coaching I had my best year ever and my income was also up significantly. As a trainer, I attended a multi day presentation skills class at our corporate HQ. Tom taught the class to multiple line of business leaders and was effective at making better both seasoned professionals as well as colleagues with emerging skills. All in attendance greatly benefitted and again, I was able to use the skills with my direct/extended teams and customers engagements. Net/Net I am a big fan of Tom and I highly recommend him.
Doug Good Senior Director of Engineering, Cisco Systems
Tom has acted as my personal coach and as an instructor for my team. He has great perspective and brings tons of energy into his engagements. Tom has an incredible ability to take professional challenges and break them down into actionable steps that lead to long term improvements.

Tom was a key note speaker for our organization and delivered an incredible and practical message. My team left with multiple take-aways and we highly recommend his work in any capacity. You will be impressed and inspired by Tom McCarthy!
David Elliott Peak Performance Coach for the Arsenal and Liverpool Soccer teams of the English Premier League
I have been to several of Tom’s outstanding seminars and we talk frequently. Tom and his work were instrumental in helping me to prepare the Arsenal football team for their FA Cup victory!
Steve Zielke VP of Sales, Cyan Inc.
Our company hired Tom for his FIRE-UP two-day seminars. This was one of the best events that most of us have attended in the last decade. It was not only applicable to the job but also aspects of it were applicable to our personal lives. Tom is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the material. And the fact that he kept an entire room full of multi-tasking (short attention span) salespeople focused and actively involved, interested, and even entertained, for two full days is truly remarkable.
Kevin Wulff President and CEO, American Sporting Goods
Thanks for speaking at our Global Sales Meeting in Newport Beach. You did a great job and the impact of your energy and message was dramatic! We received a lot of positive feedback on your presentation and we are utilizing your key points in many of our brand openings and presentations.
Dawn Maroney Chief Sales Officer, Caremore
Tom is outstanding in so many ways it is difficult to limit my recommendation to a brief few words. He is exceptional in every aspect of his business with mentoring and guiding organizations to improve performance in a fast environment. The improvement in performance for my company has resulted in more than 30% growth with utilizing his formula to success. He has personally mentored me for over 10-years and I am thankful to him for dedicating his time.”
