Todd McLaughlin VP, Juniper Networks
I have worked with Tom as both a coach and consultant for more than 10 years. Tom has a unique ability to bring out the best in people, helping them to understand the power of clear, concise and powerful communication. I can highly recommend Tom and the enthusiasm and expertise he brings. Tom is the best investment a leader can make to develop both yourself and your team.
Brian Johnson Vice President, Precious Moments
I have worked with Tom now for over 10 years. He has always been my go-to guy for all my businesses. There are very few people on the planet that I have hired so much or that is the number one person for me to call in regards to any situations or trainings in my business. You can’t find a better coach than Tom.”

Tom McCarthy understands the inner workings of the human drive and spirit. He is able to connect with a small group or large audience in a way to help them see the issues or challenges and find the solutions to solve and move forward toward success. I am always in awe his ability to add humor and passion in a way that supports the groups he is working with to break out of the stalemate of their issue at that moment and know that this too will pass but only with the internal power that each person possesses within themselves to break free of the negativity and take control of their destiny. Yeah I think he’s pretty great and recommend him highly to any organization.
Dave West CTO of Worldwide Partner Organization, Cisco Systems
Tom has consistently delivered high impact results in my multiple engagements with him. He is a creative leader, powerful communicator, and ensures success through a proven track record. For those seeking to drive an organization to overachieve, Tom McCarthy will make it happen.
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.
Curt Reid Operations Director, Cisco Systems
Over the past 3 years Tom has provided presentation and leadership training for my sales and engineering teams. We held a series of two-day sessions with approximately 12 people attending each session. As you can imagine, there were some team members who were initially less than enthusiastic about having to attend. After the initial class, word spread quickly that this was not your “ordinary” training. First of all, Tom’s system is solid. He advocates an approach that is easily applied. I utilize the skills he teaches on a daily basis. Also, Tom leads by example. He gives 100% of his energy and enthusiasm from start to finish. He makes the material fun and interesting. Before long, everyone in the class was fully engaged in the process…sharing their ideas, volunteering to role-play and supporting their co-workers. This made it a very valuable experience for everyone. Since then, I’ve used Tom for consulting services. He has always been responsive and thoughtful in his approach. He’s very adaptive and focuses on what is required to help each individual exceed his or her personal goals. I would highly recommend Tom as a professional trainer/ consultant. The results we’ve realized have consistently exceeded our expectations.
Diane B. Gongaware Operations Director, Civilian HSR, Cisco Systems, Inc.
Tom, I thought you’d like to know how the Satisfaction Survey ratings tallied on your session with us yesterday. You scored a perfect 5 on our 1-5 scale. The team was incredibly impressed with your session, very jazzed throughout the evening, and consistently rated your session the highest value overall (ratings in total were high, so that’s a particularly strong comment).
Again, thank you for the tremendous personal effort it took to lead such a dynamic session… wish we’d had more time and we’d definitely like to do a ‘Chapter Two’ next time!
Troy McQuagge President, HealthMarkets Agency Marketing Group
Leadership is in my opinion, one of the most vital yet, misunderstood concepts in business. Tom McCarthy’s leadership principles, communication techniques and performance-oriented coaching can help any business executive become more effective. Tom understands clearly, that true business leadership is needed now, more than ever. Through his innovative programs, he equips today’s business leaders with the tools they will most need, to achieve lasting success in an ever-changing business landscape.
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.
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.”
Earl Culver Director, Oracle Corporation
It is my great pleasure to recommend Tom to any organization in need of increasing their productivity, sales effectiveness and executive level communications. The FIRE-UP Your Presentations training is high energy and absolutely the best presentation skills class that I have every participated in. Tom’s classes are by far the most beneficial classes that I have been part of.
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.
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.”
