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.
Jeff Sharritts Cisco Systems, Operations Director
Thank you again for speaking at our leadership meeting this week. Your session was one of the best leadership courses I’ve had in my 10 year leadership career. The session was informative, fun and very relevant. Most importantly, the team got a great deal from the session.
Richard Davies Managing Director, Coca Cola
Tom’s trainings condense a lifetime of study into an insightful, clear and compelling system. His trainings are remarkable!
John Columbus Systems Engineering Director, Cisco Systems
I have used Tom in multiple capacities over the past several years. First, we have used Tom across our organization to elevate the presentation skills of our sales engineers via his “Fire Up” training course. Feedback from the teams has been nothing short of outstanding across the board. I have also used Tom as a personal mentor and career coach. He has a wonderful personable style while challenging me and encouraging me to think in new ways. I highly recommend Tom McCarthy for your professional development needs.
Sandy Bertha World Champion, Professional Hydrofoil Waterskiing
Much of competition is mental prep. I knew in order for me to become the World Champion in my sport, that was an area I needed to focus on. With Tom’s positive energy skills and instructive coaching, he was able to work through my worries so that I could see the big picture — the final result — clear to end, where I would be standing on the podium excepting my award. I went into the competition so well prepared after Tom’s coaching, and as a result, I won the World Championship and set a World Record. I truly attribute a large part of this achievement to the instruction I received Tom. I have used what he taught me in many other areas of my life also. Thank you Tom!

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.
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.
Patrick Higgins Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, John Laing Homes

Robert Fisher Systems Engineering Director, Cisco Systems
Simply put, Tom in an outstanding coach. Tom helped me improve my executive presence and communications over the last few months. Tom was incredibly effective in his ability to connect with me, quickly zeroing in on areas that I needed help with and coaching me to raise my performance to the next level. The coaching experience with Tom was one of the best development activities I’ve had in the last year. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone that wants to improve their ability to effectively communicate and connect with individuals and / or audiences.
Britt Norwood Regional Sales Manager, Cisco Systems
Tom has helped me get the most out of my efforts and helped my teams accomplish more than they thought possible. Whether it begins with “pattern interupt” or “playing full out”, Tom’s phrases, techniques and stories are part of our team culture. I feel fortunate to have met Tom and would highly recommend him to anyone who is at a glass ceiling in their career and wants to breakthrough.”
Tracy Brock Vice President, UBOC Investment Services
I would like to express appreciation for your recent presentation to us. You far exceeded our expectations. You gave us four solid hours of usable ideas that will change the way we approach our jobs. Several of our people were taking action to implement your ideas within hours of your presentation. Many felt you were the best speaker we have had at our annual sales meetings.
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.”
Curtis Estes Northwestern Mutual
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!
