Rick Hartnack Vice Chairman, Union Bank of California
The program you presented for us was outstanding. You energized our people and you prepared them to deal with the challenges of the marketplace.
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
Outstanding! Tom, your presentation at our 11th annual national Sales Symposium is exactly what our sales organization needed. At the heart of your Mental Diet for Success is a formula that will undoubtedly lead to higher levels of success. Here is a small sampling of the hundreds of great comments we have received about your presentation: “Of all of the symposiums, Tom’s is by far the best yet!”, “Tom is the best motivational speaker I have ever heard!”, “Tom McCarthy is the absolute BEST! When I grow up, I want to be just like Tom! Thank you so much for bringing Tom into speak, motivate and inspire us!”.
Tom, you have always delivered training that offered personal anecdotes, deep insights, optimistic thinking and solutions to challenges that will have an immediate impact on your audience. Thanks again for your contribution to our success. We look forward to working together with you in the future.
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.
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.
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!
David Ruggiero President of the Americas, Life Technologies

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.
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.”
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.
Chris Jacobson President, Gutenberg Expositions
I wanted to thank you for your energizing presentation at this years Gutenberg Festival. As one attendee commented to me as he left “Now that’s what a Keynote presentation is all about!” I must say that you delivered even more than I expected. You give people tools to take control of their lives and build the confidence necessary to do that. And above all else, you make it fun!
Eric Snider VP of Sales, Shea Homes
