“Tom Freese delivered a very compelling Question Based Selling training session to our sales team last week. Over the weekend guys were working on how to incorporate what they learned on their own, without prompting from me. I recommended QBS based on our experience last week, and that my top performers felt it was the most impactful sales training they have ever had.”
Scott Carlyle, aPriori, VP of Worldwide Sales
“The best thing about Tom Freese’s work in Question Based Selling is that the techniques he outlines actually stick, making it easier for our sales team to integrate into their daily routine. QBS has truly improved our sales effectiveness across the board.”
Mitzi Rettinger, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Cerilliant
“Tom Freese has rewritten “’the rule book’ when it comes to implementing an effective sales methodology, as his forward thinking essentially obsoletes much of the historical sales training nonsense that has been relied upon for decades. If you are in sales, marketing, or management, and you are not implementing the strategies and techniques outlined in this book, you will likely be left in the dust!”
Greg Ablett, Senior Vice President, West Corporation
“There is simply nothing out there that can impact, or boost the effectiveness of an entire sales team, more than Question Based Selling (QBS). As a bonus, Tom has taken his vision to the next level with the release of SalesForce 2020.”
Marcy Campbell, VP Worldwide Sales, Qubole Data Services
“Thomas A. Freese’s latest book, Sales Force 2020, is a must-read for any organization positioning themselves for the future as the selling environment continues to change with the inclusion of social media and new technologies. The way we communicate with others is changing, and how the sales process is being executed must continue to evolve. What may have worked 20 years ago is not going to work today.”
Steve Johnson, President, Corus 360
“Sales Force 2020 is a must-read for anyone involved in today’s ever-changing business environment.

Everybody wins! Thank you.”
Jim Wambach, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Chemdex Corporation
“On the evaluations that our salespeople filled out after the QBS training, I don’t think there was a score on any of them less than an 8, with the majority being all 10’s. Considering our reputation as a very difficult audience, those scores, in perspective, are really off the charts.”
Mike Sheehy, Vice President Sales, EMC Corporation
“Question Based Selling was a great success! Having spent money on training with limited results, it was nice to hear people saying that QBS was the best sales training they ever had. By the middle of the first day, everyone had bought in. By the end of the second day, people were truly excited and anxious to get back out into the field. I would recommend this program to anyone!”
