“I highly recommend David Stelzl! Like many in your own network, David and I have crossed paths a few times in our career. Most recently, I’ve seen David grip a room full of security experts with his unique and engaging presentation style, educating and entertaining. Previously, At Dimension Data, David ran our security practice, and I can attest firsthand that we held him in the highest regards – among many reasons, I always thought this was due to his unyielding commitment to keeping pace with the industry. David is an asset to wherever he is putting his energies!”

Brian Linder, CISSP

Datacenter Sales Manager, Check Point Software Technologies

“Your stuff works Dave, Thanks for the advice! Talking …about technology is really tough. But when talking about Operational Efficiencies, Data Risk, or obtaining those efficiencies and Costs reductions, I can tell you my margins have doubled, sales are taken to a higher level, and the CIO/IT guy and the CFO are now only supporters or influencers, not decision makers. This has opened up a whole new sales discussion and approach.”

Doug Baker

President, ICE

“David has opened up a whole new level of business opportunity after many years of selling high-end technology solutions. Through his training and coaching program I now have the tools I need to move higher up in the companies I am working with; effective discovery strategies, executive level questions to ask, and a process to move from selling products to advising clients. One of the first opportunities we worked on went from a 65 thousand dollar assessment to over half a million in products and services! “

“…Fantastic…best I have ever attended!”

Matt Evans

Sales, ePlus Technologies

“I highly recommend David. While working at Praxis Computing, Inc, David was hired as my sales coach and business planning mentor. He played a significant role in our success selling IT security equipment and services. The House & The Cloud presentation that he devised was implemented throughout our process from seminars and events to board room presentations and deal negotiations. Furthermore David is extremely efficient and helped me to successfully leverage my calendar, utilizing time and work flow management to increase performance. In conclusion, David Stelzl’s advice is extremely valuable.”

Manuel Navarro

Sales Rep, Praxis

“…Your training workshop ROCKED!”

Jade Witte

Senior Account Manager, Nexus IS

“We recently held an educational event with David Stelzl as our keynote speaker to explain the 7 Essential Mindsets of securing critical data.  The event was held at the right time, with the right people, and at the right place and was a great success!  We had 74 people in attendance which represented 31 actual companies.  Of those, 65% signed up for a Risk Assessment that night and an additional 5 companies wanted project work done.  Since then, we’ve had two of 31 companies actually call us for help with security issues.  Both have engaged for project work.  They definitely would not have called without us doing the event.”

“Judging the success of the educational event alone, I would be thrilled.  But something very powerful happened afterwards that I did not expect.  A “Security” specialty opens doors even when my competitors are standing in them.  In two meetings last week, I was discussing critical data with business owners as a follow-up to the event. Those owners gave me access to the entire network, passwords, interviews with staff, and most importantly TIME with themselves.  I never could have had quality appointments like that without first delivering quality and value to those owners through the educational event with David Stelzl.  When time is money and every second counts, the meetings I choose to attend must be valuable.  The security specialty and Stelzl’s message has given me an open door to pinpoint the holes in security that businesses have and allows me a quality conversation to remedy those holes.  The specialty eliminates the typical roadblocks from internal/external IT people protecting their domains—even at the risk of the business being insecure.   The result: meetings that get to the REAL problem, proposals with a higher close rate, solutions that are custom designed and valuable to the owner.  Now that is a win-win.”

Nate Freeman

President, Network People

“…Your keynote message was outstanding; thought-provoking, very informative, entertaining – you delivered exactly what we were hoping for and more.  The feedback from all attendees was excellent – you were a definite hit.”

He’s helped me identify how we should be tweaking our business model and how we should be getting the message out about SDG. I highly recommend David if you are seeking a professional to help you right the ship or just to help do some slight remodeling of the boat.”
