"This workshop was an eye-opening excellent experience enjoyed by all! All ideas and customized strategies will be implanted in the everyday sales operation and sales meetings. Key selling techniques and the "reversed" marketing plan will be exercised".
Anonymous Workshop Attendee Evaluation

Hospitality marketing strategies delivered with honest candor, deep passion, classic anecdotes, compelling arguments and the right touch of humor.

Brudney has developed a unique template for sales, catering and conference service associates for understanding and guidance in selling in today's new business paradigm. Elements include new market intelligence tools, meeting and event planner hot buttons, technology based v. relationship based selling skills plus shared tips on keeping prospects engaged, account "drilling", selling "up" and classic closing techniques.

Brudney uses an engaging manner and puts his audiences at ease quickly, drawing upon past experiences as a child actor, baseball player, tour escort, radio and television newsman and teacher prior to his distinguished career as a hotel sales and marketing director and today as a professional management and marketing consultant.

Brudney is a masterful storyteller who has regaled audiences worldwide with his most welcomed style of honest candor, deep passion, classic anecdotes, compelling arguments and always with the right touch of humor. He never fails to get his audiences to think nor to come away with something with which to relate.
