Dave brings a terrific blend of efficiency, speed to market, agility and hands-on assistance to his clients. I've had the pleasure of working with him on two key initiatives. After implementing his eLearning program, sales effectiveness grew by over 60% in the first year. Furthermore, his Algario PowerLearn™ Sales Development System resulted in significant improvements in customer call-backs and closed sales. The programs are great, but the implementation and customized approach are outstanding and help drive results.

Sonny Basi, Director, Western Canada, CIBC:

Our organization used the Algario PowerLearn™ Sales Development System which included Question Based Selling™. Our results after the learning showed an uplift in sales activities, client call-back ratio and overall confidence with our sales staff. Dave is a wealth of knowledge and was easy to work with to determine our training needs. I have no reservations about recommending Dave and the Algario PowerLearn™ Sales Development System training.

Nick Direnzo, SVP – Personal Banking Services, Alterna Savings:

... Algario and its Question Based Selling™ approach has turned our staff onto the many sales and service opportunities that exist in every encounter they have. We are starting to see much improved results in call-backs, referrals, appointments, and sales using the technique of creating curiosity in the individual with whom you are speaking. Most importantly our frontline people are experiencing a greater degree of confidence which is so critical to being successful...

Bryan Rothery, Director Business Performance, Alterna Savings (21 Years as Branch Manager, TD Canada Trust):

The main reason why we wanted to implement the PowerLearn™ Program was because it offered a way to introduce a level of sales effectiveness that broke the mold... and, as a brand manager, we recognized that none of the major banks had anything like this.

Bob Tillmann, Vice President, Manulife One:

David Batchelor (Algario President) has demonstrated to me consistently his interest in understanding the needs of our business and using that knowledge to deliver timely, effective, and quality programs.

Gary Laughlin, Regional Vice President, Mortgage Sales Force, RBC Royal Bank:

I find you and your team of professionals to be well schooled, knowledgeable, detail oriented and extremely competent. The scope of Algario's background, as well as your general knowledge of related fields, enriched our program and produced an exceptional end result.

Julia Henry, Personal Banker, Alterna Savings:

I couldn't believe it... Algario has helped me from COMMODITIZING myself. I didn't want to be one of those cookie-cutter types of bankers. By using Diagnostic questions... I was able to stand out from the crowd.... I continued with Issue and Implication questions and this made our customers happy that someone was not just looking out for the FI but that their needs were being addressed.... I was just happy that I avoided commoditizing myself, I was able to have a more productive conversation and I have managed to increase my customer's loyalty to our company.
