What Clients Are Saying

“Art’s BD Academy has been a game changer for our firm.  The sessions explore personal business development in an approachable and relevant way and are filled with examples of real-life successes from his work with other CPA firms. We’ve seen great ROI already and look forward to sending more associates to future programs.”

– Pam Metzger
Chief Marketing Officer, Porte Brown

“As a presenter, Art is engaging and spot-on every time he steps on a stage. I personally appreciate how hard he works to tailor his material to the level and needs of his audience. It takes a person who really, deep-down understands all aspects of marketing in professional services to create the kind of value Art does, time after time after time.”

Art’s ability to read and assess a firm’s growth needs is excellent. Whether the firm needs sales coaching for a partner, marketing training for staff, hiring of a marketing director, or a full-scale growth plan, I’ve witnessed his ability to rapidly transform firm cultures to create greater results and accountability for growth.”

– Allan D. Koltin, CPA, CEO
Koltin Consulting Group, Inc.

“When I began working with Art, I didn’t know the best way to go about bringing in new clients. He helped me focus my efforts on my current clients and almost immediately I received several great referrals. From there he’s kept me motivated and accountable to a pace of personal marketing that will help me rapidly build a book of business.”

“ Art worked with us to develop a marketing and growth plan that transformed our culture into one where everyone plays a role in the growth of the firm.  Over the past several years we’ve seen significant revenue contributions from our entire team at every level.  The entire firm has embraced our marketing culture and we have seen growth in our revenue well above the national average for firms of our size, thanks to Art’s approach and the culture building techniques included in our growth plan.”

-Sue Watson, Executive Vice President

“Art helped me create a personal marketing plan that made sense for me. In working the plan together, we explored new ways of nurturing client, referral, and prospect relationships that helped to fill the pipeline. And, he’s helped me to close some complex opportunities through his deep understanding of the sales process and buyer behavior.”

– Gary J. Purpura, JD,  Partner

“Art’s guacamole is the best I have ever tasted – hands down! What makes it unique is the addition of sour cream plus diced chipotle chilies in adobo sauce to make it a slightly creamy and slightly smoky. Mmmmm! As he was generous enough to share his recipe with me years ago, every time I recreate it for friends and family it is, by far, the most popular dish of the day!”

– Jamie D. Thomas
Regional Director of Marketing, BDO
