"It is real world "meat and potatoes" that you can take home and put to work immediately. No gimmicks. I can be in charge of our marketing, getting the specific results I want. I don't have to let the marketing plans of our company be thrown around by today's urgent need, like a beach ball in the ocean. John's spreadsheets are terrific. The in-class application to my company and real take-home tools for tomorrow morning are what I liked most about Planning to Win."

It gave me a great perspective on getting into the minds of the various target markets, finding out what really matters most to them, and helping them solve some of their issues. It's easy to see how this can facilitate a strong relationship with a key referral source. Also, the networking was great.

Before, I felt like I was fishing in an ocean hoping to catch something; now I feel like I have the tools to fish in a stock pond with a bunch of hungry fish. "
