Testimonals

ClientsIsn't it interesting how all of these sites say basically the same thing? "We've trained many FORTUNE 500 Companies!" "We've conducted programs for over 400 of the FORTUNE 500 companies!." "Our client list contains more than half of the FORTUNE 500 companies!"

Well, since the name "FORTUNE" seems to be so impressive, we'll use it too. But we'll add something that nobody else can say: At Effective Presentations Inc., we've also worked with many of FORTUNE 500 companies - but guess which firm FORTUNE Magazine selected to train its own sales force?

The answer, of course is Effective Presentations Inc.
