Discover How America’s FIRST Master Sommelier Can Help You Win More Clients And Generate Referrals FASTER and EASIER Than Ever Before! When you’re trying to close a high net-worth client you’ve got to impress. And the first way to impress them is by giving them an experience they’ve never had before. When you treat your clients like royalty, you instantly become the ONLY firm they choose to invest in. Eddie Osterland, America’s First Master Sommelier, will help you create an experience your clients and prospects will remember for months and years to come. Eddie believes that food and wine are the international currency for connection. When it comes to your clients, you want to show them the very best. Every single marketing and sales dollar has to be spent carefully to obtain the highest result. Eddie’s signature Client Experience programs will help you do just that. Eddie’s Client Experience programs will set you apart from the competition to make you the market leader, closing more deals and generating more referrals than standard sales strategies. His interactive experience fits in with the marketing plans you already have, augmenting your marketing campaign to attract the right buyers to your organization. Client Experience programs: • Passport to the Wines of the World Client & Prospect Reception One of the biggest struggles when hosting a high-end client reception is getting them to move through the area, instead of simply camping out by the bar or food and leave without ever interacting with your sales team. In this event, Eddie will meticulously create stations that you can use to spread your prospects through the reception - whether you want them to meet specific sales people throughout the evening or experience your products first-hand. Each guest will receive a Passport - designed to mimic a real U.S. Passport, that will help guide them through 5 stations at your reception. As they sample Eddie’s “Power Pairings”, people will discover how food & wine need to amplify each other’s assets. People will be encouraged to taste the food & wine together in the mouth…here, true synergy [1+1 = 3 ] will show people how wine should be perceived as a condiment, rather than as a beverage. By delivering this one-of-a-kind experience, Eddie ensures that your event becomes a focal point of conversation - they’ll return home with their “branded” Passports and tell their friends, business associates, and peers about the experience they had. And, they’ll remember you fondly when it comes time to make the sale. • Power Entertaining Dinner with Keynote When you want to host a memorable dinner for your VIP clients, traditional surf & turf won’t leave the impression you want. Instead, offer your clients exceptional cuisine paired with unique food-wines that most people have never before experienced. In this “During Dinner” event Eddie utilizes pairs of wines to enhance your client event dinner, and will work with your chef to custom-design a dinner unlike any others they have seen. And he’ll speak during your dinner to not only entertain your clients, but teach them his Seven Power Entertaining Tips taken from his book, Power Entertaining: Secrets to Building Lasting Relationships, Hosting Unforgettable Events, and Closing Big Deals from America’s 1st Master Sommelier. During this dinner, your clients will discover how to entertain differently so that they become even more influential in their own circles. They’ll discover how to wow their friends, their clients, and their peers with entertaining that goes beyond expectations.

You were the star of the evening and had the crowd eating out of your hands from the get-go.

Thank you for an engaging, entertaining and educational event. Your presentation followed a long day of presentations and panel discussions and proved to be an energetic counterpoint to the day's events. You were the star of the evening and had the crowd eating out of your hands from the get-go. I will seek to take my own entertaining level up a notch as a result of some of your lessons.

Your presentation was the event that our leadership and their guests enjoyed the most. I even saw people carrying your book to read on the plane as they were heading back to the airport. You are impactful in your ability to convey the art of your skills. We truly enjoyed your tips and tricks on how to make guests walk away feeling truly special.
