Jay really tailored his approach to fulfill our needs...

Our office had the pleasure of working with Jay Johnson in a training environment. We brushed up on business development techniques and learned a lot about how and why people interact with each other. The session was engaging and the discussions were lively because Jay really tailored his approach to fulfill our needs as professionals in the insurance industry.

I highly recommend ...

I have had a chance to observe a number of presentations and trainings that Jay has delivered. In all of the presentations, Jay was very personable, knowledgeable, and provided a wealth of knowledge about very timely topics. I highly recommend that anyone will want to be a part of his seminars on reading Body Language.

The warmest recommendation from me.

I had the pleasure of attending the seminar “Dealing With Difficult People” and was first and foremost entertained and while entertained extremely eager to learn. The way Jay Johnson approached the subject and shared his knowledge was on a level that was easily adaptable and left you curious for more. Jay has an exceptional way of getting you engaged and involved and for me, that meant learning a lot which I am going to use in my everyday life. The warmest recommendation from me.
