You were enthusiastically received by nearly 1,500 remodelers who were eager to hear what you had to say, then return to the worksite to put your words into action… I wish I could say that all of the over 200 speakers I work with annually were as conscientious and fun to work with as you.

As the area’s largest residential real estate company, we recently brought in Sam Silverstein–twice in a 12-month period—to address a large group of associates from our 19 St. Louis area offices. His first presentation, “No More Excuses” contained such a powerful message it became a mantra last year among our senior leadership team. Sam’s second program, “Non-Negotiable”, was equally well-received by our Associates and leadership. With both programs he effectively framed for our group of independent contractors the value of accountability in their personal and professional lives.

Employee turnover in our industry is very high. Our turnover last year was 32% but two other major companies in our industry had turnover of 100% and 300% respectively. I credit our lower turnover to the quality of the organizational culture that we created by working with Sam Silverstein.
