Thomas Reidy is a speaker, author and an authority on entrepreneurship. He is a graduate of St. John Fisher College and holds an advanced studies certificate in Executive Leadership: Preparing for an Uncertain Future, from Cornell University. In addition, he holds a Master of Science Degree from the College for Financial Planning.
With over 30 years of accomplishments in building and managing sales organizations, he is the only expert of his type to appear 12 consecutive times in Who's Who in America.
In 1995 Tom became the Rochester division manager for a national investment firm. He started from nothing; recruited, and supervised a sales force that was recognized as having the highest per-capita sales growth in the country-- all within 18 months.
In January 2002, Tom unveiled his business development coaching program. He offers a unique selling proposition system and philosophy:
I coach entrepreneurs that rather than building their business models, solely from the products they wish to sell, they should instead understand the customers' desires for avoiding pains and easily solving time consuming problems. Sellers using that buying psychology are on the road to becoming pre-eminent in the marketplace-- even in highly competitive fields.
Tom's latest book is: "How to Rapidly Double (or Better!) Your Client Base." The book reveals the newest secrets to online marketing success; written for non-tech savvy website owners seeking a greater ROI for their online presence.
