 Sam Geist Biography

For nearly 20 years, Sam Geist has distinguished himself as a professional speaker, consultant, and facilitator to a diverse group of organizations across North and South America. He remarks, "As a speaker and facilitator, my role is to motivate, to stimulate, to challenge, to ask questions, to search for answers. I always ask, 'Why should someone do business with you rather than someone else?' It's the toughest question I know. One that every organization must ask everyday—and must answer honestly."

In today's highly competitive business environment, Geist challenges organizations to take a close look at what sets them apart from the competition. It's no longer simply about quality, service, and operations – it's how you package it all together and what you do to be perceived as different, special, and better than others. Says Geist, "Questions inspire thought and answers motivate action."

Utilizing his own business experiences as a former owner/operator of a national sporting goods chain and as president of a marketing and consulting firm, he customizes motivational "ideas" seminars, training sessions, and hands-on interactive workshops to provide focused, actionable solutions. Programs center on business strategy, leadership, customer service, the changing marketplace and maximizing staff productivity. Participants leave more informed, energized and, most importantly, ready to act.

Geist is the author of Execute…or Be Executed; Why Should Someone Do Business With You...Rather Than Someone Else?; and Would You Work for You?
