I met Brian many years ago when I was Vice President of Sales at a medical equipment company. Brian helped our company by exponentially growing sales for us in Latin America, California, and Nevada. In addition, Brian served as an advisor for marketing and sales initiatives we enacted prior to the company being acquired by a larger firm. Although our paths diverged professionally, Brian and I have remained friends and are both actively involved in professional and personal development, often acting as a sounding board for one another.
If you are in need of growing your business, or to grow in your leadership capacity, I highly recommend Brian as a coach and consultant as he constantly and consistently invests a tremendous amount of effort in being that best that he can be, and helping others do the same.

Brian Dunkel is a true sales professional. I have had the opportunity to work with Brian in creating an independent sales organization specializing in capital medical equipment and disposables. Brian led the charge in developing a go-to-market strategy and then executed by building a direct sales channel that grew sales in multiples year over year for our manufacturer-clients. If you need help with accelerating sales growth and increasing your market share, you needn’t look elsewhere for expertise in doing so.

I had the opportunity to work with Brian Dunkel at Philips Healthcare for two years in my position as Global Marketing Manager of Surgery. Brian, although not having a medical technical, vocational background, picked up on both surgical methodology and terminology very quickly. His professionalism with customers and his ability to put the customers’ needs first made him a valuable asset to the client and to the company. Brian has a profound interest and knowledge in many subjects and his insightful business skills make him beneficial to any organization in any industry. I worked extensively with Brian and got to know him as a warm and caring person, both insightful and driven. I highly recommend Brian in any endeavor.

What a pleasure it was to learn valuable techniques to improve Complete Landsculpture’s overall profit and growth. Brian’s material was very interesting and himself very knowledgeable. Being in sales, I found a lot of my sales techniques coincide with his teachings, which are sound and proven. Brian’s program was so valuable that I intend to model his format and for myself to be more of a sales guru. My entire staff will benefit from Brian’s program and I would be happy to refer your knowledge to any of my clients and other companies in which I converse with. It was a great pleasure to interact with him throughout his presentation. Thank you for that opportunity.

On behalf of our Milpitas Rotary Club we would to thank you for your excellent presentation on “How To Attract Members through Branding, Marketing, and Sales.” You did an excellent job in giving us ideas that work in attracting members to our club. One of the main areas we can work on is listening to people to understand their hesitation to join a club like Rotary. We have to show flexibility in reaching out to future club members and finding ways that we can motivate them to join our Club and when possible to accommodate their needs. With much gratitude, Victor.

Rotary clubs hear a lot of speakers but very few are as passionate about their life work as Brian is. His presentation came at an opportune time for us as we seek to develop a plan for growth in membership. He is well versed in the dynamics involved in achieving growth and offered several insights toward success. His presentation style easily held our attention as he spoke from experience; it was genuine, not rehearsed. Sharing his own experiences authenticated what he said, something we all appreciated. I would heartily recommend him to anyone interested in growing a business or an organization.
– Linda Anderson, President of the Rotary Club of Mission San Jose, CA
