"Unbelievable experience!! This workshop lifted my visibility and my bottom line! Best training session ever! These were just of the reactions I tapped in the aftermath of last year's awesome workshop on Social Selling run by Dan Swift from Empire. And as the sales year progressed, those solutions sales people who implemented Dan's techniques averaged results almost 20% higher than their peers and our software sales at SAI Global grew 35% year on year. Preaching to the converted? Sure, why not! I will take that added edge for my best sales people every day of the week. Huge gratitude Dan Swift; as I looked back on all the numbers, you were the single best investment that I made in our Americas sales team last year".

"I have a background in social media software and it's strategic use for marketing from previous experience and my background in business school. I can easily say that Dan provided more value than the courses, articles or experience I've had in the past. He is an authority on Social Selling and really knows his stuff. Not only was the overall strategy insightful and thought-provoking, the tactics and tips he was able to demonstrate made it easy for me to make adjustments with my own social presence and how I approach social selling. His charismatic approach and prepared materials make evolving your opinion on the power of social media tangible. I would (and have recommended) Dan and Empire Selling to anyone looking to expand their knowledge and improve their presence both on and offline".

"Check out his incredible track record. Dan has all of the professional qualities and background of a leader but what truly sets Dan apart from his peers is all of the intangibles you can't put on a LinkedIn page or resume. Dan genuinely cares about everyone he interacts with - clients, colleagues, it doesn't matter. By putting people's wellbeing at the center of everything he does he inspires his team on a daily basis and makes his clients believe he can take them to a place that they can't get to on their own. Dan's the guy that gives the thoughtful keynote and is the exact same person when get gets off stage. He's incapable of not being genuine, caring is in his DNA and compassion is his primary currency. Working with or for Dan will not only make you smarter or more successful - it will make you a better person".
— Chris Curtis, Director, CreatorIQ
"I recently had the pleasure of participating in Dan’s Empire Selling class in New York City. Dan is not only very well versed in the subject matter but his passion for authentic social media presence was inspiring and contagious! What I most appreciated about Dan’s class was that he provided us with a structured approach and methodology to make social selling easy for us (sellers) to understand, while providing the tools we need to be most effective. Often times trainers forget to connect the 'why' for the audience but Dan truly engaged us with his anecdotes, passion and experience".
— Lena Budraitis, Director, Magnesol
