True Value LogoDave, you did great!! Our attendees told us you were engaging, funny and filled with down to earth advice. They want more of Dave!

— Becky Freeman,

Price Rite LogoDave’s presentation to us went very well. Our executives as well as our store management teams related well to Dave who is a “small” retail business operator with the same struggles, challenges, and occasional victories that all of them face every day. The up front time that he spent with us in our stores on 2 separate occasions allowed Dave to directly “connect” to our store managers and retail support staff at the meeting.

— Bill Britton,
Price Rite

cigar-logo..sitting in a board wrap-up meeting and they are RAVING about your seminars; saying they wrote down almost every single thing you said.Thank you for making my job easier.

NRFShould you hire Dave to speak to your group? All I can say is we have asked him to present at the National Retail Federation Big Show in New York for an unprecedented 4th consecutive year. Audiences love him!

William “Mac” McDonald, Marketing & Brand Management Coordinator
NRF

Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater SpringfieldDave spoke at the chamber annual meeting last year. They loved him. He is funny, inspiring and full of common sense ideas that every can use. It just dawned on me… he got a rousing standing ovation. I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Jeff Ciuffreda, President
Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield

Mayer Bros. Apple Products, Inc.Dave Ratner is one of the most entertaining and informative speakers I have ever heard. His no-nonsense, no-notes, extemporaneous delivery made his message very believable and sincere. Dave’s marketing ideas hit home through his humor and honesty. His lecture commanded the largest audience with the most post questions and answers. You don’t fall asleep with this guy!

Earl H. Mayer, Vice President
Mayer Bros Apple Products, Inc.

Pet Industry Distributors AssociationYour topics are spot on. Part of what makes you such an effective presenter is that you live what you discuss. Plus the mustache—at least half the audience shows up just to see if it’s really a hamster.

Steven T. King, CAE, President
Pet Industry Distributors Association

Kohl's Department StoresDave has captured the essence of being a successful entrepreneur in a captivating and humorous style that is both fascinating and inspiring.

Julie Gardner, Executive VP and Chief Marketing Officer
Kohl’s Department Stores

E-S Sports ApparelThe fact that you practice what you preach by running a successful, customer-service-driven retail chain made your presentation that much more effective. So often, we hear from the textbook-type consultants that it was refreshing to hear from someone like yourself who has the trial-and-error knowledge of building a business from scratch, and running it successfully.

Eric Suher, President
E-S Sports Apparel

Pareto Marketing Inc.Just like David and Goliath, Dave uses customer relationships as his ‘slingshot’ to bring down the retail goliaths.

John R. Goodman, President
Pareto Marketing Inc., formerly Senior VP Marketing and Customer service Helzberg Diamonds, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway

Just 4 K-9s and Kitty 2…to take our store to the next level the first step is to fill the gaps (you pointed out) in the management style… Thank you again, for giving us a starting point to launch from.

Cheryl High, Retail Manager
Just 4 K-9s and Kitty 2

National Retail FederationThere’s no doubt in my mind that large retail companies can learn a lot from Dave Ratner’s ingenuity, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with customers. His innovative ideas and passion for retail makes him a perfect fit to serve as one of our industry’s greatest advocates: a distinguished member of NRF’s Board of Directors.

Matthew Shay
National Retail Federation President and CEO

Retail WireAt the recent eTail West conference, Dave Ratner gave a terrific presentation on how small retailers can win against big chains — real world examples from somebody who worked his way up from the bottom.

Al McClain
Retailwire

Dave’s humorous delivery of what works, what doesn’t and why in business is simply inspirational!

Ernex Marketing Technologies, Inc.I wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did as a keynote speaker at Ernex’s Customer Loyalty and Electronic Marketing seminar. Although there were a few injuries in the audience from people slapping their foreheads when they recognized a little bit of their business in the painfully amusing customer service examples you highlighted, everyone is OK now. On a serious note, your presentation really drove home the point that good, solid marketing and loyalty focus on not only rewarding customers, but servicing them the way we all would like to be serviced.

Peter Allemang, Vice President Sales
Ernex Marketing Technologies, Inc.

Prevue Pet ProductsYour ‘top ten list’ is a ‘must have’ for any company interested in delivering top-notch customer service, and becoming a valuable contributor to their customers’ success. I would highly recommend you to any people interested in taking their customer relationships to another level.

Blake Barry, National Sales Manager
Prevue Pet Products

Dave is one of few ‘one-man cult brands.’ His demeanor is disarming leaving one defenseless as soon as he says ‘hello.’
