Testimonials


I’ve known Chip Thomas for about ten years now and I recommend his services without hesitation.  I’m the sixth generation in my family to carry on the tradition of selling automobiles.  You’d think by now we’d have it all figured out.  Chip has been a real inspiration to us and constantly reminds us of the basics in customer service, customer retention and the philosophy of running “a business within a business.”  My sales consultants don’t fight us when it’s time to go to his seminar or watch his DVDs.  Instead, they look forward to it because Chip is one of them.  He comes with so much credibility because he still sells cars and practices the fundamentals that he teaches.  His life story alone is inspirational and worth the price of admission, but his teaching style and ability to motivate your sales staff is unprecedented.

Thank you, Chip, for helping me develop my staff into an effective team.  For your friendship, your support and for your prayers I will be grateful.”

“I would absolutely recommend this seminar to anyone in sales.  Even if they sold toilets.”
Of any training/motivational seminars I’ve been to, which I’ve seen a bunch, this one will be the most beneficial.  I thoroughly enjoyed this and I thank you for sharing with me today.”

Very knowledgeable, great enthusiasm and real world experience.  It is refreshing to attend a seminar by someone who actually lives what he teaches.  Great job, true professional.  Chip’s processes and plans for success in repeat and referral business bring respect and credibility to the automobile business.”

Chip is amazing, but humble, intense in a good way.  My 2nd time attending and it was just as interesting and enlightening.  It’s a brief lesson in how to live your life not just sell.  Just plain outstanding, entertaining and above all else, helpful.”

INSPIRING! This is what we, here at San Francisco Toyota, think of you. What you have done in one day with my sales force has been truly amazing. INSPIRING! That's you, Chip Thomas!

Without a doubt, I can honestly say that your "Sail to Success" Seminar has reached each member of our sales force, unlike the many sales seminars we have had our sales force attend. By sharing your activities and habits, you have inspired and have motivated my team to "bring back the basics" into each of their day-to-day activities. More importantly, you have inspired each team member to be "true" professionals through time management, effective communication and creating a customer base that will develop into "advocates for life."

Already, I am seeing results. Hand-written notes are now being sent out; thus, discontinuing our "generic" dealership "thank you" letter; desk files are being reorganized to save time; balloons are on new car deliveries; and, more importantly, during the last few days, we're seeing an improvement in our new car grosses. You have taught them to have "no fear" when asking for the sale and for the price.

Dealerships spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to train their sales team to become professionals in an effort to improve sales volume and profit, with little and poor results. Based on the results I am seeing, we consider "Sail to Success" an excellent return on our investment."

CHIP THOMAS SETS ATTENDANCE RECORDS!
The Chip Thomas "Sail To Success" seminars hosted by SCADA in Charleston, Greenville, and Columbia have blown away the attendance records for any SCADA events ever held. Over 300 Dealers, Managers and Salespeople were on hand to experience the finest sales and customer satisfaction seminar that this writer has ever witnessed. Judging by the evaluation forms of the attendees, especially the Salespeople, the general consensus is "I have been to a lot of seminars and heard a lot of speakers, but never have I learned as much or been inspired as much as I was today. Chip Thomas is not just a trainer, he's a car salesman first and then a trainer. He has walked in my shoes before. Thanks Chip, your presentation was just awesome!"
