  • Alan’s website review had a tremendous impact to help me grow my business through my website’s reach. His clear, focused approach to evaluating and offering suggestions and improvements for all of the pages on my site allowed me to see how others view my site and how much room there is for improvement!

    Alan’s marketing expertise translates brilliantly to the web and implementing the changes he suggested has made an immediate difference in the appearance and effectiveness of my website. The website review was an outstanding experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their sales, marketing impact and ranking with Google.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Linda. It’s always great working with fellow speakers, and seeing how the same ideas I use for the wedding/events industry can work for you.

  • Ryan says:

    Alan is amazing speaker and industry expert in his field!
    I’ve seen Alan speak twice now and I’ve read 2 of his books the most recent being “Why Don’t They Call Me”. It was a quick read but after putting some of Alan’s tips back in action I was quickly able to see a positive effect from it. I highly suggest to anyone that needs a reboot to their sales process to reach out to Alan or pick up one of his books. I guarantee reopen your eyes to contacting and creating a better relationship with your clients!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, thanks Ryan, I’m so glad you are seeing such quick results. That makes me very happy about the new book.

  • Paul Hoke says:

    If you really want results, buy one of Alan’s audiobooks. Put it on your calander to review them every other month. He not only gives you the Why he explains in detail the How.
    If you are busy and don’t have time to turn marketing theory into Action steps Invest in his books….then study and implement. Alan’s advice has made a significant difference in my business growth and profitability.

  • Euan Bass says:

    I have heard Alan speak on a few occasions, and at a recent seminar, Alan asked if any of us get an enquiry to let him know.

    I did, for someone who said they were on a budget did not want to have a telephone conversation (I prefer to talk), after some email interaction with the help from Alan, I spoke to them, had a meeting and they booked my full package

    Thanks Alan

  • Well, he’s done it again… we’ve had Alan in for 2 years now to talk to our vendors and help them with everything from customer service to closing the deal. Again, he amazed, delighted and, most of all, helped our group. He’s worth every penny and that’s not me saying that – that comes from my vendors who come to the conference. Oh, I’ll say it too! Thank you, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Stacy to you and Scott for bringing me back in for a second year. And thanks, also, for your generous hospitality.

  • David Pellot says:

    I am sure by now I am just repeating what everyone else has conveyed – Alan is a true master of his craft. I am totally blown away from Alan and his understanding of how couples think. He is truly a “wedding whisperer”!

    When it was time for me to re-evaluate my sales process, I purchased Alan’s book, “Shut Up and Sell More Weddings and Events.” Needless to say, it was a real game-changer. What really astonished me was how Alan was able to break down the sales process for people like me who are not fans of the sales process. The idea of considering objections as opportunities was really valuable to me as well, as I had always considered objections to be the final say. Now, it’s another way for me to explain my uniqueness and value and convert doubts into customers. Also, Alan’s straightforward approach to asking for the sale is both simplistic and eye-opening.

    I have recently applied Alan’s approach to email inquiries, and again he hits the mark. Not only am I saving time and effort, I am able to consistently close on inquiries, which allows me to put more focus into what I do best.

    I whole-heartedly recommend seeking Alan’s advice and applying his methods wherever possible – you will thank yourself later!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, David, it’s great to see that you tried some new ways, and it’s paying off for you, big time. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • I had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak in Vegas. This man knows exactly what he is talking about! He kept my attention the entire time and was just a wealth of knowledge!

    • Alan says:

      Hi Dianne, thanks for coming to my session at the Photobooth Expo. I’m so glad you got some ideas you can use, now!

  • Recently heard Alan speak at WWLA and instantly knew my business was going to change for the better. Within a few weeks, I had received and closed six clients when I was averaging one to two previously. Talking and closing clients have never been easier. I highly recommend all of his books which I have read multiple times. Alan is also a stand-up guy off stage as well. Thank you for all you do Alan!

  • I’ve been officiating weddings for 20 years now. In April of 2017, I attended a Wedding Wire networking event that Alan spoke at in Orlando. He spoke on how to construct reply emails I believe. I remember taking notes and immediately made changes to my email responses and I got rid of my Gmail address and got a @pastormikeweddings.com. He also spoke about having multiple packages to offer. I basically had two, my civil, non-religious ceremony and my personal and unique custom ceremony. He suggested I add a third offering that would be above my more expensive of the two. I thought about what I could do more, came up with some ideas and added a third package, my platinum package. I have been pleasantly surprised by how many of my couples are choosing my platinum package, thus adding 37.5% revenue to that wedding.

    On Tuesday I tuned into the webinar on responding digitally. Alan emphasized that once a bride contacts me I am already engaged in a conversation so just continue the conversation. That really hit me. Tonight I got a text through WW My Client app. I responded in kind and asked a question. She replied right away so I responded with a brief comment and a question. Within four back and forths, she text me and told me she wanted to book me. Within ten minutes she made her deposit and filled out my on-line contract. I actually had gone to get gas and go to the bank while all this took place.

    I can’t thank Alan enough for the help he has been to me, even though I’ve been at this for 20+ years. These millennials are nothing like the boomers and gen xers I was booking 20 years ago.

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Mike, thanks! I’m always glad to hear that taking action is having a real impact, and you are certainly a testament to that.

  • Lisa W says:

    Thanks again for another informative webinar. I reached out a few months ago, and you completely changed my reply style…short, conversational and always ending in a question…
    Well, I “fell off the wagon” as inquiries slowed down, and returned to my old ways. Fearing I wasn’t sharing enough, I reverted to long email form letters, multiple attachments, videos, and links, (Distractions) and worst of all, not ending with a question (Dead End)…

    Fresh from your webinar, I am back on track, and looking forward to absorbing more of your wonderful wisdom next month at WeddingWire World!
    Is there a sign up for your lecture? (see what I did there? 😉)
    Best Regards,
    Lisa

    • Alan says:

      That’s great, Lisa. We all tend to fall back to the old ways, and then we need to get snapped back to reality. I’m glad you tuned in.

  • OMG – awesome presentation, as always!!! I’ve seen him several times between Wedding MBA and Wedding Wire World – he never disappoints! I have FOUR pages of notes (front and back) and I can’t wait to get started! Thank you, Alan, and thank you to Amye and Scott of Richmond Weddings! P.S. I bought the book “Shut Up and Sell More” from WW World and am reading it now! Watch out world!!!!

  • I’m at Catersource in Las Vegas, and have attended both of Alan’s sessions so far. Super inspirational, I feel like he hit the nail on the head with everything he spoke out. Answered a lot of the questions I continually ask myself in regards to catering sales. I bought his most recent book and was the first in line for the signing. Fantastic speaker.

  • DJ Pat says:

    THE REAL DEAL! Just when I think I know everything, and believe me I am that guy, then I read or hear something Alan is saying and I am like “wait a minute” . Its like an “ah, ha” moment. Some things he says right off the bat are like that. Like I should have known this! And then I make that adjustment and my business continues to go. And even sometimes I look at what he says and I hesitate because I am not sure. But I ultimately put my faith in and lo and behold… BOOM! It works! I can’t thank Alan enough for his insight, wisdom and overall knowledge of what it takes to make ones business thrive. Alan, Berg is the REAL DEAL and I thank him!

  • Had the pleasure of listening to Alan speak at The Special Event show in New Orleans. He was by far the best speaker out of all my sessions, and the most informative. He has a way of engaging the audience without giving them the uncomfortable feeling of being called on by the teacher. There was smart dialogue throughout the presentation and that is what I truly enjoyed. He tells you at the beginning of the presentation that he is going to give you access to the slides so you’re not spending the whole time taking notes and then realize at the end you didn’t have to! I even saw him later that night in the hotel and he had the exact same friendly personality. I’m exciting to read his books and start subscribing to his bogs! 🙂 THANK YOU ALAN!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Gabbi, you validate so many things for me. Every time I’m honored to be in front of an audience, I want you to be informed, but also entertained. I look forward to your book review next!

  • After 3 days of sitting through classes to where it was difficult to pay attention I happened upon Alan’s class 5 tips
    He was so informative, enthusiastic and engaging.
    The time flew by and my only wish was that he could of spoke longer. I can’t wait to implement all the great advice and tips he shared with us at TSE.

  • Aaron Lane says:

    I enjoy Alan’s emails, and talks at WeddingMBA. His insight and ways of phrasing client-facing questions have had such a positive impact on my business!

  • Nicole Vecchio says:

    I was familiar with Alan before attending his seminar and had high hopes. I got to see him in Pittsburgh and he did not disappoint! I learned a lot from what he said and will be definitely using it day to day. If you get the change to hear him speak, jump on the opportunity. I look forward to working with him again in the future!

  • We just had Alan back today for our third session in 4 years in our area. This private mastermind group was again mind blowing. The info, format and time spent was worth the investment 10 times over, as it was in the past. If you’re considering Alan for a mastermind, or any of his presentations, we again highly suggest locking it on now. Spend more time working on and investing in your business, Alan will not only help you, but, will make it so easy! Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mark, you’re the catalyst for getting me up your way, yet again. Your dedication to the local wedding and event pros is honorable.

  • I recently had the pleasure of joining my fellow Central Coast Wedding Professionals colleagues for one of Alan’s workshops, and was completely blown away! It was an invaluable experience! I’ve already implemented several of the changes he suggested in my business and am already seeing results. Thank you, Alan!

  • What a breath of fresh air! Alan’s workshop was like no other. I walked away not being overwhelmed, or left wanting more. The information, knowledge, insight, action items and humor were the perfect mix. I am already instituting some of the changes I needed to make to my website. Plus, I feel more confident with his training in how I am responding to wedding inquiries. I am not just shooting in the dark hoping something sticks. I now have a plan.

  • Thank you Alan for such a great event at Avila for the CCWP pop-up workshop! You were so easy to listen too and everything you said was very informative. I didn’t want it to end! We were able to take a lot of tips back to the office to share. I look forward to attending another one of your seminars in the future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jess, for hosting me and for coming out for the CCWP workshop. I look forward to coming back to your beautiful venue in warmer weather.

  • Wow! That about sums it up!! If you are looking for motivation and great tips on booking and communicating with Brides you need to go to one of Alan Berg’s conferences. He passed on so many amazing tip’s and information that is so easy to apply to your business. He reviewed a few lucky attendee’s, and if you were not the one chosen; you were able to learn loads from his review of others material and websites! Thank you Alan for sharing your knowledge with other professionals!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kim, for your gracious words. It was great of you and your team to come out for the CCWP event. I look forward to seeing you there next year.

  • Mandi Nack says:

    Alan Berg was a great speaker for a pop up in Avila Beach, California. I have heard him speak at different conferences before but this topic really hit us when we needed it most. It was great to have him in a smaller atmosphere where he could be really hands on answering questions. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and also feel I got a lot of value out of the material that will add value to my business.

    Thank you Alan for coming out for CCWP and being so funny yet informative to listen to. -Mandi & Kayla, A Sparkling Event

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mandi and Kayla for driving down from Monterey for the event. I appreciate your dedication to your success… and to me.

  • Jaydyn Blair says:

    What I learned from Alan has changed the way I run my business. I’m so much more effective in my bookings and more confident dealing with clients. I appreciate all of Alan’s suggestions and tips. I highly recommend attending any of his workshops!!!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jadyn, it’s so great to hear that you’re more confident with your clients. Confidence comes through in everything we do, and it’s a great way to show your clients that you’re right for their weddings.

  • Worth every cent! Alan Berg was so easy to work with and fully engaged for us in the entire process. When we decided to bring him to Central California for our “Pop Up Wedding Workshop” it was no secret who he was. Many of our local wedding pro’s had seen him at MBA or one of the other big industry events and couldn’t believe we could spend the money to have a speaker of his calibre here. Alan worked with me to structure the day for a successful financial outcome that really made the day work for us. We did an early Masters Class and another completely different workshop for the afternoon with different price points. Almost every one of the participants chose the entire day and paid the higher price. The day was a huge success with 50+ businesses represented and allowed us to show our Central Coast Wedding Professionals group off to many non members who also participated. If you’re considering having him present to your group, DO IT! It’s that simple, I have 4 pages of notes to put into effect and We’re just getting started. Thank You Alan! You are worth every cent! -CCWP.com

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bob, for being the catalyst to make this event happen, and for your generous hospitality while I was in town. I look forward to coming back next year!

  • What a pop up workshop yesterday!!! Thank you Alan, you are very inspirational. I signed up not know what to expect, I went with a longing to learn more for my business and boy did I. Your information and knowledge was way more then i could have imaged. I am looking forward to my website review with you soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jennifer. I’m so glad you took a leap of faith and attended the workshop. I look forward to our website review next month.

  • During a break in Alan’s presentation, I was able to start applying his tips and had a positive response within 5 minutes. Sold a booth to a new vendor on the spot. It was easier than my usual approach and more effective. Thank you, Alan! I shut up and was able to sell more!

  • Finally got to an Alan Berg Pop Up Wedding Workshop and have to say that Alan exceeded all expectations! Not only is he engaging and smart, but he is also funny and entertaining. Alan’s knowledge of the wedding industry is stratospheric and he has a wonderful way about him to communicate it. His anecdotes are spot on and highlight the points in a memorable way that is easy to remember. I also love that he took the time to research the companies that were present and use our on line reviews, etc as examples. We are jazzed to start implementing his tips right away. I’ll post another review soon raving about how much business we gained because of him!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Janice, to you and David for hosting the Pop-Up Wedding Workshop. Your Reading Art Works is such a cool space, everyone had a great time.

  • I first heard Alan speak at a Wedding Wire Networking event on Monday this week. His talk was absolutely an eye opener! The tips and ideas he presented to generate more business were soooo very helpful! I have implemented most of them already and have seen a 90% increase in replies to my emails, Just this week! I can’t thank him enough for the impact he’s had on my business!

  • Alan was hired by the corporate office of Complete Weddings + Events to present to the franchisees in May of this year after several of the corporate team saw him at the 2016 Wedding MBA. We’ve had a lot of people come to speak at our meeting over the years and Alan is definetly one of the best we’ve seen. The information he presented was incredibly valuable and he delivers it in a fun and engaging way. I decided to attend the 2017 Wedding MBA in part because I knew Alan would be one of the presenters. I made sure to attend as many of his talks as possible. I also purchased two of his books while there, that he graciously signed for me and as a bonus he gave me a bag of brownie brittle too! I guess you can say I’m now a Alan Berg super fan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Shawn. It was so fun to be out there with the Complete Weddings team from around the country. There is such a good energy in the room, and clearly you guys are doing so many things right already. I love working with high-performing teams who want to get even better!

  • C. Rodriguez says:

    Great personality – Excellent speaker

    I attended this year’s Wedding MBA and all of Alan’s presentations were extraordinary. All of his classes provided so much useful information that without a doubt will help my business prosper!

    The website review and consultation session we had with Alan opened up our minds to new and fresh ideas. I strongly recommend it.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Claudia. It was great working with you, again, on your business and website. I’m looking forward to seeing the changes.

  • I first heard Alan Berg speak at WeddingWire World DC 2017. He has a dynamic stage presence that draws you in and keeps your attention. Within 30 seconds of him speaking you realize that you need to be on the edge of your seat not only listening and taking in every word that he is saying, but also vigorously taking notes so as to not miss any of his wisdom. I went to WeddingWire World DC as a relativity new business and after two days left thinking that RCC Weddings & Events could take on the world (of weddings and events at least). I am looking forward to hearing him speak again – hopefully soon!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Renee, thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I’m so happy to hear that you feel empowered to take your business higher, and higher. That’s my ROI for speaking at events like WeddingWire World.

  • Jan O. says:

    Fantastic! Seriously. Don’t know how he takes a topic like reviews and actually makes it engaging, but he does. He thoroughly understands his audience’s varied industry and yet still gives invaluable information and suggestions to all of us on how to improve our businesses, from very small businesses to large corporate giants. I was really excited to get the opportunity, along with other “friendors”, to spend most of the day with him, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I wish I would’ve brought my entire team! I took so many notes and we’re immediately implementing all of it!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, thanks, Jan, I’m humbled by your comments. It’s always my goal to make it interesting, and engaging, no matter the topic.

  • Alex Derenne says:

    Being able to see Alan speak early on in my sales career is a real treat! His presentation gave so many useful tips that he proves with real examples. His presentation certainly will have an effect on how I conduct myself professionally. Thank you Alan!

  • Khodr Elmasri says:

    Yesterday I have attended wedding summit 2017 hosted by Weddingsonline.com in Dubai, UAE.
    I must say that i have heard the best sales motivation speech in my life. Alan Berg is such a straight to the point speaker (no word less, no word more).
    Knowing about the business, what is needed to be done, what sales techniques we need as hoteliers and wedding planners.
    Alan is defiantly speaker to look at and learn from his global experience.
    For sure i will read the books and the articles released previously by him to have more knowledge and skills.

  • 17 years with National Geographic, I’ve seen my fair share of public speakers over the years. I’m finding the talk from Alan engaging, particularly poignant in terms of winning new clients and relevant to my goals of growing the business. Very much looking forward to the next session.

  • Luba says:

    It always feels great when you interact with professionals, doesn’t matter in which area of your life. It is particularly rewarding when you see the immediate benefits of such an interaction for you and/or your business.
    Alan Berg is one of those people: smart, inspiring, funny and expertly helpful, – at least for a novice entrepreneur as myself. I first listened to his WeddingWire webminar about conducting sales where he was talking about handling the pricing questions with prospective clients. I was impressed by his logics, liked it a lot and – as if it was done on purpose – did receive an inquiry the same day I’ve listened to his webminar. In my answers to this inquiry I’d followed Alan’s advises- and ended up closing a sale! I then came to his talks at the WeddingWire World and participated at his Mastermind Day. All these meetings were interesting and helpful. Looking forward to new interactions!

  • Pearl Thomas says:

    I recently heard Alan present during several workshops at the WeddingWire World 2017 conference at the Washington Hilton and I was so impressed with his presentation. He was informative, humorous, and had a great knowledge about the workshop topics. I look forward to hearing him present again in the future!

  • Lisa Ratliff says:

    I attended Weddingwire in DC the past 2 days where Alan Berg was a speaker. I learned so much and even applied his technique to a lead I received while at the conference. The bride was so excited that I responded so quickly and the price range I gave her was perfect! Thank you so much Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Lisa, that’s fantastic! Using a new technique, at the conference, and seeing such an immediate response, is a great ROI from WeddingWire World.

  • Cory Gosik says:

    Alan spoke to us at the ICA Board Retread about branding and redefining ourselves in an ever moving industry. The way he presented the information made it easy to understand and see what we needed to do to make ourselves better. His energy was through the roof, which we all loved! I’m looking forward to the next time I get to meet and watch Alan present. Thanks so much Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Cory. It was fun working with you and the ICA Board on your new direction. There was so much positive spirit in the room, I was honored to be a part of it.

  • IMPRESSED! Wow… Energy, enthusiasm, and obviously an expert! After attending two separate presentations by Alan Berg, I felt compelled to make immediate changes in our business which should pose instant reward. Alan’s overall knowledge of websites, Social Media, marketing, sales and the overall event business is phenomenal.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michael, it was a fun event. I really appreciated getting to meet you, and I look forward to hearing your success stories.

  • Ari Jones says:

    I’ve attended several webinars and a small group seminar that Alan conducted and both were fantastic! I always hear Alan’s voice in my head saying, “What are you going to do, prove that the customer is wrong?’ That helps me so many times when I try to deliver the best customer service possible. Alan’s webinar on pricing was so on point that in the 24 hours that passed between attending the webinar and putting his ideas into practice I closed my first full planning wedding package a higher rate! Thanks so much for the advice and inspiration Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Terrific, Ari, that’s fantastic. Kudos to you for taking a chance on a new way, and for it working out so well for you.

  • Rob Ferre says:

    Alan recently did a “secret shopper” seminar for the group I was involved with and it was amazing. When Alan told us that he had secretly shopped all the attendees in the room, a hush went over the audience. Everyone immediately leaned in and wanted to learn more. The seminar that followed opened our eyes to our businesses and what we can do to improve. I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation and believe me I have seen Alan speak more than a dozen times and this one took the cake. I always look forward to every opportunity to learn from Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob, it was great having you there… and you avoided the secret shopping as you weren’t yet on the list! Lucky you.

  • Jodi Harris says:

    No matter how many times I see Alan Berg present, I ALWAYS come home with a takeaway to help increase sales in my business. His presentations are always different, fresh and unique. Thank you Alan for always delivering solid content that rocks!

  • From ILEA to the Wedding MBA, I’ve been very fortunate to learn from Alan over the years. His presentations have helped me improve both my marketing materials, website. and blog. I just saw Alan last week at a business conference for entrepreneurs. His focus was customer service this time around. Alan has a very cool way of weaving his educational content into some very entertaining stories! Anyone who learns to speak Spanish so he can deliver keynotes for a tri-city Latin American tour is awesome in my book.

  • Jazmine says:

    Alan knocks it out of the park again. I had the pleasure of attending TWO sessions with him this week and always leave with “WOW” as my reaction. His knowledgeable, straight forward and interactive style of presenting makes his presentations top notch! Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jazmine. It’s always great to see you in the audience, as I know how progressive you are, so it’s an honor to hear your thoughts.

  • Alan always “hits a home run” when he speaks. But this time hit he “hit a triple”! His team secret shopped all of us to prepare the response times & critique our response methods. How shocked but enlightening it was to see how we are doing in the communication with prospective clients. The time & energy put into prepping for the presentation was amazing. Anyone looking for a great speaker should contact Alan. You’ll LOVE him!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Geoff. I love seeing the evolution of your business, and websites, over the years, as we’ve been working together.

  • From the Association of Bridal Consultants, to the Knot to Wedding Wire, Alan’s presentations have always left me with a renewed perspectives and a list of tasks to improve my business. Truly an expert!

  • Taren says:

    I had the pleasure of listening to Alan last evening (7-11-2017) at the Wedding Wire Networking event in Orlando. He is very engaging with his audience. However, what I truly liked about his was he brings LOCAL statistics not just national for you to truly grasp what is going on in the area you are marketing. He also took the time to speak one on one with several people afterwards and offered some constructive and very helpful advice. I am in the process of implementing his suggestions already. Thank you for taking the time to speak with me Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Hi Tarren, it was great meeting you in Orlando. I look forward to hearing how implementing those ideas is helping your business.

  • Justin says:

    Alan Berg is everything a business owner wants from a teacher: a person who is fun, personable, knowledgeable and relevant. There is so much information and experience Alan brings to the table I recommend reading his books and attending an event involving Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Justin, I’m humbled by your thoughtful comments. I look forward to seeing you when I’m in ABQ next year.

  • I was told about Alan from another industry friend. The friend told me “You have to hear Alan Berg if you don’t do anything else at Catersource.” He was not lying. Alan was engaging and gave an amazing presentation. As luck would have it, we had him speak at our May ILEA meeting. My sales team attended the event. They started using his tips the next morning. I highly suggest booking Alan. You want be disappointed!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Steve. It was great seeing you twice this year, at catersource and in Atlanta for ILEA. I look forward to coming back, and your books are on their way!

  • Spotlight Events Houston says:

    I’m listening to the sounds of my PayPal bling because of your response templates that convert leads into clients. You are AMAZING! I learned so much from your presentations during the WeddingWire World 2017 in LA. I can’t thank you enough!!!

  • We just hosted Alan for an all-day seminar for local wedding professionals and our attendees are still raving about him. We ran over our allotted time and everyone stayed to pick his brain, and he humbly obliged. Even my mom enjoyed him, and she’s a hard sell!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Barbie, to you and Tom for inviting me out for the workshop. Your Mom is so sweet, I’m glad you got the seal of approval from her, too.

  • Josh Franz says:

    Alan came to the Twin Cities in May for a full-day seminar for our members and we couldn’t be happier with the results. As I looked around the room throughout the day, I could see that the audience was always fully engaged. His speaking style is the perfect balance of education and entertainment. I have to say it was a very good investment for us! Not only did our members appreciate the seminar, many of them have increased their marketing budget with us and as an added bonus, the tickets we sold covered Alan’s fee. We’ve heard very positive feedback and our members want more! So, we are having him back in August for another seminar and a group Mastermind day. We look forward to another great experience with Alan Berg.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Josh, to you, Gary and the team at TCWA. I’m looking forward to coming back August 8-9 for the workshop and mastermind.

  • Robin - Arthur Murray Dance Center Swansea says:

    I attended my second Alan Berg seminar and I would go again, again, and again. He is fabulous and informative.

  • I attended Alan’s Secrets to Marketing Success event hosted by the Twin Cities Wedding Association last week and learned so much. I’m a travel agent who specializes in destination weddings and honeymoons, and since I’m not working in a more typical wedding related industry, I wasn’t sure how applicable any of the advice would be for my job, specifically. Alan proved me wrong, giving me a ton of ideas on how to sell these once-in-a-lifetime vacations better. The best part is that all his tips are easy to do, and something you can incorporate right away. I’d recommend one of his speaking events to anyone looking for great insight on how to better grow their business. Thanks, Alan!

  • Ryan says:

    Alan is a great speaker and teacher! His thoughts and points on effectively communicating with clients has helped us shape our own processes for the better. Very well done!

  • Cara Winter says:

    Alan is a dynamic, animated speaker, with a head full of knowledge to benefit your business. Within hours of attending his engagement here in the Twin Cities, I made a few changes to my website, my “Digital” conversation style, and began asking for reviews. In only a few short days, I have seen increased traffic to my site, and more people actively engaging in conversation not only about their wedding photography, but also their portraiture needs. Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Fantastic, Cara. I’m so glad to hear that you’re already seeing results. Kudos for taking action from the ideas you heard.

  • Ann Margaret says:

    First time hearing Alan Berg speak and we were not disappointed. He gave such great practical examples I can see that my catering managers have already put some in place in their daily activities.

  • Alan was great! I throughly enjoyed his presentations. He had a lot of good and practical advice that will be very helpful, plus he’s got an entertaining delivery that made him very easy to listen to. I would highly recommend him to any wedding professional who is serious about moving their business forward.

  • Sese Cadmus says:

    I Loved listen to Alan…He gave simplified insights into marketing.

  • Meghan K. says:

    Alan was very easy to listen to. He’s entertaining and knowledgeable about marketing for companies big and small. I never once felt bored or like I wanted to cut out early. Thanks for a great seminar.

  • I had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak last week. It was incredible! I have already put to use the things I learned and had great results. He was funny and very easy to listen to. I highly recommend going to hear him if you get the chance! Thank you Alan!

  • Sarah Erb says:

    We were so blessed to have alan come and speak to our team of owners. The knowledge and passion he brings to this industry is like none other. Thank you for re-igniting so much passion throughout our company! I can’t wait to hear you speak again!

  • Dane says:

    Alan is fantastic. His direct approach to selling and working with clients can help any business owner in any industry. Also, as a speaker and a host, he was very humble, and low mainenance, no crazy demands and came overprepared. Thank you Alan for Being Awesome!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dane, for inviting me to come and spend the day with your team. I look forward to continuing our relationship.

  • Curtiss says:

    I have seen Alan multiple times and have enjoyed every time immensely. Alan’s persona and delivery will keep you entertained and focused to what he’s speaking of . What Alan is presenting, you can consider him an expert and it will light a fire under you and send you in the right direction for you and your business. Well worth it!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Curtiss. It was great of you, and the Rhode Island Wedding Group to invite me back for another wonderful workshop. I can’t wait to see the photos you took, and of course, to plan an encore visit!

  • Alan Berg turned my sales team into a selling machine! Because of Alan my website conversion rate is up 44%, my sales team’s closing rate is doubled and we are back on track to have an amazing year. Alan Berg has the best ROI of any business investment I’ve ever made. Alan Berg is is rocket fuel for your bottom line!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Robb, this is fantastic. It was so great working with you, and your team, on-site. I’m looking forward to hearing more great stories!

  • Renee Borges says:

    I have been in the Sales industry for 25+ years and have been to many conferences and training sessions. Alan Berg seminars/trainings are the only events that I request my Employter to send me to! I have had the pleasure of seeing Alan at larger seminars and also small scale events and have always left with useful information to help me grow on a professional level. If you want to be engaged and learn Alan is by far the best! Thank you Alan for all the tips and information. Hope to see you again soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Renee. It was great seeing you and your team, again at the RIWG event. I love how you come out any time I’m in the area, and I really appreciate it.

  • i attended wedding wire world in anaheim, may 1 and 2, 2017 where alan gave four separate talks. i was initially somewhat reserved about the conference due to some perceptions i had about the wedding “business” in general. i’d just launched my business only a month ago (making vintage looking wedding films). but the engaging and relatable way in which alan spoke to us immediately shifted my energy and got me excited, in many ways. his sharp wit, his “getting it” and really knowing how to make sure his audience gets it as well, really won me over and frankly made me enjoy the rest of the conference so much more. it made me more attentive. i feel like i’m more ready to step up to the plate as business owner and part of that i owe to his presentations. also, i chatted him up during a break, and the few comments he immediately gave me about the way my business card was designed were entirely worth the price of admission of that entire two day conference. new business cards are on the way, website design next. alan, thanks; i appreciate you.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michael. I could tell, when we first met, you were a little skeptical. Thanks for being open-minded. I look forward to seeing you at the next event.

  • DJ Will Gill says:

    Im a Los Angeles wedding DJ who attended my first conference may 1st-2nd in Anaheim. Alan spoke for the Wedding WIre Conference and while there were tons of speakers and great info to take in all around, no one was as charming and fun as Alan. He even allowed the crowd the ask a few Q’s. Not only was he ready for every question the crowd brought, he had a little bit of humor to his conversations. He definitely kept me awake and refreshed as it was a long 2 days. I won a free copy of his book for presenting a few popular wedding dances on stage, and for that I’m grateful! Im looking to start blogging this summer on my DJ website WGE-Events.com and I definitely going to do a piece on Alan because more people should know about this shining star!

    Thank you so much for the very very valuable information this May.

  • Arianna says:

    I just heard Alan speak at a Wedding Wire conference this week and he was so engaging and funny it kept everyone locked in and entertained while being fed some vital information on how to bring in the sale!

    He reassured me on somethings I’ve been doing right, but also gave my that kick in the pants to change up the things I needed to improve on: like having a conversation with leads instead of just dumping our PDFs on them and being pushy about a phone call or meeting!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Arianna. It was great meeting you at WeddingWire World. It’s great to get reinforcement on what you’re doing right, while keeping your mind open to new ideas. Thanks!

  • Estelle Mathis says:

    You are definitely a wedding guru. In a matter of 2 minutes you were able to change my approach to converting leads to clients at Bridal Expos, in 4 easy steps.

    Thanks Alan, for changing the way the game is played.

  • Alan Berg was by far my favorite speaker at the WeddingWire World conference. The amount of insight he provided led me to filling pages and pages with useful notes. Thank you, Alan for providing generations of business’ with strategies and tools to help with achievable growth.

  • Kira Conkle says:

    I had Alan’s “Shut up and sell more weddings” book given to me as a gift. It was one of the best gifts that I have ever received! I took some of the key points that Alan made and switched them out, one a week, with things I was doing on a daily basis. I noticed a huge change in the responses I was getting for clients as well as an increase in responses. And just as the book says…SHUT UP! I realized that I don’t need to tell my potential clients all about all of what we offer. I don’t need to continue to over-sell. If I just listen to what the client is expressing, I will be able to give them the best service possible instead of selling them on something that they don’t need.

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Kira, that’s fantastic. I love how you didn’t try to do too much at once, and are seeing such great results.

  • Bonnie says:

    Alan,
    Big Thanks! It was great meeting you last week in DC. I have to share my success story with you!! After listening to you speak at Wedding Wire World in 2016, I changed how I responded to my emails. ? send rules!! I started seeing immediate results after changing my email style. After your speaking engagement in DC, I am paying more attention to buying signals and ditching my pitch. I managed to book a wedding of $18,000 in less than 4 emails. We never spoke on the phone or met in person. I am doing the happy dance over this sale!
    We have a set of your books on the way for everyone on our team and we are starting our own little book club. Hopefully, we can also arrange to have you come down to Richmond for a Mastermind event this year.

    • Alan says:

      Fantastic, Bonnie. Once you trusted that you can do it, without having a call or visit, you’ve proved that you can!

  • Matthew says:

    Truth be told, I’m new to the event industry, and didn’t know who “Alan Berg’ was. After some research, and listening to you speak, I’m happy to know who Alan Berg is. You are an amazing speaker and I’d bet you are an amazing person, as well.

    I was able to use the lessons he taught me THE VERY NEXT DAY!

    Thank you for being you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Matthew, it was great meeting you at the ILEA NJ North event. I’m so glad you are seeing such immediate results.

  • I invited Alan to do 1/2 a day with my entertainment company for a mastermind session and had the second half as a “pop up wedding workshop” where I sold tickets for fellow wedding pros in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area to learn and improve their businesses. The entire day was truly beneficial and we can’t wait to implement Alan’s suggestions. Thanks again Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Iman. It was great working with your team, and meeting some wonderful wedding and event pros in DC at the cool venue.

  • Kim says:

    Catersource 2017 New Orleans! Alan’s 10 Creative Ways to Use Your Reviews to Make More Money was the best of all the sessions I attended. I incorporated 2 of them in my business before the conference ended! Hope to see you as a keynote for BNI Michigan in the future. Thank you for feeding my brain!

    • Alan says:

      Hi Kim, it’s fantastic that you were able to use those ideas right there at the conference! I look forward to coming up there for BNI.

  • Miriam says:

    Tuve la oportunidad de asistir a las conferencias de Alan Berg en el evento CASAR 2017 de hoteles Mayakoba en la Riviera Maya, y cambió totalmente mi visión sobre las ventas que hago, dándome clara cuenta de los errores que cometo, porque si, yo contestaba más de lo que me estaban preguntando, y si, mandaba paquetes a montones. Estoy realizando los cambios, es reciente, así que aún a veces caigo en mis errores del pasado, pero poco a poco los estoy puliendo, y ya estaré comentando de los resultados a partir de la conferencia con Alan Berg. Gracias por todo, ya estoy leyendo tu libro: Cállate!!! Y vende más. Muy enriquecedor.

  • Leigh Cantu says:

    Thanks Alan for such a wonderful and enlightening Wedding Pop-Up Workshop this past week. You provided me so much insight and tips to help my new venue business get headed in the right direction. The purchase of a venue business has been a lot of hard work but with your solutions and fixes I know I can use them immediately to grow our business and achieve my goals and dreams. I’m sure I will be talking to you soon for help on our website. I cannot thank you enough for all the information you provided. Thank you!!!!!

    • Alan says:

      Leigh, it was so great hearing your story and how you are building your new business. I look forward to hearing your success story going forward, and working with you on your site.

  • Mark Wilson says:

    Alan, as Mel B. from “America’s Got Talent” would say…you are “SPOT ON”. So much practical insight, helpful tips, real-world applications…your seminar is by far the best in the industry and I have attended a lot of them over the years. Thank you for giving us solutions and fixes that we can take back and use immediately to grow our business and achieve greatness with our collateral, websites and in our client communications. Simply put…”WooHoo” Alan Berg!! Thank you!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mark, it was great to have you at the Pop-Up Wedding Workshop, and thanks for your enthusiastic review of our day.

  • Michelle Chavez says:

    I heard Alan speak at The Special Event Conference in 2017 and he was nothing short of fantastic. He gave incredibly inspirational advice and easy to implement ideas on how to improve your sales techniques with simple and non-salesy phrases that can help put your client in the right mindset to make a buy. I’ve always had a hard time feeling confident in a sales role, but in the last month since learning from Alan, I’ve implemented strategies that have made me more confident in my role! I’d highly recommend Alan as a speaker, consultant, or sales trainer. He’s also really funny and easy to listen and talk to!

    • Alan says:

      Fantastic, Michelle, thanks for sharing this with me. I love helping people like you sell more. That means you get to do more of what you love!

  • Jaime Zurat says:

    I am always thrilled to have the opportunity to hear Alan speak. His level of enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge is unparalleled. I appreciate his interactive nature and ability to connect with attendees, as well as provide tips that are easy to implement. I consider Alan to be one of the top three speakers I have had the pleasure of listening to in my 15+ years of attending seminars, meetings, etc.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jaime, it was great to see you again. It’s refreshing to see you take such a proactive approach to your marketing. Thanks for coming out.

  • Denise Zera says:

    Hi Alan,

    Yesterday was great in Lancaster PA at the Cork Factory!  I responded to an email yesterday and wrote like I talk keeping it short watching for buying signs. Guess what your right it works!  The bride agreed to hire me. What was two of her reasons?  Response time and I talked with her like a person and didn’t use a sales pitch. Your the best!

    Thanks
    Denise Zera

  • A very inspirational and educational day gearing to our wedding market!1
    Left with a lot of promising ideas …can”t wait to read his books!

  • Anne Murillo says:

    Alan, thanks for a “mind blowing” seminar yesterday in beautiful Lancaster, PA! Such simple, logical steps to communicating with customers. I had a lead during lunch, tried your technique and heard back from the customer within an hour, working on closing the deal now!! Thanks again ! Anne Murillo, Chef Exclusive Catering

  • So much inspiration Alan!!
    thank you 😊

  • Kristi DePew says:

    Alan’s simple, easy-to-implement strategy of using “Question Mark-Send” has made an immediate impact on my productivity. Our clients are responding faster, and we are able to complete our tasks faster as a direct result. Mind: Blown.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kristi, it’s so great to see that you’re using, and benefiting from this simple tip, and seeing the results, right away.

  • Ron Davis says:

    Alan Berg is a can’t miss presenter. I’ve seen him many times and always come away with something new I can use TODAY.

  • Tonya says:

    IT WORKED!!!!!!!!! I bought your book and cd’s at Wedding MBA, read them and listened to them every night for weeks now and guess what? They work! I booked a stranger on FB. She posted looking for a DJ, my son tagged me and said my mom is a planner she will hook you up, she is the best, so I friended the girl. A past client tagged our DJ company while I was asking her questions one at a time, wait for an answer, next question, answer, and so on. 20 minutes later she hired us for full price! Still have never met her, and only know her through FB!! Glad I listened to you Alan! Best year yet 2017! Hope to see you in Pittsburgh soon!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Tonya, that’s fantastic. I’m so glad you were able to put these ideas into use, and see the results so quickly. Looking forward to seeing you at a conference, soon.

  • Dave Grimm says:

    If you are marketing your goods or services to the millennial generation, then you will undoubtedly benefit from insights that Alan Berg provides! He is a master of the techniques you will need to thrive in the digital age. As both a business owner and the former president of the American Disc Jockey Association in the Washington , DC region, my interactions with Alan have always been beneficial. Every time time I speak with Alan Berg, I make money.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, David You and ADJA DC have always been great supporters of me, it’s wonderful knowing that you’ve benefited so much.

  • Graham Jones says:

    I was told by a friend who had heard Alan speak that he was “world class”. I often hear that about speakers and rarely is it true. In Alan’s case, it definitely is a well-deserved label. I heard Alan speak in the UK recently and he really is brilliant. Not only is he clearly an accomplished speaker, but he is informative, entertaining and knowledgeable. I was hooked the moment he started speaking and I was paying full attention throughout his speech. He is well-prepared, engages the audience constantly and packs his talks with up-to-date information and practically useful tips. In my line of work, I get to hear a lot of speakers. Rarely do I hear one as good as Alan Berg. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him as a speaker. Plus, chatting with him afterwards I discovered something else about him – Alan is a jolly nice chap too…!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Graham, that’s incredibly high praise from you, the CEO of the Professional Speakers Association (UK). I enjoyed meeting you, as well.

  • Matt Fairlie says:

    I was lucky enough to listen to Alan at a conference and at a smaller mastermind over two days. Truly inspirational and motivating. So much information but delivered in a way so I didn’t switch off! Lots of lightbulb moments! He listened and he “got” my business, can’t wait to make some changes. Highly recommended will certainly be booking a website review with Alan soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Matt, it was great having you at both events, and getting to know more about you on our drive to the airport (thanks for the ride).

  • Tom Jay says:

    Wow, your Pop-Up Workshop yesterday was fantastic! You cover so much in a short amount of time and we now have many points to work on in our business.
    Also, your books are easy to read and very insightful, thank you for coming to central Oregon!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Tom, for you and Marlise coming to the Pop-Up Wedding Workshop. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Erica says:

    I attended a pop-up wedding workshop in Bend, OR the other day and it was the most valuable thing I’ve done for my business this year! I have already implemented his recommendations for responding to emails since the workshop on Tuesday (it’s only Thursday) and I’ve already booked one client and have a meeting scheduled for the second. His knowledge and passion for helping others is absolutely evident in the way he presents and you can’t help but love him. I’m relatively new to the wedding industry and I had never heard of Alan before our local wedding association secured the workshop, but so glad I am now familiar. I can’t wait to see more of Alan Berg in the future!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, thanks Erica. I’m glad you came, and I’m glad you are seeing such immediate success from the ideas we discussed. I look forward to hearing more stories of your success.

  • Taylor Damon says:

    I left the wedding Pop-Up Workshop enthused, motivated, grateful and wishing we had unlimited time. You have a lovely way of capturing a room, mixing both professional and personal stories to keep everyone engaged. Thank you for your continual example of hard work, and passion!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Taylor, for you and Barb coming to the Pop-Up Wedding Workshop (and VIP session). I look forward to hearing about how you’re using the ideas from our day together.

  • Even though I’ve heard Alan Berg speak several times before, I still left his workshop with a list of ways to change the way I do business & increase our profits. He was so engaging that I didn’t even want to leave for a trip to the restroom… might have to wear Depends to his next workshop!!!

    • Alan says:

      Hi Stephanie, it was great to have you and Brian there at the Pop-Up Wedding Workshop. We’ll add a few more breaks next time, so you won’t miss anything. I look forward to our website review.

  • Thank you for a very insightful NACE meeting. I’m glad I attended and more than any other speaker I’ve seen you hit home on several topics. I’ve got some changes to make and hopefully they pay off.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dave. The NACE event was great with a beautiful venue and a fantastic turnout. I look forward to being invited back, again.

  • Evan Liaskos says:

    Alan’s mastermind session had all the benefits of a one-on-one session, with the added benefit of the input of other wedding professionals all coming together to make for a very customized problem solving session in an intimate setting. This format forced us all to consider both newer, out of the box as well as older, time tested solutions to all of our individual challenges in a smaller environment where we all learned from each other. Much more personalized and focused than just a seminar, and much less expansive than a personal session.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Evan. Having you and George come all the way down to Philly was a real treat for me. As you know, your dad and I started working together a long time ago, and it’s been great seeing you take the reins and grow your family business even more.

  • #DynamicWeddingDuo went to #weddingmba for the first time this year in Las Vegas and we heard Alen speak on conflict resolution. It was one of the best talks at the convention, it was interactive and we were allowed to tell about what was going on right now in our business and Alan took time to listen to each one and offer action items to put in place right now.

  • Rob Schenk says:

    Wedding MBA 2016 was the first time that I had been able to catch Alan live, and he is by far the best speaker that I have ever heard. Whatever you have to do to earn the title “certified speaking professional,” he did it. Trust me. I could have thrown a battery at his head in the middle of his seminar, and he would have been able to catch it, swing around, and throw it back at me without missing a beat. He’s that prepared. [LEGAL DISCLAIMER: PLEASE DO NOT THROW BATTERIES AT ALAN BERG]. This particular presentation was only 15 minutes, but I took pages of notes and had lots of action items.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Rob, that’s high praise, for sure. I’ll be sure to look out for flying batteries next time I see you in the audience 😉

  • Arlene Nappa says:

    Alan Berg’s seminar was so informative, thought provoking and motivational. Looking forward to hearing him again tomorrow at WeddingMBA.

  • I’ve had the pleasure of not only listening to Alan speak professionally but also meeting him and speaking with him personally. He has a way with words that not only makes perfect sense but is also common sense! He’s easy to listen to, and his advice is valuable for today’s wedding professionals!

  • I had the pleasure to meet , listen and learn from Alan Berg in the WB 3.0 Congress in Uruguay . One of the most inspiring and possitive speakers!!! Alan enthusiastically transferred all his knowledge, and has a great ability to keep your attention the entire time. A wonderful person!! Hope to see you soon again, and keep on learning.
    Thanks for all the tips in your presentation, I promise to use them day to day .

  • Luis alberto Payeras says:

    Un excelente aprendizaje, gracias por compartir tu saber! Desde ya pondré

    Tú español está excelente !

  • I’ve been in the hospitality industry for 45 years, and I’ve been to a lot of seminars. I can’t remember a seminar that kept me as engaged, and where I took more notes.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Robb. It was great seeing you there at the VIP session and the rest of the day. You have a beautiful venue.

  • Laura Cadrin says:

    I have had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak at a few of the Wedding MBA’s as well as on webinars hosted by Wedding Wire. Lately I attended a networking evening hosted by Wedding Wire where I was privileged to listen to Alan once again. Each time I hear his messages I gain more insight as a wedding vendor. His knowledge is incomparable to many other speakers. He offers information that is specific and useful to me as a business and it is offered in an easy, professional and enjoyable presentation. I have checked his own website where I am assured that he practices what he preaches. Alan is a very sincere and approachable person. I will be looking forward to the next time I have the opportunity of attending another of his presentations.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Laura, it’s always great to see you in the audience, and it was even better that we had time to chat at the networking event. I look forward to seeing you again, soon.

  • I have been in the Wedding business for a little over 14 yrs first in New Zealand and then in Canada,and it took 15 minutes of his presentation at tonight Wedding wire Networking Event to realize how much I DONT KNOW! and say to my self.. it makes sense! Great communicator and so personable thank you for sharing your knowledge with us all

  • Day two with Alan Berg today in Raleigh, NC and SIXTEEN pages of notes! I couldn’t write fast enough. Alan takes the time to get to know the attendees and listen to their needs and he shares wisdom applicable to that need. His passion for strong marriages and family shines through in his personal stories about his wife and close-knit family. Alan sets such a great example of a successful business man, Husband and Dad! It’s clear that Alan lives what he teaches and applies it to all areas of his life.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brooke, for coming to both the Mastermind Day and TBA Summit + Social. I love your message and mission and I look forward to hearing when your venue gets going.

  • I have heard Alan Berg speak 3 times now. Each time I have learned and implemented techniques to my business. He is such an enthusiastic speaker and gives his audience examples to explain his statements. I always leave feeling pumped up and empowered after his talks. I also love the fact that he will talk one on one. His passion to help people thrive in business really shows. I will definitely go to his talks in the future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jennifer, it’s always great to see you in the audience. It shows your commitment to your success.

  • Scott says:

    Hi, Alan,

    I saw you speak at ArmsDJ 9.0, and found many of the things you shared were valuable and timely for me. I’m actually working to build a side career as a freelance editor, and your three pricing packages are something that I anticipate using. I also like your sales philosophy — I found it refreshingly honest.

    Thanks, and Best Wishes,
    Scott

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Scott. I’m glad you walked away from the Arm DJ conference with something you can use, right away, even outside the wedding and event industry.

  • Justin Reid says:

    I recently had the amazing opportunity to hear Alan speak and I must say the information contained in his message is invaluable. He was so engaging and it truly talented and a master of what he does. I’m looking forward to listening to his Sales Series 1&2 that I got from his as well. I just started listening to it and there are some real nuggets of great information there too! Can’t wait to see you speak again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Justin, it was great seeing you at the Arm DJs conference. I look forward to hearing your feedback on the Sales Series CD collection, and how many more nuggets you are getting.

  • Ron Michaels says:

    I’ve seen Alan speak several times at various wedding and DJ conferences around the country over the years. He is without question, one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard. Always engaging. Always informative. And most surprisingly, always fresh content. I’ve never heard the same seminar twice even though I’ve heard him speak at least 6 or 7 times. Most in the wedding industry consider him to be the foremost authority on marketing and social media.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ron, I appreciate you coming back, again and again, to hear me speak. That’s one of the reasons why I’m always creating and updating my content. Thanks for noticing.

  • Steve Moody says:

    I have had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak several times over the past few years. No matter whether it has been a DJ industry event, a wedding industry event, or any other, Alan has had the unique ability to make me feel as if he is speaking directly to me.

    Though he has never owned an entertainment company, it is quite obvious that he has taken the time to educate himself on my industry. In fact, there is no doubt in my mind that he does his “homework” before each event, as he always brings up current topics and has even featured pics, testimonials and website info on event attendees within his prepared PowerPoint presentation. Therefore, his ideas always seem as if they are presented by an industry insider, which makes him more relatable to all of us.

    Lastly, his concepts are presented in a fun and upbeat (conversational) manner which always make his seminars a highlight of our conferences and conventions. People can’t wait to hear Alan speak and always talk about him for weeks after.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Steve, it’s always great to see you in my audience, and it was so nice to meet your family. You’re such a consummate professional, and I appreciate you understanding the work that goes into what I do, to bring you the latest ideas.

  • Mary Klein says:

    I truly enjoyed hearing Alan speak two times first at a group session, then following a private session within my office. He was phenomenal and has taught me the best tricks to perfect my emails and so much more!

    Thank you again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mary. Breezin’ Entertainment is a very progressive company, and I look forward to seeing you reach even greater heights.

  • Craig Carl says:

    My wife and I have attended many seminars in the past decade, since joining a PPA-affiliate (PPA of PA) as professional photographers. Alan Berg’s session was the best! Furthermore, he continues to personally advise us in our work-in-progress effort to convert our antique website into an up-to-date, effective marketing tool. We are so grateful!

  • Melanie Hill says:

    Alan spoke to a group of wedding industry professionals in Dallas, TX on 4/19/16 sponsored by the Association of Wedding Professionals. WOW! I’ve heard Alan speak before, but he knocked it out of the park this time! He is so engaging and shares valuable information in a fun and entertaining way. Never a dull moment or a time when everyone wasn’t on the edge of their seats. Thanks Alan for elevating all of our businesses! Melanie Hill, Exceptional Events

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Melanie, for validating for me that which I try to achieve: I don’t ever want to be the best I can be… just the best I’ve ever been, and do that every time.

  • John Redford says:

    Alan, I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at BSPi in Greenville this past week. Even more, I gained some key information to use in training my staff at my lube shop. I also enjoyed our conversation trading stories before the banquet Saturday night.

    You have a message that is so pertinent to anyone who is in sales of any kind (aren’t we all). One of the things that I took away was the positive “spin” a sales person should develop to help a potential client make an informed decision.

    Thank you again. Your presentation and the information will drive my training program for my staff. I would recommend you to anyone as a great resource.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John. I often say that I speak about business, not weddings, but mostly to wedding and event professionals. Most things I share are applicable to other businesses, like your lube shop. I’m glad you came to BSPI to hear it.

  • Alan is real, he speaks the truth and very empowering. There was never a dull moment in all the hours of listening to him.
    That is hard to achieve these days in our attention deficit world. A true gift to the business world.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Penny, for your wonderful comments. You’re so right that our attention spans have gotten shorter, and shorter. I try to keep it entertaining, as well as educational, so thanks for the validation.

  • Alan is a down to earth, genuine guy. His strategies are relevant to today’s marketplace. He made me realize what I was doing five years ago is obsolete in the are of web and social media. Real answers- real approach- for real business… that’s what I got out of the day with Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Phillip, it was great you could make it to the event. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Alan- I’m not very happy with you! No one told me I wouldn’t be able to sleep after your workshop because I’m pretty sure my head has EXPLODED! Wow! 12 pages of notes (just now beginning to feel feeling again) after your visit here in Dallas! The best for me? I had a sales call with a bride scheduled right after the workshop. I closed them to an appointment at a per person price that was $15 more per person than our “usual” price point…this equates to an additional $1500. Run, crawl, Uber, hitchhike, beg…do whatever you need to do to get your butt in a chair and go to this! You’ll be glad you did! Alan- dinner is on me next time you are in Dallas so please give me a heads’ up! Now, how else may I create value for you today? (question mark, send!)

    • Alan says:

      Mark, thanks for your ‘complaint’. I’m so happy you were able to use the ideas so quickly. I look forward to our dinner next time I’m in DFW.

  • Lance Panton says:

    I attended Alan’s “Sell More Weddings” Seminar in Dallas. My laptop battery went from 100% to almost 0% TWICE, because Alan was churning out so much valuable information. For whatever you think you know, you don’t know it all. This landscape changes almost daily. The good thing is, Alan stays 3 steps ahead of those changes. Never miss an opportunity to learn from him. The education is truly priceless.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lance, for letting me give you the power, both literally and figuratively, to help your business succeed.

  • Alan Berg was a breath of fresh air to listen to about the importance of reviews in the jewelry industry at the SMART show in Chicago. As a millenial helping to run a business, technology comes easily to me but at times is a disconnect with the owner. Alan gave me many ideas how to approach my superiors to demonstrate the importance of reviews, the bad as well as the good. Thank you for giving me that little boost I needed to open this conversation!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jessica, it was great talking with you. You have an edge, being a millennial in a business trying to sell to millennials. I hope your boss is smart and open to learning from you.

  • Lisa Manis says:

    Thank you Alan for an awesome seminar! It was very inspiring and refreshing to hear your perspective on sales, answering emails, our brand and closings. I bought your book and can’t wait to start reading. (and I didn’t look at my watch once)!

  • Lauren Coffman says:

    I just finished a seminar with Alan at The Smart Show in Chicago, IL. Be was both informative and entertaining! I learned a lot and have many take backs to implement when I get back to work! Thanks so much!

  • Andre LaCour says:

    For me, the bottom line is if attending Alan Berg’s presentation was worth my time invested? The answer is yes! I came back to my office with vital and actionable ideas. I have no doubt that I will recoup my investment many times over. Highly recommended. Alan’s seminar came at the prefect time as I am building a new website.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Andre, vital and actionable ideas are exactly what I am always hoping my audiences to take away, so thanks for the validation. Now, I want to hear about how you’re benefitting from them.

  • I have attended several conferences with Alan and I am always in awe of how the content is always fresh and continues to push me to up my game. Thank you for a great day of education and I am looking forward to the next time you are back in Chicago!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jazmine, it’s always great to see you in my audience. Your success is a tribute to your thirst for learning… and applying. I look forward to hearing more about your new venue.

  • Gayle Jan says:

    In attending any kind of seminar or presentation, I hope to take home a couple of ‘gems’. We have not started the pm session & I have 14 pages of To Do’s. Thank you -Gayle Jan

  • Peter says:

    I’m looking at my watch… hoping this workshop will never end. Don’t want to leave, but can’t wait to use everything’s I’ve learned!

  • Caleb Williams says:

    Alan came to the Professional Photographers Association of Pennsylvania for a whole day seminar. I’ve been hearing about “brand” for years, and never really got it. But I learned more about brand in that one day, and he wasn’t even teaching “branding!”

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Caleb, I’m so glad you had your moment of accidental learning. Branding is so much more than just a logo.

  • Rodney Clark says:

    After seeing Alan at many WeddingWire World conferences, I knew that I wanted him to be our… “All Day Speaker” for the Professional Photographers’ Association of Pennsylvania’s annual convention. Having Alan Berg speak to our members and guest was more than informative… It was “Eye Opening” as many of us never saw how “Our” websites needed to be updated to today’s standards. I personally can’t wait to make changes to my own website so that I now can get more clients to it.

    Thank you Alan from all of us!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rodney, to you and everyone at PPA of PA for inviting me to spend the day with you. It was lots of fun and I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Lexi says:

    On behalf of Karen, Jill and Lexi at Harmony Hall we love Alan Berg! We recently heard him speak in Carlisle for the PPA of PA and have loads of notes to review and start using to help prevent dead ends and help us to use social media to our advantage. As we are preparing a new website ourselves, we found that all his knowledge on how a website should be set up and how it will increase the amount of leads was extremely helpful and something we will be working on in the coming weeks. Thank you Alan for all your insight and I’m sure we will be hearing much more from you in the near future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lexi, to you and the Harmony Hall team for coming out and showing your dedication to education and success.

  • Tara Paige says:

    Seeing Alan Berg speak was the jumpstart I needed. Invited by a colleague last minute I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, the night did not disappoint. The confidence that exuded from him filled the room and truly had me hanging on his every word. I have since gone back through my plans and pamphlets with new eyes. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge, the whole room left better for it!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tara, it was great of you to take the leap and attend. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Theo Wheeler says:

    What a pleasure it was to have Alan in Rochester, N.Y. To speak with some of the areas top wedding professionals. Our attendees included some of the most experienced professionals in the industry, but Alan’s presentation brought new and fresh ideas to the table, even for them. After surveying our attendees, they all spoke of how much inspiration and solid techniques they now have to bring back to their business for potential growth. I look forward to seeing what’s new in Alan’s next presentation of inspiration.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Theo, you and your team created a great day of education for the local wedding pros. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of their success. It shows your commitment to helping your customers, and the local community.

  • Eric Edwards says:

    I went to hear Mr. Berg speak, with my type of business I never thought I would get anything from him. I learned more about how I should operate my business in an hour than the years before. His talk was entertaining and full of ideas that will help any business. I learned even more after hearing the second day. It would a mistake to pass on the opportunity to learn from Alan Berg. How much money do you not want to make?

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Eric, the ideas I share on how to sell more are universal, even for your beautiful custom wood pens and gifts. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  • It really amazed me how much I DID NOT know about “selling my wedding services”. Not only did I learn a lot today, we are having Alan upgrade our website.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brenda, I look forward to our website review session, and hearing about how you’re selling more!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. Having some background in Martial Arts, it was great how you combined it with business/ life success. Do to lack of finances and fear of getting in debt, being that I’m a single parent, I’ve been struggling with thoughts of going back to school to get a degree of some sort since it seems that no matter how much experience you have, a worthwhile company requires a degree…even if it has nothing to do with the job you’re applying for. The day after your presentation I started looking into schools and came across resources that may be of great benefit to me, as well as my daughter who will be a senior next year. Needless to say, not only did you give me insight to share with my boss, you said the right thing to push me towards my own success. I would love for my boss to have you review our website and do some consulting, it would be of great benefit to him/us .
    Thank you for your valuable time!
    Maria Sanchez-Acevedo

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Maria, it’s wonderful to see you motivated, and taking action. I look forward to hearing more about which direction you take. And, please let me know how I can help you and your boss with your website and business.

  • I was introduced to Alan a year ago at Catersource, and have seen him speak 7 times since. When it comes to sales training, there is just no other speaker that hits it out of the park like Alan. His approach is so easily received, because he looks at your website, your sales approach and pitch as if he were the client. Get ready for the “aha moments” because they are coming when Alan is at the podium!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicole. It’s always great to see you in the audience, or as the caterer. The food you supplied for the training day at House of Maya was terrific (as it was at last year’s training there, too)>

  • Rebecca says:

    Alan Berg is fantastic! I’ve heard him speak at WeddingWire World, TSE and I just heard him again yesterday in Virginia Beach at a conference. He’s such an amazing speaker, motivator and extremely informative on sales + simply how to make your business the best it can be! I can’t wait to read his book — Thanks again, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rebecca, I can’t wait to hear your stories of success as you implement the tips you’ve taken away.

  • Rebecca says:

    I had such an amazing time listening to Alan Berg speak in Virginia Beach yesterday! Super informative, entertaining and his knowledge on sales is amazing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to better their business — Can’t wait to start reading his book! Thank you again, Alan!

  • Meredith says:

    I heard Alan speak yesterday and have already implemented what I have learned. I now have brides wanting to sign the contract rather than waiting months to hear back from them. If you have a chance to hear him speak, do!

  • Amy Jurist says:

    I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to Alan Berg. I took one of his classes at a conference I was attending and he is such an engaging down-to-earth speaker. His suggestions, input and direction were so clear and helpful and he gave us real actionable ideas that we could easily implement into our business!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Amy, it was great meeting you at Catersource. I look forward to hearing how you’re using the ideas, and to hear your stories of success.

  • Bob says:

    Entertaining, Informative and Right on Point. Busy wedding professionals benefit from his presentation by refreshing their approach to selling. I highly recommend Alan Berg to any business person. Take the next step in your professional growth, attend a Alan Berg event.

  • My wife and I recently attended one of Alan’s seminars and we were both more than impressed. We walked away knowing what we were doing wrong, and what we were doing right (it was assuring to hear that we were doing some of these things right). But the things we were not doing right were causing a big impact on us. Day one back in the office and were are already implementing some suggestions…and we are in the process of booking a job today I’m SURE because we used some of Alan’s techniques….first day back after the seminar!! What I enjoy most about Alan is that he really does care about our success.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brian, it was great having you at the event. I’m so glad you were able to immediately put into use what you heard. Kudos.

  • Kenny S. says:

    I was honored to work with Alan to coordinate a great day of education in Eastern Pennsylvania, and was absolutely blown away by the knowledge and the quality of content that Alan presented in his seminars. While I have several of Alan’s mp3’s, this was my first time seeing him present live, and I learned so much in just one afternoon. I purchased Alan’s books at the event, and will no doubt be signing up for his new service, WeddingIndustryInsiders.com. If the opportunity should ever become available for you to see Alan in person, make sure you jump at that opportunity! It’s a learning experience that you will never forget!

    On top of all of that, Alan is just a great guy! One of the nicest guys I have ever had the chance to meet!

    Thank you Alan! You’re absolutely AWESOME!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kenny, for inviting me to come and speak out your way. I look forward to seeing you on Wedding Industry Insiders.

  • Christy Nickell says:

    I had the privilege of being sent to one of Alan’s pop-up wedding workshops for the first time last week. Prior to becoming an Event & Wedding Planner, I was in the corporate world for almost 20 years and have been sent to many Speaking Events, Workshops, etc… of all the speakers I’ve heard, Alan’s personality, workshop content, ability to make the audience feel comfortable in Q&A and participation not just after but throughout the workshop and his intelligence in this field simply blew me away. I learned a lot in this single workshop and am already noting in my planner, to look for his future speaking events throughout the year so I can attend. I have purchased a couple of his books that I’m dying to read and I now know where to go when I need more learning material for my career. THANK YOU ALAN! YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION!!

  • Bryan Hooker says:

    I have heard Alan speak at conferences a few times now, and each and every time I learn something new. Just putting one of his recommendations onto my website has given me a 20% increase in my leads. It’s like Alan said “You might say you cannot afford something for your business, however if you are losing clients because of it, you are actually spending more money not doing it.” Looking forward to you coming to Virginia next month!

    • Alan says:

      Fantastic, Bryan. The kudos go to you for taking action on what you’d heard. I look forward to seeing you in Norfolk next month and hearing more success stories.

  • I recently attended a conference and heard Alan speak a couple different times. I enjoyed his way of teaching and speaking and learned several tips. One of his suggestions has gotten me 4 new leads in just 3 days! Thanks Alan!!

  • Kara says:

    Alan- we always look forward to seeing you at Wedding Wire World! You give helpful information in an easy to understand delivery. Communication is key and there is always room to improve and you help us all see that!! We’ve succeeded so much because of you and your awesome knowledge!

  • Alan spoke at the Wedding Wire World 2016 and was by far my favorite and most informative speaker at the conference. He gave me and my colleague expert advice regarding a magazine which we are currently designing. He gave us clear and concise direction that we consider invaluable. We thank him for taking the time to speak with us and helping us succeed in not only doing what we love but having the opportunity to offer our clients a valuable resource in planning their wedding day!

    Thank you!

  • Jon Brose says:

    Incredible wealth of knowledge from this pro. I wish he could have spoken the entire day. Very motivating and very informative. He keeps you engaged to the point where you just want to hear more from him. I feel very honored to have talked with him face to face. Thank you Alan and I hope we can see more of you soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jon. Let’s work on that day of education for Main Street Weddings… and then you will get to hear me speak all day!

  • Adam Leffel says:

    A session of any title with Alan Berg at the front of the room best be called “Home Run Derby” – this guy knocks the ball out of the park everytime he gets the mic! Practical, useful and effective advice and points for every business and every level experience – you cant lose with his guidance!

  • Emer Lunasin says:

    What I’ve seen online and heard in person from Alan Berg has definitely enriched my life with my wedding business. Alan understands how his message can boost any self-esteem issues, and how we can adjust our business and personal habits in our day-to-day grind. I never get tired of hearing him in person year after year on reminding me on how to continue to improve myself. If you don’t know Alan, please consider hearing him out or getting his materials available to you online or at his next event presence. if you already know him, then you know that consistently connecting with him is a given and it never gets tired or old. Your personal development and professional reputation will definitely improve with any and all that Alan has to share! You will not regret it!

  • I’m not a stalker. Honest. But not a day goes by that I don’t listen to one of Alan’s CDs or read one of his articles or listen to one of his webinars on WeddingWire. His ideas range from simple to strategic. He shares them with humor and backs them up with experience. Thanks to Alan, I can now close a sale without shaking.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Zita, it was great to see you again, and thanks for sharing your story of success, crossing over to be better at sales, and feeling more comfortable with the process. Kudos to you.

  • Marième Faye says:

    Alan’s Training at the NSA Mountain West Chapter meeting was authentically Relevant, Fresh, Entertaining and Valuable. I am excited to implement all the juicy secrets he shared with us!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Marième. It was great meeting you. I’m excited to hear your stories of success when you start using those ‘juicy secrets’!

  • Curtis G. Marsh says:

    I have attended many presentations, and heard many of the best speakers in the 30 years I’ve been in business…Alan is definitely one I would highly recommend. His presentation is so full of energy and information that will benefit and engage all types of audiences.
    Looking forward to working with you often Alan!!

  • Mike Coyle says:

    I just attended a Private Mastermind meeting with Alan. As someone starting my own business, I am grateful for the time Alan spent going over my business with me. we went over key elements I need to work on to improve the brand I’m trying to market. The Mastermind groups are awesome because it allowed for an awesome personal touch. By the end of the day, We had all connected as if we were old friends. Alan I could tell he had a genuine care in all of our personal success, and for that I was truly thankful.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mike. It’s great to see how proactive you’re being with your new business. You have to invest in your success, if you want others to invest in you. Cleary you got that message.

  • Adam Conway says:

    This review is long overdue! Alan Berg is an amazing speaker and authority in the wedding industry. His website consultation really helped to improve our websites and he showed us the best way to use our customer comments and reviews.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Adam, I love working with progressive businesses, like yours, because I know you’ll act on the ideas, and see the results!

  • The more that I hear other speakers at wedding conferences the more I realize what a gifted, engaging and inspirational speaker you are.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Jonny, it’s always great traveling the world with you and weddingsonline. It shows your commitment to education and the success of your customers.

  • Thank you Alan for a great Monday seminar, that left me FULL of items and suggestions on simple, easy and effective ways to grow my Business!!! I drove home thinking “what is one thing i can do in 5 minutes?” …. as soon as i got home, i went onto my wedding wire contract template and increased my hourly servicing rates!! Will it result in a $50 increase for all wedding, probably not, but in at least half of them for sure!!

    Looking forward to learning from you in the Fall at Wedding MBA 2016

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Larissa, that’s fantastic. Keep working that average sale up and you’ll be seeing more profit from the same number of weddings & events. I look forward to seeing you at Wedding MBA and hearing your success stories!

  • Leslie Sargent says:

    Alan knocked it out of the park at the 2015 Wedding Pro Convention. I left his seminar “The Price is Right” with useful ready to use knowledge on how to raise our prices, get our brides to buy into those prices and understand how the bride ‘buys’. The information you take from his presentations can change your business! I can’t wait to hear Alan speak again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Leslie, I’m so happy you gleaned useful information. It’s one of my favorite topics these days because it’s so applicable to everyone in our industry.

  • Monique says:

    I had the honor to assist Alan Berg with his booth at the Wedding MBA last week in Las Vegas. I was simply AMAZED at the number of business owners who stopped by to share what a wonderful impact Alan’s teachings had made in the success of their businesses. Countless people wanted to have their photos taken with him, hug him and share their successes. Truly mind blowing! All I can say is if you want to take your wedding business to the next level, experience growth and achieve your goals, work with Alan….you won’t regret it.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Monique, for coming out and helping in the booth. We go way back to our days at The Knot and it was great working with you again. Thanks also for your kind words and warm friendship.

  • Eva Sealey says:

    My assistant, Holly, and I attended the Wedding Pro annual conference in Las Vegas last week and were extremely pleased with Alan’s presentations and speaking style. We always look forward to hearing him speak and take away a bushel full of information to put into practice. Looking forward to having Alan come to our venue in the near future. His energy in infectious.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Eva, I’m looking forward to coming out to your beautiful venue and working directly with you and your team. I’ll bring my energy with me!

  • I always look forward to Alan Berg speaking at a wedding industry conference. He’s straight up. No sugar coating. Very motivating. I like that.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Darlene, that’s my mission, to give it to you straight and motivate you so you take action on what you’ve heard. I appreciate you validating that for me.

  • We are privileged to have heard Alan speak 3 different times over the past 3 years. Then, he reviewed some of our marketing materials on-camera. We have applied what he teaches and increased our market exposure. Alan really is gifted. We can tell you straight up that after applying the tips Alan gave, our business direction changed and we have made more money. We LOVE Alan Berg!

    If you’re having issues with your website, marketing or related aspects just take the time to get Alan involved. He is the secret ingredient that makes the difference.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, David, it’s always great seeing you at the Las Vegas DJ Show. Your filming of the sessions keeps the learning going long after the show is over.

  • Whenever I attend a conference, I’m always delighted to hear that Alan Berg will be one of the speakers, and if there are concurrent sessions, I will always go to his presentation because I know it will be packed with useful information.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Paula, that’s my goal, to give you information you can use, right away. I look forward to seeing you in my audience again soon.

  • Sarah Kohl says:

    Alan’s website review was comprehensive and actionable. I knew i had a ‘problem website’, I just didn’t know what was wrong or what could be done to increase engagement with my brand. Alan shared his strategy on making websites easy for the visitor to use. Afterwards, he showed me specific, easy to do ways to improve my website. I thought I needed a new website but what I needed was a new approach to my existing website. Alan showed me how to make my current site useful for my clients so that they can do business with me.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sarah, I love hearing your comments. It’s the easy fixes that can have the biggest impact. I look forward to hearing how it’s working for you after the changes.

  • Alan, I have to tell you, after you spoke at The Springs in Aubrey,TX…the NEXT day I got hired to DJ 2 weddings from brides who bought the Most Expensive package (after Using the 1,2,3 method…2 being the Brides most popular package…) and they even added more stuff on top of that package!! Thank you for the Inspiration!! Oh by the way…..I had doubled my price during your speech!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jeff, for the feedback. I love that you not only raised your rates, but sold your highest package, not once, but twice that same week! Kudos to you for taking action and having your clients show you that your value is at the higher price point.

  • Thank you! It was a pleasure to meet you, and your seminar was amazing! I went home, and started implementing changes. I am so excited to see the benefits – I know what I learned will help me greatly in my business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sue, it was great having you at the event in Aubrey. I appreciate you coming out and I look forward to hearing how you’re using the ideas.

  • Beau Kramer says:

    Alan, really great webinar today. One of my favorite ones. Really great sales insight. Glad I had both my sales people in attendance.

  • I met Alan about 3 years ago when I attended a seminar for wedding professionals. I had the opportunity to speak to him during our break after a very mesmerizing 1 hour presentation. He provided some very thoughtful and helpful alternative points of view, which after much much thought, I decided to implement. Alan provides thought provoking content, he’s an exceptionally gifted orator, and effective narrator.

    I’m not one to patiently sit through 2 or 3 hours of content, but I can say Alan Berg, kept me glued to my seat and I’ve learned to trust his opinions. Thank You Alan, its been 3 years and you never cease to impress.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bob. It was great to have you and Michelle at the event. You show that you’re a true pro as you’re always looking for ways to improve your business for you and your clients.

  • You are the BEST! What a superb meeting on Monday, June 15. Thank you so much for allowing the Association of Bridal Consultants – New England branch to be one of the sponsors. Our wedding planners simply raved about all they learned!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Beverly Ann, it was so nice of you to help spread the word, to come out yourself, and then to help me with check in. I can see why you’re so good at what you do.

  • I had a wonderful experience attending and hosting Alan’s seminar recently. He was extremely engaging and informative. My team immediately put his tips to work during the break of the seminar and found it instantly effective! Highly recommended!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Francesca for your comments, and for hosting our event. Your venue provided a beautiful, and tasty backdrop for the many wedding pros who came out. I’m looking forward to coming back up to work with you and your team, in-house.

  • Sherri Rego says:

    I first met Alan at the catersource conference in Vegas and was awed by his speaking ability. When I saw that he was coming to my area I immediately signed up for the seminar. Once again it was exceptional! Very interesting, kept my attention throughout the entire day, which I’ll admit is quite difficult. What I was most intrigued by was that most everything he mentioned/went over was mostly common sense. If you haven’t been to one of Alan’s seminars it’s a must!! I for sure will attend more!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sherri. It was great to have you at the event. I can’t wait to come up and work with you and your team, in-house, later this year.

  • After hearing Alan at several seminars we have attended, we decided we needed to bring him to Southern California to educate local Wedding Professionals to help improve their business. His enthusiasm, humor, and personability with each seminar and toward each attendee captivated the audience throughout all 3 seminars through the day and he even went above and beyond to give extra time and an extra lesson to the attendees. He even stayed an extra hour later than planned just to make sure everyones questions were answered. We truly appreciated his time and knowledge and loved having Alan here. He truly speaks from the heart! Thank You Alan!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sophia & Ann, for inviting me out to present for your exhibitors. It shows your commitment to their success… and to yours. I do always try to speak from the heart. People can tell when you’re genuine, thanks for noticing.

  • Sherri S says:

    Your attitude to Success seminar is amazing. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it has inspired me and it challenged me. I am not sure you can ask for anything more from a motivational speaker.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sherri, it was great meeting you in Chicago at the DWHSA conference. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Michelle says:

    I recently had the pleasure of seeing Alan Berg and hearing him speak at the DWHSA conference in Chicago, and Wow !
    He is a dynamic speaker that captures his audiences attention and delivers the information in a keep it simple way . His insight into how to handle the angry bride is invaluable .

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michelle, it was great seeing you again, first in Austin, and now in Chicago. That truly shows your commitment to learning. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

  • Alan Berg is in my opinion a huge asset and resource for today’s business. Alan has advised me through a “one on one” website evaluation which has proven to be invaluable! On a number of occasions I’ve heard Alan speak on a variety of topics that I have taken many golden nuggets from to which have helped increase my business significantly. Alan is not only one of today’s best public speakers but he’s a great guy at the core. Every chance I get to hear Alan speak about important topics that can impact my business I immediately register! Thank you Alan for your passion and dedication to helping me and others improve our online presence and overall customer experience.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, George, for logging so many miles to come and see me. I love your entrepreneurial spirit and I look forward to seeing you in the audience again, soon (June 15th actually!).

  • Thank you so much, Alan. It has been a few years since I attended one of your learning seminars. Bravo sir, you haven’t lost your edge. Your matter of fact approach to business is what we all need to be the best we can be. There are so many things that you touched on that I already do thankfully, but there were just as many new tips that I picked up to sharpen my skills and selling techniques. We should all continue learning regardless of our years in business. I am now more aware of what current couples expect regarding keeping them interested after they initially contact us and how to communicate with them. I learned so many things today and immediately began implementing my new skills. I went back to e-mails this week to see if I truly listened to them or did I just overload them with details they didn’t ask for. You were right, too much info that wasn’t asked for and that will be adjusted from now on. I also had what I thought was a problem with a current client. After hearing you today, I thought “What am I known for? Exceptional customer service. Okay, in this situation am I hearing what my client is really saying or am I assuming what she needs?” I called her, took the time to really listen to what she was trying to share and now we are completely in sync again. She even told me “This phone call is why we love you, Barbara. You have everything covered for the wedding”. Nothing bad happened, but rather the opposite. Thank you very much for basically dusting off skills that were already there and giving me a new approach to assist more couples in the future. It was an amazing day. I can’t wait to read the books I bought today. Keep up the good work.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Barbara, I’m truly humbled by your kind words and I’m so glad you’re seeing an immediate impact from the sessions. I look forward to hearing more success stories from you.

  • Shelby Gehrels says:

    Alan Berg didn’t just provide amazing information for my work life, but really impacted the way I analyze wording, emails, interactions, people and so much more! He motivated me to be better and to KEEP CALM! In the industry we are all in, that can be very difficult. There is something about his presence that makes you instantly trust him. It doesn’t matter what he would have been selling, I totally would have bought it without hesitation! (lol)

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Shelby, it was great having you and your crew there in the front row at the NEAWP event. I look forward to seeing your review of my book. Let me know how you like it.

  • Diana says:

    Thanks Alan!! I was at the seminar Monday night and last year too, and I love listening to your wealth of knowledge and inspiration! I got so much great information, and have been using many of your ideas and techniques, and am getting great results! If anyone is looking for a dynamic speaker to inspire them and help build their confidence, Alan is the man!! Thank you so much, and I hope to see you again next year! ~ Diana

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Diana, I appreciate you coming back again this year and I love hearing your stories of success. See you next year!

  • I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Alan Berg speak on a few occasions. Recently he swung through Western MA and part of my team and myself attended this event. To say the least, Alan has a great passion for what he does and the knowledge to back it up. His presentation was both informative and inspiring. I highly encourage anyone looking to step up their game to attend one of his seminars, or at least review his material. You won’t be sorry.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mark, it’s always great to see you at the conferences. I look forward to working with you and your team more closely.

  • Alan, you give GREAT pointers, reminders on perspective, and strategic tips! We found your sessions at both the CSES Convention and Wedding Wire World to be very helpful and easy to implement. Anyone out there thinking of attending his sessions should go ahead and seal the deal…buy that ticket! It’s worth it!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kay, it was great that you came out to both of those events. It shows your dedication to doing the best for you and your customers. Kudos!

  • Andy Lydick says:

    Wow! Alan Berg has absolutely blown us away. Alan handed me his business card at a conference I went to recently and one of the quotes says “He has a way of making complex things seem simple.” This is the truth! Alan changed the way I think about my pricing and packages and how I communicate that to my potential clients. We applied what he taught us right away. Not even a week after we heard him speak, the things we learned from already paid off. We were able to convert two potentials into clients! We sold the package we had been having problems selling to both of those clients. In less than a week! Alan Berg truly does make the complex things seem simple. He has forever changed the way we think about our business. Thank you!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Andy and Abigail, it was great meeting you and even better hearing how you’ve implemented some new ideas and are already seeing the results. Thanks for sharing your success story, keep them coming!

  • I’ve have attended Alan’s training sessions 2 years in a row. You learn so much from him each and every time. He speaks at a level you can truly relate to. He gives you all you need to better yourself and your business. All you need to do is act on it. Thank you Alan for sharing your vast wedding business expertise with us. A must attend.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mike, you’re absolutely right. Without action there is no change… kudos to you for taking action (and thanks for coming out again this year).

  • Joy Burke says:

    Alan, you are a delight and I feel privileged to know you. It is obvious that you have found your truth because it flows so easily from your mouth. Once again, I heard your confirmation of some marketing strategies I currently implement, and ways to tweak what isn’t working as well as it could. Your material is presented in such a clear, smart, fun and engaging manner, that it made me rush right home and begin to incorporate your advice. Thank you, thank you.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Joy, I always enjoy having you in the front row. You inspire me with your spirit and I love hearing your stories of success.

  • I have virtually attended many of Alan Berg’s webinars on Wedding Wire, and am registered to hear him speak in person on March 25th in Western Massachusetts. As a wedding planner, I feel inspired by his knowledge and have implemented many pieces of his advice into my website and into my email communications. Putting contact forms on every page of my site not only allows the potential client to contact me easily, but allows me to know, by the title I give my forms, which page they were on when they contacted me. And I cannot tell you how ending your emails with a question has been AMAZINGLY helpful. I’m grateful for his advice.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tanya, it’s great seeing you on the webinars, and I look forward to seeing you in person next week at the conference.

  • Alan is called The Wedding Guru for a reason. He knows everything about Weddings, running a Wedding Business and everything related to Weddings. I met Alan about 12 years ago at a Catersourse Conference. Ever since then I follow Alan around. Each time I learn new ideas. Alan stays on top of the wedding business so he can inform and educate. Whether I’m in a room of 2500 or in a group of 30…Alan is speaking just to me. The last two days I saw him at Wedding Wire World 2015. Last month he came to Houston for the Bay Area Wedding Professionals Day of Education. I’ve also had Alan come and spend a day consulting at our venue. You will be amazed at what you learn from Alan! Go see him speak, get his books, listen to his CD’s. the man can TEACH.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Janice, it’s always great to see you in the audience when I speak. I feel like a rock star and you’re my groupie! Thanks for supporting me and valuing education the way you do.

  • Freddy Turim says:

    Had the pleasure of sitting in on 2 of Alan’s classes @CATERSOURCE in Vegas… he shared so many groundbreaking ideas for selling and being successful at what you do… he changed the way I looked at dealing with my clients now and I look forward to sitting down with my next customer (tomorrow). He is a real breath of fresh air!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Freddy, I’m so happy to hear that you got immediately usable ideas, that’s what I hope for whenever I speak. Let me know how that next appointment goes, and best of luck!

  • Just attended the Catersource Conference in Las Vegas and cannot say enough about Alan Berg’s presentations. I came home with so many actionable ideas to improve our sales process and website. Alan’s presentation “Are You Too Busy to be Successful” also gave me the tools to get organized and implement them. So looking forward to more at Wedding Wire World next week.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kate, now it’s time to take action on those ideas. Please report back on your progress, and success. See you in DC next week.

  • I had a great time learning from Alan in Austin. He was really an inspiring and fascinating speaker that kept me interested the whole time. I’m in the process of redoing my website and I found Alan at the perfect time. Thank you for coming to Austin and I’ll see you in DC for Weddingwire world!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Coleman, it was great meeting you in Austin. I’m glad to see you being so proactive with your business. I look forward to seeing you in DC at WeddingWire World.

  • I had a wonderful time at Alan’s seminar in Austin, Tx! Im new to the wedding industry and I left with such great information, positive energy,and confidence!! Happy to share what I learned with the rest of my team. I totally recommend attending Alan’s seminars if you can make it happen. I wanted to learn more & more…didn’t look down at my watch once, and I was kind of bummed when it ended to be honest!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jasmin, I was a little bummed, too. We were learning lots and having fun at the same time. I hope to see you at the next event in Austin.

  • I enjoyed your “Jump start your success” talk today, it was very informative. Having been in this business for twenty years you tend to get used to doing things a certain way, change is good, thank you.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Matt. It’s easy sometimes to think “been there, done that” and I’m honored that you came out to the event. That shows your dedication to keep moving forward.

  • I have been listening to Alan Berg speak both at webinars and in-person at conferences for many years. I always have some great take-aways. I have made website changes (so I don’t have to fire it), implemented changes in the way I approach client calls, and made changes to my business cards. Most recently, however, I have intentionally begun ending every client email with a question. The results have been phenomenal!! Alan knows his stuff and is the real deal.
    Can’t wait to see him speak in person the next time.
    Rev. Judith Guasch

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Judith, it’s great to hear feedback like this, but the real kudos go to you for taking action. Hearing ideas doesn’t change anything. Acting on them does. Thanks for sharing.

  • I first saw Alan Berg at the Wedding MBA in a much larger venue and thoroughly enjoyed him. So, after signing up for a local, much smaller talk at a local hotel…my expectations were really high. Alan did not disappoint! I left with a notebook full of insight and action items. He is so easy to listen to and the day ended and I wish he could have talked about 18 more topics. Will definitely find a way to hear him again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Caitlin. I appreciate your coming out to the event and I look forward to hearing how you’re using all of the ideas in your notebook.

  • I attended the wedding seminar through Bay Area Wedding Professionals yesterday, February 23rd, with Alan! Let me first say that I was so impressed at the amount of new knowledge I walked away with! I never once got bored, as you do through most things of this nature. Coming into the class, I was not sure what to expect, and honestly was only running on a couple hours of sleep this particular day, but NEVER once did I lose interest. He is very upbeat and always kept things very light and practical! So glad I decided to take this ‘class’. You rock, Alan! I’ll be at future seminars, for sure!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Emily. I’m honored that you chose to attend, despite running on too little sleep. I look forward to seeing you the next time I’m in town.

  • Jan Jordan says:

    Another GREAT Well presented Presentation. Alan NEVER disappoints. Our seminar for Houston Area Wedding Professionals was a great day of education with highly Relevant topics for our local Wedding Industry. He’s so easy to listen to in his delivery with all the facts, bullet points, descriptions, surveys, & updates. You leave the day feeling excited and motivated with clear action items to make your wedding business successful. WELL worth the time and effort to attend. HIGHLY recommended. Jan Jordan, Jordan Limousines. Weddings ARE our Business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jan, I really appreciate your comments and that you always make time to come out to see me speak, both in Texas and at other conferences. Your dedication to learning shows in your success.

  • Jason Martin says:

    Great speaker, even better teacher and best sale advice I have heard in long time..
    Jason Martin J Martin Production

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jason for coming out to the NJVA meeting last night. I look forward to hearing your stories of sales success. Please share.

  • OKC DJ says:

    I just found Alan on a lucky google search! I can already tell following him will help me grow and train my Wedding DJs here in Oklahoma City.

  • In my opinion, there is no better speaker on the subject of weddings. Alan combines the deepest knowledge of wedding businesses with the ability to share that knowledge with his audience in a motivational, compelling and amusing way.
    I have listened to him speak at wedding conferences in Las Vegas, Dublin and the UK and every time the audience were totally engaged. Feedback from the recent UK Wedding Conference had an incredible 82% of delegates rating him as “excellent”.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alison, for allowing me the privilege of speaking for the first-ever UK Wedding Conference. It was a beautiful venue, a great group of delegates and you and your team did a fantastic job. I look forward to future conferences.

  • I met Alan at the 2015 #weddingsummit at the K Club in Ireland. His style is to simplify and de-mistify the challenges faced by business that deal directly with the public, in the wedding sphere. Alan provides fast, workable, solutions for you to implement in your business the same day. He also gives me the confidence to continue in business, and the self belief that anything is possible. Thank you Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gerry. It was great meeting you and doing our website review the other day. I’m looking forward to seeing those changes on your site and hearing how they’re helping your conversion. See you next time I’m in Ireland.

  • My time and money invested hiring Alan Berg is still paying dividends today. Somewhere on this comment string you will find a previous comment from me. I just wanted to stop back by and let readers know that the changes I made to my website years back are still paying big today. Sure we have revised the site once or twice since then, but we made sure to keep the fundamentals taught to us by Alan.
    So thanks again for being a super sharp thinker and a quality resource for marketing folks. – Derrick Perrin with Big Box Pro Wedding Video.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Derrick, it’s very kind of you to share your successes. The real success is that you took the initiative to make the changes, and that’s what’s paying off. Too many people talk about what they want to do, but never take any action. Kudos to you for doing so… and allowing me to be a part of it.

  • Robyn B says:

    I have heard Alan speak on multiple occasions at conferences and on webinars. One thing that he has constantly said is that you never give up a lead until the potential client says it is dead. I followed this advice recently and closed a client that started talking to me in July (contract signed in November) it wasn’t that she was not interested it was her life was crazy busy and wedding planning was not her focus at the moment. I just checked in with her on a weekly basis and reminded her that she had inquired about my services and now she is a client. Alan’s advice was spot on!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Robyn, that’s a great story, I’m glad you didn’t give up on it. Kudos. Keep sharing your success stories and let me know how else I can help.

  • Alan, thank you for spending the day in Augusta, Maine training wedding vendors! I found your information to be incredibly helpful, not to mention insightful. I am in the midst of starting my own business and cannot wait to read your book “If Your Website Was An Employee Would You Fire It?”.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Taryn. You have the entrepreneurial spirit and I’m glad to be fanning those flames for you. I look forward to seeing how I can help your new business grow. Good luck!

  • Gwen Helbush says:

    Alan thank you so much to spending the day with at BAWN’s Day of Education 2014. The positive feedback has not stopped rolling in. In fact they all want to know when you are coming back.

    I would highly recommend Alan Berg, CSP to anyone needing a dynamic well rounded professional speaker.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gwen, I was honored to be the inaugural speaker at the reboot of BAWN. I’d love to have an encore performance. Let’s set a date!

  • I have heard Alan speak on a couple of occasions, and I must say each and every time I do it is very educational to say the least. I recently had the opportunity to hear him speak at the Maine Wedding Assc. meeting. Very interesting and entertaining. I look forward in hearing him speak many more times in my life before I am done. Thank you Alan very much, You are a great mentor and I am sure this will turn into a friendship as well. Good job.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brian, it’s always great seeing you in the audience. I appreciate your dedication to learning. Looking forward to the next time I see you.

  • Monica Newby says:

    Alan, thank you so much for presenting to our Seattle NACE group, not once but twice in 2014! Your talk was so well received that we all wanted you back for more. And you surely delivered! People talked about how great the first workshop was and the second workshop later in the year doubled in attendance! I must admit that our group is tough to keep attention. But I noticed during the meeting they were rapt in attention with absolutely no side chatter, that is a rare thing! We appreciate your real world examples of your knowledge and insights. Thank you again for educating us, inspiring us, and entertaining us too!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Monica. It’s truly an honor to speak for your chapter twice in one year. You have a truly dedicated membership and it’s fun to come up there and spend time with you all. I look forward to planning my 2016 visit(s).

  • Wendy Wojcik says:

    WOW!
    Alan is a shot in the arm for what I needed to boost my sales in 2015!
    Sometimes it is hard to keep up-to-date on what is happening with today’s brides.
    Alan will get you going on the right path to health, wealth and happiness!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Wendy. I’m happy to be the catalyst for you. I look forward to hearing your stories of success next time I’m in Seattle.

  • Julie Leslie says:

    Alan graced us for a second time this year at our Greater Seattle National Association of Catering and Events (NACE) Chapter functions, as well as hosted workshops for our members and community on business development. The level of inspiration and engagement that Alan creates is undeniable — all attendees were raptly attentive, taking notes, and exchanging ideas when Alan was not speaking. It was certainly a success for us and our community here, THANK YOU!

    Additionally, when I attended Wedding MBA in Las Vegas this year, Alan’s seminars were exceptional — he was the top speaker of the conference! Many of his ideas and points have become mantras in my workflow. Alan, I am looking forward to the next opportunity to hear you speak!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Julie. It’s an honor to be invited to speak twice in the same year for your NACE chapter. You have a very engaged, active membership, and that says a lot. I look forward to coming back next year and hearing all of the success stories.

  • Julie Kuenzi says:

    Mr. Alan Berg recently spoke at our association ” Las Vegas Wedding Network”. He was tremendously powerful and personable at the same time . Definitely a unique blend of qualities. He genuinely engaged with our guest by addressing their business question to help them with the 4 Step to Sales. This topic was and is applicable to all who are seeking to grow their business. And who doesn’t want to grow their business. Alan is extremely professional and KNOWS his area of expertise. After the speaking portion of the event, I had the opportunity to talk with attendees and many of them were ready and armed with Alan’s tools to close the sale and not to waste the moment, especially when your prospect is giving you clear buying signals. One last thing is, Alan has an energy the is pack with a punch that will get you going. Why wait? Book Alan Berg NOW and see what a difference his tools will make in you business. Thank you Alan for making a difference in our.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Julie, it was great to be able to speak for your group. It was such a cool venue and you and your team are so organized and professional. And, you had my name in lights… in Vegas! That was an unexpected surprise, thanks.

  • Sondra says:

    When you are running a business with the potential for a world market, you need to learn a lot about yourself, especially if you ARE the product. That is the case with me and why I sought Alan’s help. There are elements to my growth that required me to think about distributing myself, both in person (speaking events) and in products (CDs, MP3s, Books), and I didn’t have a clear picture about the what and how. I understand the why, and that’s the first step, but the what and how was causing me too much time in the “i have no idea” head space. This is a wandering, worrying, nail-biting distraction from day-to-day activities and responsibilities. Alan’s years of expertise as a speaker and sales/marketing guru gives little to wonder when you hire him for personal consulting. His no BS style makes him personable and easy to do business with, yet professional enough to emulate.

    As I transition from “real” work to my own mission, an adventure of the soul, Alan Berg has been the angelic voice from adventur-preneur heaven. You don’t have to be in the wedding industry to gain invaluable insight from Alan’s personal consulting. I am in the spiritual industry but everything I have gleaned from 4 hours of personal attention has resulted in actionable items I can use to structure the entire foundation of my business, setting the platform for its future. I am more grateful than I can possibly express for Alan’s availability and services.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sondra, it’s been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to watching your business flourish, so you can reach more people with your message.

  • A follow-up to my review of last week. Using the information that I had learned from Alan at his seminar, I wrote not one but TWO wedding entertainment contracts totaling nearly $2500.00! Did I speak to either bride on the phone? NO. Our conversations were strictly though email or Facebook. I strongly recommend, again, that you hear Alan speak and utilize what he has to say. It works!!

  • Lisa Yeager says:

    Alan Berg is an amazing speaker. I’ve had the honor of hearing him speak a few times now and he always has new and informative tips on how to be more successful. Recently I heard him speak at Wedding Wire World in DC and he had a tip about assuming the sale. When I arrived home I started to put that to use and it works! Our bookings have definitely seen an increase since making that change.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lisa, it was great of you to host our event and I’m so glad to hear how you’re immediately able to use what you heard. Keep sharing your stories of success.

  • Alan Berg is an engaging and dynamic speaker. I appreciated the thoughtful format of his presentation and the practical nature of the content. Alan uses humor appropriately to interact with his audience . He works hard to learn the names of his audience and thus draws you in as he presents. He created a good balance between his straight forward information and anecdotes to illustrate his points.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Stephanie, it was great to have you there today. I’m looking forward to hearing your success stories. Please share.

  • I drove in from Erie PA to once again attend an Alan Berg workshop. In the last 2 days, since applying Alan’s tips about better email conversations, my inbox has exploded! If you want better interaction with potential and current clients, take my advice (and this coming from an almost 20 year full-time entertainer, attend Alan’s workshop!!

    Thank to Alan for a wonderful workshop!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John, it’s often the small changes that have the biggest impact. It’s always great to see you in the audience and to connect between sessions. Let me know how else I can help you.

  • As a professional wedding photographer I do my best to make every customer experience personal. Alan’s wisdom is helping me to take that to a whole new level! Starting with my email address… I can’t wait to read my new book that Alan kindly signed.

  • Derrick Buntaran says:

    I attended 2 sessions with Alan while in Catersource 2014 in Las Vegas. Alan deliver a very engaging and interesting session on Website and Social Media. Full of good content but more than that is the delivery. It’s one thing to have good content but when the delivery is not there sometimes it can be dull. Alan also moderate a panel and did it very well. The thoughts are challenge and probe to get a more enriched discussion that is beneficial for the attendee. Love it.

    Derrick, Indonesia.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Derrick. It’s very proactive of you to travel all the way to catersource from Indonesia. I’m sure it shows in your attention to your business and customers. I look forward to seeing you at catersource next year.

  • Pat Iyer says:

    Alan has the gift of making complex subjects simple. His practical advice delivered at his program as well as in his publications have inspired me to change my website and follow his advice. Well done! You can’t go wrong if you are looking for an engaging, knowledgeable speaker/consultant.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Pat, coming from a fellow speaker that’s high-praise. I look forward to seeing the updates on your site.

  • It has been my pleasure to hear Alan speak on two occasions and I have taken away valuable information each time. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to hear Alan speak as he never disappoints!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jeanne, it’s always great to see you in the audience. I look forward to seeing you there again, soon.

  • Ron Davis says:

    Wow! Alan Berg is one of the finest speakers in the wedding marketing industry. I’ve seen his presentations many times and never fail to come away with specific nuggets which DO improve my marketing success. I’m looking forward to seeing him again soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ron, it was great of you to come to the MBWEP event. I’m looking forward to seeing you again, soon, as well.

  • We recently had Alan come in to the Albany, NY area to host a full day training session and a second day website review session for event sponsors. I could write a book about the many things I learned from Alan’s seminars, but, the first thing I will say is the website review session on day 2 for the smaller group was worth the cost of the sponsorship alone. That alone blew me out of the water and opened up my eyes to how I can improve my business. The first day seminars were jam packed with solid information, examples and tons of nuggets. Alan hosted: 8 tips for better email, can your business survive without social media, creating an exceptional customer experience and how to close more sales. I never thought I could get so much information in one single day. Incredible!!! If you have not seen Alan speak in person, it is something to not be missed. Your mind will swell with knowledge and you will be glad you did! Well worth every single bit of the cost…go to his website and see where he is speaking next close to you. Best speaker I have seen in the country!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mark, for being instrumental in making this event happen. It was your determination to get me up there that brought this together and I couldn’t be happier with the way the days went. I’m looking forward to coming back up next year.

  • Joy Burke says:

    It was my absolute delight to experience Alan this week in Albany. Alan is pure genius… he is able to share his extensive knowledge in a style that is at the same time humorous, entertaining and personable.

    I think I already do a great job of engaging clients, so I went in with the idea that if I learned just one thing, I’d be satisfied. Well in the two days since, I’ve implemented three of Alan’s suggestions. I am not only satisfied, I am thrilled.

    Thanks again, Alan for a great day!

    Warm regards,
    Joy Burke
    Saratoga Wedding Officiant

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Joy. It’s was great having you there. I’m so happy that you are able to implement these ideas so quickly. Please continue to share your stories of success.

  • Tara Feeley says:

    I can’t quite remember when I first saw Alan speak, but after attending conferences and many seminars in my 17 years as a DJ/MC/Entertainer/Singer (do I do enough? 😉 ), I know who’s worth the cost of any dollar spent to see! Hands down, Alan Berg is one of them!!!
    First and foremost, it’s Alan’s content that will surely send a light bulb, or many, to flicker on…and fast! I just don’t know how anyone’s brain can absorb all he shares, so come prepared to TAKE NOTES 🙂 As if Alan’s knowledge wasn’t enough, his personality and great sense of humor add tremendously to the ability to retain information, and the overall experience of any forum in which you learn from him!
    Make a point to SEE, HEAR, LEARN & MEET this truly talented Sales & Marketing Guru for yourself… you’ll wish you’d done it sooner!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tara, for your continued support, and for driving over 4 hours to come to this event. I’m truly humbled by your kind words.

  • Mike Garrasi says:

    I attending my first Alan Berg Seminar last evening and Website Review this morning. I was left speechless!! He is a TRUE Marketing Guru / Expert!! I have been in the Wedding Industry, as a DJ, for the past 24 years and have been to countless seminars. Believe me when I tell you this – Alan Berg is the “Best In The Business”! No one can even comes close to giving you the knowledge that you will attain after attending an Alan Berg Seminar!!! I’ve even hired Anthony Robbins Assistant and he couldn’t teach me in 9 Sessions, what Alan taught me in 24 hours!!

    You will NOT pick up just 1 tip from Alan. That’s right!!! I said it! YOU WILL PICK UP OVER 100 Tips!!! Stuff you thought you knew and were doing correctly and couldn’t be more wrong. WOW!! I was blown away. This was my first seminar with Alan, but definitely not my last.

    Thank you Alan for sharing a Lifetime of Knowledge with me and the rest of our group! I wish you only continued success! YOU ROCK!

    Sincerely,

    Mike Garrasi

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mike, for providing the A/V and for your great enthusiasm, it’s contagious. I look forward to seeing you again, soon.

  • Laurie says:

    Alan has just left the Albany area after giving us two days of his amazing knowledge, help and guidance. As and attendee of our event on Tuesday I was so enlightened to what I need to do to help make communicating to my couples and clients better, more productive and end to closing more sales. Our evening session was on social media and although I have sat in on webinars by others, this was the first time really getting a productive insight into how to use social media to make it work for my business and an understanding of what it can and can not do for me.
    We had a group website review today and all I can say – we were all left speechless and excited to get onto revamping our sites to make them work for us. I am so glad I did not pay someone to redesign my site until after this session. Now I can go forward to not only create a better site but it will save time and money knowing the direction to go. Alan not only tells you what needs to change, samples on how to do it better, but also backs up his guidance with real statistics on WHY – not just because it would “look prettier.” I happened to also be one of the co-organizers of bringing Alan to our area and all I can say is – Thank you Alan, what an amazing pleasure, you exceeded all of our expectations as well went above and beyond in all the time you gave us. Not only did we never look at our phones and watches, Neither did you. So again on behalf of Upstate NY ABC/LNG and Adirondack/Albany ADJA – thank you again. ( and yes I am sure we will be seeing you next spring )

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Laurie, for helping to bring me up to the area and for your gracious hospitality in hosting the workshop today. I love your spirit and I look forward to coming back up for an encore.

  • As an interfaith minister and wedding officiant who is is new to thinking like a business person, Alan’s wisdom, generosity of spirit, humor, and knowledge of sales have enabled me to grow in the areas I have most needed. I have heard Alan on WeddingWireEDU and have just seen him in person in Albany NY. My only regret is that I had to leave the Albany seminar early! Thanks for sharing your great gifts, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sue, for coming out. I’m glad we had the opportunity to meet and I hope to see you at the next event.

  • Dyan Holt says:

    Your speech was eye opening and gave me a lot to think about and change. You are so easy to listen to and a great person. I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet you.

  • Patty Speirs says:

    Although I had heard Alan speak previously at Wedding MBA, it was fantastic listening to (not just hearing) his presentation at MBWEP. Although I had learned so much from Alan at Wedding MBA two years ago – and have put that which I learned into practice – I was able to come away with even more from Tuesday’s talk.

    Alan is very easy to follow and keeps things interesting and relevant to my service industry. I was never tempted to check my e-mail or skip out for fear of missing a new nugget of information I could use to further my business.

    Very well worth the investment.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Patty, it was great seeing you again. Best of luck with learning Japanese for your upcoming client’s wedding. It’s a great testament to your dedication to your customers.

  • Conocí a Alan Berg en el Congreso Latinoamericano de Bodas y Eventos en Guadalajara el año pasado, adquirí su libro ¿Si su pagina web fuera su empleado lo despidiría? Quede impresionada de como un libro puede hacerte pensar tanto acerca de tu empresa… 100% recomendable el libro y Alan una excelente persona, después de adquirir el libro y hacer muchos cambios en nuestra pagina web le pedi su feedback e increíblemente nos contesto!!! realmente apreciamos muchisimo que lo hubiera hecho… si tienes la oportunidad de ir alguna de sus ponencias no lo dudes ni un momento….
    Muy agradecida

  • I heard Alan speak at the Wedding MBA in Las Vegas and at a wedding industry conference in Dublin, Ireland. His knowledge of the wedding industry is extensive and he draws on this knowledge to give powerful and effective advice relevant to all wedding industry professionals. As soon as I had heard Alan presenting I was so impressed that I booked him to come to the UK to work with our team. Thank you Alan, you are an inspiration.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alison. You’re one of the few people who can say you’ve seen me speak in 3 countries! I look forward to seeing you again, soon.

  • As President Elect of the National Speakers Assn. New Jersey chapter I had the great pleasure to be in the audience for Alan’s presentation on the ‘One Page Website’. He is so knowledgeable and gave excellent content on how all of us could improve our websites. I now know what to do!

    Steve Hoffman

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Steve, for inviting me to speak for NSA-NJ. It’s always an honor to present for my speaking peers and to share and give back to the NSA family.

  • Alison Henderson says:

    More than just a speaker

    Alan is a friend that wants to see you and your business grow and succeed. He loves to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for life. His insightful wisdom and stories of experience and diligence is a “MUST” to hear. He is an impressive speaker and, even more so, an impressive Individual. He is currently helping our business to get off the ground; we are working to advertise our creative niche of writing original bridal marches. I would strongly encourage any business or group to take advantage of all the knowledge he has to offer.
    Thank You Alan for visiting the BAWP we are richer for it.
    Godspeed!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alison. I love your passion for music and what you and your husband are trying to bring to people’s special occasions. Persistence and Passion are a wonderful combination.

  • Wow! What a wonderful presentation. I was amazed at your ability to command the audience and deliver insightful and timely information that was not only valuable and enlightening but also very entertaining. Your sense of timing and pithy humor kept the audience engaged for the entire day – something that’s not easy to do with our group. I would recommend your presentation to any group that’s looking to positively impact their sales. I look forward to having you share additional topics with us later this fall.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kevin. It was an honor to speak for Seattle NACE and such a great group of event pros. I’m looking forward to coming back in the fall for an encore.

  • Amy Rathbone says:

    Alan… thank you for coming to Seattle to speak with our NACE group this past Tuesday and Wednesday! You truly exceeded my expectations by a long shot, and many others I’ve spoken with feel the same. We are fortunate to see many speakers on various topics, and I have to say, the room has NEVER stayed so quiet and completely engaged for so long. You could really see all of the clarity and ideas coming to life amongst our wedding and event peers. It was a pleasure to have you with us, and I hope you will be back for an encore very soon!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Amy, it was so great to see you at both events, in the front row, taking pages of notes. I’m looking forward to my encore, thanks! I’d ask you to put in a good word for me… but you just did.

  • Hi Alan,
    I would just like to say thanks for coming out and giving a talk at the Seattle N.A.C.E. meeting Tuesday night. I can honestly say it rates as one of the most informative NA.C.E. dinner meetings I have ever attended.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lance. Your chapter is really fun and engaging (no pun intended). I’m looking forward to coming back for an encore. But, then again, you may have read my mind and already knew that 😉

  • Alan is truly a pro. I was invited by a colleague in the wedding event industry, though I am a salesperson in the domain name industry. I was reminded of sales training I’ve had through the years as well as taught some new, very practical skills I can take back to the workplace (wish I had been there for the email training!) Alan’s success in sales through the years and leadership skills lend to an articulate, fast-moving training time with a twist of self deprecating humor. I really appreciated his references to his wife. His training time can apply to any industry and I especially recommend his training for anyone in the wedding event industry.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sharon. While I speak mostly in the wedding and event industry. As you noted, my topics are business-related and can be applied to most industries. I look forward to hearing your stories of success. Please share.

  • Kami Aguilar says:

    Hi Alan,

    I had the pleasure of attending your conference in Portland last week at Montgomery Park where you were “blowing it up” in the St. Helen’s room. This was the 3rd time I’ve heard you speak. I was present for your first conference in Portland as well as Wedding MBA a couple of years back. I very much enjoy listening to your speak and I always feel fulfilled at the conclusion of your presentation knowing that I have useful information to take with me and implement. I want to thank you for taking the time to come to Portland again.

    • Alan says:

      Hi Kami, it’s so great of you to come back to see me again. You bring a wonderful, positive energy to the room, I look forward to seeing you at the next conference. Thanks.

  • kari ramey says:

    Informative, thoughtful, concise information delivered with great personal touch and humor!
    Alan is a great role model for the way I want to present my business! I’ve got homework!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kari. It was great of you to come to the conference in Portland. I have no doubt you’re working on your updates already.

  • Alesia Zorn says:

    It’s the day after your presentation in Portland, OR on The Angry Bride, The One Page Website and Are You Too Busy to Be Successful. I’ve been going through my notes and I’m halfway through your book “Your Attitude for Success.” I’m fired up! I not only learned things to help grow my business, I’ve learned things that will help me with other aspects in life. Thanks for being so knowledgeable, encouraging and FUN!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alesia. It was wonderful that you could attend, and I really enjoyed speaking with you after the conference and hearing more about you and your business.

  • Lisa Kennedy says:

    Hello Alan! Just a quick note to say that you so much for the insight you brought to our sales team yesterday! We all walked away with great ideas and will revisit our notes early next week to begin implementing new ideas, yes, notes are many but we will get to the top 3 first! Love that concept for all of life, not just in business. You are an inspiration and, although “we didn’t have time,” I am so happy we made time to spend with you, thank you for making time for us! Get home to your wife and enjoy the Holidays. I’ll look very forward to receiving my book, Attitude For Success”, sorry for the shipment upset but as you say, business goes on! Take good care til we see you again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lisa, for bringing your team out and for connecting with the message. Now it’s time to take action on those 3… and then make a new list. Let me know how I can help.

  • Lane' Bigsby says:

    Alan was outstanding! I feel I have a good, solid business background but have been looking for training with a focus around the wedding industry. What I learned in one day from Alan’s presentations would have otherwise taken me months to learn on my own. I walked away feeling so much more confident with my business decisions and a more clear and concise focus on what I should be working on. In fact, I’ve already implemented several of his recommendations! I can’t wait to listen his DVD’s and look forward to hearing him again in the future. Thank you, Alan!

  • I had another wonderful opportunity to soak in some of Alan Berg’s gems of inspiration this week when he spoke in Seattle. A seminar with Alan is like going to a pep rally for your business – you come away ready to go out and “make it happen”. This was probably the 7th time I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Alan’s seminars, and I always take away things that resonate in my head long after, and help give me direction. This coming year an improved website is on my “to-do” list. Thank you, Alan, for sharing yourself with Seattle wedding professionals once again!

  • Vicki Taylor says:

    We celebrated our 20th Anniversary of producing The Tulsa Wedding Show in 2013. I wanted to do something for the wedding community here in Tulsa that wouldn’t be just another party but would reinforce what we have done for 20 years – help our exhibitors build our business. What better way to give wedding professionals tools for success than to have Alan Berg come to speak! Everyone who attended was so enthusiastic about the very practical, use-it-tomorrow tips Alan shared.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Vicki, it was a great day in a beautiful venue (Tarp Chapel). I was honored to be a part of your 20th anniversary celebration.

  • Clane Gessel says:

    Beyond being a fantastic speaker, Alan has helped me transform my wedding business for the better. Bringing his insight from 20+ years in the industry, Alan has helped me define specific goals and ways to target my exact clients through simple yet effective measures. Truly a great person, I’ll always be appreciative of Alan’s friendship and insight.

  • Ashley Jones says:

    I have heard Alan present a Wedding Wire webinar, but recently had the extreme pleasure of hearing him in person as well as having him personally review my website. As a speaker, he brought an energy to the room that kept everyone engaged, and information that was relevant and valuable. During a three-day conference, he was consistent and kept everyone coming back for more!

    As a website consultant, he was able to completely revolutionize my website in the first 15 minutes… and I have a background in graphic design. I made it look pretty, but didn’t keep new user functionality in mind. I’ve already implemented some of his suggested changes and will be making the rest over the next week. I’m so excited to have a website that will be easier for my viewers to navigate across all media platforms and communicate my message better.

    I truly can’t say enough great things about this guy and would highly recommend him as a speaker, website reviewer, and a consultant. I will be calling him again in the future!

  • Maine Wedding Association hosted a seminar with speaker Alan Berg last week and I enjoyed the full day seminar and went back the next day for a website review because I was so impressed with his style. I’ve heard webinars in the past but it was so much better to see him in person. It was personable and informative. He referred to DJ’s during the morning session and as soon as we had a chance to speak during lunch, the topics included bands and dj’s in the afternoon. I work with a band and was very impressed that Alan would include my business and topics that were important to me. Thanks Alan!

  • Caitlin Vance says:

    Alan Berg is fantastic. He is smart, articulate, and inspiring. His advice is priceless and the experiences he shares will make you laugh out loud. So glad that I had the chance to hear him speak. THANK YOU ALAN!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Caitlin, it was great to meet you and everyone at Hotels Unlimited the other day. I look forward to coming back and working with you, again.

  • Jenny says:

    I had the pleasure of attending a full day of Alan’s seminars on October 10, and can honestly say it was one of the most informative presentations I have been to. Even though it was a full day, it never once felt boring or dull. I was always engaged and eager to learn what he was going to explain next. Before I knew it, the day was over and I had a notebook full of notes that can be easily implemented to our day-to-day operations. I definitely would not hesitate to attend another one of his seminars. Thank you, Alan, for spending the day with us!

  • Alan Katz says:

    I have had the opportunity to hear Alan Berg Speak on numerous occasions. I have seen him inspire and enlighten everyone who hears him. His tools have helped me to be the best I can be. This last month was the biggest in my company history and I owe this partially to things I learned from going to his presentations.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alan. It’s always great to see you in my audience and to get your feedback on how I can be even better the next time.

  • Shannon says:

    Alan offers specific advice that can be easily implemented. My biggest take away was how to write a better email. I have gone from a 30% response rate to almost 70% on individual sales emails. What a marketing genius. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Shannon. Sometimes the answer is right in front of us, we just have to have someone point it out to see it. I’m so happy to have helped.

  • Tara says:

    I attended one of Alan’s seminars yesterday 10.10.13 and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was one of the first seminars I attended that I didn’t look at the clock wondering when it was going to end! I found him to be very knowledgeable and easy to follow! Just this morning I applied one of his tips to an mail to a bride! I cant wait for the next seminar!
    Thanks, Alan

  • Vickie Kuan says:

    The first time I heard Alan speak is at a networking event of American Bridal Consultants. Your topic is “5 Reasons Why They Leave Your Website in 5 Seconds” and it is very helpful. Yesterday I heard you speak again is at WeddingWire webinar about how to stand out in the evolving email inbox. Those 8 tips are excellent points and make me realize my mistakes while replying to all prospective clients (I do have a template that I copy and paste when replying to all inquiries, I admitted, it is too long and too informative). The idea of email is a communication channel not an advertising channel really stuck at my head. I can’t thank Alan enough for these useful information. I bought Alan’s book on my kindle too. I will end this with my favorite quote- “There is a difference between knowing the path and walking down the path”. I can spend all the time attending all the business seminar but if I don’t take any action, it is meaningless. I look forward to implementing your wisdom down the road. Thank you very much, Alan!

  • Lisa Werth says:

    I have heard Alan speak live at Wedding Wire World 2012. I unfortunately missed 2013 as we actually had a gig that day. However, I also follow him in a wide range of social media platforms and at the Wedding Wire Pro Forum. I have learned so many things from him that I have applied to helping my company grow. Even this morning he chimed in on an issue I have been experiencing and gave some really great script for me to use with potential clients. Today I have had a few quote requests come in and tried them out. THEY ARE WORKING. Thank you so much Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lisa Jo, I’m so glad that the tips are working for you. It’s the little tweaks that can make a huge difference. Kudos for taking action. Let me know how else I can help.

  • Heard Alan on a WeddingWire Webinar and he offered excellent advise for email marketing! Will definitely be using the tips he gave us.
    Thank you Alan!

  • Aldo Ryan says:

    Alan Berg is, most certainly, my favorite speaker at the Wedding MBA in Las Vegas each year. I think I attend just to hear him knock it out the park every time and I enjoy being motivated with a touch of tasteful humor.

    Alan’s material is also spot on, fully comprehensive and exudes a level of energy that’s just perfect.

    He is also one of two speakers (out of the 20 or 30) where I NEVER find myself looking down at my watch. And that’s HUGE for me!!!!!

  • Jose Castro says:

    I heard you speak at Wedding Wire World on July 29 2013 and you had a great impact on my
    approach to corresponding with customers via email. I look forward to following up on all the great content that you covered. Thanks Again Alan

  • Alene says:

    Alan, Thank you so much for always inspiring me to grow. From the first time I heard you speak at an ABC conference, to the latest AWEP-Birmingham conference, I have consistently taken away “nuggets” to move me to the next level professionally.

    Honestly, without your advice so many years ago, I doubt I would be where I am today!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alene, it was great to see you again and to hear of your success. Please let me know how I can help with your future successes.

  • Diane K. says:

    Alan does not talk to you, he SPEAKS to you. He speaks right to your (business) heart and mind. I have now listened to two of Alan’s webinars sponsored by Wedding Wire. His knowledge and experience is wonderful to listen to through his stories and funny anecdotes. But, his sincerity and genuine willingness to help gives his audience a sense of power they did not have before listening to Alan. He is grounded and always willing to answer any of your questions. Alan is much more than a motivational speaker: he is an asset to your business. I am excited to see him speak in person in July for Wedding Wire World. Now, if we can get him on the list for Engage!13 Montelucia, I will be in wedding conference heaven!

  • Gwyn says:

    Motivational speakers are normally the perfect storm of everything I hate: sitting still, being told what to do, and listening to other people talk. They cause me to regress into an eye-rolling, authority-rejecting teenager. Ten minutes into Alan’s presentation, though, I found myself interested, engaged, and eager to learn more! He made some brilliant points and following them has helped me increase my wedding bookings by 50% so far this year . . . and the year is only half over! Even if, like me, you’d normally rather have teeth pulled than listen to a speaker, give Alan a shot. He is brilliant, dynamic, and an excellent investment.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gwyn, that’s very flattering and I appreciate you posting them here. I look forward to seeing you at Wedding MBA this year.

  • Sarah says:

    I very much enjoyed yesterdays webinar on Closing the Sale. The take home for me was “Feel-Felt-Found”. This is the 3rd time I have heard you speak. At Wedding MBA in 2011 your talk inspired us to revamp our entire website, and we have heard so much positive feedback on our site ever since. Looking forward to seeing you again at Wedding Wire World this summer!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sarah, I’m so glad to have inspired you to update your site… and now you’re reaping the benefits. I look forward to seeing you next month in DC.

  • Ian Wilson says:

    You did an excellent job on the webinar that I watched on Bride live TV. I found your presentation helpful and I am now incorporating them into my business.

    Thanks

    Ian

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ian (also my son’s name), I appreciate you tuning in. I’d love to come down and speak in NZ, please let me know of any organizations or conferences. Thanks.

  • Patrick says:

    I have had the opportunity to see Alan speak on many occasions and I always come away with something useful and inspiring for my business. We as wedding professionals need to be open and engaged with our new tech savvy brides, but never lose sight of the nuts and bolts of sales and marketing of our businesses. Alan has keyed in on the simple things that keep the doors open and employees paid. I encourage anyone who is looking to improve their business to see Alan Berg speak and get ready to be inspired. Bravo, Alan! Look forward to seeing you soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Patrick, it was great to see you in your home town, OKC. I look forward to sharing the stage with you again at Wedding Market Expo.

  • Sheila says:

    The team at Harvey’s Point were delighted to welcome yourself, Mark and the WOL team to Harvey’s Point last week. I really enjoy your talk both this time and also in Feb. Little simply things like don’t send a brochure to IPhone to using our reviews more etc make perfect sense but we forgot about. These small steps make a difference. We have already started to make changes to how we communicate with our valued clients.. We hope you enjoyed your time with us and hopefully our paths will cross again soon. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sheila, it was great to see you again, and to finally experience the beautiful Harvey’s Point. Thanks for hosting the conference. Carole and I look forward to coming back up, next time to stay longer.

  • Silvia Angel says:

    Alan gave me the answers to many questions I had for years!!! Very valuable information in his conferences, and an excellent speaker. I am now reading his books and learning so much!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Silvia. I really appreciated you coming out for the conference. i look forward to hearing more about your success.

  • Yvonne says:

    Really enjoyed the weddingsonline conference in Galway last week. Alan is an excellent speaker and we came away refreshed and inspired! Looking forward to meeting again. Yvonne

  • Gill says:

    I had the good fortune of hearing Alan speak at the Weddings online Conference in Fota Island Resort. I’m new to this side of the industry and came away with a lot of good pointers that will stand me in good stead in my career. On top of it being educational it was thoroughly entertaining.
    Thanks Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gill, it was great that you could attend at this early point in your career and I wish you lots of success.

  • Liam Kidney says:

    I attended two of Alan’s talks in Ireland this year. I found them hugely educational and took away loads of fresh ideas on how I can improve my customer service, website and business workflow. He helped me increase my sales and my blog and website have improved with tips that I learnt from Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Liam, I was so happy to see you at the Galway Bay conference. I look forward to seeing the improvements to your site and hearing more about your success.

  • Alister Kidd says:

    Just a note to thank you for the knowledge you imparted through the series of presentations you delivered last week and which I can only describe as a unique and effective blend of Digital & Traditional Sales & Marketing best practices.

    Having been in the Digital arena for best part of seventeen years I can honestly say your approach and delivery was the most comprehensive, yet simple to understand package of presentations and advice I have witnessed. Again I thank you.

    I look forward to your next visit to Ireland.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alister, it was great to see you again and I look forward to coming back to Ireland again, soon.

  • Darek Novak says:

    Hi,
    First thank You for come to Ireland and give me opportunity to be on Your presentation.
    My first thoughts was i won’t go as probably weddings online would like to sell me some of their adv:):)
    But price was so good, place quite convenient for me and i decide to go and try .
    I’m so happy now i did go, and i would love to go for another. You did it professional way. Your both speeches Alan and Mark was so interested , simple and so easy for understand.
    Some of Your advices are so handy and not complicaited.
    As you said you exceed my expactations:)

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Darek, it was great that you took the chance to come out. Our goal for this, Mark, WeddingsOnline and I, was to bring quality business education to the wedding and event professionals in your area. As you said, it was not an infomercial for any of us. Thank you for pointing that out so that others will see that and take the opportunity to come to the next one. Let us know how we can help you more.

  • Jennifer says:

    I attended the weddings online conference in Galway on 21st May and was delighted to be able to come away full of new ideas , it was very inspirational.
    Alan was very engaging and was full of great advice. I would highly recommend going to see this guy in action , You will not be disappionted
    Many Thanks Alan come back to ireland soon ( so you can get your passport )

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jennifer, it’s been a great week traveling around Ireland and meeting so many wonderful people as yourself. I’m looking forward to my next trip over here to become an honorary Irishman!

  • Claire says:

    Much appreciate the insight given to us at the weddingsonline conference in Cork, Ireland on the 20th May. Your talks were certainly inspirational and great words of wisdom imparted!
    Hopefully i will have the opportunity again.
    Many thanks

  • Audrey says:

    Amazing as always, thoroughly enjoyed today’s motivational and inspiring talk at fota island, cork. Alan is truly amazing and expresses words, scenarios better than many.
    If you are lucky enough to have the chance to see him I highly recommend booking a place.
    Many thanks Alan and I hope our paths cross again someday.
    p.s happy 30th wedding anniversary for wednesday.

  • Devin says:

    Thank you Alan for spending time with us here in OKC. The way Alan presented everything to us was very easy to understand and very valuable. We gained a lot of great information and we are excited about putting it to good use. Alan kept our attention with humor and a great presentation. We are really looking forward to hearing him speak again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Steve and Devin, it was great seeing you again and finally coming to your town. I hope to see you at Wedding MBA or the Las Vegas DJ Show this year.

  • Garett Smith says:

    What an awesome conference! I’ve been to sales conferences in the past, usually bored out of my mind! But Alan Berg is a breath of fresh “sales” air! Not only was Alan easy to follow, but his concept is totally doable! Thanks Alan, can’t wait to do my web sight review with you! Bring on more weddings!

  • Chasen Shaw says:

    I’ve heard Alan speak for years. It doesn’t get stale. It’s never the same. It is always informative and the content is extremely valuable. The best part is his delivery. He’s real and friendly, intelligent but not condescending, personable yet professional. I wholeheartedly recommend attending a seminar, and beyond that, I highly recommend retaining him for advanced consultations if you truly want to improve your wedding business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Chasen, I told you I would get to OK! It was a wonderful conference and a great group of attendees. I look forward to seeing you at the next conference… I know you’ll be there. You’re always there when there’s business education opportunities!

  • KrisMonier says:

    Alan is an amazing presenter! I learn so much every time I get the pleasure of attending his seminars. He covers a broad range of topics that can be applied to the wedding industry and any other industry! I highly recommend attending if he’s anywhere near your hometown. You won’t be disappointed!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kris, to you and your family for bringing me in for this. It’s my first time to OKC and I had a really great time.

  • Escuché a Alan por primera vez en 2007 en una conferencia en Phoenix, AZ., y me encantó su presentación fue muy inspiradora y trascendental tanto para mi como para mis proyectos de trabajo. Cuando tuve mi primer seminario para los profesionales y emprendedores de la industria de las bodas y eventos en Cancún, México supe que Alan tenia que estar ahí para inspirar e instruir con sus estupendas presentaciones a los profesionales mexicanos. No me equivoque, Alan fue uno de los oradores favoritos y obtuvo los más altos puntajes en la opinión y preferencia de los asistentes. Fue fenomenal!!

    • Alan says:

      Gracias, Claudia. I’m looking forward to coming back to Cancun to present at the Weddings & Events Proactive Professionals conference this year.

  • Stacey says:

    Alan not only gives me great insight and tips that I can immediately implement, but I love that he questions you on your business practices. While not providing the solution to your problem (as everyones solution may differ), he questions in a way that requires you to search yourself for the answer. I like to say that I leave an Alan Berg seminar with a simmering pot on the back burner of my mind. It continues to work back there until the answer comes to me. It’s not often that day, or maybe even that week, but as long as I continue to revisit it, it eventually boils over into action that I can implement and results I can quantify.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Stacey, you hit the nail on the head. I can’t give each person in the audience specific answers, but I can teach you to think differently and approach your site, and marketing, from a new perspective. Thanks for coming to the event in Grapevine and for your support.

  • Alan’s seminars “10 Ways Your Website is Killing Your Business”, and “Close More Sales, Today!”, were exactly what my wedding video business was missing. As all of us, wedding professionals, are always trying to be as good as we can in our craft, but usually this is not enough to fill up your calendar. I can be the best in the world, but if no one knows, it doesn’t matter. Alan is a great speaker, but also very approachable, and the best thing about him, is that he cares!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Patrik, it was great seeing you at NPVA. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Audio CD series, as well.

  • Ara Gelenian says:

    I saw Alan again at the NPVA meeting in Boston. Alan is the perfect man to see if you want and/or need to improve in marketing and getting the word out about your business, Alan is the one to see. He has great wisdom and practical knowledge of how to improve yourself. Energetic, funny, and so smart. He’s fantastic. Absolutely NOT to be missed. Do whatever you need to do to go see him. Your life and business will definitely improve. Thanks Alan!!

  • Alan Berg is a wedding business ROCKSTAR – I spent yesterday afternoon at one of his presentations and my head is still spinning from all of his thoughts, ideas and helpful tips. Each topic was presented in an easy-to-follow, thoughtful and engaging way – if you’ve sat through seminars put on by speakers who present business-101 topics, common-knowledge info and have a general disconnect from the audience, you’ll find Alan’s presentations to be refreshing, current, and super-useful for your business. It’s clear that he loves helping wedding business owners succeed, and I can’t wait to implement some of his suggestions.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brendan. It was great to finally get up to your area. I look forward to seeing again, soon, at another industry event.

  • Alan’s presentation to the New England Professional Videographers Association was electric. “10 Ways Your Website is Killing Your Business” gave us 10 ways to make significant improvements to our websites’ performance – which means getting more people to hire us. Fantastic work, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Catie, thanks to you and the NPVA for inviting me up there. Let’s get next year’s event on our calendars soon.

  • I too am a professional speaker and business consultant” however, at the recent Catersource conference in Las Vegas, I was an attendee. Alan’s presentation was exciting and informative. I was so impressed that I made certain to attend another class he was teaching. When I met him at the book signing later, I told him he should teach a class on how be a public speaker – he answered, “I do.” 🙂

    I put his ideas to immediate use on my website and the results have been amazing. His suggestions paid for my trip to Las Vegas and will continue to pay off.

    Thank you Alan for your kindness and passion for helping others.

    Carl Franklin Jones

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Carl, it was great connecting with you at Catersource. Thanks for sharing your results. You’re obvisously a man of action, and that’s where the magic happens… When you take action.

  • Maria Madden says:

    Alan
    I attended my first Conference in Clontarf Castle, Dublin on Monday and will really never forget it! You are an amazing speaker with such passion and motivation. Catrine and I learned so much and returned to our store today full of enthusiasm and new ideas. We really enjoyed our chat in the lobby after the Awards Ceremony and practised all the way home in the car (2 hours) our conversation relating to receiving the phone call from bride re dress price! Hope you enjoyed your game of golf. Looking forward to reading your books and CDs. Thanks again for a really wonderful presentation.

    Maria & Catrine, My Dress, Ireland.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Maria & Catrine, it was so nice to meet you both in Dublin. I’m glad to have helped you and look forward to hearing how your new phone skills work out for you!

  • Alan was a very informative and honest speaker. I could tell he wanted us all to succeed in our differing wedding businesses. Thank you so much Alan for your time and wisdom!

  • Alan, you were fantastic! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and wisdom to help me build and grow my business. In a way I’m glad more people didn’t come out to the seminar February 11th, 2013. Now I can gobble up all the business they will leave behind! (smile)

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Marc, for being one of the leaders in your market and walking the walk. I agree that others can’t benefit from the education and networking if they don’t attend.

  • Rob Arken says:

    Where do I ever begin to say what a wonderful job Alan did speaking at our Year End Convention for the bridal cookware sales division last week in Las Vegas ? The man knows his stuff. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to someone who gets not ONLY the bridal industry, but gets life…….the subjects discussed and the thoughts provoked thereafter are truly amazing. I want to THANK YOU personally for giving us your time, your energy, your passion, and most of all, your amazing talent. It was an honor to then spend some time with my brother and you just dissecting even a drop further some of the ideas your highlighted and how it applies to us. You are a game changer. And for anyone in the bridal industry , or any industry for that matter, who ever gets a chance to hear this man speak , I cannot tell you how much it will serve you, your customers, your family and your business. THANK YOU MR BERG for being such a great person and I wish you nothing but joy and happiness in 2013 and beyond.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob. It was great speaking with you and Matt. We’re obviously of the same mind when it comes to taking care of the customer. I’m glad we had this time together in Las Vegas.

  • I recently saw Alan speak in Detroit about communicating with brides via e-mail. Most notably, I find Alan to be a present and very relatable speaker. He’s knowledgeable and entertainment!

    Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicholas, it was great to meet you and thanks again for saving the day by bringing a PA system. You must have been a Boy Scout as you were certainly prepared.

  • I just attended Alan’s “How to Communicate via Email” seminar in Chicago. The very next day I had a situation where I was tempted to write back to a bride with all kinds of emotions to get my point across and show her why she was making a mistake. I used the info from Alan’s seminar to slow down and write a much more effective email that ended up with me getting a $11,000 contract I very well may have not gotten if it wasn’t for his class. The best thing about Alan’s seminars is that you can use his techniques and info right away. Everything he’s talking about is geared to helping your business grow ASAP! Take the classes, read his books and ask lots of questions. Then apply what you’ve learned and watch your business grow!

  • Justin Chan says:

    Just saw Alan speak at the Greater Philadelphia Videographers Association yesterday. His presentation about communicating with brides using email was very informative. As someone who grew up with email I thought I knew how to talk to clients via email. Some of the basic tips he gave I realized right away I was not doing.

    24 hours later I’ve already made changes to how I communicate with clients and one new email resulted in hearing back from a lead I thought was long dead.

    Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Justin, I love to hear a Gen Y’er, like yourself, is able to use these tips for better emailing. I know they’re applicable to everyone, and sometimes people who grew up with technology don’t think about how it can be used more effectively. Thanks for sharing.

  • Alan’s Managing The Modern Bride conference on December 4 was fantastic! All of the content was fresh and Alan was very engaging. The use of real life examples made it easy to adapt the lessons to my specific situations. Since I started applying what I learned about email and facebook communication the very next day, I know the conference was a great investment! I would love to attend another event with Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Audrey. It’s great to hear that you were able to use ideas from the presentation so quickly. Keep sharing your success stories with me, I love to hear them.

  • Sue McCain says:

    I attended Alan’s presentation on ‘Making the Sale’ on Nov 14, 2012 in Winston-Salem, NC sponsored by the Triad Bridal Association and I am always happy when I can learn (or re-learn) one or two things that can be applied. This was definately the case because during the following week after the presentation I used two of Alan’s techniques and made two sales! Using the techniques also gave me more confidence when asking for the sale (i.e. I knew exactly what I was doing!) and I know my customers both felt my professionalism and confidence. I definately recommend taking time to attend one of Alan’s seminars if you ever get the opportunity! Thanks Alan!

  • Eric Butler says:

    I attended the Wedding MBA in October and Alan was by far the greatest of the many excellent speakers at the convention. No matter what was on the schedule, Alan’s talks were a must see. I especially appreciated the send off talk on the final day of Wedding MBA. As a sometimes discouraged photographer it was exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Eric, that’s exactly what I was hoping everyone would get from “Fearless – conquering the new wedding reality”. I know that it’s been a long, 2 1/2 days, so I want to send you off on a high note. Thanks for validating that for me. See you next year!

  • I want to thank you for all your advice you gave us last night in Winston-Salem.
    Last night I got a wedding inquiry and used your input right away. It works – Thank You.
    We had a e-mail conversation already 8 times, it seems like we know each other already.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Armin. I’m so glad that you were able to use the ideas we discussed last evening so quickly, and successfully. It’s always good to see you.

  • Cathy MacRae says:

    I recently had the good fortune to attend one of Alan Berg’s workshops, sponsored by the Calgary Bridal Association. It was a fantastic day filled with amazing and relevent information that I could take away and immediately begin implementing in my small business – website updates, sales strategies, email contact with brides, settling disputes, and so much more! It was an incredible workshop and I’m already seeing the difference it’s making in my business. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Cathy. It was a great day up in Calgary, beautiful weather and a great group of wedding pros. I’m looking forward to a return visit.

  • Barkley Sury says:

    Our team had a great time at Alan Berg’s most recent seminar. It was fun, informative, and we really walked away with some useable advice. We are looking forward to hopefully hosting a seminar of our own in the Spring.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Barkley, it was great having you and your team at the event. I look forward to having an event at The Palace at Somerset Park next year.

  • Jeets says:

    We heard and met Alan Berg at WMBA2012— ‘fearless’
    All I can say is , Alan is now the little voice in my head which keeps encouraging me when ever I have doubts. In other words, we signed up to be FEARLESS.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jeets. It was great meeting you at Wedding MBA. I’m glad to hear that you’re living Fearlessly! Let me know how else I can help.

  • Lance Morris says:

    Hi Alan,
    Just wanted to take a moment and say thanks. Yours was the best seminar that I attended at Wedding MBA. I get bored listening to most people talk for more than 10 minutes, but you kept it interesting and me engaged.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lance. I appreciate your thoughts. It’s tough to compete with the aftermath of the nightlife in Vegas, so I try to keep it animated and moving. I look forward to seeing you in my audience again soon.

  • Alan, I really enjoyed your message at the Wedding Mba. I have had mant opportunities to hear great speakers at Monavie and Primerica seminars before but i found you are far better than many because you care. I didn’t buy your books yet because I am just starting this business and have low budgetidis. I really like the concept of your books. Your questions do make me think. Thank you again for the time you gave us.

    Sincerely,

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Susan, it was a great conference. I very much appreciate your thoughts as I do really care about my audiences. I’m so glad it comes through. I look forward to signing my books for you when you’re ready.

  • Karen says:

    Not only did I close the sale 🙂 I closed two in one day!!!…. with the most fantastic writing skills given to me by Alan !
    I had some Brides sitting on the fence still… The one I was really debating on how I was going to proceed to close the deal was a sensative issue, as her and the fiance just laid to rest a good friend who’s life was taken away in a horrible crime.

    I received alot of emails from the bride noting they hadnt forgotten about me and advised me on the situation in their lives.
    So it had been hanging in the wings for quite sometime with me wondering how on earth am I going to gather enough courage to close the deal as Alan puts it

    So that being said I showed empathy 100%… where It is in my nature to do just that in such a situation.. I asked them if they required any other infomation I neglected to give them in our previous meeting.. period end of sentance.. and patiently waited…..
    It Completely worked ! I not only recieved an email, her fiance called me to chat on the telephone

    As previously discussed its not what you say its how you say it. Im all about the Mirror now
    Your amazing Alan, your lectures helped me motivate myself out of such an awkward and sensative postion with my clients
    If you dont know Alan??? Well you should!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Karen, I’m so happy to see that you’ve been able to, so quickly, use ideas you learned at my presentations, and turn them into sales right away. Kudos!

  • Not only are you so clear and concise in your message, you are a speaker that really cares about his audience! I felt that you were genuinely interested in turning on the light bulbs in the crowd. Your delivery was one that kept my attention and interest the entire day. Thank you for coming to Calgary. I look forward to reading your book. Brilliant day. So glad I came.

  • Kathryn Hamm says:

    Alan is an engaging, direct, knowledgeable speaker who can command a large audience while also reaching out to make important points with each individual within the room. His presentation on sales strategies, for which I was present at the recent WeddingWire World conference, was spot on and very well-received by the wedding professionals who attended. He used humor and his related experience to make concrete points about how wedding professionals can improve their services to prospective clients while also refining their business skills.

    It’s not easy to present Big Picture concepts and translate them into personally and professionally applicable take-aways for a large audience, but Alan did so – effortlessly.

  • Marty Moran says:

    I enjoyed and thought very informative the seminar I recently attended with Alan as the speaker. Some funny stories intertwined with education added to the entire experience. One thing I am always amazed at in the business world is how so many business people think they are always correct in their assumptions on handling their affairs. Alan simply brought to light some of the issues business people neglect.

    More business people need to listen to Alan share some common sense in business.

    Marty Moran

  • Alla says:

    I attended conference in Tampa , Florida. It was the most helpful and inspiring presentation ever! Thank you , Alan, for helping small businesses to stand above the crowd! Your tips and recommendations about Social media and websites are priceless.

  • Gary Bettan says:

    I had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak at the LIVA (Long Island Videographer’s Assosiation) meeting last Tuesday night. He is an excellent speaker and he really understands the marketing and sales challenges facing Event Videographers today. If you are an Event Videographer, I recommend you head over to his website and check out his books and DVDs. I really think they can help you grow your business. This excellent article highlights why it is so important to hire a Videographer for your wedding.

    I was so impressed that I blogged about on teh Videoguys.com blog http://www.videoguys.com/Blog/E/Lets+watch+our+first+dance++oh+thats+right+we+cant/0x3547f6de62beefbcfa3fbb3734e99721.aspx

    Gary

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gary. It was wonderful coming back to LIVA. You have a great group, very engaged and always looking for new ideas. I look forward to coming back.

  • Jill Nobles says:

    I met Alan at EPMEN in Bethlehem PA and bought several of his books. His personality and energy really spoke to me that day. I have been desperately trying to find time to reorganize my life and my business and each day I take a few minutes to read from his books. I am truly thankful for meeting him and for having his books to reflect on. His book, “Your Attitude For Success” is changing my perspective continuously. I am thankful for the perspective it has shown me and how it has impacted me. I keep re-reading it! Thank you Alan, for inspiring me and motivating me. He stirred something inside of me that day. He has inspired me to change my perspective and is continuously helping me move forward with my life and my business. I look forward to hearing him speak again sometime. Thank you so much Alan!!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jill. I’m so happy you’ve connected with my words and glad to see the positive impact they’re having. Keep me posted on your successes.

  • Alan has been an invaluable asset as I have started my new business venture. He is insightful, professional, and always on top of the current trends. I am constantly improving my business due to his wisdom. Thank you Alan for the insights and take- aways!

  • CJ Dickson says:

    Just a quick note to say thanks for sharing for your insight and wisdom with me and my team over the past couple of days. We had a great staff meeting yesterday discussing highlights and take-aways from each of the presentations we attended and as always – have a pretty long to-do list! But I am thrilled as every single action item on the list will improve my business.

    It was also refreshing to see my team really processing the ideas and putting them into practical action. My primary sales person, Amy, who attended your sales seminar on Tuesday was even inspired to do several hours of unsolicited research on her own time during our busiest time of year to create more effective ways to follow up with our leads and improve their experience at our venue. Let me just say that was a very pleasant and unexpected result! Thank you!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, CJ, it was great seeing you and meeting your team. I’m always happy to see my audience taking action right away. That’s part of my brand… actionable content. Thanks for sharing.

  • Jeff Smith says:

    I recently heard Alan Berg speak for the first time and I was completely impressed. he gave me great insight into what clients are thinking and feeling when researching potential vendors for their wedding or event. He shared a great deal of priceless information with knowledge and humor and I left the seminar with a sense of empowerment to elevate the level of success for my business. I would highly recommend his seminars to everyone with a need for promotion and marketing.

  • John-Claude says:

    I booked Alan to speak at the annual meeting and conference of the IDC – International Drycleaners Congress – in Baltimore last month, based on the enthusiastic recommendation of my Marketing Director (who had seen Alan speak at two prior events). Alan has a way of connecting with his audience that is sorely lacking in so many other presenters I have endured over the years. Our attendees from 5 continents were delighted with his presentations. On a personal note, I had the distinct pleasure of spending a few hours with Alan “off-line” as we car-pooled from NJ to Baltimore. His passion and optimism are contagious and therapeutic!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John, it was great meeting you, your family and IDC members from around the world. I look forward to working more with you and the various organizations with which you’re connected. The drive down was one of the best parts.

  • Alan, thanks so much for a great day of information! When I attend conferences like this I look forward to gaining a few small nuggets of wisdom but I can really say I came away with much more than nuggets. I’m looking forward to watching the DVD’s I purchased from you and talking with you soon for a one on one for my website. One thing I wanted to share was that “attitude reflects leadership” listening to you today has definitely given me a new “attitude” towards my marketing, thanks for the leadership.

    Blessings Beyond Measure!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gary, it was great meeting you and I look forward to helping you and Heavy G Productions towards your goals.

  • Elizabeth says:

    I heard Alan speak in Phoenix last night and I could not be more grateful. The discussion regarding Social Media was no-nonsense and straightforward. I am in start-up mode and my head has been spinning with all of the options. I have spent hours in on-line ‘social media universities’ and had yet to create a clear vision of what I really NEEDED to be doing. 2 hours with Alan and I left psyched and with a much clearer vision of how to move forward. It was the best two hour investment of my time in the last several months. Thank-you so much Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Elizabeth, I really appreciate you coming to the event and I’m happy that you took so much away from it. A clear focus is what I was hoping you and the other attendees would get. Sounds like “Mission Accomplished”. Thanks for the feedback.

  • Adam Tiegs says:

    After seeing Alan many times, most recently at the Wedding Industry Leaders Conference, I still continue to learn things that help improve our website, our business process and ultimately impact our bottom line. Thank you Alan for all you do! Can’t wait to make time to read the new book, “Your Attitude For Success!”

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Adam. It’s always great to spend time with you. Thanks for bringing me to the ISES luncheon and introducing me to John Chen and other wonderful event pros in Seattle.

  • I have had the opportunity to hear Alan speak a number of times over the last 7 years or so, both when he worked for the Knot and more recently as his own company. His message is balanced, practical, on point, and most importantly feasable, for wedding professionals.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bob. I’m looking forward to our conference in San Antonio. It’s great of you to invite me to speak to local wedding pros, and also to host the event. That really shows your commitment to support the local wedding community.

  • Sal Richetti says:

    I have had the pleasure ok knowing Alan and have been seeing him speak at different conferences for at least 8-10 years. In that time frame I have seen many other speakers. Alan is one of the few speakers that I will make time to see over and over. He also is the only speaker that gets a standing ovation. Alan understands and solves problems and always has fresh new ideas . As a wedding vendor myself and a bridal show producer, I highly recommend and that you do yourself a big favor and add Alan into your business plan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sal, for inviting me to come to Pittsburgh to speak to your exhibitors and friends in the wedding industry. It’s been great watching your business expand over the years.

  • Jim Frericks says:

    After having attended several of Alan’s seminars as a guest over the years, I felt it important to actually host Alan and his Wedding Industry Leaders Conference in Cleveland for our valued clients last year. To this day, I get compliments from many of the attendees thanking me for bringing him in. I can safely say that nearly every business in attendance has implemented, in some fashion, many of Alan’s suggestions to improve their (and ours) business conditions. Alan’s incredible insight and dead-on analysis of the bridal industry proved incredibly beneficial for all of us and we look forward to hosting him again very soon.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jim, for your comments and for inviting me to your area. We had a really engaged audience, good questions and a jam-packed day of information. I look forward to coming back to your area soon.

  • Katrina says:

    I heard Alan speak at on two different occasions. A couple years ago at a Knot Vendor Meeting and at the Epic Summit in Lodi, NJ. both times he left me motivated, intrigued, and thinking about ways to improve my business. Things I may think I am doing right, he made me look back to see ways to better improve upon. I’ve already implemented some things I have learned and seen a change in production. Would love to hear him speak again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Katrina, it was great seeing you at the EPIC Summit and I look forward to seeing you soon at another industry event.

  • Alan Berg is skilled speaker. He can take any topic and make it dynamic. He is among the highest ranked speakers year after year at the Wedding MBA. Alan is able to take technical subject matter and make it interesting. I have yet to see Alan Berg give a speech that is anything but exceptional! We recommend Alan without reservation.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Shannon. Wedding MBA just keeps getting better every year. I look forward to working with you to bring new content again this year.

  • Danielle says:

    I have heard Alan speak on many occasions. I had the pleasure of attending the CSE Expo 12 in Toronto last week and like all other speaking engagements Alan left us motivated and with a lot to add to our “To Do” lists. Every time, I walk away with a better understanding of how we can improve our business and what changes need to be done. Although, one of his topics last week was one I have heard before I still took a lot in. There are not many seminars that I would sit through twice, but Alan is always engaging and full of knowledge.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Danielle, it was great seeing you again. Thanks for sitting front and center and being so supportive. I look forward to seeing you at Wedding MBA again this year where I’ll be giving 3 new presentations.

  • I’ve had the opportunity to hear Alan speak on several occasions and each time I learn something new. Alan was a guest speaker in Bahamas with our WPIC group and wedding conference. I couldn’t take enough notes. I then attended the MBA in Las Vegas where Alan touched on another avenue regarding social media. As a member of Wedlock Magazine I had the privilege of a 2+hour webinar with Alan as he touched on website improvements. Needless to say I was excited to see that he was a guest speaker at this year’s CSEExpo12 in Toronto and touched on many aspects of our business ie. elements of an effective website, ROI, goal setting and many other topics that will lead us to our success. And yes I decided to buy all his books because you just can’t get enough of Alan Berg. Thank you so much for all your insight and I will sign up for a website overview with you.

    I had the opportunity to hear Alan speak at the EPIC Summit in Lodi, NJ. He is awesome! Alan gave a message on attitude that really resonated with me. Through the narrative of his own life experience and triumphs, I received real insight on moving forward in the right way. Not only was his presentation great, but Alan took time to speak with me personally afterward for almost an hour! A truly genuine human being, I am happy that I got the opportunity to interact with him.
    I am starting to paint, Alan…..one wall at a time.
    Thank you!!!!

      Thanks, Colin, it was great meeting and speaking with you. I get the feeling you know what you need to do. Sometimes we get stuck where we are and we need a push. I’m glad to help and I look forward to hearing your triumphs.

    I had the opportunity to hear Alan speak at a Wedding Industry Workshop in Paso Robles, CA. He is both humorous and informative. I have to say that the portion of the workshop on “How to communicate more effectively with Brides via email” was worth so much.

    If you ever have the opportunity to hear Alan speak, do it, you’ll be happy you did.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brenda. It was great having you at the conference. I’m so glad you connected with that topic, it’s so timely.

  • Heidi says:

    I recently attended Alan’s Wedding Industry Leaders Conference in Chicago and have read his book: If your website was an employee, would you fire it? Both are full of valuable information that will help you grow your business! Alan is inspirational and dedicated to helping other people. Thanks, Alan. You are spectacular!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Heidi. It was great to have you and Sarah at the conference. I look forward to working with you more on the new website.

  • Janet says:

    I attended Alan’s conference this week and WOW what a great speaker! I have been to many conferences and have tried to grab insider tips on website design and useability. Alan was entertaining while explaining simple common sense tactics that we shop owners tend to over-look. It was refreshing to listen to someone with real ideas that can be implemented or correct easily. Thanks Alan!! I enjoyed the conference very much!

  • Rebecca says:

    We had the pleasure of listening to Alan Berg speak at our venue. It was one of the most beneficial conferences I have attended! I was able to take away a lot of helpful information that I can put to use to generate more business. Thanks!

      Thanks, Rebecca, it was great having Twin Lakes host us for the day. I’m looking forward to coming back in the Spring to see it in all its natural beauty.
