Speaking Testimonials

“From the moment I met Sandy, I felt like we had been friends for years.  I was blown away by his knowledge of the business of music, being a musician, working in all aspects of the entertainment world.

Thru his humble nature, it is easy to connect to his stories and history of working with the greats.  It is easy to see why he has been such a successful force both in music and in life.”

-Chad Jeffers/Guitarist – Carrie Underwood
“Sandy spent over an hour just communicating from the heart about the power of goals, having a dream and vision, staying positive through the tough times and more. All I kept thinking to myself was I wish my entire sales team could hear this. What's more is he is very relatable and very down to Earth. His message comes in the side door bypassing a lot of the common self defense mechanisms many sales pros have adopted hearing the same thing over and over. Sandy is a well balanced businessman with a heart of gold and life skills that are easily transferrable to the corporate and sales world.”
Thomas L. Yakopin ­ Chief Development Officer ­ American Benefit Insurance Co
"Sandy has the ability to draw from his rich life experiences, as a professional drummer and translate those into articulate presentations, that apply to everyone from college students to CEO’s.

I wanted to tell you how much I loved hearing you speak yesterday at Belmont's studios. Your stories are ones you would find in books and not many are lucky enough to be able to hear them first hand. I was so excited and glad that you spent so much time talking about positivity, intention, manifestation and the law of attraction because it's something that you don't hear nearly enough, but is (as you obviously know) the most important part of any path that someone chooses to take. 

I can't thank you enough for the time you gave us and for your incredible generosity and willingness to help. You are so special and I truly feel so fortunate to have crossed paths with you. 

Katie Buxton – Senior Music Business Major, Belmont University
