Jacco is one of the few people who is able to extend his enthusiasm to his team with a training/coaching programs that consists of a monthly Book Club, Sales Excellence training, and Story Telling exercises.

Award winning Author and Sales Coach "Jacco is a star. As President of BT Conferencing I’ve had many ‘sales professionals’ work with my organization but no one as masterfully as Jacco. He’s very bright, always thoughtful and consistently bringing value every step of the way.
It is hard not to be engaged or energized when around Jacco. I love how he can roll up his sleeves with the team and then help a CEO understand how he is going to change his business. Jacco brings a great understanding of his market; he’s professional, creative, motivational, respected, sincere, committed, and a hard worker." Jack Blaeser
