In the brief period I've been dealing with Tony, I've found him to becharismatic and inspiring. His enthusiasm and passion for achieving resultsis contagious! The value he has brought to my business is beyond any expectations I may have had."

Chris Karavasilis – Managing Director – Laser Electrical Penshurst

I worked for Tony Gattari at Achievers Group for several years as an Associate Advisor. Although he paid me for my time, it should have been me paying Tony for the business education I received whilst a member of the Achievers Group team. It is my privilege to tell people that Tony Gattari is the real deal, and is qualified to 'talk the talk' because he has 'walked the walk'. Tony is one of the most energetic men I have ever met, but the value he is able to bring to people and business is far greater than a mere motivational speech. He is able to equip business people with proven tools and strategies that can be applied immediately in their businesses from the sales team to the CEO. I am currently General Manager for @ The Hub Accommodation, a 156 room 2 building accommodation business in New Zealand. Since taking the position on 3 years ago, the business has seen an increase in profit by over 400%, while at the same time reducing operational expenditure. This has seen @ The Hub Accommodation achieve the highest occupancy for any similar accommodation provider in New Zealand. So while our competitors sit on 47% – 65% occupancy, we run at over 90% occupancy every year. I believe that I could never have achieve the success I currently enjoy in business without the time I spent learning from Tony Gattari. I can assure anyone thinking of doing business with Tony that from my own experience, what he can teach you not only works in theory, It works in practice, which ultimately = $$$'s."

Luke Sinclair – General Manager – The Hub Accommodation

Tony teaches... Choose your A class customers. So I did. I chose to stick with Tony. From that working relationship, we have now done many projects together. Working for & working with!

As a business educator he is second to none.
As a speaker, you will be hard pressed to find a more passionate and 'influential' speaker.
And as a guy – It is hard to find business people with as Strong a Moral and Integrity stand as Tony.

Basically I love him, he's a barrel of laughs PLUS he actually knows what he is talking about. I'm glad to Call Tony a mate."

Business Workshop Testimonials

Tony is highly experienced guy that delivers relevant and direct training and advice for today's increasingly challenging business environment. I am normally circumspect as to the lasting effect of external training or business coaching, but Tony has dispelled that in delivering energetic and practical sessions to a wide range of people in our company. I also like the fact that he can deliver effective advice on topics that range from the importance of a person's interpersonal skills to the no nonsense requirements of managing cash flow. I have no hesitation in recommending Tony and if you engage him, you will definitely get value for money.

John Slack Smith – Chief Operating Officer – Harvey Norman

I can not wait to have Tony in front of my guys again."

I have had more positive feedback concerning your sessions, than anything we have ever done in the past - which is a wonderful testament to the gifting and abilities the Lord has blessed you with.

His positive attitude gives the staff confidence that these changes work."

Richard Eastmead – Franchise Owner – The Good Guys Penrith

I saw Tony for the first time at our Australians subsidiaries national conference and was so impressed I booked him for our NZ conference.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tony to motivate and stimulate your sales team."

Michael Farrugia – Managing Director – Hafele N.Z. Ltd

Personally I think Tony Gattari needs to wear some kind of fluoro safety gear. His energy levels are just off the charts and somewhat unnatural. Tony is truly enthusiastic about business and people....and it rubs off when you meet him. The energy is transferred and you can't help but feel lit up. Now, energy itself is important, but Tony has some serious runs on the board with his wins in business. So you know that you are hearing words of wisdom earned through real life experience. It is also worth noting that Tony is not just someone with a pet theory. He is active in business - his ideas are tested against reality daily. If you get the chance to hear Tony speak or work with Tony - grab it!"

Stuart Gordon – Business Strategist – Fusion Strategy

Tony was employed by us to get a stronger bond with fellow workers, to bring together the Sales Team and the Administration Team. His style of delivery was fresh exciting and filled with energy. He is by far the best presenter that we have had."

John Watkins – Founder and CEO of Biocycle

The Harvey Norman computer store managers left Tony Gattari's presentation pumped! His raw enthusiasm and obvious credibility in the subject matter had made significant impact on their understanding of the profession they were in - SALES. There was no skepticism. There was no confusion. The simplicity in which Tony tackled the issue's of how to maximize each customers purchase potential meant all 183 managers had some tangible tools to take back to their businesses and drive their sales team's performance further. It was without doubt one of the more relevant presentations I've I heard on retail sales."

Matthew Semple – Franchisee – Harvey Norman Computer Store – Auburn

Tony certainly made his mark with the Noah Group, his hands on approach and down to earth strategies compelled us to increase and do more for our clients. Tony presented to every department and met them at their level, the impact and passion from our team has been fantastic. His direct approach, humour and professionalism had all of us completing his workbooks with enthusiasm. Tony challenged us in all areas of business from customer service to cash flow management, his direct approach created thought provoking teamwork with our staff that actually works! We have been greatly enriched and now all of us at the Noah Group have moved to new level of business, systems and customer service–thanks to Tony."

Brett Mark – Director – Noah Group

Tony Gattari is one of the most gifted and naturally engaging speakers I have encountered in all my years of running large businesses. As managing Director of a national Franchise Business, Core Training for new franchisees is extremely important to us, and finding someone with the right balance of experience, knowledge, personalism and relatability was extremely important, especially to the eventual success of our franchisees. We could not be happier with the sales and business training provided to our newest franchisees by Tony. They were not only informed and motivated but all made comment on the ability of Tony to relate to them on a their level. They left the training with a belief in themselves, thanks to Tony. Thanks so much, and we'll see you at Lindeman in a few months!"

Luke Neale – Save on Bills

Tony is a insightful and a gifted communicator. His thought provoking seminars are full of progressive ideas delivered in a very practical user-friendly manner. Tony is a true motivator who succeeds in getting people focused on what's important to succeed. The thing I like most of all is that he just doesn't talk about 'doing it' he has 'done it'."

Steve Lynch – Sky Partners

Tony and I met in Portugal and spent an intensive training week together. Tony is the most charismatic trainer that I have met, not an act he really knows his stuff - as he is also the most learned, and studious, continuously reading books, thirsty for more knowledge - that he can transfer like no other. If you get the chance to go to one of his seminars it will change your life."

Terence O'Mahony – Owner – Icon Business Solutions

Tony Gattari delivers the fundamentals of business success without distraction from a short-term motivational buzz. His passionate and down-to-earth presenting style inspires strategic planning to implement within the business over the coming months and years, setting him apart from the stereotypical 'motivators' who make you feel all-powerful at the time but convey no meaningful message or ideas to actual help grow your business. With a 'real world' approach and practical suggestions, his teachings are simple to translate into everyday practise."

Paul Line – General Manager – Telcoinabox

Tony Gattari is a passionate and experience speaker who has imparted life and insight into our franchise network.

Luke Neale – CoFounder – Save On Bills

I engaged Tony to speak at an industry conference as i have been listening to Tony speak on a business CD and he was very impressive with his thoughts. He engaged the audience very well with his true life stories about how he built Harvey Norman's computer division and how he helps over 100 businesses continue to succeed. I am listening to his business mastery CD series at the moment and his teaching's are very real and pertinent to every business."

Matthew Denehy – Founder – Eagle Insurance

The impact on staff was dramatic to say the least. Tony Gattari was invited to Speak to the staff at Harvey Norman Kawana Waters. The purpose of this was to refocus and adjust thinking of all staff. The workshop Tony used was The Winning Attitude. The impact on staff was dramatic to say the least. I have witnessed an immediate change in motivation, attitude and general improvement in performance. The impact of the messages Tony gave reached many in different ways. This has made my progress with the staff more efficient and effective, as their thinking has been cleared for new progress. Many staff asked to be put onto Tony's email so they can continue to be in touch with his ongoing messaging of development. The staff were very keen to know when we are having the next training workshop. Many thanks Tony for your positive injection. We all gained so much."

Linda Austin – Proprietor Computers and Communication – Harvey Norman Kawana Watersl

One member of staff has almost overnight started achieving 20 % gross profit and is looking for ways to take it to 21/22%." I can honestly say that 3 weeks down the track I still hear the staff commenting on how they have used the training information to resolve a situation or make a very profitable sale. One member of staff has almost overnight started achieving 20 % gross profit the last 3 weeks and is looking for ways to take it to 21-22%. We now know it's the little things that make a difference and your training helped us to see that sometimes we over look the little things in search of that bigger prize. To finish, a true story. We've all heard of those thank-you cards that we should send to important customers. We've all heard it but do we do it??? So I decided this time to actually try the thank you card idea. After one of my staff sold an $8000 Plasma TV I decided to send the card to the customer. About a week later the lady returned to the store and was that touched by the card she purchased a laptop from us with extras. We are now going on to produce our own thank you cards using a digital camera and a photo of all the staff which not only says thanks but advertises what you can do with digital imaging ...THE LITTLE THINGS!!!"

Simon Parnell – Store proprietor – Harvey Norman Innisfai

Just a brief note to say how much I enjoyed your presentation, and also your book and the CD. We have actually incorporated many of your themes into our Marketing Strategy which we had already been working on and they ALL fitted in very easily & were well received by the sales staff – and myself."

Tony Christian – Director & Chief Executive Australia – Herbert Insurance Group

When it comes to strategies for sales and marketing, Tony's insights are brilliant, and his energy is infectious!"

Heather Maloney – CEO – Contact Point IT Services Pty Ltd

I heard Tony speak at a conference on the weekend - OH WOW!!! So much enthusiasm, I was hooked from start to finish. His presentation style is "one of a kind" and he has the most amazing amount of energy, as well as an exceptional knowledge on sales and negotiation. His knowledge in this field is outstanding. Any time I get a chance to hear Tony speak again, I will be there, as I was able to implement so much into my business the next day. Thankyou for sharing your knowledge and humour Tony."

Samatha Riley – General Manager – Brunswick Seminars

We are continuing to work with Achievers Group because we get results. Having been involved in many skills training and sales training programs from the world renowned Fortune Group to Tony Robbins and the like; Achievers Group has got it right!
The content of the programs is so customer centric that I was able to measure immediate success in our environment. Being customer specific all the modules we have completed have motivated and invigorated our team simply because it's in their language and every one of the staff from the new recruit to the old hardened veterans related comfortably to Tony's message. We are continuing to work with Achievers Group because we get results. I would recommend the program to any business that is smart enough to get smarter!"

Paul Bernhardt – Proprietor Computers and Communication – Harvey Norman Balgowlah

The passion and enthusiasm of Tony towards his work rubs off on the audience. Harvey Norman Bundall have had two presentations from Tony and thoroughly enjoyed both. The passion and enthusiasm of Tony towards his work rubs off on the audience. Tony's down to earth and simple language approach enables his presentation to be easily understood and integrated into the work environment. After the presentations we saw a notable change in our staff toward the sales process and in their personal confidence. I recommend Tony to anyone looking for an energy boost for their staff and business."

Geoff van der Vegt – Proprietor Computers and Communication – Harvey Norman Bundall

I couldn't help but notice that this workshop is not for everyone, perhaps because not everyone is ready to change even if for the better. But if people are looking for the tools to quickly and considerably improve their game and to start working smarter rather then harder, they should definitely try this. And to those people that will, I say: beware, this course is not a miracle pill for all your problems, no course ever is, but it will teach you to keep your bearings and to gain the momentum when other fouler."

Oxana Brovchenko – Sales Executive – Focus Press Pty Ltd

Since Tony's training 2 weeks ago we have been able to increase our gross profit by an extra 2-3 % which is great and just proves the impact Tony's enthusiasm brings. Tony's sales training was great. I questioned all the staff the next morning as to their thoughts and they were all very impressed. He has so much energy and enthusiasm it certainly keeps them interested for the full time. All of my staff said they got a lot from his presentation and even some of the guys who thought they were pretty hot sales people got a lot from it. Even after the sales training was over all of the computer staff stayed back for about 1/2 hour just chatting and asking questions which Tony was more than happy to answer. Since Tony's training we have been able to increase our gross profit by an extra 2 - 3 % which is great and just proves the impact his enthusiasm brings. I will certainly have Tony back and I would recommend Tony to anyone who is considering getting him to do some training at their store."

Troy Thomas – Computer Proprietor – Domayne Liverpool

Tony's impact on our organisation has been astounding. It is with great delight that I recommend Mr Tony Gattari. Teen Challenge NSW operates a residential rehabilitation and training centre for men aged between 17 and 40 years old. These men have come from a variety of backgrounds but all share the common fight to overcome substance abuse and other addictive behaviours. Tony's impact on our organisation has been astounding. A very busy businessman, Tony finds the time to visit our Chester Hill campus regularly, imparting his knowledge from the corporate world. Our students value the time and effort that Tony extends to them. They enjoy his presentation style and the quality of the information presented to them. Tony has also helped our organisation obtain work experience placements with major retail companies for our completing students and actively assists with strategies and contacts that have aided our fund raising efforts. We anticipate phenomenal success for Tony and Achievers Group."

Zella Taylor – Staff – Residential Services, Teen Challenge NSW inc

Tony Gattari did an absolutely sensational keynote presentation on the importance of negotiation at the Business Blueprint conference last weekend. I had previously watched a video of Tony at a past conference and was excited to actually hear him speak live this time. I recommend Tony to anyone who can listen and learn from his expert knowledge and experience, regardless if you're in business or not. I was just amazed at the amount of quality content he shared with the audience and did it with an abundance of enthusiasm too. I sure look forward to reading and listening to a whole set of Tony's books and cds for my own homework in the next 90 days!!"

Frances Charisma Hyu – July 24, 2012

Tony is down to earth and people respond to that well. The staff was fascinated by the "real life" angle Tony uses. They thought it was honest and insightful. Some of it was back to basics- and that is good some times- you too easily loose sight of the basics! The Attitude seminar was by far the one with the most impact. Most of the staff that attended referred to it for several days after. Tony is down to earth and people respond to that well. The ability to tailor the programs slightly to hit some of my company's core issue is very attractive now, and in the future."

Tim Edwards – General Manager – Space Furniture

Dear Tony, many thanks for he planning day on Wednesday. You had a dramatic influence on the team and the planning process. We've opened them to what is possible!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tony Gattari is an outstanding sales, profit and business strategist. Tony's straight shooting approach gets results. From a recent dynamic advanced negotiation strategies presentation that Tony delivered I was able to take immediate action on it and implement one of the techniques in a vendor negotiation for a win/win and ultimately a great result for my client. My dealings with Tony have been nothing but positive with his skills both as a presenter and a business consultant."

Greg Cassar – Owner – InternetMarketingDoneForYou.com

Tony Gattari is one inspirational speaker...he is so passionate in what he has to say. I have been privileged to see Tony speak on two occasions...his presentations are highly professional and relevant to his audience...he gets10/10 from me!"

Randall Smith – Director – Churchill Education

Tony was incredible. His ideas and strategies on how to carry out 'Effective Sales Negotiations' at a high level came with very clear directives and was born from a wealth of experience in his industry. It was very clear to all that he was a leader in his field and I look forward to working with him again in the near future."

Michael D Russo – TV Host at Bankruptcy Rocks TV

The guys here are unanimous in their praise for the workshop. They found it relevant; inspiring; accessible; and fun.

I look forward to seeing very tangible results flowing through!"

Instant and measurable results were seen from the last seminar."

Stephen Hunter – Outbound Wine Advisor – The Wine Society

Many thanks for your very incisive presentation."

Sharon Dew – Marketing Manager – Crop Care Australasia

We engaged Tony to present a workshop for local business owners. He presented exceptionally high quality material strongly influencing people to take decisive steps forward in their businesses. Although the workshop left us all highly motivated, it's content was practical, working on the business leader AND their business. The prevailing thought people expressed was a disappointment for friends in business who couldn't make it to the workshop, because they missed out on some rare GOLD. Tony has the runs on the board, the content that works, and the style that activates people – I strongly recommend connecting with him at any opportunity."

Luke Alcock

Like many people Tony Gattari is tired of motivational speakers. He calls himself an Activator - giving business people tools so that they can activate what is already inside themselves to be an amazing business owner. Tony is a generous person, generous of himself, his resources and his knowledge. If you need a person who will activate what you know is inside you to achieve more then I would certainly recommend booking Tony."

Tania Goodacre

My wife Angela and I had the pleasure of having Tony train us for Save On Bills at our introductory training session for the franchisees. Tony worked with us on Sales skills and business goal setting and his knowledge of the subject matter was brilliant. Tony's enthusiasm and passion was extremely inspiring and it certainly was easily the highlight of our training. Ang and I both thoroughly enjoyed the presentations and learned a great deal from Tony."

Shane Green

Tony was amazing! He really motivated the conference!!! The best thing about Tony was that he took the time to find out about our business culture before he delivered his presentation. It was more than a sugar fix! This was the first conference we have had where our delegates had an actual action plan to work off. The information that he shared was relevant, direct, educational and very inspirational. Tony presentations are 'down to earth', humorous and very high impact. His presentation will be one that our franchise owners will continue to talk about for years to come. Thanks again Tony.... just brilliant. :)"

Public Workshop Testimonials

Ignite 2-Day Workshop Video testimonials from our 2008 event.

I just attended the 2 day 2012 Ignite Program with Tony and his team from Achievers Group. Its been one of the best 2 day events I've ever attended. (and I've been to many around the world). The level of excitement, humour, enthusiasm, knowledge, and practical application provided by the team (Tony, Ingrid, Peter, Chris, Dan and Stuart ) in the areas of Marketing, Sales, Branding, Leadership, Negotiation and Internet optimisation was awesome. Am now a huge fan and will be looking to get these guys involved in my next business role which has a number of significant local and overseas growth related needs. Still buzzing guys!"

John Walker – Project Manager – National Australia Bank

Ten minutes was all it took, and our business was turned upside down!

Have you ever had a light bulb moment? We both did when we first met Tony Gattari. We thought we were doing everything right in our business, but oh how wrong we were!

We had no idea there were so many ways to improve our business. Tony has exposed us to everything from the mindset of a successfull business owner, right through to effective marketing (not advertising)strategies, and we love his upfront advice, like 'If a horse is dead, dismount!'

And then we read his book!

'Business Success' is now our business bible. You don't just read this book, you actually interact with it! Every chapter is full of encouraging exercises designed to help you learn, grow and define your business more clearly. It encourages us to ask the right questions and take the right actions, helping us grow our business.

Tony, through his wisdom and teachings, has helped us define an exciting vision for our business. We're both looking forward to working closely with Tony to help build our business further!"

Warren & Olga

I have been and still are dealing with Tony and understand why he is such a success in business today and has been for so long!

Jody Milward – Director – Private Investigator – National Recovery Office Australia

The first time I heard Tony Gattari speak was at the "morning retail business breakfast on driving sales through outstanding marketing and services" at Cairns. My reason for attending the talk was primarily for networking, I received more than I expected. Tony insight into the business world echoed throughout the speech, the energy, involvement of the audience, entertaining no doubt mesmerised the audience, and the tip for businesses helped me analyse what was working in the business and what was not. In the end attending the talk was knowledgeable, entertaining, and a lot to take home and think about."

Komal Bandi – Managing Director – PI Data Consulting

Tony is a man after my own heart. Having heard Tony speak on several occasions it is so refreshing to find someone of his calibre, having operated at the top end of business, who exalts the concepts of authenticity, integrity and commitment, concepts sadly so absent in business today. As a bonus, he is also incredibly entertaining and deeply passionate about helping people build better businesses and lives."

Andrew Abel – Managing Director – Invented Future

Tony is a seriously talented presenter. He is extremely generous with his time and ideas and has a knack of motivating people to the next level."

David Young – Owner – Glenavon Finance

Tony's presentation to our business network group was absolutely dynamic.

Bill Parker – Director – Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce

I have attended your trainings in Port Macquarie on two occasions and I have put into practice your advice and am pleased to tell you I have won a position as Business Manager for the 5 Amcal stores in Coffs Harbour. Thank you for the hand up."

Coralie Weekes – Retail Manager – Settlement City Amcal Pharmacy

Thanks Tony for your inspiring words at the Darwin Laser Conference. As usual your talks are great, I'm glad my wife was there this time as I kept telling her how good you were and now she got to witness first hand what I have been telling her. I wish I had you in my office every week!"

Joe Pasqualini – Director – Laser Electrical Wellington Point

I had the enormous pleasure of seeing Tony in action during a conference in Thailand in April 2011. I have been involved in the training industry for many years and can honestly say that presenters as compelling, professional and as passionate as Tony are few and far between. The audience were inspired and the feedback after his session was first class. I would wholeheartedly recommend Tony to any company looking for real value and superb delivery of great content."

James Hargreaves – Director – The Training Practice

I recently attended your course in Bundy and have been doing some work at home on increasing the web presence of our Paintball business Jack Splat. We already had a website and FB Page but that was about it. Without engaging any professional help at this stage I have taken on some of the tips that you shared on internet marketing. I've started a Blog, registered for Google Places, registered with Twitter, used Tubemogal to share some clips (all part of my action plan from the day). We were always up the top when you searched Paintball Bundaberg or Jack Splat Paintball, HOWEVER, we are now on the first page when you just search Paintball, all be it down the bottom, but we are getting there. I was thrilled. I just wanted to say a big thank you, though my head was spinning when I left, I found the information very practical with so much of it being able to be put into place immediately. My husband and I are in the start up stage of opening a new Cafe in Bundaberg and I am very much looking forward to being able to put what you shared into place."

Tracey McPhee

Tony is one of those rare genuine and brilliant business thinkers that rises above all the other business "gurus". He is truly inspirational and someone who has earned his wisdom by not being afraid to roll up his sleeves and do the hard yards. He was mesmerising in the recent Fiji seminar that I attended where he shared his cutting-edge business strategies. Tony is a legend."

Ari Galper – Unlock The Game – #1 Trust-Based Sales Expert – Founder

His speech was not only extremely informative but also well engineered towards his audience (other retailers). Tony was one of the best (if not the best) speakers I have ever had the pleasure of listening too, I still listen to his CD to this day and take a lot from it."

Allister Benson – Commercial Business manager – Noel Leeming

I have had the opportunity now on 3 separate occasions to hear Tony Gattari speak and well, each time he has delivered the goods. You see the guy has boundless amounts of energy and you can't help paying attention because it's clear he is passionate about his message. I know you're probably thinking how different can he be from other speakers on the circuit... my response... you can't afford not to find out. At a recent 3 day conference in Fiji I had my husband in the room for the first time and of all the speakers that left an impression it was Mr Gattari, why you might be thinking, because Tony doesn't just have the energy or the passion or the experience he has an innate style of delivery. It's like he can unpack what most other speakers make complicated in a way that actually makes sense. There's one concept he shared on how to recognise customer types and I have to tell you since he gifted it I can now easily work out the best strategy to connect with the customer and build trust in half the time it would traditionally take. Tony thank you for the generosity of sharing your hard earned experience. You have made the game of sales fun!!"

Angelina Cirelli-Salomone – Owner – Unique Business advantage

Maybe it's because he is Italian that he is so personable - but all I know is that I was totally engaged from the beginning to the end of Tony Gattari's presentation. Tony's vulnerability in sharing 'how it really was and is now' in his own life as a top flight business executive caused me to truly examine my own motivation. I readily took on board his wisdom around the true meaning of success in all areas of my life. Tony is very funny, truly provocative and a master of the stage."

Yvonne Godfrey – Miomo – Creator and Director

I have attended 4 of the seminars which Tony has be a presenter and or co-speaker at. Not only is he high energy, but he is an expert - he has walked the walk and can talk the talk in terms that are easy to grasp and later apply in business. I highly recommend Tony, and recommend you take your team with you. You don't want to miss a thing!"

Louise Beaumont – Sales Manager – Creative House Publications

Tony spoke at a conference in Canberra and his input has greatly influenced my own business ideas. With a very impressive track record that speaks for itself, he communicated some of the concepts and mindsets that have lead to his success. He does not sell fad products but is a trainer, more interested in making you a successful business owner or franchiser or whatever it is you are pursuing. He's a very humble but confident and honest about his mistakes and weaknesses. And he was happy to talk to me personally for a good amount of time too which I really appreciated. I can be quite skeptical of people claiming to know about success in business but my notebook is full of Tony Gattari teaching. As someone who is working on an idea with the intention of implementing it as a real and viable business, I will continue to seek Tony's influence in which ever mediums available to me."

Aaron O'Neill – Java Web Application Developer and Adobe SmartForms Specialist

I have heard Tony speak about business on 2 separate occasions and have to admit that the man is exceptional. He can take the most complex business concepts and verbalize them in a way that anyone can understand, appreciate and appeal to. Not only that, he is extremely generous with his knowledge and personal resources. You will get REAL PRACTICAL tips from him, whether you are a CEO, entrepreneur or a salesperson just starting out, he is the one business speakers you just MUST LISTEN TO. (And I've heard a fair few!)"

Dr Avnesh Ratnanesan (Avi) – Director and Executive Producer – Araya Pictures

I have seen Tony speak a number of times and have come to know his work well over the past year or so. Tony is an inspiration to those businesses people (like myself) who need effective sales & marketing strategies made easy (and fun!). His approach is no nonsense and his content is rich. It's no wonder he has achieved so much with the highly reputable companies he works with & consults to. As a speaker myself, I will always analyze speakers in terms of their delivery, message and authenticity - and Tony ranks highly on all accounts. He is real, dynamic & most importantly - delivers high value content. Go you good thing!"

Jason Jelicich – Barmetrix Training

Tony Gattari is a dynamic, compelling presenter with a wealth of practical information around many facet's of business. His humorous story's around a diversity of business information is delivered in a memorable way that creates a shift in thinking and more importantly the follow through! I would recommend him to any business event or program big or small."

Libby Dedman – Owner – Just Liberated Hairdressing Salons, Liberated Business and Liberated Life Conferences

Over the years I have seen many speakers and educators on stage presenting their expertise, but not many can engage the audience like Tony does. I've had the pleasure of seeing a number of his presentations and each time he thoroughly entertains while still getting his valuable message across. I would recommend Tony as a speaker to anyone looking for laughs and great stories that educate and inspire you."

Carl Taylor

Tony brings with him the much needed pragmatic, practical hands on experience gained in achieving outstanding results in business to the boardrooms and conference platforms. His style is engaging, challenging and entertaining. His life is the testimony to his teachings. It's impossible to not be challenged and inspired!"

Sandie Leong – Chronic Pain Clinic

I have had the pleasure of hearing Tony speak on 4 occasions now and he is just Brilliant! The way he delivers business principles in a practical manner using stories and analogies makes things so understandable. He can take a complex topic like Business Finance and deliver it in such a way that any one can understand, which is an amazing skill. He delivers his presentations with such conviction, passion and enthusiasm that the audience is completely engaged."

Brendon Granger – Owner – Business Development Asia Pacific

I have seen Tony give talks on 3 occasions, his engaging and amusing stories help retain the core message of his talk. Tony has range of business knowledge and experience that he freely shares."

Lisa Ginns

Tony is absolutely amazing at conveying the core principles that really make a business tick and the makeup of a true leader in business. I have been at 2 events where Tony has presented and he is always spot on and an inspiration. I have no hesitation in recommending Tony as an expert in business growth strategies."

Margaret Hamar – Professional Investor – Property Investing Network

Tony is the real thing. He engaged our employees at all levels and imparted a wealth of business knowledge and customer insights in a manner that was down to earth and inclusive. Tony's business experience, passion for people, his ability to influence and the very positive feedback received from attendees made him the right choice for our business seminar. Great stuff."

Greg Staveley – Manager – Systems and Capability Sydney Water

When we came to the decision to hire Tony Gattari, we had already programmed an entire 3 day conference of speakers and sequences. Our agenda was set to take each of the delegates into a new space in their minds and businesses. It was integral to programming, that we close this huge event with a big hitter!. We needed to engage someone who would challenge, disturb and activate the audience of business owners and decision makers, cut through their tiredness in the final session and take the whole show out with a bang. It was easy to position Tony into this role. Our prebrief by phone was almost de ja vu, as if Tony had been a fly on the wall in our 9months of prior planning meetings. He just got it, understood what we were asking of him and set about to deliver that and then some! Needless to say on the day Tony delivered over and above the call. What a great way to wrap an event. loved it! We would happily recommend Tony Gattari to any event that requires a well delivered, challenging, motivating, business management and sales & marketing Guru. We will use Tony again and again."

Garth Taylor – Owner and Founder – One Event Pty Ltd

If the difference between good and great is in the "doing" - Then Tony is your man. Highly adaptive to any work group, insightful and entertaining. The thing that amazes me is the amount of cut through and recall Tony can get!"

Tim Edwards – Chief Operating Officer – Noel Leeming Group

I heard Tony speak at an event in Sydney the other week and was blown away. As a fellow speaker it really takes a lot to impress me. Tony is the full package. He engages, informs, entertains and gives you fantastic insights and practical ideas to be more successful in business and life. Bravo, you are a great speaker, excellent storyteller and a real pro."

Charles Marcus – Best Selling Author – Speaker and Strategist

I first came across Tony on YouTube after a close friend had recommended him, after watching a few of his youtube videos I bought all of his DVD's, books and Audio's on business and on sales. I found his down to earth information on Business was great. You could feel that he knew his subject and most of all he was a seasoned business owner with a wealth of experience and knowledge. I then attended 2 of his seminars and all I can say is WOW, I took a few of my employees and a franchisee and the results of his thinking on the subject of sales and customer personalities and behaviours allowed the employees and franchisee to have a different view point of customers. Both the employees and franchisee got so much value from hearing Tony speak. How did I know they got value, they applied what they learned as soon as they got back to the service centres. That month and every month after wards the stats have gone through the roof and have grown every month since attending Tony's seminar. The Dapto Service Centre has doubled its Gross Profit since the employees attended the seminar. Tony will be brought in on all of our future franchisee and employee training's in the future. I myself have attended many sales seminars from the likes of Blair Singer, Zig Ziggler to Brian Tracy my own car has been a university on wheels for 23 years and for when you have been in the presence of these great sales teachers, I defiantly had a benchmark to place Tony and out of all of them I would rank Tony higher then all of them and I think it is down to the fact he has tested, tested and tested and the wealth of knowledge he has is unbelievable. He comes from the viewpoint of being a business owner himself. I would highly recommend Tony as a World Class Speaker, Trainer and seminar holder. Get your employees to Tony ASAP and watch the stats. Like mine they will double in short a time period. John Burns CEO and Founder of Computer Support Partners and yes you are quite welcomed to ring me on my mobile 0411604490 if needing a verbal testimonial."

John Burns – CEO and Founder – Computer Support Partners

I listen and re-listen to what Tony says about business and marketing for three reasons: 1. I don't need a translator to interpret what he's saying, 2. His advice is deeply practical and 3. (The cherry on top)...he's entertaining."

Antoni Lee – Owner and Managing Director – Rhetorica

Tony was a Keynote speaker at our Cre8 Business Conference and was highly values by our attendees. He brought passion, vision and insights to marketing based on sound business principles. Tony has flair that set's him apart with presentations based on real stories and extensive experience. I highly commend Tony as a leading-edge keynote speaker and/or workshop presenter."

Peter Kentley – Owner – AMC

Excellent value for money. The program is well-structured and contains a wealth of technical detail along with practical business marketing advice that cuts through the social media hype. I left with a clear sense of which screws to turn and which to leave alone. If you want clarity about how social media can help your business this course is for you."

Antoni Lee – Managing Director – Rhetorica

The seminar made complicated IT stuff so clear and now I have a plan to move our website to the next level."

Vanessa Hutchins – Website Manager – Ken Duncan Panographs

After a session to educate myself about websites from Nick & Tony I will now change my marketing strategy to included an insane website. If you are looking to change how you market your business you need to do this course."

Doug Webber – Director – Webber Retravision

I recently attended a presentation Tony Gattari gave as part of the NSW Governments 'Business Master Class' program. Focused, Engaging and at times Confronting! Tony passionately delivered the fundamentals of business. Not your typical talk fest! Having held senior roles within Retail & Supply Chain, I'd previously learnt a number of these skills. It's surprising though (and a little embarrassing) that I'd actually stopped practicing some of these skills. Not so much by choice but by distraction... I recommend Tony Gattari as a great kick start for even the most seasoned professional!"

Dean Walker – Director – AxePax... Packaging

Tony Gattari is an energetic, engaging and thought provoking speaker who oozes credibility. He captures and holds your attention with his unique, insightful and relevant stories mixed with plenty of humor. As a professional speaker, trainer and coach I've seen many local and international business speakers and Tony Gattari is a speaker who is definitely worth catching."

Jeremy Hope – Big Cheese – Outsource My Marketing

I was reluctant to attend your workshop as I have not understood the Internet in previous seminars I have attended. But today you've helped me know how to generate leads and feeling confident about actioning your content."

Odette Smith – 2 Enlighten

Congratulations on an excellent Master class Program. Today's presentation by Tony Gattari was fantastic, the spreadsheets and checklists he supplied were alone worth the cost of the entire master class program. Tony was great, his advice was down to earth and his presentation entertaining and informative. He poked and prodded everyone in the right places. I look forward to reading his books and listening to the tapes. I am sure he will keep me motivated and at the top of my game for months to come. I look forward to the next session - but Tony could be a hard act to follow!"

His message is one that all small business operators can relate & implement. A real pleasure to work with a person that i am happy to call a friend."

David Baumgarten

I highly recommend attending Tony's seminars. Tony's seminar on internet market was fantastic. I could tell that all the people who attended enjoyed themselves and learnt plenty, with people at this seminar ranging from not really knowing what face book was, to people who felt they were already experts on the topic. Tony is a great communicator and has taken the time to learn what the 'must know' strategies for business owners are. His proven track record allows me to recommend friends to connect with him and attending his events - he knows what he is talking about and delivers the goods."

Adrian Pinkewich

Tony is a very knowledgeable, energetic and passionate speaker. I particularly appreciated his ability to demystify complex concepts, and lay out a clear path for us to improve our business. Based on his insights, we've already changed the way we engage with customers for the better."

Craig Rispin – CSP – Futurist - FutureTrendsGroup.com

When you combine the passion of an Italian with the cheeky confidence of an Australian, you get Tony Gattari. Hang onto your seat ladies and gentlemen, this guy is not only entertaining and energetic, but he knows his subject inside out. The content he delivers is the real deal, (as a business coach myself, I know) and Tony Gattari is the real deal. He doesn't just talk it, he walks it."

Don Butler – Casdon Business Solutions – ActionCoach Business Coach

I run a registered training organisation providing nationally accredited courses across a range of industry areas. Tony provided an awesome, innovative and motivational presentation during a business blueprint conference in Sydney on 17th April 2010. His ability to hold the attention of the audience with expert knowledge in the area of marketing and selling is second to none. Tony uses simple language and fantastic metaphors to deliver complex concepts so the information is easily absorbed. I have personally gained a much superior insight into the world of selling and marketing as a direct result of Tony's presentation and would highly recommend."

Marc Kalme – CEO – Tactical Training Australia

Thanks Tony for your enthusiastic support and input into our Organisation - I can assure you it is greatly, greatly appreciated by all of us.

Bless you both."

Sarah Brown – PA to Pam Borrow – Dean – School of Creative Arts

I recently attended the first in a series of presentations from Tony Gattari under the "Firstclass banner. This event was truly life changing for me. Tony's presentation was both inspirational and educational. Tony was able to clearly encapsulate and present his secrets of success, based on his many years of outstanding experience. He showed us that the secrets to success are not rocket science, but that everyone of us has the ability to unlock the keys for their own success. By walking step by step through each of his "19 things that matter most", Tony has provided the foundation and inspiration for each of us to achieve our own potential. I unreservedly endures Tony's workshops for anyone who is seeking to fulfill their maximum potential."

Todd Dewey – MBA Director – Analysis Pty Ltd

Tony is an outstanding communicator on a subject that is so relevant to the business community : leadership. Building and maintaining a successful team requires a visionary leader with insight of the dynamics of human relationships. Tony provided this insight with his wide experience in management and proven leadership skills. An excellent presentation of great value."

Arul Niles – Commercial Law Division – Grech Partners Solicitors

Tony Gattari is an inspirational trainer and motivational keynote speaker. Not only is he entertaining but is also able to capture the audience's attention and take them on a journey with his great story telling skills in a down to earth Australian style. He provides attendees with practical sales and marketing strategies and creative ideas that he has learned over the years by doing them himself. He is passionate about helping businesses be successful."

Michael Topper – Genesys Wealth Advisers

First Class business training has made an incredible difference both for me personally and for my business. If I could summarise into a brief statement, I would say that the knowledge I have received from First Class presenters Tony Gattari and Garry Reardon have empowered me to manage my business with a far greater level of confidence, enthusiasm and vision. This has resulted in my turnover increasing by around 50% in five months. While I hear others complain that business is slow and difficult, my business is consistently growing and has a great future. I will continue to attend First Class even after I've completed the course, as the monthly meetings keep me focused and inspired. The small attendance fee for me is a great investment."

Brett Lindner – Manager – Precision Mobile Automotive Repairs

Your talk last night in the Wesley auditorium was superb. My partner Jennifer and I have attended a lot of training seminars over the last 3 years with Tony Robbins, Jay Abraham, Brian Tracy, Deepak Chopra, Chris Howard more. And listening to you talk last night was refreshing and informative. You have given us new motivation and invigoration to move forward in our business."

It is my intent to have Tony speak again at one of our conferences and I can not recommend him highly enough. Everyone that was in attendance has given great feedback and wish they had more time with him."

James Hannan – www.workfromhomeaustralia.com

Before having the privilege of listening to one of Tony's amazing motivational speeches I thought I knew a lot about business and being motivated. I was wrong, within a moment of Tony standing in front of me my heart and mind opened to a level I didn't know was possible. It was so long ago but what is amazing about Tony's work is, of all the seminars I have been to since then, Tony's is the only one I can remember, the only seminar that really did impact my life. There isn't a week that goes by that Mr Gattari doesn't enter my head and fix a problem without him even knowing it. Speak to this man and your life and business will change! A man of knowledge, motivation, inspiration and integrity."

Aziz Elali Director – Pizzarazzi Franchise owner – Save On Bills Hoba

He gets you thinking outside the square and empowers and motivates you to do business at a whole new level."

We were greatly honoured in having the privilege of Tony Gattari speak at our recent Business Leaders Breakfast. His approach was extremely personal and inviting and his contemporary and fresh presentation gave powerful impartation to our group. His passion in bringing encouragement to business leaders and professionals was very engaging and most evident to all. I was most impressed by his genuine desire to see people increase and be successful in every aspect of their lives. The follow-up we have received from Tony has also been amazing. Getting connected to Achievers Group has been a very worthwhile and pleasurable experience. I know those from our organization feel that not only have we gained a mentor but also a friend. The sincerity and generosity of Tony Gattari and Achievers Group must be experienced to be appreciated. I am delighted to give the highest recommendation to any individual, business or organization, if you are looking to increase your operation, get in touch with Tony Gattari at Achievers Group.

On the recommendation of a business colleague I travelled interstate to Sydney to attend Tony's Internet Marketing Mastery workshop with Nick Jerrat. My expectations weren't that high as I had attended "Seminars" of this type many times and walked away with a lot of froth and bubbles and no substance. This is NOT the case with Tony's workshops. Substance, Substance, Substance. I've come away from his workshop with real life business applications that work. As a result of attending this seminar I will be giving even more value to my clients and that keeps us ahead of our competitors. My only disappointment was that I had the chance to attend another of Tony's Business seminars a few weeks earlier and didn't take advantage of that opportunity. If you get the chance to involve Tony in the future of your business don't pass it up, I know I wont."

Noel Sorensen – Principal – Adz Power Agencies

During my professional & personal life over the years, I have been fortunate enough to attend a large number of seminars and be trained and informed by many National & International sales, marketing & business professionals and experts. I must say that amongst all of those I've heard, Tony's Sales & Marketing messages and energetic delivery stand out as being amongst the most engaging, relevant, current and immediately practical sessions I have attended. He packs an enormous amount of information into bite sized pieces that can be used piecemeal or as a total system, to make an enormous difference to business direction & practices. He has recently helped clarify what the focus of my marketing messages needs to on to meet the needs of the current fickle generation. Thanks Tony, keep on spreading the word worldwide!"

Jo Hanlan

Tony shared some valuable insights in the world of marketing in today's economic climate. His articulate and entertaining style had the audience captured from start to finish. Everyone in the room will no doubt have walked away with some amazing information and useful tips to ensure that their own marketing strategy gets the boost it needs to gain an edge in the marketplace."

John Nawotka

I've attended a number of Tony's seminars and likewise seen some of his presentations at our local Chamber of Commerce. I cannot speak more highly about his easy going nature, hands on approach to business marketing and development. His method of delivery is funny, exciting and personable; but jam packed with great ideas to help grow a business. I know it certainly has helped my business. I am still working through the mountains of notes supplied to us from the last seminar. I look forward to attending another seminar marked on my calendar this year."

Daniel Doherty

I was present at the Ebay Sales Summit that you presented at yesterday. I am sorry I(wantdd to thank you in person yesterday – but missed you. I was up the back madly scribbling down what you had to say. I knew that your words would continue to inspire me – and being a 'visual' person – wanted them where I could refer to them easily. It is 5am the day after your presentation. I couldn't sleep last night. What you had to say hit the nail on the head in so many respects."

Tony Nolon

Being involved in the First Class workshop was like drinking really really good red wine. It was business wisdom distilled and bottled then generously poured out. Don't doubt the certain impact of your blend of knowledge made so potent by your very real experience. I'm looking forward to finishing the bottle over the series but A can!already see you have a cellar full and the best is yet to come!"

Lisa Sloan

Tony and Garry have shown the business wisdom to show and explore business shortfalls and how to overcome them in such a simple manner. They should be congratulated on what they have done for others."

Gavin Hawke

I love the energy and passion that you have, so much that I'm now looking at setting up my own website with blogs, articles, and personal coaching and other things! Sooner rather than later in order to get results happening."

Mark Chan

I sensed an exceptional quality in Tony- a passion, drive and focus packaged in authenticity- a quality I long for but have struggled to find in business circles. I thoroughly enjoyed Tony's presentation."

Rebecca Lloyd

I worked with Tony for a couple of years during my time at Harvey Norman and have kept in contact as we have both progressed during our careers. Much of my success today I can attribute to Tony's guidance, passion and energy. Always one to break things down into their simplest forms, focus on what needs to be done to achieve results and have the energy to follow things through. Tony's success still has its mark on the Australian industry today with Harvey Norman still a dominant player in the consumer electronics marketplace. I have been lucky enough to be involved with or work with other retailers who even today still strive to achieve what Harvey Norman has done. Tony has taken the learnings gained from his grass roots heritage, corporate career history and family life to deliver a unique view on business and life. His books, positive rants, teachings & speaking engagements deliver what is missing from a number of 'normal' presenters - true passion, energy, enjoyment and a practicality that everyone can relate to, whether teenager working out their life path or corporate high flyer looking for new inspiration."

Press Testimonials

For his first big test, Gattari took the reins at Harvey's computer division at his Harvey Norman stores. It was the success of this division that transformed Harvey Norman from a furniture seller to a retail powerhouse..."

The Daily Telegraph

After a year he glimpsed the wisdom that had eluded him before the fall, including the realisation that a thing he does best is help others make money. This inspired him to start Achievers Group, an organisation he runs with a who's who of Australian business champions and has helped thousands of companies and professional people understand and realise their potential. Drawing from those experiences, Gattari wrote a few books of his own, including Marketing Success and Business Success and produced a four-disc DVD series. It made Gattari a brand in his own right, tutoring businesses on how to do better."

David Binning – Editor – Computer Reseller News July 2011

I've had the pleasure of doing business with Tony both recently in his capacity of CEO at Achievers Group, and in the past during his tenure with Harvey Norman. Tony is one of the most progressive and energetic business chiefs I know. His insight, smarts and ability to transform a team is of the highest calibre and his unique take on the world of selling and leadership have earned him a place in Australian sales culture that's hard to beat."

Brad Monaghan – Editor – Sales Professional Magazine

There's no doubt that Gattari, now chief energy officer and founder of the Achievers Group, is a colourful character and an emphatic speaker. With quotable phrases and positive maxims slipped into every sentence, he's in demand as a speaker and trainer in sales and business strategy. It's clear he is comfortable communicating his ideas, and, not surprisingly, the sales world is lining up to hear them."

Sales Professional Magazine – September 2010

Tony Gattari is in danger of becoming a legend in Australian computer retailing. He first hove into public view as the fast-talking sales hurricane behind Harvey Norman's computer superstores, moved onto an ill-fated computer e-tailing venture and somehow managed to keep his investors on deck long enough to reinvent the company as an e-commerce engine for retailers wanting to sell their wares over the Internet."

The Sydney Morning Herald

Tony Gattari, who flourished as a computer retailer in the 1990's, but failed as an online entrepreneur, has resurfaced as a motivational speaker and business adviser. He said his internet misfortune made him better placed to give advice. Computers made up just 5 per cent of Harvey Norman sales when Mr. Gattari joined in 1991. When he stepped down nine years later, the division was turning over $565 million a year, or 30 per cent of the franchise's total sale."

The Australian Financial Review

For his first big test, Gattari took the reins at Harvey's computer division at his Harvey Norman stores. It was the success of this division that transformed Harvey Norman from a furniture seller to a retail powerhouse..."

The Daily Telegraph

Former Australian computer supersalesman, Tony Gattari, has re-emerged as a motivational speaker and business adviser. Under Gattari's stewardship in the 1990s, the computer division of aggressive Australian retail chain, Harvey Norman, grew from five per cent of group sales to 30 per cent."

The Australian Financial Review – ABIX via COMTEX

Straightforward, passionate, optimistic and an enthuser on a grand scale. Tony Gattari, the young salesman credited with driving the Harvey Norman Group to dominance in computer sales, typifies the Harvey Norman style: straightforward, passionate, optimistic and an enthuser on a grand scale."

Hi Tony - The audio was excellent - it was done in a way that was entertaining and memorable both in the technique and the content.

Thanks for sharing it."

Kelly Koselek – Bosely Real Estate

Credibility and enthusiasm are two of the key components to success. They are also something that Tony Gattari has in truckloads.
Tony has worked with Beaumont Tiles to help inspire and educate our managers and Franchisees and we keep inviting him back! ... so something must be working! I love the great mix Tony achieves between everyday practicalities of face to face customer contact with getting the philosophy right. I strongly recommend Tony's CDs and books for anyone who wants to capture or recapture an exciting vision for their business."

Bob Beaumont – MD of Beaumont Tiles – AUSTRALIA'S FAVOURITE PLACE TO BUY TILES.

Invisible Artists is only 6 months young and even in the middle of a global recession, we are currently growing at 1 employee per month. Last year I started reading dozens of "how-to start your own business" books never to make it past the first few pages. Some made me question whether I could really do it.

Luckily I found Tony's 'Business Success' and after a few days had a good understanding and a true confidence to start my own business. Having been drawn towards Tony's honest approach and likeable character, I look forward to each new piece of content he creates."

Dan Day – Owner of Invisible artists

Tony, I started listening to your CD's, and recording them on my IPOD so I listen to them on my long trip overseas. That is my deposit to gain knowledge. Tony, you are a gifted speaker, you don't try, the knowledge you have, the experiences, & thoughts flow naturally. YOU ARE A NATURAL."

Bill Vartanian – Export Sales Manager – Australasian PC Distributors

Amazing video. Actually gave me a idea for one of the books in my series. I am a strong believer in knowing what is important in your life. I am divorced. My husband was a "worker".

No amount of money is worth losing the important things in your life. Tony is a very smart man."

As a long time salesperson & sales manager both for other's businesses & now my own, your comments are pertinent, great reminders & oh so logical. I love the pictures you have built in my head, as did your interviewer from the sounds of his mirth, As a very visual person and one brought up on farms in the past, I will carry that "6 uddered cow" in my head as a much more interesting reminder of the basics as I move down the path of building & sustaining my business. Thanks for sharing in a humorous way."

Jo Hanlon

The Marketing Success book is the best book I have read, it was exciting as a crime thriller. I could not put it down."
