Sean Banfill

I hope your travels home weren’t to painful.  I wanted to thank you again for a very impactful presentation. You hit a lot of hot spots with me, professionally but more importantly personally. I’ve been in medical sales for nearly 15 years and have had countless speakers come to meetings and attempt to make an impact on the audience. Unfortunately most of them fail to make that impact.  You made that impact on me.  I understand why Jason chose you to talk to us. He’s one of the main reasons I work for this company and I respect him immensely he is a fabulous leader. He is a text book example of a great leader. Sam was my manager for 2 years and is the best boss I’ve ever had.  I learned a ton from him. Not only is he a great leader, but he’s an even better person as you probably know. What makes all of you impactful is your authenticity and that’s what stood out to me when you were talking to us.


I just wanted to thank you again for an unexpected surprise on a guest speaker. On a side note, I’m not a big reader but I bought a book at the airport today motivated by you in an attempt to learn something new every day.  Malcom Caldwell “Talking to strangers, what we should know about the people we don’t know.”  Your closing Ted Lasso clip says it all.


Thanks again, and I hope we meet again soon.
