“I have had the opportunity to work with Dean over the past several years. My very first experience with him was when he facilitated a strategic planning meeting for NAIFA – Dallas which is the premier industry trade association for life insurance agents and financial planners. It was my year as President and we were in need of the best person to get those of us on the Board thinking outside of the box while having to make some tough decisions. It was a fantastic experience and as a result, we had a great year with a great renewed focus and direction. A lot of Progress was achieved. I have also had the opportunity to use Dean in coaching a sales team as well as a supporting service team. At the time, I was in charge of Sales for Pacific Life & Annuity’s medical plans. Dean brought a whole new insight that actually helped better identify common ground between both the sales and service teams and helped my team focus on making some positive progress during some very challenging times. He did this effectively both as a group and in 1:1 coaching opportunities. Dean presents himself in a very professional yet entertaining, positive and uplifting manner. As a result, all of the sales results and the attitude change of the team afterwards were incredible!” – Lee Ripley, Regional Vice President of Sales, Pacific Life & Annuity
