"I have known Debra 2 years attended 2 of her training sessions. I was impressed with the information and her presentation. I would recommend her classes to others.

I had the pleasure of working with Debra during her tenure at DPS, and found her to be a responsible manager with top notch communication skills and an attention to detail that was second to none.

Samuel Stanaitis, System Administrator, Decorative Product Source

Connected to the industry and connected her staff. Debra's open door policy was genuine and worked to all of our benefit. She was talented at keeping the company mission in the forefront while still attending to the day to day, minute to minute needs, queries, attentions of the staff.

Debra was a leader at Decorative Product Source but I think the real proof of her leadership lays within what she has accomplished since. She has a following of devotees that includes myself.

Thanks you for the opportunity to speak the praises of someone I admire.

Peter Sammer, Account Executive, Port Answer

Debra is a natural motivator. She instills a positive sense of pride and ownership into her teams. She brings a new level of professionalism and business acumen to a sales department resulting in an immediate increase in productivity & profitability

Russell Ackner, VP E-Commerce & Creative, Decorative Product Source, Inc.

Although we have known each other for a number of years and I have seen you speak before, there is no question that you have gained much experience and wisdom over the years. Hearing you speak at the Pine Bush Area Chamber yesterday was an opportunity I am glad I did not miss. Admittedly, going in I wasn't sure if your material would be applicable to my "small potatoes" business, but after opening my mind I began to appreciate how all the little gems you shared would help me to grow my business. Thank you for your persistence in growing yourself to what you have become, and thank you for your unselfish sharing! I appreciate you Debora.

Kurt Griffith, Owner, Fantastic Realities Studio

Mystified by the sales process? Unsure how to be persistent in your sales efforts without being a pest? Debra Pearlman can help set you straight. The first time I attended one of her sales training sessions, I saw immediately that she uses a similar methodology in the sales process as I do in troubleshooting management and operations processes for my clients: providing structure. How frequently do you call a prospect, for instance? How many calls / contacts do you need to make to have a good chance at closing a sale? As an analytical person, I immediately saw the value that Debra provides in teaching a process that leads to more consistent sales activity and increases probability of positive results.

Steve Caccavo, President of Constructive Business Solutions

Debra is a motivated and is focused on getting her clients the most they can from their sales process. She has helped me implement sales trainings, sales meetings, and productivity assessments. She would be a valuable asset to any company looking to gain a competitive edge with their sales force.

Debra is one of the best investments I ever made. She helped me develop a sales system so that my funnel remained full while working with clients. In fact, I did not realize other areas that needed to be addressed until I was able to examine my sales process. Being that I am an efficiency expert having a process I can adapt and follow was liberating on many levels. As my company grows I am looking forward to hiring her to train my future sales staff. She is a talented professional who exceed expectations. Thank you Debra for teaching me how to be a professional salesperson.

Cynthia Marsh-Croll

Debra Pearlman is a top sales consultant. Her experience working in many companies over time has made her, and her firm, a true asset to any sales and service organization. As an Insurance Consultant, my industry requires strong, aggressive sales followed by excellent customer service. It is difficult enough hiring and training the right people as the face of your organization, but Debra works with your existing staff and brings them up to the level of professionalism that clients need.

I would endorse Debra over and over again. Listen to her on the radio.

Jonathan A. Theodore

I first had the opportunity to get to know Debra socially and found her wisdom and honesty to be refreshing and motivating. I asked Debra to meet with my, then, supervisor and to counsel the company's sales and hospitality team. Debra's coaching helped revitalize the team and inspired them to become more active, creative, and efficient.

On a personal level, Debra has always seen my potential and has gently swayed me to step outside my comfort zone. She has inspired to complete my degree and encouraged me to start my own business. Debra has the ability to see the best in people, but more importantly she empowers people so that they can see the best in themselves. I would highly recommend Debra to guide you to a reach limitless potential.

Debra gave an inspiring presentation "The Sales Side of Marketing" at the Business Marketing Association of the Hudson Valley dinner program on October 22, 2008. Her presentation, materials, and question and answer session provided our members with the information needed to expand our business expertise and grow professionally. Her handouts were helpful in getting the audience to think about a specific plan of action to get their own businesses through this economic downturn. She is truly a polished and motivational speaker and I will recommend colleagues to call DP Sales Pro to increase their business.

I have been a colleague of Debra for several years, and she has worked with my clients in mastering their sales abilities. She is both an expert in the strategies and the human relationship aspect of sale, and a trusted advisor. Debra goes the extra mile, adding more value and helping her clients connect sales with the business vision. Her approach is soft and supportive, like watering parched earth so that the learning soaks in and become part of your own DNA. She brings many years of sales experience and a wisdom of how people learn to her work that would make her an asset to your business.
