What are the saying about Lehman’s Terms of Business
Doug: I love your passion – this is a really high end video production as well. Thanks for the support of Socialnomics!
Erik Qualman Best Selling Author and Speaker Says
“Doug’s is THE brand ambassador for video engagement. When I met Doug about 18 months ago, it was obvious that he had a real passion for spotlighting the works of others. Since we got to know each other, Doug has become a team partner, and in true social media style, Doug has graciously highlighted me and my book without ever expecting anything in return.
Conducting a series of webinars throughout the year, I invited Doug to be a guest expert earlier this year focusing on helping sales people leverage video to their sales advantage. Not only was the session well received, but it was the first time that attendees asked me to to bring a guest expert back for a second time to share their expertise. Highly creative and passionate in his belief that the effective use of video aids in creating credibility and visibility in advance of sales opportunities, Doug gives tirelessly of his time to help others understand how to leverage this unique medium. Highly recommend!” June 15, 2011

We hired Doug for our Annual Conference. He did such a great job! He was extremely easy to work with, very accommodating. Our Attendees mentioned how nice he was and patient. I would recommend his work to anyone who asked. Having the Event Testimonies will make such a great addition to our Marketing campaign for all of our upcoming events. We could not be happier with the outcome.

“I had the opportunity coach Doug regarding his company “Lehman’s Terms of Business.” I found Doug to be not only be knowledgeable and focused, but also likable! So much so, that I then partnered with him to become the Brand Ambassador for my company and workshop series! Doug has that rare combination of being able to really listen to your business objectives and then translate everything in a way that you can grasp and implement. He coins this process as putting things in “Lehman’s Terms,” and I whole-heartedly agree. Doug is a visionary when learning new technologies and has embraced social media and personal branding. And this is evident in how he has successfully branded himself and his company. His own example assured that he could do the same for my company. Doug is driven and would be an asset to any company looking for a business development specialist or a brand ambassador to market, sell and train on their products or services. It is truly a pleasure to have Doug on the team!” July 28, 2010

“I have to say that Doug is such a unique individual that he would be a great asset to any organization. In short, he is a one man marketing machine. When I worked with Doug he was handling all contract renewals for the SE region. What separated him from the bunch was the fact that while he was working as an inside Rep. at the time, it was clear to me that he was a very valuable asset to take to clients face to face. He is a very thoughtful team player who will work with anyone and contribute ideas to provide solutions in the interest of clients. Not to mention that he is also just a very personable, entertaining guy to be around, which is always an asset in the world we live in these days. I would, without reservation give a huge thumbs up for this guy and am certain we will be working or crossing paths in the future. Feel free to contact me for additional information.”
