Wow! What a dynamic and engaging public speaker. Michael is a fantastic resource for businesses that are serious about engaging in a concerted public relations outreach. The tools, tips and techniques that Michael discussed were invaluable in our efforts to connect with our graduate students. Highly recommended!

Plan to help re-position the Foundation and build brand awareness. The Executive Director will focus on leading with S.M.A.R.T. goals, listening and “letting go” to enhance organizational growth. We will continue IMC’s work by mentoring Program Directors on accountability, evaluation, recognition and discipline with respect. Please accept our sincere thank you and great appreciation for the time and talent that you shared with our Board of Directors and staff.

It has been just over a month since you completed your diagnostic and spoke at our annual retreat. Since then many new and positive changes have taken place in our firm. This letter summarizes some of my strongest thought, feelings and gratitude for your efforts. In general, your recommendations have helped us become a more focused organization. Today we have more specific goals that are shared by all the employees. Best of all, there is a greater “Buy-in” than before. The staff is still talking about your presentation. I would not hesitate to contact you for future work or refer you to our clients.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael Loschke on several occasions in various adult-learning environments. I am very impressed with the depth of his marketing and overall business knowledge, as well as his ability to facilitate interaction between members of diverse groups possessing a wide range of knowledge, expertise and personalities. Michael is both a gifted and intelligent trainer and has a remarkable ability to engage and involve participants in a dynamic, fun and non-intimidating manner. If you or someone you know is looking for a trainer with Michael’s background and expertise, then I recommend him without reservation.
Kurtis Clark, Director
Alliance Small Business Development Center
Several consultants were contacted and following a series of interviews, Mr. Loschke was selected. The directors were unanimous in their praise for the experience and the progress that is being made in the workshop. The directors feel they all have a good understanding of the mission of the chamber of Commerce, as well as the organizational changes that need to be made in order for the mission to work for the chamber and the community. Communications between directors, the board and the Executive director are clearer and more purposeful. There is also a commitment to common goals and an understanding of the role consensus plays in the operation of a successful organization. The sense of frustration commonly expressed by directors has been replaced with a growing sense of purpose and willingness to work towards increased success. This positive change is the result of the guidance and encouragement provided by Michael Loschke.

I felt the session you facilitated was outstanding. You were very in-tune to the needs of the staff and the organization. You made each participant feel that he/she was an important part of the planning process…By the time the meeting ended they were all excited, eager and very willing to be part of the ongoing process.
Nancy Cook, Director
Stanislaus County Office of Education
Your presentation shed new light on how to recruit and retain the “right fit employees”. You have motivated many of us to do more reading and research on the subject. Your presentation style made it come alive and we certainly appreciated your humor. Please know that you will be the first person called when we again need someone of your expertise on the topic.

Your presentations on the current day trends of marketing will be helpful to our members as they pursue methods of attracting new clients and retain customers that they have served in the past. We had so much positive feedback on your presentation that night. We appreciated your professional interaction with the group and the humor you sprinkled throughout the presentation made the evening very enjoyable.

Michael gave me some great ideas on how to grow my firm’s list of contacts for Constant Contact as well as how to increase the clicks on the eblasts I was sending. I walked away with so much valuable information, and I began seeing the results right away.
Judith Ramos, Transaction Manager
NAI Benchmark Commercial Real Estate
Thanks Michael for an amazing presentation! Your knowledge and enthusiasm for social media is what doubled our attendance at a recent B2B Connect meeting. The topic of “Ways to Utilize Social Media to Jump Start Your Business” was inspiring to everyone that participated. I look forward to the results that will follow as each person implements ways to effectively grow their business and the referrals that will be generated.
Curt Zimmerman, Business Insurance Manager
B-V Insurance Services
Michael and his entire staff are highly knowledgeable,detail oriented and very respectful of others time. I have attended several seminars and always take away something new. No matter how well oiled we think our business machine is, we all need subtle reminders to step back and see how well it really is running. Michael does a great job of that.
Dennis Hermreck, Manager
International Monetary Systems
Before we hired Michael to help us with our marketing strategy and execution, we felt unsure on the direction we needed to take to market to our customers. We had seven years of data and had never reached out to our customers except when they came to see us. He is currently providing us with education, direction and a plan on how best to communicate with our customers without making our customers feel like we are overloading them.
Kristi Anthony, Owner

Michael, along with his IMC team, helped us view our organization through a different lens and think “outside the box” when it comes to hospitality. He was very professional and worked hard to learn about our organization and provide insightful suggestions and practical action points.

Michael lead a GREAT Exhibitor training for the Turlock Chamber Business Summit coming up October 10, 2012. It was so nice to have a check list and be reminded of all that people see when visiting your area during an event. Thanks for all the tips!!
Mary Matthews, Account Executive

As the owner of a small business start-up, I appreciate Michael’s perspective on growth and marketing. Michael’s talent for asking the right questions provoked meaningful discussion and analysis. As a result, I’m better suited to continue growing my business and addressing my clients’ needs. I look forward to Michael’s continued service and insight.
Alan Gwynn, Education Consultant
Michael’s business development seminars for the local business community are well worth the investment, both of time and resources. Michael is thoroughly organized, knowledgeable and focused on results, specifically in the form of increasing success levels. I have been impressed with his professionalism and his personable approach to business. I recommend his services to all managers and entrepreneurs.

Thank you for your professional assistance this past year. Your knowledge and experience helped me make some difficult decisions that improved Mena & Company Salon. I immediately made a few staff changes and those that remain are looking and acting more professionally with new contracts and measurable goals. Sales are up! We will continue to make changes based on your evaluation and feedback. I am especially excited about our new esthetician and nail specialist. I am also more motivated and focused on what is necessary to succeed with your help. We are looking forward to a great 2012! Thank you again for your insight and help. I am recommending you to all my friends and business associates.

Michael is great with helping companies, especially start-up businesses that can utilize his training and consulting on how to use available resources to grow their business. His vast network of business contacts can help clients get the fast-track start to success.
Ron Posey, Journalist

Thank you and your team for the very professional and honest services. Your expertise and input have definitely been of great value to our company. I wish we had the benefit of your superior services in the early start up phase of our business. Your “Diagnostic SNAPSHOT” feedback was excellent! Your comprehensive research and the tactful yet direct way you presented your findings helped our staff to easily follow your advice.

Changing things after doing them the same way for so long is hard. Business was good for six years but we weren’t growing the way I wanted. Now I understand how and why we must work harder to keep our most valuable “guests” happy while also finding new ones. I know it has helped us achieve this amazing growth- 47% over the past six months! Everyone loves our new logo, brochure, gift cards and uniforms. The new image and training has made us a better team. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with you and IMC as Renee’s Day Spa expands to new locations. Thanks again.

I wanted you to know how grateful I am for your 12 week Professional Marketing & Sales Skills program. Your unique coaching style taught me how important it is to establish rapport, the different personality types and how critical it is to get out of the shop and meet with our better clients. I have to mention that the response we received from the mailer you designed was just awesome! Our customers walked in and would point to the featured product and say “I want that.” I have also come to enjoy the positive feedback from our clients and vendors, as our presentations become more professional and polished.

Michael gives attention to every detail. He is very intense and relentless with “homework” one must provide in order to keep the process moving. The concepts he repeats are mantra to him. His formula for success is very organized and easily repeatable. It is very easy for a client of his to assume that winning will happen merely by following the rules. And it happens just that way.
Arnold Eilers, Owner
You have a special way of reaching people that is very effective. Our board had many positive comments and individual members have requested that you speak again soon. I am also delighted with the changes in our membership director, Alba Verduzco. Since completing your Professional Sales & Marketing course, her production has increased over 53% in just 12 weeks! Alba tells me she is more confident now that she knows how to establish rapport with members and prospects. I can see she is more outgoing and asks more questions.
Eduardo Morales, Executive Director
Stanislaus County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
This letter is to show our appreciation and thanks for your work with California Alternative Therapy and more recently with INGENIO. We are VERY happy with the 14% response rate from your INGENIO program. INGENIO gave us a database in 12 weeks, that would have taken us six or seven months to complete.
Berry and Sara Worden, Owners

IMC both improved our business from $200k to our biggest year last year, a 50% increase. Mr. Loschke is very professional, a pleasure to work with and easily comprehendible.
Danny Urbina, Owner
Sales are up almost up 40%. After completing our SNAPSHOT and our first business plan, I can see my changes in our lives that we didn’t expect, our stress levels went down. I don’t feel like I am racing I feel much more focused and definitely more efficient.

Your opinions were accurate and concise and will provide us the information and energy for our company to grow.
Carl Tognolini, Owner
Marketing in the new Millennium’ contained extremely valuable insights and advice for our company and our agents. The response of the agents and staff has been encouraging…It’s gratifying to overhear them talking amongst themselves quoting some of the ideas you shared with them. I was impressed with the information, the impressive PowerPoint and easy future reference workbook. Rest assured, you will be invited back to future sales and motivational rallies in the future. We are very pleased with the results.

I wanted to take a minute to let you know how thrilled I am regarding the feature article The Modesto Bee wrote…You can’t buy this kind of advertising and you are responsible. Your idea to link DJ Designs to Diablo Grande Country Club in our Hospice Ad was brilliant.
Debbie Cardoza, Owner
He has consulted on marketing our Parade of Homes, our Home Shows, Our Builder Magazine and numerous committees. His dedication to his clients is outstanding.
Edward Taczanowsky, Executive Director

He did an excellent job in aiding our program with the redesign of our marketing strategies. They are personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I recommend them to you without reservations.
David H. Schroeder, Ph. D.
Mike is one of the most visionary, talented young men that I have had the pleasure of working with over the past 18 years. I have had the opportunity to engage the services of Integrated Marketing Concepts for projects out side the political arena and their professionalism, competence and enthusiasm has been present there as well.
