John Polumbo Review

We signed up for Winning Edges Sales Educational Program about 3 months ago. We attended all the classes weekly and learned tremendously from the one-on-one coaching, team training and role playing a variety of sales scenarios with John Polumbo. After 3 months of practice, I felt more comfortable with sales, and was able to obtain 3 new accounts totaling 60K in revenue. These sales were a fraction of the investment in the sales program, so this course definitely had a positive ROI. I would highly recommend this program to any organization focused on high growth. For the pissed consumer reviews, all I have to say, if you don't apply the principals, how can you expect to get a return.

If John Palumbo stops returning your phone calls or attending the scheduled meetings what would you do??? If John Palumbo was a honest business man he would return my $4500!

Why do you think he is no longer a part of Sandler???

John is a GREAT salesman / *** artist!!!

Be very careful!!!

My name is Alex B and please tell me more.... John Palumbo Stole my money and Inwant it back.....

Did he steal your money too???

#1080780

Anonymous you clearly have not been around John long enough for him to burn you.

John talks the talk, but does not walk the walk.

Ask him why his second business he had failed.

Also, inquire how his relationship with the a national training brand ended....watch the tap dancing start!

Seems like someone has a grudge against John at Winning Edge Selling and is writing a couple of reviews under false pseudonums? (as you can tell these are from the same person just based on the wording).

Just to set the record straight for John's benefit, wanted to write in and say that our company has utilized his services on multiple occasions over the past 12 mths, and we've always found him to be absolutely terrific to work with. John is passionate, helpful, and a true sales professional. If you are a small business in RI or MA and you are not using John's services, then really you should call him - as he will be able to help you increase your company sales quickly and efficiently. He takes great pride in helping small businesses be successful in sales, and for us he has always been extremely responsive.

So just ignore the person who is posting a couple of negative comments and get on the phone and give John a call.

Once you speak with him, if you are a business owner then you will quickly realize he is going to be able to help you.

John Palubo Winning Edge Selling East Providence, Rhode Island

Same kind of thing happened to my husband. After loosing his sales job of after 10 years, my husband found John Palumbo of Winning Edge Selling. John gave my husband "HOPE". My husband was devastated at one of the lowest points of his life. Mr. Palumbo charged my husband $7,000 for sales training, executive coaching. After a month, the phone calss ceased, the meeting stopped and John was no where to be found. My husband was devasted, ( I told him not to give him that much money, but I wanted to be supportive). Point being DO NOT TRUST THIS CROOK JOHN PALUMBO OF WINNING EDGE SELLING. HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE, GOD WILL TRULY PUNISH HIM, I BELIEVE IN THAT.
