I’ve been following Tony’s work for about a decade and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him keynote a few events. As a speaker, Tony comes prepared as THE subject matter expert. He engages his audiences with a nice balance of wisdom and humor. He makes you think and — more importantly — he makes you want to take action in your life and business. Tony does not disappoint!

Tony Mayo provides insightful, no-nonsense, practical approaches to handling that dreaded s-word: sales. He is generous in his teachings, giving you the common sense language to use so you don’t feel icky selling your services, and then backs it up with free pdfs to serve as reminders when you’re out there on your own about to pick up the phone. He is the master of teaching how to use curiosity and clarity to qualify clients, set fees, and get the sale. If you’re looking for practical sales tips, hire Tony to speak or consult or both. It’s an investment in you and your company that keeps on paying you back.

Tony is an exceptional speaker and an insightful business coach.
As as speaker he brings his unique brand of energy and humor to connect each audience member and lead them to their own “ah-HA” moment. He breaks down concepts into actionable steps that you can remember, implement and repeat. When Tony is speaking time seems to fly. He leaves audiences with practical motivation and wanting more. If you want a speaker to help your audience reach new heights, then you need to ‘add Mayo’.
Tony earned the right to coach by actually doing what he teaches – for a long time. He draws on a lifetime of experience in sales and business growth to help CEOs reach their full leadership potential. He has a knack for helping you see the truth about your business (even if it is uncomfortable) and then asking just the right questions at just the right time to lead you where you need to go as a leader. And then he provides the tools and structure to make the vision a reality. If you want real advice from someone who has been there, and done that, then you need to talk with Tony.

Tony Mayo has that special way of observing, reflecting and then give you feed-back in a way that makes you see the world, your speech and your concept, in a different way. With a keen eye and discerning sense of deep listening he gets to the core and helps you unfold and unpack what you are hoping to convey. When developing a new speech and working on your performance, you want Tony on your team, to help you be the best you can be.
He is also both funny and kind in that dry, sincere way that only a person of deep compassion can bring to a coaching session. I can highly recommend that you work with Tony Mayo.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tony in the Heroic Public Speaking community. In his senior role as a Teaching Fellow, I experienced the incredible depth of his skill as a speaker, mentor, and coach.
Since then I’ve had the chance to learn more about his work. His skills as an executive coach to business owners are beyond compare. Tony has the ability to quickly make a point, shift someone’s thinking, or compel them to action. Add to this his sales expertise, and you have someone who’s potent ally. You’d be remiss if you fail to hire him!

Tony listens with patience and understanding in order to offer his guidance and advice clearly. He helped me through a situation I had where a fast decision had to be made in my business. He asked the right questions and he got down to the core issue I was facing. Through our conversation, I was able to see a new perspective and feel confident in the decision.
Tony impressed me with how fast he knew exactly where I was and what I needed to hear to get me past it. His mentorship and coaching would be a significant benefit to any executive or business owner.
