It was a pleasure having Tom present to our entire management and leadership team at our bi-annual conference for la Madeleine French Bakery and Café.

Tom went out of his way to meet with us before the event to make sure he could personalize the experience to our group – and he followed through on that personalization and promise.  He showed up early and sat in on other presentations to get a feel for the themes and tone of the conference. 

Tom’s interaction with the group was fun and impactful.  He found ways to drive the FISH! Philosophy principles home in a manner relative to our business, and one that our GM’s could connect with.

I would highly recommend bringing Tom on for your next meeting – and adding on the FISH! is a must!

I wholeheartedly recommend Tom Guetzke based on his exceptional presentation of The FISH Philosophy at a Minnesota Retailers Association event. Tom’s engaging delivery, inspirational message, and hands-on exercises left a lasting impact on our audience. His ability to connect with people and retailers, and convey the principles of The FISH Philosophy made the session not only informative but also enjoyable. Tom’s expertise and passion for creating a positive and vibrant workplace culture shine through, making him an invaluable resource for any organization seeking to enhance customer service, employee engagement, and overall happiness.
