Dr. Tony Alessandra is two speakers in one... a professor and a performer, or as one client put it – he delivers college lectures in a comedy store format. Dr. Tony offers audiences the opportunity to enjoy themselves while learning practical, immediately applicable skills that positively impact their relationships with prospects, customers and co-workers. His focus is on how to create instant rapport with prospects, employees & vendors; how to convert prospects and customers into business apostles who will "preach the gospel" about your company and products; and how to out-market, out-sell and out-service the competition.
Dr. Alessandra has a street-wise, college-smart perspective on business, having been raised in the housing projects of NYC to eventually realizing success as a graduate professor of marketing, Internet entrepreneur, business author, and hall-of-fame keynote speaker. He earned a BBA from the Univ. of Notre Dame, an MBA from the Univ. of Connecticut and his PhD in marketing in 1976 from Georgia State University.
In addition to being president of Assessment Business Center, a company that offers online 360º assessments, Tony is also a founding partner in the Platinum Rule Group, a company which has successfully combined cutting-edge technology and proven psychology to give salespeople the ability to build and maintain positive relationships with hundreds of clients and prospects.
Dr. Alessandra is a prolific author with 27 books translated into over 50 foreign language editions, including the newly revised, best-selling "The NEW Art of Managing People" , "Charisma", "The Platinum Rule", "Collaborative Selling", and "Communicating at Work". He is featured in over 50 audio/video programs and films, including Relationship Strategies, The Optimism Advantage, and Non-Manipulative Selling. He is also the originator of the internationally-recognized behavioral style assessment tool - The Platinum Rule®.
Recognized by Meetings & Conventions Magazine as "one of America's most electrifying speakers", Dr. Alessandra was inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame in 1985. In 2009, he was inducted as one of the "Legends of the Speaking Profession," in 2013, for the 4th year in a row, he was selected as one of the Top 5 Sales/Marketing/Customer Service Speakers, and in 2010 Tony was elected into the inaugural class of the Sales Hall of Fame.
