"Jackie has remained a mentor of mine throughout my career. I have recently grown into a management and partnership position within my company where I’ve successfully adopted many of the managerial attributes I witnessed firsthand working directly for her. Her sales training is a unique, modern approach to selling, versus the old ‘canned speech’ training found elsewhere. It is realistic and easy to incorporate, creating successful results because you come across as being genuine and bringing value to your customer."

“Lawyers hardly ever think outside the box. Lots of us never knew that we needed to be ‘selling’ and developing business. I certainly didn’t. Knowing that there are some best-practices and processes out there give me comfort that if I work hard at it, I can make it happen. I absolutely recommend Jackie and this course!”

Shawn Huelin

"People spend a lot of time at work. If it is toxic, they bring that home which affects their family. Your course ‘Toxic Takedown’ fixes the problem at the source. This will translate into a better family life, which is invaluable. I recommend your program to companies large and small."
Ron Finlay

"Jackie knows her topic, and appears to be really experienced. Her Colours Profiling Assessment is well explained, and it works! I can clearly see how personality profiling improves productivity and bottom lines. I’m looking forward to the next 4 sessions. I highly recommend this course."
Judy E. Thomas
Real Estate Consultant
"Jackie did ‘True Colors® Team Building & Leadership’ with our Executive Team. She customized the content specifically for our needs and hit the nail on the head after I spoke with her about what we wanted to achieve! It was definitely worth the time spent on this course! The course was intuitive and rewarding, and helpful both personally and professionally. Jackie is amazing! And super fun too!"
Paula Strilchuk
Genesis Builders Group
"Understanding myself and others better combined with having the tools to improve my selling based on different personalities, using ‘I understand’ to quickly and easily overcome objections, and using ‘which means’ to really seal the deal in selling were my 3 big takeaways. I think the biggest impact on my career was understanding the buying cycle. Learning to stay away from ‘price’ conversation until I have met the other steps in the buying cycle was really profound for me! The 2 days spent with Jackie were well planned and focused on great sales training! The training was informative, interactive, and fun!"
Kelly Holyoak
"Focusing on using the tools from ‘Colors’ to identify customer needs, and tailor my approach and the sales process to their ‘Color Profile’ was fabulous! Learning how to easily overcome objections and using ‘which means’ will build real ‘value’ as I move forward! Using the ‘Color Profiling’ to improve my sales and my relationship combined with the above takeaways will have the biggest impact on my career and my life! I thought the Training was GREAT!! I like that you reviewed things several times to ensure we understood and got it ‘into our brains’ was excellent! Loved the thorough explanations! It was easy to understand and retain! Thank you Jackie!"
Erin McGeachy
"Overcoming Fear and Overcoming Objections were big ones for me! Being clear on how to differentiate ourselves and the Company, and creating a Value Proposition for myself and Hunter Douglas were things I really appreciated. Creating opportunities, looking, and seeing the opportunities will have a big impact on my career moving forward. I will be much better prepared and am much more confident in asking for the close. I really liked the interactive role-play; overcoming objections, elevator speech, and creating a picture for the client. I feel like I am much better prepared for those real-life situations after taking these courses."
Gillian Cafa
"Using ‘trial close’ statements to easily close was something I had never done. Identifying the need with open-ended statements and learning how to sell better using the Colors was terrific! I will use those moving forward. Make and do ‘10% more’ to get 10x the results a great takeaway which I will implement right away! Such awesome information in your presentation!"
Allison McGee
“ Which means' to find the emotional need, 'I understand' to easily overcome objections, and ‘The steps of a sale’ were my 3 biggest takeaways. The concept that being persistent in follow up is not the same as being pushy will have a big impact on my career. There was a vast scope and amount of very good information presented in the two sessions that will assist me in selling better!"
Margo Trofimenkoff
"I enjoyed learning more about how we can use ‘words to add higher impact and increase persuasion’ to our sales presentation, the numerous unique and different ideas for closing, and how you can ‘change your mindset to change your results’. Color Profiling (and the tools for selling better with faster results), ‘which means’ (an easy way to meet the deeper emotional need) and how becoming a ‘Consultative’ Sales Person will have the biggest impact on my career! The Seminars were a great time spent on self-evaluating, and understanding how the sales process can be done simpler, more smoothly, and more professionally."
Sue Gathercole
“Jackie Rainforth is a FORCE to be reckoned with. If you feel stuck in your sales career or have lost direction, Jackie can pull strengths that you didn't know you possess. Sometimes, not succeeding in sales means that we need to look at our situation in a new light. Jackie is an expert at helping you evaluate who you are, where you are going and HOW to get there.”

Sharon Shore
Blackstone Realty
"Jackie Rainforth is someone who is an expert at one of the most powerful qualities I witness in transformational speakers...the ability to be present and caring with the people in the audience while deeply vulnerably sharing a personal life altering experience. People are riveted by the grace and strength she shines in sharing her story and they can identify with the valuable content she provides. Jackie creates an environment that allows someone to relate to their own life, be inspired by what is possible, and begin taking action towards something new. As an event organizer, it is a true gift to work with her and see the impact she has on an audience. I am grateful to have had her on my stage and to have also had the pleasure to share a stage with her."

Susan Kandalaft
President, Executive Solutions Ltd.
"My co-workers and I participated in the Colors program with Jackie's company. I was open but didn't expect to gain much as I've participated in many personality programs before. Much to my surprise, I gained valuable personal insight amongst the fun team-building exercises that Jackie facilitated. We went through a number of months ago as a group. We still refer to each other by our 'colors' and use the learnings and concepts acquired that day."
