Owner/Lead Trainer Colorado Shine Basketball Academy, Motivational Speaker, College Recruitment Advisor to student athletes, Founder iAthletePromotions.com
I have over 15 years experience as a professional skill trainer for basketball student athletes. I have built two large AAU traveling competitive programs, over 200 athletes, and currently run the Colorado Shine Basketball Academy in Colorado. I can offer advice related to business planning, mentorship and leadership development of staff and clients, goal setting, and marketing strategies.
I have had the privilege of working with Rob Pierson in one of the most high profile events held every four years. The Democratic National Convention took place in August of 2008 in Denver, Colorado; our job was to facilitate the movement, safety and logistics for my CEO and his group for the five-day event.
Rob was a key player on the team that assisted me in Denver. His knowledge of the Denver area, understanding of executive protection and overall professionalism directly contributed to our success during the event.
Rob attention to detail, natural ability and overall understanding of corporate security allowed me to place him in a leadership role during the event. My CEO immediately became comfortable with Rob allowing everyone associated with the detail to focus on the immediate needs and not on basic aspects of the detail.
Our success that week was a direct result of Rob and his contributions to the detail; I look forward to the next opportunity to work with him.
Rob excels at working with clients to understand their business goals and needs then ultimately working with his internal teams to craft a solution that works best for his client. He gets the right people talking and provides his own experiences and expertise to each conversation. Rob is an excellent people person and has great expertise in the interactive industry. I very much look forward to working with him again in the future.
Rob is a bright and energetic sales person, manager and mentor. His highest concern is for growth and results. He is active, involved and skilled. He has a gift for communication and is able to see situations clearly, develop a plan for improvement and then direct the work to see it's accomplishment. I was impressed with Rob's ability to take a new product, clearly articulate its benefits and then manage a team responsible for selling it.
Rob did an outstanding job of building and managing the inside sales team for BenefitPoint. In addition to helping his team exceed sales quotas, he built sales scripts, training programs, on-boarding procedures and assisted with product development. I highly recommend Rob for any sales management opportunities he chooses to pursue.
Rob demonstrated a high level of personal & professional integrity when working for BenefitPoint. His attention to detail was unique compared to other Sales Managers. Rob was exceptional in understanding complex products and creating easy to follow selling methods for his staff. He always led by example.
I have never met a more qualified, professional & experienced business partner as Rob. He conducts himself both in personal and business situations with a presence that we all can look up to. It doesn’t matter if Rob is conducting a basketball camp or a highly complex business situation his leadership and work ethic are exceptional.
It is always a pleasure being around Rob Pierson.
