"Second time I hired you"

This is the second time I hired you to speak to our people. That speaks of my high confidence in you, your style and your message. That also speaks of my satisfaction. I would hire you again - because I know I can count on your results.

Because our business is built on relationships, I valued the emphasis you placed on relationship building. You explained why. You clarified principles. You showed them how. You challenged them to get involved.

Most importantly, you demonstrated that despite the chores, our business can be fun. You clearly have fun at what you do. That makes it so easy for your audience to enjoy your presentation and soak up your insights.

A sampling of the quotes from George Torok included in Colombo’s quote book;

“As my grandfather used to say, ‘You can do anything you want but you can’t do everything you want.”

“Mountain climbers will scale a mountain because ‘it is there’. Why don’t teenagers clean the mess in their room for the same reason?”

“Anyone can manage when things go right. It takes a leader to take charge when things go wrong.”

“There are three types of meetings – boring, complete waste of time and postponed.”




What's motivational about running marathons?


George Torok knows the pain of quiting and the embarassment of not measuring up. In high school he failed to make the football team so he ended up on the track team.

Thirty years later he completed his first marathon - 26 miles. Since then he has completed two full marathons and five 30-k races. So what's motivational about running marathons? Crossing the finish line.
