“The Summit is brilliant once again. I was a member last year and purchased the MP3s and transcripts too. I think this year is even better between your selection of speakers and the content.
I am learning a lot and am almost overwhelmed with the amount of ideas and pertinent information espoused by each speaker. I am familiar with many of them. I think each trainer brings different strong points and value to the table.
I also want to bring to your attention the professionalism and diligence of your Support Manager, CJ Wright. I know you recognize and appreciate the value of a quality employee, Mark. CJ is QUALITY. The response to my email regarding the quality of the broadcast and obtaining your contact email could not have been quicker.
I wish you the best always Mark. The Summit is the best of its kind.”

I took many pages of notes, which I condensed into 3 pages of notes I plan to implement. Since I work alone, this ought to keep me busy for quite some time! But I’ll certainly be ready for more jewels by next year’s summit!Thanks again for providing such a valuable service! It is so much appreciated!”

“Hi Mark, congratulations on getting Ann Swain as one of your speakers! She had some eye-opening and inspiring remarks! All recruitment firms need to put their thinking caps on if they want to be on top of future business!”
“Mark- Big Biller Summit was a fantastic opportunity to educate oneself with some of the best industry leaders in the convenience of one’s office. Thank you for that. I gained a lot of valuable information, refreshed some rudimentary principles of recruiting, and found new motivation to pick up the phone and get on with it. The dooms day sayers would have us believe that there is nothing out there to work on and with that comes lethargy to do more of nothing. A vicious circle. The lineup of speakers was phenomenal; the schedule a little tight, the quality was superb.
Looking forward to next year.”

“Loved the Big Biller Summit. I liked that there were so many different subjects. I would say 75% of them were relevent for me. I learned that there are better ways to do what I’m doing. In fact, I’m going to attend a training from Doug Beabout after listening to him on your show. So, this show was extremely helpful to me. I would absolutely recommend to a friend. I would recommend as I thought it was very informatiive, very relevent and helpful with regard the struggles I’m working with.”
“The best part of the summit was the diverse panel of expert facilitators. While each presented unique perspectives, their message was central on building a solid recruiting business. What stood out to me was the psychological aspect of this business… Recruiters partake in tasks that are bounded by process specific activities, of which can be tedious at times, but with consistency can lead to a regimen resulting in much success (over time).
I would definitely recommend the Big Biller Summit to all recruiting professionals. It is not only a learning opportunity, but also an opportunity to be inspired and motivated by those who have experienced the highs and lows of the business and are able to share how to overcome and succeed in it as well.”

“Mark, I thought the Summit was outstanding. I have been a recruiter since 1983 when I joined MRI. I know Bob Marshall well-or did back then. It was very interesting to find that many of the methods that we were taught back then by Bob and others are still the core of present day recruiting–for this I am grateful–thank you for setting this up–it takes a great deal of effort to do what you must have done. This Summit was exceedingly helpful.”
