Social media, digital marketing, web shopping, on-line training platforms, robots. ….. The marketing and sales world is full of it.
Those are indeed good solutions today to market and sell your products and services the easy way. Today however in an extremely competitive market where most companies are on-line and most of them are familiar with search engine optimizations, social networks and landing pages PEOPLE will more and more make the difference.
The sales person today who still has the guts to telephone, to meet people face to face, who is convinced and who knows the importance in emotions which make people act, is worth GOLD.
It is the conviction and the attitude towards clients and prospects which gives today the biggest competitive advantage. And this is good news for sales people.
So sales people, do not hide behind your computer screens; go back on the street, meet people.
The world needs personal contact more than ever.

Next seminar will be in Hilton Sofia on how to build a team. More info, contact us
Marc J. De Turck, in his speech concerning past and future of IDEAS, stresses on educating the graduates in order to stay in Bulgaria.
That is why Mr Toth also showed the pilot of the course “Natural law of personal success” as the first of a series of courses which will come out soon and will be delivered by IDEAS FreeBoss via the Hubbard College of Administration.
110 business people, clients of IDEAS FreeBoss, attended the magnificent event in a anniversary party decoration.
Of course the staff of IDEAs including the Macedonia team was awarded for its dedication.
IDEAS FreeBoss is invited to deliver a lecture on Self Motivation to those future managers of SAP.
Ukraine October 1st, while there is war in the Donetsk zone, Kiev looks calm. Our partners of Olerom however where faced with another unpleasant situation. The founder and the manager where recently involved in a serious car crash and both where still re-validating from the crash.
So not enough outflow. Two days before the seminar the idea was to postpone the – today very well known – Free Boss seminar in Kiev.
But together with Olerom we disagreed on the situation and we postulated a miracle and …. yes a small miracle happened. In 2 days a lot of people subscribed for the seminar and we started finally with 11 business people. One even came from the Donetsk region especially to the seminar.
11 managers finally received basic L.Ron Hubbard data on how to become more free with a better management and organisation.
At the same time the Way to Happiness Booklet was promoted as a solution to the war in Ukraine. And yes all attendees could laugh again after the tone scale was explained.
I am happy to have helped again these nice people from Ukraine.
I wish all people from Ukraine peace.

Thank you for the wonderful seminar.
The lecturers were extremely communicative, they well complement one another.
I have learned a lot of new things that I hope will use successfully.
Fantastic speaker. Gives lots of energy and important data in a humoristic way. I never slept on his seminar and I stayed until the end, what I normally not do on seminars.
J.D. CEO, Building company
I received a good preparation for my work with the living human being. The exposed theory plus the practical drills will help me for more success with people.
The training gives us the opportunity to look from a side with enriched look otherwise common things from our everyday life. Some of those things we feel and realize internally and all this actually can be systematized. Gives us tools for managing of various situations.

For me this seminar was useful in dependence with the job I am doing now – Chief of the Cabinet of a Minister. In my everyday life I meet different people with different personalities and have to take different decisions. I am sure, now this will be easier for me.
I want to thank you for the knowledge you gave us.
For me today’s seminar was interesting because I explained to myself some behavioristic, emotional and other phenomena about the people around us. I liked also the systematization of the approaches which can be used to gain results in already created problematic situation as well as methods for avoiding such situations.
L.P. Head of Business Development and Sales
Interesting techniques concerning emotions and the tone scale.
P.G. Chief of operations
Thank you for the way of presentation of the lecture and my view about the management has changed in another direction, having in mind how we can look at the team and team work.
It was very useful for me to have practical and specific example in the management of an organization.
My personal benefit from the seminar is big and I hope I will implement it in the future.
During the phone conversation, I can share that the application of what you learned to your workshops gave positive results.
The facts are as follows:
We have entered personal statistics for each of our employees. For traders - this is the sales in BGN, for the production - the production in BGN, for the front office, the accepted orders in BGN, for the back office, the processed documents in the number, etc.
In short, each employee has a numerical characteristic that reflects his weekly result.
The weekly operational meeting is on Friday before the start of the business day, because traders travel and return at different times in the afternoon.
We look at the results for each of the graphs with a trend line for the last 7-8 weeks.
The positive trend receives a monthly premium of 25%. Negative or lack of trend has no compensation.
1. Time for the briefing is reduced from 60-90 minutes to 10 minutes. The review of the results takes 1-2 minutes. The other time is to discuss the general measures to change the negative trend in one of our colleagues. Naturally, nobody is indifferent to such kind of attention and tries to avoid it.
2. Completely halted negative exposure with opinions from the antisocial contingent that everyone cultivates. The "PTS" became more active and more often achieve a positive trend.
3. Sales have increased, output has increased in what is most curious - with fewer people. My explanation of the latter is that this is due to the frequent absence of antisocial elements that are unable to work with a constant workload and high results. The joy is that these people are "illuminated" and their negative attitudes are poorly influenced. In general, the rest of the people isolated them. It turned out a social experiment!
I can write a lot more but appreciate your time, HUGE THANKS for what I have learned from you, I will be glad to meet in the future.
Give my regards to Marc,
With my greatest respect,
I hope to be able to successfully apply in practice the presented principles which enriched what I knew so far. The examples given at the seminar will bring about successful realization. Thank you.
R.K. Chief of “Operations”
The seminar was useful for me because I learned how I can “order” even better my way of life – professional and personal. Thank you!
M.S. Trade Director
Impressions that I want to share with you exceed my expectations. The way of presenting the lecture from both of lecturers made me feel like a part of their team.
Enthusiasm they gave us kept it interesting all the time. The things I’ve learned will be useful for me not only in my work as Chief of the Cabinet, but also in my life – especially personal life.
I wish to the team to be always at good level and I longing to see you on the next seminar.
N.T. Chief of Cabinet
Thank you to Mr. Marc De Turck and Mr. Imre Toth for the presented subjects. For me this was a new theme and field of knowledge.
I wish success to the whole team and I am looking forward to see you!
From the seminar I learned a few techniques for finding out the emotions of my opponent. Directions for leading of conversation in a different environment (good or hostile). Specification of the characteristics of the anti-social personality was also useful. As a recommendation: to put little more stress on the conflict itself – techniques in its resolution in different situations – boss-subordinate; between colleagues and so on.
R.D. Sales Manager
Thank you for the precious moments! The skill to communicate is something which we as human beings easily lose and fall into conflicts. To be able to handle them even when they seem bigger or higher than us is as important as knowing the ways in which we can fall in them. I am happy I’ve been with you and see you again!
D.P. Senior administrator HR
My name is Andrey Kamenov and I am the owner of Orbisoft, a company that manufactures software systems and sites. I like work and I do it with desire every day for 7 years. Despite the rising trend of my business, I have been struggling for a long time with organizational problems, with customer communication and the sales process. I had clear goals about where I wanted to be and what to achieve, but the path to their achievement was vague, confused, with the times of difficulty. In a few words: "A lot of work for small and unsatisfactory results." After attending the Free Boss seminar, I realized that I had lost a lot of time in search of complex systems for organizing business, time, team, products and energy. This whole chain I found in the courses of 'Ideas'. Working with Mark and his team has helped me to double my sales, organize my processes and deliver my products on time. Sincerely I recommend working with Mark and Ideas if anyone has any doubt can write to me firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be glad to talk to him about it.
I want to express my good feelings towards both of the lecturers. They are two wonderful lecturers not only in theory, but also in the practice. All the information we received (despite it more difficult perception) is involved in our everyday life (in personal and professional aspect).
The good systematization will help us to see from a different angle the colleges beside us and to be able to understand them.
Thank you for the wonderful presentation and I hope we will have future meetings!
I also thank you for the wonderful training and personally to you for the extra time spent with us.
You have made me look differently in the people around me, whether they are our clients or my close people. I never really figured out how much you can be useful when you recognize the emotion of the person in front of you and make him go to a higher level. I tried it. This is unbelievable. Thank you!
Waiting for new meetings!
It was pleasure for me to take part in this seminar, on which I learned, systematized things, what I met in the past and intuitively recognized in my personal and professional relationships.
Thank you for your attention and for the interesting seminar you presented to us.
I wish you a lot of achievements and personal success!
Perfect: The seminar on conflict prevention and resolution was:
- Not loaded with terminology;
- Delivered in an entertaining way;
- Logically structured;
- Interesting in the communication with the participants
From the seminar we received useful and interesting information concerning basic principles for conflict resolution, how to define and recognize the emotions from the Tone scale and the characteristics of the social and anti-social personality. It might be added some preventions for conflict appearance. Wonderful lecturer with perfect qualifications of an orator and body language.
V.I. Sales manager
For me the seminar was very interesting, in a great extend it “opened my eyes” about the reasons why people behave in a certain way. In the last part the emotions came a little bit too much for me. The concept is very interesting and I would like to read the book.
M.K. HR Director
I hope to be able with the help of the seminar to handle the conflicts between my colleagues (and the anger in me).
Thanks to the training team! Perfect organization, professional approach, interesting point of view of the problems discussed. Provoking the interest of the workers in the sphere of business to this issue is praiseworthy. I wish you success in every new challenge! Always be so open and ready for all the managers who want to be one step ahead in the dynamic business environment.
I think that the fact two lecturers were so artistic very much help to direct the attention of the participants and to learn the matter.
The seminar is very useful to understand the basics of behavior of people who have bigger responsibility toward their subordinates and to help their work in making important decisions.
Fascinating and interesting performance by the lecturer. Categorically discharging and entertaining though it was not so deep. In each new contact one can learn something useful and practically applicable. I would define what I learned today as “each new thing is a well forgotten old one”.
