I had the opportunity to take Whetstone’s training and it was a career altering experience! He provided me with the tools necessary to take my career to the next level, from Sales Person to Trusted Advisor. I was so impressed by Whetstone, that I encouraged another one of my employers to engage them to assist us with one of our corporate initiatives. It is a consensus that Adrian is the best facilitator that any of us have had the privilege of working with. I would not hesitate to engage…

Adrian is not only a top-notch expert, he is also a generous, authentic individual whose wisdom and business acumen are unsurpassed. I engaged Adrian to help my company when we felt ‘stuck’ and unable to move to the next level. Adrian – with his patience and humour and unrelenting thoroughness – got us going. I highly recommend Adrian to anyone who is looking to hire someone who is not only a leading expert in their field but also a values-driven human being!
Adrian took the time to learn about my team and incorporated this learning into his presentation. By doing so, he demonstrated the value of listening and discovery. The team came away inspired and committed to executing… it’s clear that Adrian’s message, or rather “story-telling”, clearly resonated.

I’ve been in sales and marketing for 30 years, trained by IBM but have rarely seen someone of Adrian’s caliber when it comes to selling to C-Level executives. He very simply deconstructed his process so that all could grasp his brilliance and he ably demonstrated how he was able to sell MILLIONS of $$ worth of products and services. One of the best (and nicest) sales trainers I’ve ever met.

We are very pleased with Whetstone’s services. Having been on the receiving end of other sales training, I was curious to see how their approach and guidance may differ. I was impressed to see that careful..

Adrian Davis is an OUTSTANDING Keynote Speaker! Adrian spoke to a captive capacity crowd at our AGM. Adrian’s powerful presentation was first-rate, insightful, and very well delivered. All in attendance thoroughly enjoyed his speech. The feedback we received was all very positive. It was a true pleasure having Adrian at our event, which turned out to be a HUGE success, thanks to Adrian.
Phil RussoPresident, Canadian Institute of Management, Toronto
I attended Adrian’s keynote at the Ingram Micro VTN event in Orlando. It was a well done and engaging presentation, and it continues to play back in my head. Adrian made solid points on the type of relationship you have with your client and the correlation to profit you can expect. If you have the opportunity to hear Adrian present, don’t miss it! And take a look at his website – good stuff!
Tom McDonaldPresident, NSI – Member Ingram Micro Advisory Council
The methodology Adrian (and the Whetstone team) uses is logical, intelligent, easy to understand, and more importantly,easy to implement.
Lara KoretskyHuman Resources Manager
Not only does Adrian have in-depth knowledge of sales, but he expertly presents that information so that listeners and watchers pay close attention. He always gives them actionable advice that they can apply to their sales and marketing efforts immediately. You do not get just theory when attending his events. Selling is Adrian’s passion, and he seems to love sharing what he knows with others so that they can benefit. The combination of enthusiasm, high level of expertise, and great presentation…
