Dale Carnegie TN VIPs

All of our Dale Carnegie TN graduates are VIPs.

Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar was a Dale Carnegie alum but so is Doug Pratt, a local program analyst, who gained the skills and confidence to present ideas within his organization and unify the message. Dave Thomas of Wendy’s and Tom Monaghan of Dominoes Pizza went through Dale Carnegie training, but so do all the multi-unit supervisors of JenTex Deli, a franchise group for Jason’s Deli with operations in Tennessee and six other states. Rudy Leal, the group’s market developer, says Dale Carnegie leadership training helps keep the company’s message consistent.

Darek Bell, vice president of Bell Construction, is keeping the new Music City Convention Center on time and under budget. Roscoe High, a commercial broker with Southeast Venture, listened to his uncle and took the Dale Carnegie Course.

Melvin Kearney, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, took the course, too, after watching a friend’s transformation and attending his Dale Carnegie graduation. “Now, when I’m telling my story people can feel the wind,” Melvin says. “They can feel the rain when I’m telling my story because I have so much enthusiasm and excitement… “I could never do that before Dale Carnegie.”

Melvin, Roscoe, Rudy, Darek and Doug may not be famous Dale Carnegie graduates. But to us, they are superstars.
