What clients say 

Our clients are our best sales people. Here's what some of the thousands of happy clients have to say about their BOOM! experience.  


Sam Nolthenius 

Sales Manager, Dependable Laundry Solutions

"BOOM! doesn’t even begin to describe Trent and the sales he generated for our sales team. Not only was Trent able to turn around a training session in some ridiculously short time frames to meet our needs during the ‘Covid’ era - he also left our entire team crazily motivated, loaded with new tools, and closer to each other! Trents delivery was personable, likeable and infectious in the best way possible and all attendees commented that it was some of the best, most balanced training they have attended.  We can’t wait to host Trent again to ensure we’re never average!!!"


Dejan Wilcox 

Retention Manager, EnergyAustralia 

"WOW BOOM! is truly incredible. It not only opened my eyes to a whole new sales experience, it also helped me to overcome my personal fears of public speaking. Trent is a truly life changing facilitator, he helped me to break down barriers and explore a whole new me. A more confidence me that can energise a room, be myself and help me uncover my quirk. Thank you BOOM! for a truly life changing experience. 


Marcus Stephens

General Manager, Downer Group 

"I would highly recommend BOOM! Sales training to anyone that wants a learning experience that is fun, truly engaging and that also really makes a difference to how you build relationships and grow your business." 


Shereen El-dabbagh

Learning & Development Specialist, EnergyAustralia

“WOW!!! Talk about feeling energised. The training was so interactive and fun, i never wanted it to end. I found Trent was so engaging and he really is an inspiration. Get energised people, trust me you will not regret it."


Giselle Jesse

People Leader & Team Coach, Optus

“Trent is one powerhouse of energy with the ability to forge relationships and engage his audience. I have personally worked with Trent and have observed the positive outcomes with change management and an uplift in business growth within the finance industry. In addition Trent has demonstrated success within multiple industries with the BOOM sales strategy. I have enjoyed working on projects with Trent and is a very motivational speaker."


Stephen Jones 

CEO, Whitbread Insurance

"BOOM! delivered an "empowering" customised client engagement process and training program across our business. What I like about BOOM! sales training is the approach. I feel that differs from many other training programs, and I offer two words that I feel set it apart – “Commitment” and “Personal”. Commitment in the context that Trent undertakes a significant amount of lead-in work prior to the training to understand how our business operates. By investing in this process he was then able to tailor a far more personalised program that our team could readily connect with. This made it real, not text book." 


Gregg Harris 

GM Retail, NAB 

"If you want passion, expertise and strong business acumen then Trent is your man. Game changing tools and strategies to empower your team and develop their sales and service capability. Delivered in an engaging and enabling way as only Trent can. Amazing outcomes focused on the customer experience, being the best you can growing confidence and passion for what you do. Outstanding and highly recommended. BOOM!


Jodie Miles 

National Training Manager, PETstock

"PETstock had the pleasure of BOOM Sales delivering at our National Conference in sunny Port Douglas! Proud of our Culture at PETstock, Trent invested a lot of time getting to know our business, undertaking a number of phone interviews and a workshop with our successful store sales people across Aus and NZ. He challenges people to step out of their comfort zone, celebrating an individual’s personality and their quirks. Trent’s experience, knowledge, passion and energy make him a world class facilitator and I would not hesitate recommending Trent and BOOM Sales to any organisation."


Karen Carter 

Head of Small Business, ANZ Bank 

"Trent has now presented to my NSW/ACT team on 2 occasions. Trent's sales sessions are engaging, which in turn generate ideas and has the sales team focussed for the day, which is rare in any training/education session. Trent provides the why, the what and the how and ensures the audience participates and learns. Each time my team have had the privilege of spending time with Trent, they are motivated and fired up to out perform. They always take away a learning and implement it. Trent is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would thoroughly recommend Trent to assist with the motivation of any sales force or business." 


Glenn McLeod 

Sales Manager, JCB Equipment 

"We at Construction Equipment Australia discovered Trent and liked what we saw, his promotional videos in the area of sales are very inspirational and are a true reflection of his presentation style in person. We subsequently contracted Trent to present some non sales 101 sales philosophies to our internal and dealer sales team and I am sure every attendee came away with something to add to their sales skills tool kit bag. One of the learning's was that we are just as important as our customers. Would highly recommend Trent to any company that is looking for motivation and selling skills that are somewhat off the wall and are presented in an immersive, inclusive and above all a fun environment."


Glen Clinch

Sales Performance Manager, NAB

"Trent is an phenomenon in the area of Sales Performance from every dimension. Be it through the "Outlaw" approach, which is a revolutionary model for establishing a successful operating rhythm for sales excellence. Be it through the consulting capability of "Boom!" to tailor and deliver relevant and effective solutions specific to your business strategies and environments. Trent is a world class facilitator, with an approach to learning that engages, challenges and "dares" the participant to better themselves and their results, no matter how much of an expert they are already are."


Greg Doyle

Sales Manager, FROMM Australia 

"We have been working with Trent and Boom for over 12 months. We thought we were doing things pretty well but once we were introduced to Trent, we realised that we needed to go much deeper to realise our own and our customers potential. He certainly delivers his message with passion and makes each person he works with feel important. There's no doubt the people within our business have improved through Trent's involvement and we are striving to improve further as we implement some of Trent's idea's. He remains an active part as we continue working together. If you are looking to upskill and challenge how your staff and customers interact then you should definitely be speaking with Trent. "

Michael Jackson 

GM Strategic Development, Downer Group 

"Trent attended our business unit conference recently and his presentation on sales and relationships was fantastic. He gave us plenty of tools and thought provoking things to takeaway. If you're looking for energy and passion, and actual output, I would recommend using Trent and the Boom sales team."


Paul Freeman 

CEO, Medfin Finance at NAB 

"Trent delivered an energising session for our national sales team at our annual conference. He shared some great insights on what makes up the behaviours and character of high performance sales professionals and how to replicate the success of our top professionals for each member of the team. I know our newest members in particular found the session highly valuable and motivating"


Kylie Moncur 

National Marketing Manager, Publican Group 

"The time Trent spent with our sales team was invaluable. He provided our team with key skills and practical knowledge they could apply in their positions immediately. Trent's delivery is creative, accessible and on the whole lots of fun! The team are much more confident as a result of this training, I hope to run a follow up session in the near future."


Helen Christo 

HR Director, ABnote Australasia 

"Our company engaged Trent to present at our annual sales conference in February 2011. The objective over the allocated 4 hours was to align, motivate and enhance the knowledge and skills of our sales team. The session was interactive and informative. The feedback from the team was positive and as a result, we decided to engage Trent to conduct sales training across Australia and New Zealand. Trent invests a great deal of time undertanding the business to ensure the program hits the mark. His facilitation style is enjoyable and the practical concepts allow for immediate application. I recommend Trent as a professional and enaging sales trainer/facilitator."


Elio D'Amator

Executive Director, Lincoln Indicators

"Trent is someone passionate about delivering outcomes. Not just for the businesses he works with, but also for the customers we serve. Through empowering conversations, we are reminded everyday that ultimately we are in the people business, and therefore our customers success will translate to ours."


Kathy Kanellos

Sales & Marketing Manager, TP Orthodontics

"I found Trent's teaching style to be engaging, interactive and motivational. As a result of this, the sales team have gained a different perspective in approaching their customers and developing sales."


Dean Moon 

Business Protection Specialist, NAB 

"Outlaw is a sales and coaching book without the sales hype like other books in its genre. It's to the point and honest in a way that will challenge the way you not only act towards your customers but your peers and associates. It has made me revisit my own strategies and question some of my own redundant beliefs to great success. A must read for any aspiring sales person or people leader."


Roland Webber 

Global Business Manager, Weir

"Trent is not only personable, but has a deep understanding of Sales and the current ever changing market conditions. Trent will challenge your team to think beyond what is possible and achieve great results. Trent has published a couple of books well worth a read, they stand above most Sales literature and challenge the status quo. I would recommend Trent to anyone in need of an "outside the box" approach to Sales coaching, to achieve great results."


Louise Edward

Principal, Edwards Consulting 

"I am delighted to recommend Trent's first book The Naked Salesman. It is a refreshingly honest and practical approach to sales and written in a way which is uncomplicated and entertaining. Whether you have 1 or 20 years in business this book demonstates that if you have passion and a genuine interest in improving the lives of your clients you stand out. This book stands out too as it bares all and reinforces that honesty is the unique and invaluable tool of today's best salespeople."


Trent Fraser

CEO, Choice Hotels Asia Pacific

"We have been working with Trent Leyshan and BOOM! Sales for over 12 months now via our Victorian regional meetings and our National Franchisee Convention held on the Gold Coast late last year. Trent’s passion and enthusiasm for sales is truly infectious and his strategies around building deeper connections with clients and cutting through emotional road blocks are easily relatable and his expertise has been extremely valuable to our organisation – highly recommended!”


Richard Layton

Managing Director, Fromm Packaging Australia

"If you are a mid-size private company or a driven department head in a larger organisation who is prepared to improve, just go BOOM! Trent and his team revolutionised our thinking and helped us understand what we thought we knew and made us realise that we didn’t know what we should have. We have been able to revitalise what was a pretty staid sales team with ideas, concepts and accountability.Our management improved and so did our sales team, and the outcomes where the by-product of this. Happy to recommend but be prepared to look into yourself first and foremost as this is not a tick and flick exercise!"


Zoe Crettenden

Sales Delivery Manager, AGL 

"Never, ever have I been part of a training room with so much buzz and energy. There were cartwheels (literally), confessions, dancing and chanting!
Electric atmosphere." 


Mark Airo-Farulla

Sales Manager, ABCorp 

"We have been working with Trent and BOOM! for a few years now. The formal activity and methodology which Trent clearly articulated and has built on has been the Empathy Sales Process. I have personally benefited from these activities as it allows me to have a theoretical approach to the subject of being an exceptional Sales Executive....which at times can be non defined and subjective. Trent is always interested in what you do, how you do it and what makes you successful, he is always looking to learn and improve his own craft....keep up the great work Trent." 


Rom Revita 

Retention Manager, Lincoln Indicators

“During my sales career, I’ve been very fortunate to have received sales training from all different trainers. However, the most effective training I have ever received is from Trent at BOOM! Sales. His knowledge of the whole sales process is second to none. His enthusiasm in the delivery of his material will keep you interested, involved and asking for more. Whether you’re an employee wanting to master the art of sales, or an employer wanting to build an A-Grade sales team, I highly recommend Trent and the team at BOOM! Sales


Ken Stoilas

Head of Org Development & Learning, Wise Employment

"Besides being a joy to work with, Trent is a great person to work with who is able to present innovative and creative ideas/concepts and communicate the benefit of these. He has successfully trained for our company which has resulted in increased value. Though he was an asset to our Sales efforts, Trent was also extraordinarily helpful in making suggestions to improve operations in the future. In addition to facilitating effective training modules for sales representatives, Trent, inspired and motivated these employees. I highly recommend Trent for employment. He is a team player and would make a great asset." 


Anthony Brown

Board Director, APPA 

"APPA is the peak body for brand merchandise professionals in Australasia. Our major event Convex is attended by 1400 delegates each year in August. Our educational sessions lacked punch and relevance in recent years so this year we put considerable effort into finding engaging speakers. Trent's presentation to our delegates this year has changed the way people look at our educationals. His session was punchy, fun, relevant to our industry and highly valued by our members. I'd recommend Trent's sales presentation to any organisation looking to invigorate their team and tune into modern sales techniques." 


Kim Gibbons

Senior Consultant, Business Development, NAB 

"I have an RER who always asks for my feedback after every course, conference or workshop I attend and generally I advise him it was a waste of time. On Friday when he asked, I told him it was extremely effective. I told him that Trent is the first facilitator who kept everyone engaged despite the fact most of us had major issues with deals going on in the background and that a lot of the training he delivered was fresh and insightful. I strongly advised he look into it for his branches and gave him my copy of Outlaw to read up on. It is not my style to come back and recommend courses but I will be doing so to anyone who will listen to me. The feedback from my peers was much the same as mine"


Richard Davey

General Manager, Benetas Aged Care 

"Thanks Trent and BOOM!! Sales for three days of engaging training. We now have all the tools - it's up to us to implement them. "
