Marc really understands selling and how to get a room engaged with his message. We asked him to come to Metroland to speak with our Corporate Sales Team and he did an amazing job at helping us set the stage for change. He really took the time to get to know our company before speaking. Thank you again, Marc, for all the continued help. Can't wait to have you back
Marc is a passionate and knowledgeable speaker. Not only can he communicate how best to build and train teams by leading by example, he openly shares his on-the-ground experiences to drive home why leadership excellence is a key component in business sales success. His insight and passion resulted in one of our highest builder/developer attendance with the most positive remarks in our training calendar. I’m looking forward to having Marc speak again to BILD members in the future!
The Guelph Chamber was thrilled to have Marc share his Servant Leadership Philosophy with our members at our Breakfast Academy event. His talk was educational, entertaining and very thought provoking. I would highly recommend Marc as a knowledgeable and engaging keynote speaker!
This one is easy; Producing, positive words and positive comments for Marc! I have worked with Marc in two organizations and two provinces. From the onset of our relationship in Champs Sports, followed by Athletes World Bata Corp, one thing has been consistent throughout; Marc’s drive and passion to succeed! His Passion to learn, Passion to grow, Passion for people and Passion for results have been Marc’s mantra throughout his career. Marc has never been satisfied with settling for second best in anything that he does. His resume of accomplishments has continued to grow from day one to his current role with Fusion Homes. I have witnessed his remarkable journey and commend him for his personal development and passion for career and life. Marc has grown into a dynamic executive who places priority in developing successful results through developing successful teams. Marc always produced high level results while we played on and for the same Business Teams! " A Great Leader and an even Better Person "
I had the pleasure of working with Marc at MLSE and most recently invited him to guest lecture for an introduction to service management at Ryerson. As a work colleague I would consider Marc in the top ten percentile of people to work with. He is a passionate team player who is a disciplined leader of people. As a guest lecturer he was engaging and an excellent example of service excellence for an audience of 250 students. I look forward to collaborating with Marc in the future
What a pleasure it is for me to write a recommendation for Mr. Marc Petitpas. I have known Marc from the early years in Champs Sports. I have watched Marc grow from a young man into the seasoned Sales Executive he is today. The talent that exudes from this true gentleman is nothing but extraordinary. A consummate professional in every aspect of business, his strengths continued to get stronger and "if" there were any weaknesses "in his game" then he acknowledged them and sought guidance from his mentors to strengthen them. Marc is a tremendous leader, an exceptional motivator and is intuitive beyond his years. Knowing Marc for 16 years now I can tell you for a fact....in Marc's vocabulary, there is "no I" in team. If you were able to speak with any and all of the people and co-workers that Marc has mentored over the years I am most certain that one word would quickly be spoken to speak to Marc's business acumen and people skills, that word is phenomenal. Marc is plain and simple, a talent! He is a leader in every sense of the word. He is a gentleman and a tremendous family man. His business and personal skill set have come together to form this man we know as Marc Petitipas, and any organization or company would only benefit from having this man "Lead the Charge"
I’ve had the privilege and honor to work with Marc for 3 year at TPH and in those 3 years I’ve never seen him where he wasn’t on his “A-Game”. Every day he gives it his all. He’s mentored and led the management team to new possibilities – inspiring us to get out of our comfort zone and give it everything we got. He led by example. I’m grateful to have started my career in management under Marc’s leadership and guidance – truly an inspiration and an over class act
Marc is passionate about top performance. Marc's strength is people engagement. He inspires others to be their best by setting a strong example and engaging directly with his reports to follow thru in like fashion; improving and developing them to be their best, and performing at top levels. His passion is infectious and effective, and working near him causes one to want to be better.
As General Manager of BMO Field (& Ricoh Coliseum), Marc was able to inspire a group of people who hadn't worked together to embark on what seemed to be the impossible, and not only exceed expectations and deliver results, but to feel passion for the incredibly demanding task of opening a stadium. That group, as a result of Marc's leadership, became a cohesive unit and the best team I'd ever had the pleasure to work with. Marc is sharp, personable, and is constantly seeking opportunities to advance the business and the careers of those on his team. I will always appreciate his leadership and his guidance
