"Professor Katz is a true master of training sales, service, and all relevant soft skills and communication techniques.
He always finds the right words to excite and convince employees and managers from all levels, making sure to design a tailor-made package that allows a smart and didactically sound approach - from training, over individual coaching, on the job training, and strategic consulting. ”
"The Aicher Group has now been in existence for around 35 years - in the course of our organizational development, we were fortunate to be supported by Guy Katz.
From the very beginning, Eva & Guy stood by me with their heart, brain, and creative energy - sound advice and guidance helped me to make the right decisions for a sustainable organization in the field of medical care.
I would call on Guy's advice again at any time and can highly recommend him as a consultant."
‘Great negotiation training delivered by the ‘Flying Professor’ Dr. Guy Katz. I felt some training fatigue in my sales organization, but that changed to pure excitement after having attended his training sessions. Great Storytelling and meaningful learnings that can immediately be applied to achieve positive outcomes!’
“I can strongly recommend Professor Katz from three perspectives: personally as a human being, as a strategy consultant, and as a customer experience trainer.”
"It was a lot of fun to go through our change process together, you being a true professional and very pleasant in a rare way. Also, always attentive and available, the experience of working with you, and the training you gave in the premium product field, explain why you are the best at what you do!"
"The advice from Prof. Dr. Katz was very valuable when negotiating with the management of SAP in both Israel and Germany. Through simple tactics and rules, he helped us achieve much more than expected, learning our unique challenges and acting accordingly. Highly recommended for any challenging negotiation!"

Guy's Book "I'll do it!"
Starting at the beginning of the 20th century, the snowball we call "life" guided my family and me through many different stations: WWII, childhood in Israel and Germany, all the way to the Corona crisis of 2020. This book includes all those substantial stations and what I have learned from them for communication in general, and business in particular, using my favorite stories from consulting and training thousands of people worldwide: From the Barbershop in Munich to a motorcycle dealership in Moscow.
