Our Founder and CEO, Gary Valkenburg, was actually a restaurant/retail trainer for nearly 20 years. As Gary spent time traveling the world opening restaurants and training staff, he realized there was really no control or consistency of locations at a head office level. Each location and every general manager was doing whatever they wanted and not following company policies and standards. That is where Gary came up with idea and need for World Manager. He set out to provide the most user friendly platform in the market for both employees and administrators. The goal, was to create a platform to allow every CEO to train, track and communicate with employees, plus control company compliance nationally and globally.
One of Gary’s specialties in training was teaching employees sales and up-selling skills. When he started World Manager he made a promise that he would not up-sell his clients, and would not lock them into the standard long term contracts.
“In my 20 years of training one of the key goals was to teach staff how to up-sell. Also, a common revenue generating technique in business is to ‘increase your wallet share by selling more to your existing clients’. I was so tired of the industry sales techniques and the long term contracts, I set out to break the traditions and be the training industry’s biggest market disruptor.” – Gary Valkenburg
