Hello, my name is Henry DeVries, and I have the honor
of leading the “Marketing With a Book” session. As a
ghostwriter and editor for consultants, I have
worked on 50 book projects in the last six years.
My proposals have earned five-figure advances for
clients. My latest best-selling book, How to
Close A Deal Like Warren Buffett, co-authored with
Vistage speaker Tom Searcy and published by
McGraw-Hill in November of 2012, won multiple
“Best Business Books” of the year awards and
achieved numerous Amazon #1 Best Seller Rankings,
* #1 in Books > Business & Investing >
Management & Leadership > Negotiating
* #1 in Books > Business & Investing > Skills
* #1 in Books > Business & Investing > Small
Business & Entrepreneurship > Entrepreneurship
* #1 in Books > Business & Investing > Marketing
& Sales > Sales & Selling
I have published with the top five publishers,
privately published, independently published and
association published, and personally know the
dos and don’ts of all current publishing
I also have relationships with some of the most
respected agents in the business and have launched
and supported columns in Forbes.com, Inc.com,
metro daily newspapers and CBS MoneyWatch helping
clients to gain credibility, free publicity and
I also teach marketing at the University of California,
San Diego and serve as the assistant dean for continuing education.
Leading the “Marketing With a Speech” portion
of the summit is Mark LeBlanc, past president of
the National Speakers Association and author of
the underground best-seller Growing Your Business
and his latest book Never Be the Same. He is an
expert on speaking more and for higher fees.
He runs Small Business Success and works with and
speaks for groups of business owners who want to
grow and sell more products and services.

Summit Attendees Rave
“For most consultants completing a book is on
the top of their ‘Goals and Things To-Do’
List, (how many years has it been on YOURS?) and
Henry can help you get it done in record time.”
— Dean Minuto, Vistage speaker and author of The One-Page Sales Coach*
“I do not know where else I could have learned
so much in such a short time.”
— Alok Kalia, MD,
Bluebonnet Health, Vistage speaker and author of
Don’t Take Dieting Advice from a Skinny Person
“Henry helped us publish our book, showed us
marketing techniques and how to leverage a book.
Our clients constantly mention how this one item
has differentiated us from our competition.”
— Brad Remillard, Impact Hiring Solutions, Vistage
speaker and co-author of You’re Not the Person I
In the past we have charged $795 for this summit. We have seats for a limited number of guests. In the past these events and filled up and we have had a waiting list.
I have a lot of consultants, speakers and authors on my list.
Don’t delay because when the few seats are claimed, the opportunity to attend is lost.
I hope to see you at the summit. If you want to attend, then please send an email to email@example.com and let’s talk about it.
No cost. No selling. No kidding.
