Brad McDonald - Guest Speaker

National Coach and Trainer for Sandler Training

Brad McDonald, at the early age of twelve, attended a Scottish Boys Boarding School where the discipline routine included daily whippings (really), then he spent four years at a Catholic Boys Military High School where retired WWII Army Sergeants taught him to march with a rifle at the age of 15. Subsequently, he spent four years of self imposed confinement at a federal institution on the banks of the Severn River in Annapolis, Maryland, resulting in the achievement of his life long dream - spending the next twenty years mostly underwater all over the world with one hundred other men in a small steel tube. Brad's Navy career involved service aboard five submarines and culminated in command of a US Navy attack submarine, USS L. MENDEL RIVERS SSN686. (Thank you for your service Brad!) None of these experiences prepared Brad for the emotional trauma of his next career - SALES. But he claims that six months of Sandler Training was so effective in solving his sales anxieties that he opened a Sandler franchise in 2004. Brad now serves as a national coach and trainer for Sandler Systems Headquarters in Owings Mills, Maryland.
