"Benjamin often hired me to present at conferences. In addition we would frequently meet at major conferences to talk through his long range plans for getting books in the hands of teachers and children and what my role would be in helping him accomplish his plan. In that capacity I also observed him meeting various publishers on the sales floor. It was obvious that Benjamin knew the capabilities of his company and how it could work together with the publishers to meet the goals of each. His energy knows no bounds when there is a task to be performed. He is perceptive and has amazing insight into people. Benjamin also possesses the rare leadership trait of knowing what he knows and finding people to fill in the blanks of the things he doesn't know."
Naomi Isaac-Simpson (UFT Teacher Centers)
"Benjamin Conn has provided superior service to meet my trade book/instructional needs. He goes out of his way to find what a client is looking for.

I highly recommend him and his company to anyone looking for a full service provider of trade books, literature and content area material." April 8, 2011
Steve Floyd (CEO StoryCove Books)
"I've had the good fortune to work with Ben in a number of roles (business owner, executive of an educational wholesaler and as an industry consultant) and I've learned more from him than probably anyone else in the industry. He is extremely knowledgeable about the complex world of selling to schools and educational institutions and his insights about the industry have been extremely helpful. Ben is not only very professional and candid about his perspective on specific topics, he also handles his relationships with a high degree of integrity. I am delighted to commend Ben and his professional expertise." April 10, 2011
