Bob’s public speaking, seminar and consulting activities have taken him around the United States and to several foreign countries.
Clients consider Bob’s principal attributes to be a special ability to communicate across disciplines, to appraise markets and to create compelling messages about products.
Bob has presented to Congressmen, business and education executives, industrial and charitable organizations and university professors. He has appeared on programs with such well know personalities as PBS TV host Adam Smith, Senator William Roth and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Danny White. He has several published research papers and his writings have appeared in The Christian Science Monitor and “D” magazine.
He began his industrial career as a systems programmer and quickly rose to the position of systems software support manager. Eventually he simultaneously held the positions of V.P. of Technical Services and V.P. of Marketing in a prevalent, publicly traded, computer company.
In 1981 Bob formed his own company which specialized in products for the check, remittance and forms processing industries.
The company created most of its products in cooperation with its customers, giving rise to the reputation that it was “the company that listens”. The products, and the stories behind their creation, spread throughout the industry and created rapid company growth. What began as a 3-man startup, “the company that listens”, grew to a position of dominance with sales throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, the Middle East and South America.
In 2007 Bob, and his son Matt Manna, founded Manna Groups, a business and communication consultancy located in Dallas Texas.
