Vince DiCecco

Your Personal Business Trainer’s founder and owner, Vince DiCecco, is a dynamic and sought-after business coach and seminar leader with a unique yet practical perspective on the art and science of selling, strategic planning, business development, and leadership and management subjects. 

ACCOMPLISHED PROFESSIONAL. As an award-winning professional with over 40 years of roll-up-your-sleeves experience in sales, marketing, new product development and training, Vince has made significant contributions to the success of two Fortune 200 companies, the United States Coast Guard and numerous small- to mid-sized businesses.  

THOUGHT-PROVOKING TRAINER. While he was the Senior Instructor at the US Coast Guard Leadership & Management School, Vince discovered and honed the below-the-surface motivations that make people productive and get missions accomplished.

Today, Vince sparks the passion within business owners and sales professionals that creates customer delight and loyalty, sharpens their competitive edge and delivers double-digit gains in profitability to an organization’s bottom line. He proves that when sales people take the risk of establishing genuine partnerships with clients and consistently do the right things at the right time, the success they can realize is boundless. 

SEMINAR LEADER and SPEAKER. He has been a featured speaker and panelist for several programs at Kennesaw State University’s Small Business Development Center, and delivered many seminars and webinars, pro bono, for the Acworth, Kennesaw and West Cobb Business Associations. Vince has also led educational presentations at the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo, the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Expo, the GlassBuild America Expo, and the International Sign Association (ISA) Conference. 

PUBLISHED AUTHOR. Since 1998, Vince has authored the monthly column, “Your Personal Business Trainer", in Printwear magazine. Each article targets a specific aspect of growing a business and offers valuable tips and techniques to whip it into shape. He has also written feature articles for Sign and Digital Graphics; RV Pro; Start Here, Awards & Engraving; and Window & Door magazines, as well as SGIA’s The Journal. 

Vince enjoys his home in Acworth, Georgia—a 2010 All-America City—with his wife of 23 years, Karin. He has three successful sons, three delightful daughters-in-law, and four beautiful grandchildren. He and Karin have fostered over 65 homeless dogs for Adopt a Golden Atlanta, and their Golden Retriever, Arlo, is presently working toward his AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and hopes to become a therapy dog someday.
