Paul Tobey is an expert digital marketing trainer, best-selling author, thought leader, online marketer, engaging Speaker, Infusionsoft Award Winning Certified Partner and CEO of Training Business Pros, one of Canada’s leading digital marketing training and implementation companies. He has appeared on countless stages and interviews across North America.
But as much as he’s accomplished since launching Training Business Pros back in 2007, it took a devastating defeat from the music industry and several years of debt ridden hardship to cultivate a new more fruitful path. You see, for more than 20 years Paul Tobey was a professional jazz pianist. But while he had gained accolades the world over for his inventive style of performance, after touring 16 countries, releasing 8 albums and even being nominated for a Juno award, his recording contract with the American based label Arkadia records disintegrated in the aftermath of 9/11.
The sustained financial loss caused him to retreat to his hometown of Brantford Ontario where he began the formidable task of rebuilding a future for himself and his family. And what started out as a few well-chosen books by thought leaders such as Paulo Coelho, James Redfield and T. Harv Eker, led Paul to attend seminars, conferences and training sessions.
As his knowledge grew, so did his willingness to take risks. And one day, in an effort to truly know once-and-for-all his purpose and mission in life, he signed up to walk 900 kms across northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago, a journey that taught him patience, perseverance, self-discipline and most of all accountability. Armed with the knowledge of a thousand years of human history, Paul returned to Canada and continued to invest in himself with business leaders such as; Brian Klemmer, Tony Robbins, Larry Gilman, Kevin Wilke and T Harv Eker.
After launching Training Business Pros in the fall of 2007, Paul quickly gained a reputation for being a formidable speaker and thought leader in the digital marketing space. Undeterred by the .dot com bust he invested huge time and what money he could scrape together in marketing sheet music, piano lessons and eventually online marketing strategies. Since then Paul has shared the stage with countless world-class speakers like: Gary Vaynerchuck, Brian Tracy, Sandra Yancey, Robert Riopel, Marshawn Evans, Lisa Nichols, Jay Baer, Mitch Joel and countless others.
He’s been featured and interviewed on CTV, CBC, 680 News, City TV, Japan Times, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, Montreal Gazette to name just a few.
