  • 1. Thank You, Alan Schonberg!! Alan  R.  Schonberg   1928  -­‐  2013  
  • 2. Alan  is  gone,  but  will  live  in  our  hearts  and  minds  forever.   On  Friday,  November  15th  2013,  07:45  am,  surrounded  by  his  nearest  and  dearest.   During  the  last  6  months  Alan  has  sent  us  some  e-­‐mails  concerning  his  health.  The  last  received   was  on  Sunday,  November  10th  2013.     I  decided  to  start  a  Facebook  Group  to  honour  Alan  –  and  could  not  think  of  a  beQer  name  than   “Thank  You,  Alan  Schonberg”.   The  response  has  been  overwhelming,  and  hopefully  has  helped  Carole  and  Alan’s  family  a  liQle   bit  during  some  very  tough  Wmes.   However  –  not  all  people  are  using  Facebook  and  social  media  very  much.  I  have  therefore   gathered  together  all  input  into  this  electronic  book,  which  you  are  free  to  download  and  share.   This  is  made  by  passion  and  gratefulness  to  an  outstanding  person:   THANK  YOU,  ALAN!                        Norway,  November  17th  2013                    Trond  Larsen     Thank You, Alan Schonberg!! Nov   17   2013  
  • 3. Nov   10   2013   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!
  • 4. Dear  All:     Here  is  my  current  health  status  and  the  last  update  I  will  dictate  personally.      I  wish  this  one  were  as  easy  to  write  as  were  the   earlier  ones,  but  quite  a  few  things  have  changed.         The  lung  cancer  has  spread  to  the  bones,  which  means  it  travels  more  virulently  and  rapidly  to  the  vital  organs.         Accordingly,  my  life  expectancy  has  been  reduced  from  6  months  to  approximately  3  months...but  who  knows,  could  be  less…   and  could  certainly  be  more.     The  hospital  recommended,  and  we  have  joined  with,  the  Hospice  of  the  Western  Reserve,  who  is  proving  to  be  invaluable  in   their  support  both  psychically,  Wme-­‐wise,  and  in  their  caring.       I've  also  embarked  on  a  new  regimen  of  medicaWon  -­‐-­‐  a  new  protocol,  designed  to  give  me  a  higher  quality  of  life  between  now   and  the  inevitable.     Happily,  part  of  the  medicaWon  is  an  appeWte  sWmulus,  so  I  am  eaWng  beQer.     The  dilemma  is  that  the  day  will  come,  but  we  don't  know  what  day  that  will  be.  Someone  in  the  family  will  noWfy  you  when  that   day  occurs,  however.     At  this  point,  I  want  to  acknowledge  the  love,  care  and  support  given  to  me  by  my  loving  wife,  Carole.    She  has  been  a  6-­‐month,   24/7  healthcare  provider  that  has  made  these  past  6  months  livable  and  bearable  for  me.     I  also  want  to  thank  my  family,  the  medical  community,  and  the  community  at  large  for  all  the  wonderful  support,  caring  and   concern  they  have  shown  me.     We  are  not  planning  on  the  tradiWonal  funeral  service,  Shiva  (period  of  mourning),  but  rather,  per  my  request,  I  will  be  turned   over  to  the  Case  Western  Reserve  University  Department  of  Anatomy,  donaWng  my  85  year-­‐old  body  (such  as  it  is)  to  medical   science.     My  family  will  then  set  a  date  and  venue  for  a  CelebraWon  of  Life  -­‐  Memorial,  to  which  of  course,  you  will  all  be  invited.     Once  again,  I  feel  so  self-­‐absorbed  in  sending  you  these  updates,  but  at  the  same  Wme  so  very  blessed  to  have  so  many  people  in   my  life  that  I  have  loved  and  whom  I  hope  have  loved  me.       Alan     P.S.  Please  understand  that  I  cannot  take  phone  calls,  or  respond  to  emails.              Alan  Schonberg        25157  Letchworth  Road        Beachwood,  Ohio  44122     Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 36. I’ve  heard  some  recruiters  try  to  simplify  our  business  in  order  that  non-­‐recruiters  might  understand  it:  “RecruiWng  is   merely  a  maQer  of  matching  the  right  company  from  the  yellow  pages  with  the  right  person  from  the  white  pages.  You   just  have  to  make  one  hell  of  a  lot  of  phone  calls  to  find  that  match.”  The  recruiWng  business  is  far  more  complicated  than   that  of  course,  but  it  does  underscore  the  importance  of  speaking  to  ‘one  hell  of  a  lot  of  people.’   Recrui.ng:  An  Intensely  Personal  Business   Being  a  recruiter  is  an  intensely  personal  business  and  an  intensely  personal  sales  job.  We  sell  two  parWes  with  different   needs  at  the  same  Wme.  We  sell  our  services  and  our  ability  to  find  top  talent  to  employers.  We  sell  our  services  and  our   ability  to  find  beQer  jobs  for  candidates.  Where  traveling  salesmen  on  the  road  may  visit  and  speak  to  six  to  eight   prospects  a  day,  recruiters  “travel  by  phone”  speaking  to  50  or  more  people  a  day.  Since  we  don’t  see  our  prospects  most   of  the  Wme,  we  must  be  excellent  listeners  and  masterful  communicators  using  just  the  phone.   The  recruiWng  business  gets  even  more  complicated  than  that.  It’s  not  just  about  conversaWons.  We  deal  with  people,  not   products.  So  things  change.  Almost  constantly.   Within  the  mind  of  a  candidate  or  employer,  there  exists  a  maelstrom  of  ever-­‐changing  thought,  emoWons,  desires,  needs,   fears,  and  moWvaWons.  Candidates  are  influenced  by  parents,  spouses,  children,  friends  and  co-­‐workers  with  regard  to  any   decision  about  making  a  career  change,  with  an  over-­‐riding  concern  of  avoiding  a  wrong  decision.   Employer’s  minds  are  influenced  too.  They  are  influenced  by  their  boss  (and  their  boss’s  boss);  budgets,  compeWWon,  and   even  the  fear  of  hiring  the  wrong  person  for  what  it  might  do  to  their  own  career.   So  understanding  people,  truly  understanding  them,  became  the  basis  for  how  the  business  of  MRI  got  its  foundaWon  –   from  listening,  truly  listening,  to  our  candidates  and  employers,  and  of  providing  them  the  highest  levels  of  professional   service.  Helping  people  navigate  through  big  decisions  affecWng  their  careers  and  their  businesses  is  the  very  thing  that   Alan  Schonberg  has  always  done  so  well  —  and  it  is  what  all  recruiters  do  each  and  every  day.     Thank You, Alan Schonberg!! Nov   11   2013  
  • 37. He’s  a  Listener   Anyone  who  has  met  Alan  will  tell  you  that  when  you  speak  to  him  he  truly  listens.  As  he  listens,  you  know  that  he  is   focused  on  you  and  only  you.  If  you  spoke  to  him  in  a  room  full  of  people,  you  would  think  you  are  the  only  person  in  the   room.  That’s  how  intently  he  listens.  His  sincere  interest  in  people,  and  to  be  of  service  to  them,  is  at  his  core.  If  asked,   he’d  go  out  of  his  way  to  provide  advice  or  guidance  to  someone.  He  likes  to  help  people  solve  problems.  Alan  also  has  an   uncanny  knack  of  not  only  remembering  the  names  of  the  people  he  deals  with,  but  he  remembers  their  spouse’s  names   and  their  children’s  names,  too.   Within  the  MRI  family  of  owners  and  their  employees,  Alan  has  always  made  himself  available.  People  call  him  from  all   over  the  world  to  get  his  counsel  on  everything  from  business  to  personal  maQers.  He  is  very  generous  with  his  Wme  and   he  is  looked  upon  as  an  incredibly  wise  man  with  deep  and  broad  knowledge  of  many  subjects  aside  from  just  business.  I   couldn’t  agree  more.   What  I’ve  Witnessed   I  have  witnessed  Alan’s  style  with  regard  to  helping  people  make  important  decisions.  I’ve  even  experienced  it  firsthand   myself.  When  presented  with  a  situaWon,  and  being  asked  what  might  be  the  best  way  to  handle  it,  Alan  will  reflect  for  a   moment  and  suggest  that  there  are  perhaps  three  possible  ways  to  approach  it.  He  doesn’t  tell  you  which  opWon  to  take.   He  will  lay  out  the  first  opWon  (including  its  pluses  or  minuses)  which  may  sound  like  a  good  resoluWon.  Then  he  follows  it   by  a  second  opWon,  which  may  sound  to  be  a  liQle  beQer,  including  its  own  posiWves  and  negaWves.  When  he  gets  to  the   third  opWon  and  explains  it,  you  soon  realize  on  your  own  it  is  apparent  that  this  is  the  best  opWon  of  all.   Alan  helps  you  realize  this  and  he  supports  you  in  choosing  this  course  of  acWon  by  empowering  you  to  take  responsibility   for  it.  He  helps  you  overcome  your  fear  of  making  the  wrong  decision.  I’ve  never  seen  this  process  done  by  anyone  else  so   arqully.  It  is  far  more  common  to  hear  someone  tell  you  what  to  do,  rather  than  help  you  weigh  all  the  opWons  and  allow   you  to  make  your  own  decision.   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 38. Pioneer  of  Employer  Paid  Fees   In  my  opinion,  Alan  is  the  consummate  sales  professional.  He  built  MRI  though  his  art  of  selling.  He  was  masterful  in   how  he  led  the  franchisees  into  new  horizons  of  recruiWng.  He  was  the  first  to  pioneer  taking  the  business  from  APF   (Applicant  Paid  Fees)  to  enWrely  EPF  (Employer  Paid  Fees)  in  the  1960’s  and  the  enWre  recruitment  industry  followed.   He  coined  the  phrase  and  the  methodology  of  “conWngency  search,”  and  the  enWre  industry  followed.  He  oversaw  and   helped  to  evolve  the  most  sophisWcated  training  programs  in  the  industry  –  from  paper  manuals  to  VCR  training  tapes,   to  broadcast  TV/satellite  training,  to  videoconferencing  training  in  each  office,  to  DVDs  and  ulWmately  into  online   training  courses  with  MRI  University  and  an  online  Video  Vault  of  thousands  of  hours  of  training  sessions  and  lectures   on  best  pracWces.  And  so  much  more,  space  will  not  allow  me  to  detail  it  all.   What  makes  Alan  so  special  is  that  he  makes  other  people  feel  special.  He  makes  you  feel  beQer  and  bigger.  He  makes   everyone  feel  comfortable,  because  he  has  a  way  with  people  through  his  warm  and  caring  personality.  He  finds   conversaWon  with  people  from  all  walks  of  life  easy,  and  as  a  result,  people  are  drawn  to  him  and  they  trust  him.  As   surgeons  have  skilled  hands,  as  accountants  have  knowledge  of  tax  law,  as  lawyers  have  knowledge  of  the  law,  Alan’s   stock  in  trade  is  his  uncanny  ability  to  relate  to  people.   Family  Man   Beyond  his  many  business  and  philanthropic  achievements,  Alan  is  most  proud  of  his  blended  family  of  seven  adult   children,  fourteen  grandchildren  and  one  great  grandchild,  with  another  on  the  way  this  fall.  Generous  with  his  Wme   for  people  in  the  MRI  family,  Alan  is  most  generous  with  his  Wme  for  his  family,  orchestraWng  magnificent  family  trips   or  flying  from  coast  to  coast  to  aQend  graduaWon  ceremonies  or  weddings  of  his  grandchildren,  birthday  celebraWons,   or  just  a  family  visit.  He  is  loved  by  everyone  in  his  family,  but  Alan  is  also  loved  by  the  thousands  of  members  of  the   MRI  family  as  well.   Alan  is  a  Renaissance  man.  A  man  for  all  seasons.  I  have  long  respected,  admired  and  loved  him.   I  am  most  proud  to  say  I  am  his  son-­‐in-­‐law.   Peter  C.  Co8on  is  president  of  Best  Sales  Talent,  Inc.  specializing  in  the   search,  recruitment  and  placement  of  sales,  sales  management  and   marke>ng  talent.  Peter  writes  a  blog  for  his  website.  You  can  follow   him  on  Twi8er  @pco8on   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

From  Doug  Bugie,  founder  of  Humana  InternaWonal  (MRI  Worldwide):   GreeWngs  Friends  and  Colleagues,  a  truly  great  and  good  man  is  passing  very  soon,  Alan  Schonberg.  His  life  was     about  one  thing,  liting  people  up.  He  gave  far  more  than  he  received  in  almost  superhuman  quanWWes,  not  only     in  recruitment,  but  across  many  fields  of  acWvity.       Some  of  you  have  already  dropped  me  a  note  on  this-­‐-­‐please  do  it  again  through  this  link  below  in  whatever  words    you  choose.  It  will  mean  a  great  deal  to  the  global  recruitment  community  most  importantly  his  Family,  who  will     never  have  met  most  of  you,  but  need  to  know  you  are  here  in  support,  they  need  to  know  he  was  there  for  you.       A  truly  inspiring  Facebook  group  has  emerged  through  the  efforts  of  MRIWorldWide  (Humana)  Trond  Larsen  of  Scandinavia.       There  is  no  one  even  close  in  my  life  over  the  past  40  years  like  Alan  who  gave  me  more  guidance,  real  support    and  most  importantly   the    values  that  we  have  all  brought  and  bring  to  the  recruitment  industry,  or  if  not  in  it  directly,  into  our  working  and  personal  lives.       I  know  you  wouldn't  want  to  miss  the    opportunity  to  send  a  final  message  to  Alan  ,  his  Family  and  to  the  global  recruitment  industry   who  will  be  reading  this.       Personally  ,  I  will  miss  him  like  a  great  spiritual  father,  but  also,  just  a  very  down  to  earth,  funny,  warm  caring  human  being  (who  was   always  there  for  me)    who  lited  thousands  to  where  they  felt  and  acted  like  they  were  '10  feet  tall'  as  he'd  like  to  say.  He  literally   invented  the  broad-­‐based  search  industry  through  which    we    propelled    ourselves  into  global  markets,  posiWvely  affecWng  literally   tens  of  thousands  of  lives  ,  franchise  owners,  companies  and  candidates  and  helping  create  beQer  lives  for  our  Families  in  the  process.           Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 65. I  am  glad  we  have  taken  that  journey  together  one  way  or  another,  all  of  us  ,  including  knowing  Alan.  I  have  to   say  ,  'it  ain't  over  yet'  for  life's  wonderful  journey  ahead  even  with  all  its    twists  and  turns.  So  many  of  you  are  sWll   making  great  things  happen  or  enjoying  the  fruits  of  your  success  (and  sWll  making  things  happen!)    big  Wme.      In   fact  here  in  Cleveland,  there  will  eventually  be    CelebraWon  of  Alan's  Life,  again  to  lit  people  up,not  sadden   them,  once  this  becomes  appropriate.  The  message:  Let's  move  ever    forward!       Alan  well  be  gone  in  maQer  of  days,  but  his  kindness  and  guidance  will  live  on  within  the  hearts  and    minds  of  too   many  to  count  both  inside  and  outside  recruitment.       Please  add  your  thoughts.  I  think  the  world  should  know  outside  the  USA  (with  the  excepWon  of  Trond  being  good   enough  and  wise  enough  to  get  this  started)  ,  that  Alan  ma#ered,  he  had  an  impact  on  lives  on  a  global  scale  and   that  his  final  word,  one  word,  in  his  reWrement  was  'Care'.         Please  think  about  people  you  know  who  would  want  to  see  this,  to  know  this  and  spread  the  word  today  how  to   send  their  thoughts  via  Facebook  with  the  aQachment  below.  I  have  only  sent  this    to  a  core  group.   I  have  purposely  blind  copied  each  of    you  on  this  to  protect  privacy,  but  you  know  who  you  are-­‐-­‐you're  all  sWll  part   of  the  same  Family  we  created  long  ago  and  the  echoes  keep  moving  ever  outward.       This  Facebook  grouping  has  hardly  penetrated    the  breadth  of  the  USA  much  less  the  world.       This  can't  stand   Please  take  a  few  moments  of  reflecWon  and    send  a  message  far  and  wide  on  what  you  thought  of  him  and  what   he  stood  for.  People  like  Alan  don't  come  along  very  oten  in  life...        Your  friend  now  and  always,  Doug  Bugie       Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 87. Anyway,  I  had  planned  to  do  the  same  this  year  at  Global  but  try  as  Alan  did,  his  doctors  refused  to  let  him   fly…….so,  I  brought  him  in  by  surprise  on  the  big  screen  via  skype  in  the  main  ballroom…..(I  will  have  to  get  you  the   link  to  watch…….he  was  seated  at  his  computer,  (Carole  in  the  background)  and  he  proceeds  to  tell  everyone,  “they   are  the  right  place,  at  the  right  Wme,  with  the  right  company!!  (even  with  his  very  frail  voice)…..he  was  sensaWonal   as  always…..I  of  course,  was  bursWng  with  pride…..here  is  our  friend,  full  of  cancer,  85  years  old,  failing  voice  and  he   let  them  know  what  he  was  thinking….you  could  have  heard  a  pin  drop….   I  have  at  least  100  stories  about  Alan  with  each  one  being  funnier  (or  more  meaningful  than  the  previous)……. (working  closely  with  him  for  all  of  these  years  you  get  to  see  it  first  hand)…..when  we  talked  a  few  days  ago  (we   were  going  to  have  lunch  again  but  he  was  just  too  faWgued)….he  let  me  know  how  the  cancer  had  progressed  and   he  was  on  to  the  next  stage  in  his  journey…..fully  confident  it  was  okay  with  him  and  was  prepared  for  what  was  to   come……..I  then  reminded  him  about  PaceseQer  next  March  and  reminded  him  about  how  I  needed  he  and  Carole   there…..I  swear  Doug….he  said,  “Ah  GW….what  are  the  dates  again  and  let  me  get  my  calendar”….I  cried…..   I  guess  I  knew  this  day  would  someday  come…..you  stated  it  so  appropriately,  ater  you  spoke  to  Alan,  no  maQer   what  was  going  on  in  your  life,  you  knew  it  would  be  okay…….and  you  are  right….his  spirit  will  live  within  us   forever….   Yes,  sadly  we  will  be  together  at  the  CelebraWon  but  do  look  forward  to  reconnecWng  and  geung  caught  up  with   you…..he  spoke  of  you  all  the  Wme  Doug….how  proud  he  was  and  is  of  you  and  your  accomplishments….always  said   when  I  would  ask,  “GW,  Doug  is  doing  beauWfully,  you  wouldn’t  believe  how  well!”…..(you  can  hearing  him  saying  it   I  know…’     One  last  one….Henri  and  I  are  flying  with  Alan  and  Carole  somewhere  (we  traveled  a  good  deal  together  as  he  got   older)…..anyway,  they  get  into  a  liQle  dispute  about  something  and  Alan  proclaims,  “Carole,  please,  please,  you   must  listen  to  me……how  am  able  to  control  your  thinking  if  you  won’t  listen  to  me!!!”…..We  laughed  for  hours  and   sWll  do  today…..          All  the  best,        GW       Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 88. I  was  thinking  the  other  day….I  have  publically  introduced  Alan  at  least  500  Wmes  or  more  on  stages  or  events   around  the  world..…..each  Wme  it  was  the  greatest  honor  of  my  life….I  would  always  say….”Once  upon  a       Nov   Wme…..there  was  a  man  named  Alan  R.  Schonberg…….but  only  once…”     14   Alan  provided  hope  to  everyone  he  touched…..simply  put,  he  gave  you  hope….no  maQer  the  obstacles  you  were   facing…..he  would  say,  “put  one  foot  in  front  of  the  other  and  begin  walking…..”  And….as  we  face  a  certain  future   2013   without  Alan….I  plan  on  doing  just  that…..he  wants  it  that  way  of  course….   I  would  be  fine  if  you  would  want  to  post  my  email  to  you  Doug……(I  have  shared  with  Alan  what  he  has  meant  to   me…..fairly  personal  and  things  only  he  would  understand).   One  last  one  you  might  enjoy  (you  know  I  have  dozens  and  dozens  of  stories)…..Alan  loved  to  use  the  word   “glorious”  when  he  was  delivering  his  moWvaWon  welcome  messages  from  the  stage…..as  in  “  next  year  is  going  to   be  “glorious”  beyond  our  wildest  dreams!  We  are  going  to  shoot  to  the  moon!  Let’s  work  together  because  it  will  be   glorious!!  …  (by  the  way,  one  Wme  he  caught  me  doing  an  imitaWon  of  him.…..I  turned  around  and  there  he   was….Alan  said,  “Ah  GW,  how  long  have  you  been  doing  an  imitaWon  of  me?”  I  said,  “gee  Alan,  I  didn’t  know  you   were  there…..not  too  long….”,  to  which  he  replied,  “  not  very  well  either  but  I  like  it…..work  on  it  a  liQle  bit…”     Anyway,  just  prior  to  one  of  his  welcome  talks  many  years  ago,  I  bet  several  long  Wme  MRI  Family  members  how  many  Wmes  Alan     would  use  the  word  glorious  in  his  opening  remarks….(the  number  was  5…..)  As  he  got  ready  to  speak,  I  shared  the  bet  and  number  of     Wmes…..he  smiled  and  winked…….he  hit  all  5  and  got  a  standing  ovaWon  as  usual….come  to  think  of  it….ARS  got  a  standing  ovaWon   every  Wme  I  introduced  him  the  last  25  plus  years….anywhere  in  the  world!   Hope….courage….character…..respect….always  said  and  did  the  right  thing….that  is  Alan…..only  one….we  are  so,  so  fortunate….     All  the  best,   GW          (P.S……I  have  been  calling  his  home  number  for  close  to  30  years….the  number  is  the  same….never  changed  in  30        years….however,  every  Wme  Alan  would  leave  me  a  message….he  would  leave  his  home  number….I  laughed  every        single  Wme....)   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 95. Nov   14   2013   Hi  Alan,     I  do  not  know  what  year  Doug  first  introduced  me  to  you.  I  know  I  had  more  hair!!!.  I  do  however,  remember  the   occasion.     We  had  the  honour  of  siung  down  for  breakfast  with  you  in  a  London  Hotel  just  off  Park  Lane.     We  broke  bread  together  (well  a  full  english  breakfast  for  myself  I  was  growing  lad)  whilst  Kevin  Cox,  Guy  Lean,   Gary  Wilson,  and  Richard  Morgan  and  myself  asked  you  quesWons  about  your  vision,  the  business,  search,   franchising,  your  family  and  your  extended  MRI  Family.   I'd  heard  so  much  about  you  from  Doug  who  drove  us  all  crazy  in  those  early  days  challenging  us  to  live  the  vision   that  you  created.  Doug  tells  me  he  has  mellowed,  that  is  BS!  You  ingrained  in  him  your  own  work  ethic  and  it   permeated  across  geographic  and  cultural  boundaries.   Ater  I'd  finished  my  fith  round  of  toast  and  the  mushrooms  someone  could  not  finish.  We  asked  you  what  kept   you  going  and  other  successful  people  in  this  business  going.  Your  answer?   "I  care!  You  have  to  care!  Care  about  their  lives.  Care  about  their  families  (professionally  and  personally).  If  you  do   not  care!  Then  find  something  you  do  care  about  because  this  business  will  not  work  for  you”.   This  message  that  you  delivered  has  provided  me  with  a  firm  foundaWon  to  base  many  decisions  that  have   ulWmately  been  the  correct  ones  using  this  as  a  litmus  test.   There  are  thousands  of  people  that  Care  about  you  Alan.  I'm  just  another  lucky  individual  that  has  benefited  from   working  in  search,  working  in  franchising  and  working  with  many  of  the  talented  individuals  that  exist  in  the   networks  you  created.  Thanks  for  that  breakfast  and  your  wise  words.     Before  I  sign  off  can  I  ask  you  a  small  favour?  Could  you  remind  GW  that  he  sWll  owes  me  a  Steak  "n"  Eggs   breakfast!!       Thank  you.   John   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 109. Nov   15   2013   Dear  Alan,   Not  sure  what  to  say  during  Wmes  like  this…some  are  ‘quotes’,  adjecWves  and  personal  recollecWons  to  share  with  you  about  you:   “If  you  have  a  talent,  that’s  God’s  git  to  you.  If  you  use  that  talent,  that’s  your  git  to  God”  (Red  Skelton)  You  have  obviously  used   your  talent  as  a  git  to  God  and  in  using  that  talent,  you’ve  given  a  git  to  others.     “Vision  is  the  ability  to  see  potenWal  in  what  others  overlook”  (Pastor  Rick  Warren)   My  perspecWve  of  your  creaWng  the  conWngency  recruiWng  business  and  founding  MRI.   I  personally  think  your  vision  is  also  the  ability  to  see  potenWal  in  other  people  that  they  don’t  see  in  themselves.   “Class  Act”  –  a  person  who  is  generous  and  does  nice  things  for  others.  I  was  introduced  to  you  in  1996  by  Jane  PrenWce  at  my  1st   Regional  MeeWng  in  Las  Vegas.  (I  was  with  MRI  maybe  2  months).  You  shook  my  hand  and  said  in  a  very  sincere  and  meaningful   way…“It’s  good  to  have  you,  welcome  aboard”  I  thought,  “Wow!”,  how  cool  is  this…the  Founder  &  CEO  of  this  firm  took  his  Wme  to   greet  me.  You  had  a  lot  of  people  around  you  at  the  Wme  but  I  can  sWll  see  you  breaking  away  from  them  to  shake  my  hand.   The  original  AE  Basic  Training  video  series  (with  “Mary  Ann”  and  Jerry  Hill  having  his  challenges  of  pronouncing  words  that  had  the   leQer  “s”  in  it)  was  invaluable  to  me.  This  was  the  “playbook”  and  I  think  I  wore  out  our  VCR  player  and  the  videos  from  watching   them  over  &  over.  When  a  prospecWve  employer  would  say  they  had  a  need,  or  I  got  a  send-­‐out  or  offer,  I’d  be  saying  to  myself…   “What  do  I  now??!!”  and  I  could  always  go  back  and  re-­‐watch  them  and  the  secWons  I  needed  help  with.     The  ongoing  AE  training  program  you  created  taught  me  skills  to  help  in  the  “game  of  recruiWng”  but  more  importantly…the  “game  of   life”.  I  ,  "Thank  You"  for  being  so  commiQed  &  passionate  about  wanWng  others  to  succeed.   I  hope  you  will  be  able  to  see  this  message  so  you  know  you  have  made  a  posiWve  impact  and  difference  in  my  life.     Sincerely  &  Respecqully….,  “God  Bless”  Todd  Todd  Provost   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

From  Kevin  Cox,  head  of  franchising  in  Humana,  working  with  Doug  Bugie,  we  have  received  the  following:   "I  read  the  Fordyce  leQer  a  few  months  back  and  sent  an  email  to  Peter  then  -­‐  it  is  a  very  sad  Wme  when  one  so   great  passes  -­‐  and  it  must  be  even  more  so  for  you  as  I  know  what  he  meant  to  you  and  how  close  you  have  always   been.     Way  back  in  the  early  ’90’s,  having  joined  a  very  small  company  in  London  run  by  a  strange  American  from  the   mid-­‐west  who  had  chosen  to  seQle  in  London  and  build  the  word  that  is  recruitment  franchising  on  a  global  basis,  I   heard  about  this  mythical  being  called  Alan  Schonberg.  Over  the  years,  that  strange  American  -­‐  Doug  Bugie  -­‐  not   only  was  my  boss  but  became  a  friend  too  and  he  so  oten  talked  about  his  mentor,  Alan,  and  what  he  had  done   for  him  over  the  years  and,  more  importantly,  what  he  had  taught  him  about  working  with  people  with  humanity   and  humility  and  never  forgeung  that  they,  too,  had  a  soul  and  feelings.  These  mantras  from  Alan  were  disWlled  in   me  via  Doug  but  it  was  not  for  many  years  unWl  I  met  Alan,  himself.  I  have  always  been  amazed  that  one  so  busy   could  have  all  the  Wme  in  the  world  for  you  and  never  appeared  to  stop  giving  of  himself  to  anyone.     Over  the  years  MRI  has  changed  and  with  it  ,  unfortunately,  some  of  Alan's  founding  principles  have  been  lost  in   the  name  of  profit  and  progress  -­‐  however,  for  those  people’s  lives  that  Alan  touched,  they  will  remain  touched   and  his  memory  revered.     Thank  you  Alan  for  mentoring  my  mentor!!!!"   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 139. Nov   16   2013   Ater  reading  through  the  many  posts  on  here  from  people  in  the  MRI  Family,  I  wanted  to  pass  on  my  condolences  to  Alan's   family  and  friends.     I  first  met  Mr  Schonberg  when  I  was  just  13.  It  was  at  paceseQer  in  Hawaii,  and  I'd  just  had  a  major  operaWon  on  my  stomach.     Ater  having  lunch  with  my  mum,  Alan  soon  learnt  about  this  and  saw  me  by  the  pool.  He  was  asking  me  about  myself,  my   interests,  what  I  wanted  to  do  when  I  was  older  and  how  my  24  hour  trip  from  Manchester  to  Hawaii  was!   Alan  taught  and  guided  my  mum,  and  many  of  you  in  ways  I'm  sure  you'll  be  forever  grateful,  but  by  doing  that,  he  also  guided   all  of  your  children.     Alan  always  remembered  my  sister  and  I's  names,  and  always  made  an  effort  to  talk  with  us  and  see  how  we  were  geung  on   since  we  last  saw  him.     He  taught  my  mum  Sandra  Hill  to  live  her  dreams,  but  he  also  taught  me  this  too.  When  I  told  him  at  13  that  I  wanted  to  be  a   journalist,  he  didn't  even  flinch,  he  believed  in  me  from  the  start,  just  like  he  believed  in  recruitment  and  his  MRI  Family.  I   would  just  like  to  thank  Alan  for  everything  he  taught  me,  and  something  he  said  to  me  will  always  sWck  with  me:   "Love  what  you  do,  and  do  what  you  love.  Never  give  up,  and  you  will  live  your  dream”   Thank  you  Mr  Schonberg.  I'll  miss  you  in  the  Dominican!  Rest  in  peace,  Melanie  x   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!

  • 145. Nov   16   2013   I  first  met  Alan  &  Carol  waaaaay  back  in  the  80's  at  a  Northeastern  Regional  meeWng.  His  love  for  the  business  was  amazing,  and   inspiring.  We  had  quite  a  wonderful  conversaWon  about  the  way  we  as  recruiters  were  uniquely  posiWoned  to  help  both  our   clients  and  our  candidates.  I  never  forgot  that,  and  it  became  a  litmus  test  for  every  deal  I  did.  It  seems  like  every  Wme  we  were   gathered,  he  made  Wme  for  a  chat.  And  I  always  learned  a  bit.  He  and  Carol  were  such  a  gracious  couple,  and  always  made  me   feel  welcome  at  the  table.  Carol,  I  hope  your  many  happy  memories  will  soon  take  the  place  of  the  grief  you  feel  today.  Hugs  &   Prayers  for  you  &  your  family  from  Portland.     When  somebody  dies,  a  cloud  turns  into  an  angel  and  flies  up  to  tell  God  to  put  another  flower  on  a  pillow.   A  bird  gives  the  message  back  to  the  world,  and  sings  a  silent  prayer  that  makes  the  rain  cry.   People  disappear,  but  they  never  really  go  away.   The  spirits  up  there  put  the  sun  to  bed,  wake  up  grass,  and  spin  the  earth  in  dizzy  circles.   SomeWmes  you  can  see  them  dancing  in  a  cloud  during  the  day-­‐Wme,     when  they're  supposed  to  be  sleeping.   They  paint  the  rainbows  and  also  the  sunsets  and  make  waves  splash  and  tug  at  the  Wde.   They  toss  shooWng  stars  and  listen  to  Wishes.     And  when  they  sing  wind-­‐  songs,     they  whisper  to  us,  don't  miss  me  too  much.     The  view  is  nice  and  I'm  doing  just  fine.   Thank You, Alan Schonberg!!
