We had many, many comments from our attendees that you were one of the best Keynotes we have had EVER! I knew it was a real success when there weren’t any books left behind, (never seen that before) and we had to refresh the notepads at break, because at least half the people had taken their entire notepad with them when they left for break. I hope we can work together at another event in the future.
I attribute much of your success at our conference to our numerous conversations prior to the conference and your ability to customize your presentation to our members’ needs. Additionally, you were well received by all because of your willingness to interact with our members before your presentation.
I wholeheartedly recommend you to any future group looking for an 'all-in', energetic, and interactive keynote presentation from a friendly and polished speaker.
Gary did an outstanding job. A ten on a scale of ten.
The global pandemic has created a period of change that is by all accounts disruptive, unrelenting, and at times completely debilitating. Leaders, teams and individual contributors alike are in uncharted waters and the one integral, unifying thread is our humanity. We are in a place where we need to look at how this change is affecting us as individuals first, and then translate that change into our respective roles. While we cannot always choose what change will come in our path, with the right mindset and strategies, we can choose how to move forward. This is Dr. Gary Bradt’s goal, as he shares the Five Fundamental Choices that change presents us with, and that how you choose to go forward will make a bigger impact on your life than the change itself.

WHAT: A 60-min virtual deep dive with Gary and your leadership and your people. Gary will work with your leadership to orchestrate a conversation around your organization’s challenges and/or goals to create an actionable strategy for next steps.
AUDIENCE: This conversation is perfect for organizations that want an engaging experience to share how they are leading during this time of disruption and keeping employee and customer needs top of mind. The conversation can be for internal teams or presented externally for customer engagement.
WHY GARY: This is a conversation that Gary would lead, which is invaluable given his years of consulting C-Suite leaders on business strategies for change and times of disruption.
WHAT: 90-Minute Virtual Presentation that consists of Gary delivering 30min of content based on client goals, with 30min of breakout engagement sessions (depending on audience size) and follow-up with Q&A guided by Gary and a member of the leadership team.
AUDIENCE: The viewing audience can be internal company leaders, managers and individual contributors, or this can be offered to your direct clients.
WHY GARY: As a psychologist and respected Author on Change, Gary’s content is compelling because of his down-to-earth delivery of real stories and research-based strategies for how you can take control and create more well-being and contentment even in these trying times. As a leadership strategist and consultant he connects the narratives with actionable strategies for immediate application.
WHAT: This program is designed with company leaders, and content is delivered in concert with leadership to address the goals and challenges of change. The program is between 2-3hrs and is a robust deep dive experience that incorporates transparency and trust into the session by breaking Gary’s content out with content from leadership. For example, Gary will take a 60min presentation and break it out into four 15min segments. Each 15min segment would be followed by a 10-15min content piece from a leader addressing how Gary’s content relates to the organization and the feedback they have received from employee responses. By the end of this session, employees at every level will feel heard but will also have a better understanding of what the leadership is thinking and opportunities for how to move forward together.
AUDIENCE: This deep dive can be delivered to an entire organization or divisions of the organization. Participants take a brief (anonymous) engagement quiz beforehand to share their experiences around change within the organization; the results are presented by company leaders in their portion of the virtual event.
WHY GARY: Gary is masterful at analyzing challenges when it comes to change within an organization and their people. Drawing from over 30-years of consulting and coaching C-Suite leaders as well as having written three books on change, Gary helps design this program with leaders to create the most engaging and impactful experience that will feel more like a collaborative working session with viewers than a virtual presentation.
