I have known Gary for more than 15 years, and we have worked together for more than 7 years. This experience has been not only life changing for myself, but his counseling and mentorship have consistently driven sales in our organization beyond any budget or expectation.
Gary will take on any challenge of the organizations he works for and make it personal. He will work hard to get the results consistently. With his more than 45 years of experience, he will focus on core changes in organizations, not only focusing on short-term but long term results as well.
With Gary, I hired a coach and I ended up with one of my closest friends. This shows the type of commitment and impact he has. This impact has spread to our entire organization.
When you chair a company, you understand the urgency to drive revenues every day. You know that sales leaders and sales managers have to transfer the principles, behaviors and skills to their sales people. You know that sales people have to acquire the proper selling habits and hone their skills every day.
Gary O’Sullivan’s time-tested principles for leading and managing a sales organization—for selling excellence and keeping the sales culture alive and thriving—unquestionably represent the BEST opportunity for developing a sales organization. Partnering with GO is how you keep your sales organization selling at its BEST!
Since 2010, Gary has helped me develop several programs and implement several programs; from sales and talent development to creating a successful culture in our organization. Through this programs we have been able to help hundreds of sales counselors and staff members in achieving success. Gary’s approach to development, coaching and the development of culture is quite unique. He delivers a powerful message with a big punch while keeping things interesting and fun!
When I first met Gary, I was instantly attracted to the wealth of his experience and his outstanding reputation as a speaker, teacher, and consultant. As a speaker, my first encounter with Gary was at the ACA convention. As a trained toastmaster, I am hypercritical of a speaker’s technical abilities. Gary hits his mark on all counts. His timing pace, audience engagement, and knowledge of subject matter are second to none. His message is always clear and sharp. His use of quotes and anecdotes make his message both inspiring and motivating. Most importantly, he always leaves you with something to take home. I am a voracious note taker when listening to a speech, but not with Gary. His speeches are always memorable and effective for change.
As my closing presenter at the ICCFA University, he consistently ranks as the highest level of all the teachers. Anyone who had the good fortune of attending the ICCFA University will tell you that his fireside chats at night are just as effective as his classes… and his classes are extremely effective.
As a consultant to many of my 81 client cemeteries where I perform facility management, the ones that use GO consulting are the most successful in their respective markets. His use of technology, his teaching style and his results driven style make our clients both successful and able to scale their success. What impresses me the most about Gary is his rock solid integrity! When you see our firm shine, I think that a piece of Gary’s wisdom is behind there somewhere.
Gary truly gets to know our business as his own which helps make him a true inspiration.
Gary has been a part of my success not just from consulting, sales training, public speaking and leadership development – He has helped me be successful on a daily basis as a result of his “Life” coaching which is a fundamental part of every aspect of the Gary O package.

I have been privileged to call Gary my colleague and friend since 1985.
