Talk to Gary
I am honored to be recognized by the International Cemetery and Funeral Association as the Speaker of the Decade in 2000, and again, for an unprecedented second time, in 2010.
Since entering the business world in 1971 (more about Gary’s life here), I’ve been on a personal quest to learn everything there is to know about success in business — and then to teach and influence people at all levels in all kinds of organizations.
Because I understand business from all angles and at every level — I have earned the respect of all audiences.
I deliver powerful content with a down-home attitude. Using a combination of personal insights, humor and content I inspire, educate, and influence audiences to be better, to do better and to deliver outstanding results that exceed expectations.Talk to Gary
Praise for Gary O’Sullivan’s Keynotes
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.
There are very few “sure things” when it comes to planning a conference, but having Gary O’Sullivan on the program takes the guesswork out of our keynote. He always comes through. From his pre-conference preparation, to his message, to his delivery, Gary gives a first-class presentation every time.
Our members consistently rate him as a top speaker, as someone who educates, challenges and inspires. Gary is both passionate and sincere, both authoritative and likable, and these are powerful combinations for any speaker.
