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.
