“There are very few courses where the developer delivers the course. Your ownership of the material cannot be duplicated. This course would not be the same without your delivery and it is too good not to be shared.“
– Charles Gowder – Former General Manager of VTCI. (Our one day seminar was initially created for VTCI.)
I first had the privilege of hearing Greg speak during a seminar in Little Rock and immediately I knew I would be doing a disservice to my employees if I did not share with them the message he delivers. Greg brings to the table tremendous insight about leadership, relationships and personal responsibilities that demands one to take their personal inventory; but he does it with such a humorous gentleness that you’re left with a feeling of, “Wow! I can’t wait to get started!”
We invited Greg to speak at our Leadership Retreat in July. Sixteen (out of seventeen) of our returned evaluation questionnaires had a positive comment regarding Greg. (The one without a positive comment, did not have any comments.) Here are a few examples, “[Greg Gilbert] changed my life! He is an amazing speaker and has a wealth of valuable information.” “Best speaker I’ve ever heard!” And “The most helpful aspects of the retreat were Greg. He was very interesting and gave me things to think about and use.” One of the questions on the questionnaire was “What aspects of the retreat did you like best?” Ten of the sixteen answered that Greg’s presentation was the best.
Thank you Greg. As one person wrote, [your presentation] “is from the heart”.

I wanted to share a resource with you in case you and your church or community are looking for a good speaker and entertainer.
Mr. Greg Gilbert recently spoke at both our Henrietta & Clay County Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet as well as at Henrietta FUMC for our Sunday Service. He did a great job! He teaches about leadership, love and life, but does it in a wonderful way through stories and songs. The songs are ones that he has written and he does an incredible job teaching poignant messages.
He did an outstanding job at our Chamber Banquet with a message that brought both laughter and tears. He has a strong faith and brings that into his talk and songs. The message that he gave to our church the following day was a powerful one that has kept people talking about it. He was able to say some things to the church that they needed to hear, yet it came to them in a more powerful way than just their hearing it in a sermon from their pastor.

There is something for everyone in our leadership seminar and keynote.
“Thank you. You have opened my eyes to the true importance of what I do as a supervisor. Your real life stories presented leadership in a manner where I “get it”. I see where I’ve dropped the ball.” – Comment at the end of an August 2013 seminar. “What took me paragraphs explaining our value on a web site, this individual summed up in one statement; seeing the importance of leadership.

Enjoyed your class today. You made learning fun.
Greg Gilbert Coaching – Leadership And Life Programs Thank you Marsha. Go to www.GregLGilbert.com/acaaa for my thank you in case you didn’t get a CD.
Marsha Myers King – Thank you. I missed out on the CD’s. I can’t decide which is more amazing, your musical/songwriting talent, or your ability to give such an amazing speech. Keep up the good work.
Greg, Thank you for your time yesterday. Your Leadership training was very informative as well as entertaining. I could have listened to you all day long. Thank you, thank you.
Of all the positive feedback received from our course, I am most proud of this comment; “Greg, you can record this course on CD or DVD if you want, but “you” are the course. You separate this from “online” training. You witnessed the successes and failures and what caused each.
There are very few courses where the developer delivers the course. Your ownership of the material cannot be duplicated. This course would not be the same without your delivery and it is too good not to be shared.” – Charles Gowder – Former General Manager of VTCI. (Our one day seminar was initially created for VTCI.)
Feedback from attendees has been more than positive! Your approach was on target, our staff shared that they appreciated the fact that you weren’t “telling” us how to do things, but shared ideas, experience & rationale for these approaches. I’ll let you know how we progress. Take care,

“Your program was very pertinent and useful. Your “real life” stories allowed you to make a connection with your audience.” – Rhonda Davis – CFO, Paragould Light Water & Cable
Your session was very interesting and fun, which is a rarity in HR. I am now listening to country music to see if I can find lyrics to change into HR experiences. Makes me laugh while driving down the road. – Thanks,

E-mail to meeting planner: I didn’t tell you how much I enjoyed the meeting yesterday. The location was absolutely perfect….what a great idea to use that facility! And the program you all put together for us was just what I needed to hear. The student choir reminded us of our mission at the health dept; to create a better world for them. But by far, the guitar HR speaker really brought home important messages to me personally AND professionally. Please tell all your team members that we all appreciate the hard work that went into planning and implementing such a good program for us.

The training brought new perspectives and re-enforced ideas on getting the most out of ourselves as managers as well as our employees. It was good to hear that others are facing the same situations with staff as we do. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was not boring, it kept my attention. You gave very interesting examples of your past experiences. I can use these in my job.
Good information – not only useful in the worksite setting but “day to day” relationships. I don’t feel like there was “too much” or “not enough of” anything. The training flowed and information given came from personal experience. This helps seeing what works and what doesn’t in things we deal with in our day to day professional life. I will also take with me things to help me in my personal life. Thanks so much Greg –
It was great and I think we all have learned so much. We will continue to have discussion when we return to the office. I liked the format. The stories help support issues that we as supervisors face each day. It is true what you said about looking back at ourselves. We can build or tear down with our words. I liked the small group round table. I prefer this way of learning. The training brought new perspectives and re-enforced ideas on getting the most out of ourselves as managers as well as employees. It was good to hear that others are facing the same situations as we do.
“My company has tried to shift to online training and it is nothing like this. You kept my interest up and I got much more from this class than online. I would have a hard time passing a test after an online class but not yours.”
“I have not held employees accountable enough. That is about to change. We are all in this together.”
“I can’t think of anything you didn’t cover and if I could, I probably won’t ever need it.”
“This information removes all excuses!”
“Very practical, to the point, effective principles given, easily understood, a very useful seminar.” “Greg, you have given me the tools I can use to be a good supervisor after the class. I know there are some things I need to change my perspective on. You were good @ explaining the “whys” and it was not boring! That’s a plus!”
“I liked this class as well as the attendance class. Please send me info on other classes. Also, I would like to send some of my supervisors to these classes. I really like the “true stories” you tell in the class. It makes the information REAL! A good well-rounded class.”
“Good practical real world examples. It’s good to hear about employee issues outside of your company and see that your issues are not dissimilar.”
“The smaller class size & the real life situations can hit home better than “text Book” situations. I have learned a lot that can give me the potential to be a better leader. Much better than online training.”

“Something for everyone, not just new supervisors!” “This contained things that applied to life in addition to my job.” “Wealth of information. Picked up many things I can implement immediately. It’s like 20-30 experienced managers giving you their best stuff, the things that work!!”
“So many things you don’t think of. I sure wish I’d had the draft folder advice last month. It would have saved me a regret.”
“Clearly denotes the importance of consistency as it relates to following policies.”
“If you are in a leadership position, you need this class for life applications also.”
“I appreciated hearing real life experiences. Thank you for the information on the importance of maintaining meeting posture.”
