Don’t Take Our Word For It
I have literally just left your workshop and wanted to thank you for your engaging presentation style. I manage Professional Development for the Toronto Real Estate Board and am a huge supporter of adult education and the quest for personal evolution. As such, I know how difficult it can be to find people who can engage their audience and come off like a real human and win people over. That can be near impossible sometimes. You are very good at what you do. I thank you for that.

Gary and his session were awesome. Our emerging leaders thoroughly enjoyed learning from him. He definitely kept the momentum going for what is a fantastic week of engagement with our high potentials.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for an awesome afternoon yesterday for our first session. The session was full of energy and ensured everyone got involved. I have had some very positive feedback so far. So a huge thank you to you and Gary… job well done! Looking forward to the next two days at the end of the month! Personally, I could have listened to the two of you all day!

Some training and team building sessions offer fresh insights and new perspectives. Some training and team building sessions bring a group of people together to move toward a common objective. And then there are those exceptional sessions that also redirect toxic influences, excite and re-engage the players and enhance an organization’s culture in a palpable way. In other words, they just generally Kick Ass!
Recently, Gary came to STEO, and with an accessible, authentic and exuberant approach to team building, brought our gang tangible tools and takeaways to begin implementing engagement on both personal and group levels. The course speaks to personal engagement and accountability in a way that makes those ideas achievable, positive - even fun! The creative approach and sometimes unexpected phraseology excited the grey matter and challenges those mundane behaviours that no longer serve the individual and thus, the team.
Following our Hell Yeah session, our team was - and remains - excited for their future and that of the organization. Take THAT Zombie Apocalypse.
Gary and the BizXcel team clearly live what they teach and we are a better team here at STEO as a result of their contribution.

Gary possesses such passion and enthusiasm you can’t help but leave his sessions energized. He is a wonderful, charismatic story teller with insightful anecdotes injecting new ways of looking at situations. Gary is comfortable addressing small crowds or large crowds, management and non-management; his goal is to to connect with the audience and impart his knowledge and experience. Gary is charming, witty, entertaining and engaging. You won’t be disappointed.

The main speaker at the dinner was an amazingly good professional motivational speaker, Mr. Gary Gzik. His presentation, “Unleashing the Hero Inside” was a well-received upbeat message with audience participation. Well done for having this kind of speaker in attendance!

I took a lot out of your kick ass presentation, specifically TGIM - thank goodness it’s Monday. I actually own a hoodie that says “Fri. Sat. Sun, Repeat” - I do LOVE my weekends… but I love my job too and you guys helped to remind me of that.

Just wanted to say thank you for an awesome job you and Hannah did last week at our annual Roxborough strategy meeting. It was insightful to say the least… both on the professional and personal side of the coin. Changing the mindset is not always an easy task, especially when one is going through life’s trials. I walked away from that meeting with a smile on my face and felt compelled to express my gratitude.
I have implemented the “commit to one” rule in my daily existence.
Just saying… I am not here to be average, I AM HERE TO BE AWESOME!!!
