Gary brings his A game every time. He spends the necessary time understanding the organization and makes sure his messages are in the context of what the audience needs to hear. Gary puts in the time. He comes in early and is available to the participants afterwards. He does not land, do a stock speech and leave immediately.

Gary Guller: Mt. Everest Summiter & Motivational Keynote Speaker
A world record breaking mountaineer, extreme marathoner, and inspirational speaker, Gary is enthralling to listen to and leaves audiences energized and motivated to conquer their own personal & professional mountains.
Executives from around the globe seek out Gary for a genuine real life perspective delivering amazing results through teamwork, discipline and to the summit. If Gary was to select one factor — it would be consistent execution and delivery of committed outcomes. Here’s his view…methodologies provide a nice framework for thinking and have the potential to clarify roles and hand-offs. But nothing beats being out in the trenches working side by side with the teams and learning — and then returning to base camp (HQ) to eliminate obstacles and inefficiencies that possibly annoy and derail our teams as they make their way to the Summit! The best of plans yield to the situation on the ground and our ability to react, contribute and add long term value!
“Your gift is the way you connect with people and help them discover themselves through the story of how you discovered yourself. So deeply genuine, personal and even vulnerable. We all get lost in your story and wonder about our own story. You know how the room feels and reacts. Priceless.” VP Fortune 100

Influences & Inspiration
“Just to let you know that when I got back into the office I had a whole host of mails from attendees at the event saying how inspiring & thought provoking your piece was, I would also add that people who had seen other ' key note speakers ' commented on how different your piece was at you focused on what a team can achieve together, not what the leader had achieved. This I think is really powerful. It was a pleasure to host you, you are a true professional, & a very easy person to host.”
