Greg on Leadership

Greg has been referred to as a natural leader by many. What he realized long ago is that leaders must lead in such a manner that people are willing follow because they want to, not because they have to. It doesn’t matter if it’s in a corporate environment, a volunteer organization or a business situation, the same skills are required.

Greg is often called upon to present his unique take on leadership which he delivers in a straight forward manner that is easily understood and implemented. Greg’s presentation is based on what he learned watching and working with great, and not so great leaders throughout his corporate and entreprenerial careers, as well as his many volunteer roles.

The uniqueness of his presentation has elicited comments such as “We’re being treated to a hugely inspirational talk on leadership…” or “Very impressive speaker presentation. Great advice on being a leader”.
