“Gregg was the closing speaker at a recent conference we held for our branch administrators. He took the time to learn what our conference was about and what types of changes our administrators were dealing with before presenting. The result was an educational, engaging, relevant session…a great way to end our 2 day session.” – VP, Advisor Development – Assante Wealth Management
Gregg’s depth of experience began many years ago, as he was part of the ground breaking team that opened the first wave of Starbucks stores in Canada. His ability to engage teams, drive change and customer service earned him his first award.
This is what he did next…
Gregg then felt he had to find deeper meaning in his work, and began to teach life skills to one of the most challenging (yet inspiring!) groups of people: prisoners in federal penitentiaries—which is, interestingly enough, where he also did his first speech to over 500 inmates and their families. At the same time he taught life skills to people that were living on the street and recovering from addictions, always fine-tuning his approach to behaviour change.
He transitioned into leading education, training and organizational change initiatives in large, multi-generational organizations – as well as consulting with leaders and executives on individual behaviour change.
Gregg pursued a Master of Science Degree from the University of Leicester in the UK, with a focus on organizational psychology, leadership and performance and is an Associate Member of the American Psychological Association.
