Your lecture, and in particular, the 20-item challenge, ... was the most practical advice on leadership and self-improvement that I have ever received. Your stories were engaging, applicable, well-delivered, and I felt absolutely compelled to write down every single action item. In fact, I have posted the list on my bathroom mirror!

Mr. Wray delivers an insightful, energetic, well articulated message: “if you are looking for a leader, look in the mirror”. Mr. Wray believes leadership can be cultivated in oneself, and provides a specific set of skills, traits, and practices needed to get there. The message is adaptable to any field of work, whether banking, military service, or a tech start-up; the only prerequisite is having the will to change.
— Jim Widman
The timing of your presentation was perfect. I have been challenged with motivating my team for results. Your presentation gave me so much to work with that I can’t thank you enough.
