Gair Maxwell didn’t follow a safe or conventional path to get where he is today. He comes from humble roots.  Once unemployed, Gair re-invented himself to become an internationally-recognized author, speaker and entrepreneur.

Gair was part of the adjunct faculty at The world famous Wizard Academy out of Austin, Texas. Maxwell is also affiliated with several marketing firms in different parts of North America. Gair plays a strong role with many companies to work on helping them sharpen their message and anchor their story.

Gair Maxwell’s counter-intuitive theories on “Branding With Distinction” for some independent business owners applied his formulas and grew their enterprises 10-fold over a 5-year period. He is also the bestselling author of the critically acclaimed book, Nuts, Bolts And A Few Loose Screws. Gair Maxwell was a former broadcaster. He interviewed more than 10,000 people in 30,000 broadcasts in his two-decade radio and television career.

Testimonials

Just wanted to thank you again for your amazing presentation at the IBAO convention. I enjoyed your book but hearing you speak brought you information to entirely new level. I must say my mind has been stretched to an entirely new level and it will never go back. I have new mission now from your seminar to slay the dragons of Conformity in the insurance business.

JEFF ROY

President and CEO
Excalibur Insurance Group

Loved your material and how you presented it! Vancouver executives got a really great dollop of what to do well on the way to the designers to help shape their message. I think I scribbled notes faster and in larger volumes than anyone in that room. Such an exciting topic for me. And, you delivered in terms of content, style, timing and voice tone plus personality the way it works best for me and I hope it was absorbed by the group. Oh, I have to say my fave part was hands on. At the table. LOVED working on bringing out their stories. Gair, thank you so much for what you shared with the group at the Burnaby Arts Centre that day in April.

HELENA KAUFMAN

I just want to take this opportunity to give you a sincere thank you for a great presentation yesterday. The reaction from my members and their evaluation results were outstanding. As one member said, “the best presentation on branding and marketing I have attended”. Everyone also valued your input to the issue we processed. Thanks for your contributions in that regard as well. I wish you continued success and hope that we will be able to do a return engagement at some point.

ROB VAN WELY

Chair TEC 322 Niagara Falls, ON

I want to thank you for your excellent, uplifting, positive and original presentation. I know there were many useful and practical ideas that will set us apart from our competitors. It will be up to us to follow up on it . As you said, it takes 6 times to remember and form a habit. We should probably do a follow up session in the New Year and see how well we implemented these great ideas.

ANDRE CORMIER

La Mine D’Or Jewellers

First of all, it was a real pleasure to meet you last week!  All of us in TEC really enjoyed the morning and it has us really thinking about next steps. Something a Chair always wants to see and hear from their members.

JOYCE GROOTE

President & CEO TEC Chair
HOLEYS CANADA INC

Gair’s strength is that he is both engaging and empathetic in a way that draws the audience into the message being delivered. The presentation was not only timely from a business perspective but of enormous value on a personal level. Gair provided us with just the perfect dose of clarity of thought that we all needed to hear and act on. Gair’s presentation was the all the talk the next morning; he has won a ton of raving fans here at Graybar Canada.
