Facilitator, Educator, Change Agent, & Prolific Speaker
I met Gary years ago when we were teenagers. He was a driven basketball player, pro-bound. He was, even back then, extremely compassionate, professional, intelligent, and giving.
Now, several years later, I am so grateful to call him a colleague, a friend…family! I have watched Gary grow from a basketball player at Florida Atlantic University, the NCAA Dunk Champion, and pro-ball player for Italy, to running his own basketball camp at home in Toronto, Canada where he gave several scholarships to under-resourced children. I watched Gary finish Teacher’s College and become an educator helping at-risk kids. I also watched as Gary grew into a captivating Public Speaker, and an innovative Leadership Facilitator and Change Agent.
Looking at the confident Actor, Entrepreneur, and Sports Agent with a healthy roster of NBA clients, it would be hard to tell he was once a troubled youth from Jamaica just trying to find his way in one of the toughest areas of Toronto. Ever inspired by inspirational quotes, Gary became the change he wanted to see…and he has inspired and coached many others to do the same.
Having personally worked on corporate and non-profit team building and change management projects with Gary, as well as entertainment productions, I have witnessed his funny side, his ability to engage a room and hold their attention, and his ability to make everyone feel as if they are powerful enough to achieve any goal they set. Gary Durrant is not your average speaker – he is a Super Speaker.
Gary maintains his commitment to helping young people, communities, and corporate leaders continue to dunk life like the champs they are!
