Inspiring Guelph Ontario on a Saturday Morning

A special thank you to the Guelph Chamber of Commerce, Lloyd and Wendy and all of the Branding Boot Camp sponsors who did an outstanding job this past Sat. Feb.21.2009. This was a special Boot Camp for me. Talk about a rush and the need for major caffeine. For starters, I moved into my new house all day and night on Friday evening. No sleep and waking up at 5:30 to drive to Guelph to inspire and motive a large audience wanting everything from me. This is what it is all about. Creatively inspiring 1 million people means I need to be ready at all times, morning, afternoon or evening. Even though my mind was occupied with the day before with movers and walls coming down to make way for over-sized furniture, I had to focus on the task at hand. These entrepreneurs signed up for a 3 hour morning to get inspired and motivated on how to 'Create their life' and brand themselves. After 6 cups of coffee and an energy bar, I was on, full throttle in one of the best venues I have spoken at, the award-winning Rozanski Hall at the University of Guelph. I loved the audience, the energy, the opening lines and the cast of sponsors. What I took away from this event, was that no matter how tough life gets or how fatigued you feel, when you are in alignment with your life purpose, you can accomplish anything.
Thank you to the Guelph Mercury for a great write up:

In the news on NSB

I am increasingly impressed with The National Speakers Bureau and their ability to re-invent themselves during this creatively challenging time. Their new website and ability to streamline information is excpetional. The full team under the direction of Theresa Beenken is stellar to say the least. I am extremely grateful to be listed as one of their preferred speakers and to be featured in their news area: Check it out at: http://nsb.com/news/page:8

The ART of thinking BIG



Gerry Visca is focused on helping Mississauga GET CREATIVE, more in the Mississauga News
http://www.mississauganews.com/article/23985 I am looking forward to this upcoming Branding Boot Camp. Having grown up in Mississauga, I had the pleasure of attending TL Kennedy High School ans playing tennis at Cobblestone Courts and ORC. This is an incredible city with great growth potential. I look forward to March 5, 2009.

I am so pleased to be a part of more and more speaking opportunities across the country. I was interviewed on The Hamilton Spectator this week both in print and also on video. There are 50,000 speakers world-wide and my goal is to be an inspiration to action. This is my message to help people, businesses, entrepreneurs GET CREATIVE. This is an art, an action that must be taken by businesses today more than ever. During my talks, I focus on my 10 laws of Creativity:

1. Uncover Your Natural Ability
2. Condition Your Mind
3. Developing Your Personal Brand
4. Build Momentum
5. Collaborate and Attract
6. The Art of Differentiation
7. Become a Master Presenter
8. Create Your Own Opportunities
9. Visualization Affirmations Gratitude
10. Live Life with Passion

This week was extremely thought provoking and full of creative energy. We have all of our BIG THINK sponsors in place and on track for bringing 200 BIG THINKERS together on Mar 27 and 28 at our BIG THINK in Toronto. These are people, entrepreneurs and businesses that want more then ever to learn the tools to thrive in this new market place. They are arriving in bus loads, car pools full of excitement and energy. The big thinkers are not giving in, rather, they are thinking outside the white box, they are getting RED, fired up, inspired to take action and network with their peers. I personally look forward to interacting with each and everyone of them. I have devoted the next 14 days to meeting with over 1,000 people across the GTA illuminating them as to the value of being a part of the BIG THINK.

Gerry on Guelph Radio and Rogers TV


I had the pleasure of spending the day in Guelph with Lloyd, Wendy and the Guelph Chamber of Commerce team promoting the upcoming Feb.21.09 Young Professionals Boot Camp. What an exciting day! We started at 8:30 with a radio interview on Magic 106.1 with Lisa and Kevin impressed with the professionalism of this radio station and their goal of getting Ellen DeGeneres on their show. Following our 'Magic' morning, we headed down to Kitchener for a 11:50am TV interview with Rogers Television, Susan and Terry. A great interview, made my hair spike up (more than usual). The focus on the interview? How to GET more CREATIVE with your life, your business and your approach. How to present like a master, how to attract what you need and want most in your life. How to take yourself and your team from being good to being OUTSTANDING. Following our TV interview, we haded down to University of Guelph to tour the Rozanski Hall that I will be presenting at on Feb.21.09. This is a very impressive facility and absolutely perfect for a 600 person Boot Camp. The theatre style setting, high-tech jumbo screen and masterful acoustics will allow me to 'supercharge' the audience on Feb.21. A great sunny day, great energy in Guelph, lunch at Turtle Jacks, how can you go wrong on a Monday morning. Looking forward to inspiring you all on Feb 21.2009, for more information on how to sign up for this Boot camp, visit http://www.guelphchamber.com/.
