Greg Gibbs has spent his entire career in the non-profit sector. With education in both Theology and Organizational Communication, his leadership in churches and faith-based organizations has given him a unique vantage point on how to motivate volunteers and rally support around causes funded by charitable giving. He is a crystal clear communicator and consultant, having worked with hundreds of organizations, churches, and schools all over the country. He has been personally involved in raising over $100 Million dollars for these groups. He is headquartered in Detroit, where he serves on the Executive Team of one of America’s largest churches and as the Executive Vice-President of Warren Strategies, a non-profit consulting group. Greg speaks on various topics that inspire people to live at a higher level, and specializes in Strategic Planning and Communication Skills for Leaders.
Greg has this unique mix of experience – he has a knack for business and an interest in organizational behavior, but most of this was forged in a non-profit and volunteer-driven environment. This allows for a special approach to motivating people when you don’t always have a paycheck to hold over them. Along the way, he has had to gain expertise in dealing with difficult people and hard conversations. If you can imagine a coach with the chops of a CEO and the heart of a clergyman, this is what you get when you connect with Greg. He is a musician, writer and has run five full marathons. He and his wife Andrea met in college, have four kids, two dogs and love to mentor college age young people.
