I first met Greg many years ago at the world's leading Aquatic Exercise convention 'International Aquatics Fitness Conference' and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and presentation skills. I found him to be equally dynamic and genuine. We had the opportunity to work jointly on several projects, and are continuing to go so, as the collaboration was very successful. Greg possesses a wealth of knowledge on a variety of subjects, has integrity, is generous and genuine. I continue to be astounded by his work ethic and so appreciate all he brings to the table.
I highly recommend Greg as a tremendous resource for any organization seeking to distinguish itself through strong leadership and exceptional training.

It's a supreme honor and pleasure to share words about Dr. Greg Keyes who I can wholeheartedly give the highest endorsement on his behalf. However, words will clearly fail me in trying to capture the full essence of who he is and the contribution he makes to those around him and to people around the globe.
Having been a collegiate swimmer myself, I segued into water exercise where I had the pleasure of meeting Greg over a decade ago when he presented at Aquatic Exercise Association's International water fitness conference. Of all the instructors, Greg stood out to me, not only in regards to his superior expertise of water fitness and health and wellness, but also as a motivator, communicator and charismatic leader. You simply can't describe Greg's presentation style in words other than: WOW! I was motivated and inspired and when I returned back to my local students they even commented that I had grown and changed as an instructor almost overnight upon returning from the conference. I wholeheartedly attribute that to the ideas, enthusiasm and passion that Greg Keyes imparted to the participants, including myself, during that short conference.
Little did I know that over a decade later I would still be so blessed to have Greg as a mentor, role model and friend from "down under". Greg connects with people like no one else I know and stays committed to building and maintaining relationships...and for that I know my life is richer. He even went out of this way to come to my hometown to inspire us during one of his trips to the United States. I have learned so much from Greg and now through the power of the internet and social media, so many more of us are able to be inspired to reach higher goals continually in our professional and personal life. We don't have to wait for a conference to experience the impact he continually provides!
Over the years, I have realized that "fitness instructor" is just one hat that Greg wears and that Dr. Keyes is unanimously the most well-rounded and diversified individual I have ever met. Greg has the rare ability to multi-task and not only become good at what he puts his mind too but he becomes THE EXPERT in every given field, passion and interest he devotes himself too. I also admire him for this greatly because much like himself, water fitness is just a passion for me, but I work full time as a managing broker of a real estate firm and hold an MBA and like to juggle many plates myself. I wish I had had the opportunity to study under Greg in a business setting too for I know his teachings and research are unparalleled in his primary field...but in his special style, Greg has taught me much about life - personal & career, communication and working with people in general that transcends all aspects of my life.
If I can answer any further questions about the "gift" that Greg Keyes could bring to any organization, please do not hesitate to contact me. He is extraordinary!
