About Workplace Bullying
Conference Keynote Addresses
Dr. Gary Namie is a masterful professional speaker. As the founder of the U.S. Workplace Bullying movement, this social psychologist, researcher, author, and consultant brings to audiences an unrivaled perspective on every aspect of the phenomenon, from an individual focus to organizational to societal.
His work is informed by research and content, not fluff. Though he taught college for 21 years, he's no "egghead." He won national and campus teaching awards. Dr. Namie was an HR corporate Director of Training and incorporates his 28 years of consulting experience into his engaging speeches.
Never boring. Entertaining. Thought-provoking. Motivating. Inspirational. But not a contrived "motivational" speaker.
Others cite Workplace Bullying Institute principles and research to portray themselves as "experts." Gary Namie is the originator, the source cited by those copycats.
His presentations are packed full of information accumulated from the inception of the U.S. workplace bullying movement in mid-1997, for which he and Dr. Ruth are responsible.

Dr. Gary Namie is one of the nation's leading authorities on workplace bullying and abuse. Fortunately, he also is a compelling speaker, one who can skillfully describe and analyze this destructive phenomenon and discuss possible responses before audiences of laypersons and employee relations professionals alike. He should be on the short list of anyone who is putting together a program on this topic.

Client comments about Gary's work ...
What a gift of the years of knowledge and experience you gave us and wrapped in a fun envelope that made it easy to understand.
His day started at 3:30am in order to fly here, but he hit the ground running...Dr Namie was as dynamic and creative at 9:30 pm for his fifth presentation as he was at the first; he had his audience laughing and nodding with recognition every time. His deep personal involvement, scholarly documentation, and powerful personality make him the ideal advocate for this cause; his empathy is tangible, his political activism is admirable. The ripple effect of his work here yesterday is already beyond what I could have imagined, and I am inspired to continue the work.

Gary's style is absolutely electric! The campus so appreciated all of your hard work, and your powerful message; words cannot express how overwhelmed I was with both the content and quality of your presentation.
Jackie Gilbert, Ph.D., Professor of Management, Middle Tennessee University
Amazing, wonderful, empowering - are just a few of the words attendees used to describe Gary's presentation. Using his unique facilitator style, Gary is able to provide information on the dark topic of workplace bullying with humour, compassion, and honesty. Gary takes evidence based information and makes it real and practical, which provides information for both the lay person and professionals, employees and employer, and targets, witnesses and bullies. The Regional Suicide Prevention Council, Medicine Hat, Alberta
Our biggest thanks to you. You are truly making a difference in the lives of thousands of people. It takes special people like yourself to tackle this issue and to have the strength to continue the fight for Ruth and many others. You bring real emotion to the topic much like the real emotion that individuals are feeling everyday because they have experienced workplace bullying. Jos Herman, BPW President, Saskatoon
Thanks to Gary, our seminar was a real success. With humor, anecdotes, and real-life examples, Gary brought the issue of workplace bullying to the forefront for managers and human resources staff in city departments. While many who entered the room were not familiar with the concept, Gary's informed and thorough presentation gave everyone a wonderful introduction to this widespread workplace problem.
John J. Lombardi, President, Providence (RI) City Council
Attendees greatly appreciated the information shared. One person's evaluation said, "Very informative with humor, great stats and insight into bullying and ideas to handle situations." Thank you, Gary, for the tools to address this issue.

He gives valuable personal, team and institutional solutions to this problem. His session was the most popular session in the 2006 conference and we've brought him back for a repeat performance!

The reaction from attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Dr. Gary's session was relevant, timely and professional. We meeting planners were criticized because we didn't devote more time to his presentation.
