“As a medical doctor, the main benefits I’ve gained through working with Dr Gary include more interaction, engagement and authentic connection with my audiences. I’m a lot more able to think on my feet rather than just speak as an authority from the lecture-based approach to communication that I learned in medical school. Dr Gary’s relationship-based approach has given me tremendous feedback and support from people in my audiences all over the world that would not have been possible had I held onto my old content-driven style”

Dr Peter Lewis, Medical Director SureCell Clinic

“Just want to let you know that I’m still loving the benefits I received from coming to your Sydney “Speaking from the Heart” workshop. Sooo good to experience a public speaking workshop that addressed my core issues around my speaking fears, identify where those fears originated from, and then a safe enough space for me to be seen and & transform those fears within the group environment. Very powerful! Love your sensitivity Gary! You’ve gone beyond “technique” to the real juice – thank you so much.”

Eve Glimma, International workshop leader, coach and community organiser.

“Hi Gary, I’ve been wanting to write and thank you for my amazing experience you gave me at your presentation to the Coaching Institute at ‘Coaches Connect’, and how it’s made such a difference to how I feel as a whole. I was amazed at how deeply that had held me back. Time for me to be heard and give my message of love to the world. No longer want to sit on the sidelines. I thank you for unlocking something in me that feels different. I know something has indeed shifted. You do incredible work, and so quick! I’ve been a counsellor for so long and what you do where you reach the soul and work on that level is so exciting. I hope you know the difference you are making. “

I have known and worked with Dr Gary Wohlman over the past year and a half on areas of both personal and professional development. The platform for our meetings is Skype, which has enabled us both to meet irrespective of where we were. For me this is a powerful medium, because it enables us to choose to use both visual and auditory modalities or just auditory when we meet. Gary is able to coach me through presentation techniques and see and hear what I was doing, as well as converse with me voice-to-voice during times of deep personal growth work -which for me was less intrusive and enabled me to work at a deep level without other modal interferences.
Gary brings an essence of huge integrity to his work. He challenges and supports the development of new “knowings” with compassion and deep understandings of his field of expertise. His energy, spirit and depth of knowledge are inspirational.

“Our Zoom sessions have been invaluable and have really enhanced my ability to engage and interact via online meetings & also in my face-to-face teaching”

Beth Dorrough, Brand Ambassador & Educator
Dr Gary has been working with the MAV as a contracted facilitator for just under one year and working in Local Government (LG) for many years as a respected and knowledgeable professional coach/mentor and expert in presentations and other communication platforms.
It has been my pleasure to work with Dr Gary in the councillor development program and the feedback I have received from the councillor learning groups is high level praise for Dr Gary’s knowledge base and inter-active facilitation style.
The materials and information provided by Gary is meaningful and current, with Dr Gary devoted to continuous improvement practices, with the training sessions facilitated consistently of high quality and resonating with the sector, and the roles and functions of a councillor as prescribed in the Act.
Dr Gary would be an asset to professional learning and development programs, as well as offering executive training for public to individual clients/customers.
I am honoured to provide a professional character reference and should you need a further testimonial to the benefits of working with Dr Gary, please contact me on the phone or by email.
Yours sincerely
Julie Saylor-Briggs, Councillor Development Coordinator Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV)

“What impressed me the most in the Stakeholder Engagement training we offered to our technical support staff was the transformation with the participants who previously did not have the confidence to present in a public forum. They now present themselves with self-confidence in a succinct and clear delivery. In a recent training session participants demonstrated their newly acquired skills confidently by presenting in front of a group of 20 people. The results from Dr Gary’s facilitation continued to grow weeks and months beyond our initial exposure to this unique approach to improving interpersonal communication.”

Jackie O'Brien, Learning & Development Lead, Capgemini Consulting

After our session yesterday, A potential client (who I’d never spoken to before)  sms’d me saying Help Call ASAP I have a tender. In just 4 hours, this prospect turned into a client and paid in full for my services

Chris Dennis, Business consultant

“I’ve consulted Gary since 2011. At the time I was suffering regular laryngitis and chronic bronchitis. Not good for a business publicist! Gary’s bodywork therapy was instrumental in restoring my overall health and physical voice. More recently I’ve consulted Gary for my business voice, including preparing speeches for NSW Leaders, creating new workshops and preparing for my writers’ retreats. Gary facilitates clarity by reconnecting me to purpose and narrative. His work is ultimately about deep self-awareness and authentic voice. He is skilful, intuitive and compassionate. I value his willingness and ability to assist at multiple levels. I would not be where I am today in health or enterprise without his transformational tools and caring presence. Thank you Gary”

Katie McMurray, Managing Director of KatieMac Publicity
“In this live session you are about to experience today, Gary takes us on a journey from ‘innocence to integration, through the great shuddering of life.’ Operating out of his uniqueness and authenticity, he draws each person out in a sensitive, commanding and creative way ~ so they feel safe to share their communicative gifts with ease. One of the greatest strengths we can learn from here is Gary’s ability to focus intently on each individual with whom he is working. His unique gift is helping you stand and discover qualities — once locked inside you — which are “magical, mystical, transcendent, nirvana, the Tao, the BIG IT ~ and present it to people.”
Grady-Jim Robinson, Celebrity Speaker & Professional Storyteller, National Speakers Association
After a lifetime of feeling self-conscious when I speak in front of others in public situations, in just 5 minutes after practicing the simple tool you have shown me of matching my gestures to make pictures of the words I am saying, I am now so relaxed and speaking from a natural place that I no longer feel nervous about trying to remember what to say. Through allowing my hand movements to show what I am telling, this process slows me down, gets me out of my head, and lets me speak from a place of connectedness and trusting what I have to say. As my body movements flow, I am trusting what I deeply know, and speak with confidence, clarity and composure that I have never known before. Thank you.
Lauren Scott, Managing director of Golden Girls Assist
