“Gary’s presentation is one that is quoted and referenced often around the office to this day. He was very interactive, not just teaching us about culture, but getting a feel for the audience’s aptitude and challenging our knowledge. Even though we only reserved an hour for the presentation, almost everyone in the room gave up another half hour so that Gary could continue to go in-depth on the subject matter.”
– Kimberly Price, Director of Social Strategy, McCann New York

“Listening to Gary lead and drive a conversation was such a unique experience, I sat in my chair furiously taking note after note of his vast knowledge and valuable insights.

Professionally speaking, Gary J. Nix is a marketing strategist, educator, and speaker who earned his stripes as a disruptor, innovator, and predictor in the entertainment, magazine publishing, sports, and marketing industries.

Likewise, his upbringing playing sports, DJ-ing, and living life led him to where he is now—a consultancy founder, culturist and speaker on intentional culture.

He opens hearts and minds to deeply examine the less-spoken elements of successful business through the presentation of insights, experience, and cultural intelligence.

The intersection of what he talks about and how he works is found at the junction of brand and culture. That’s how he is able to share valuable information about how creating a solid base is a function of future-proofing, and how specificity can lead to a state of being more universal. Are you ready?
