SNU Ziglar Center Peer Learning Network Welcomes Greg Gray

BETHANY, Okla. (February 4, 2011) - Southern Nazarene University will be hosting Greg Gray on campus, Thursday, February 10, 2011. Gray will be speaking in the Peer Learning Network sessions from 8:00am-11:00am in the Royce Brown Building.

Gray is fast becoming one of the most sought after speakers on the speaking and training circuit today. His keynotes, seminars and workshops have electrified and empowered tens of thousands of people in more than 400 hundred cities all across America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. Gray's blend of humor and real world, practical ideas on leadership and service are receiving rave reviews from clients that run the gamut of industries and associations all over the country.

In 1994, Gray co-authored the largest Customer Service training course in U.S. history. This program, entitled "Excellent Service! Handle with Care!”, was attended by more than 110,000 U.S. Postal Service employees and has become a standard video training series for all new USPS Retail employees.

More recently, Gray has developed the “Renaissance Series” - a number of keynote topics, workshops, training modules, and full day training programs designed to deal with a variety of issues around the subjects of leadership, communication, relationships, and the external and internal customer experience. A number of these programs are also available on DVD and on Audio CD.

Gray received his bachelor's degree in Communications from Oberlin College, and has more than 25 years of experience working in sales, customer service, training, and management in industries ranging from retail jewelry to telecommunications.

Gray's success can be attributed to his consistent themes of personal responsibility and profit through service.

Peer Learning Network is a learning forum to share ideas from world-class speakers and best practices of network partners to further organizational development of the partner organizations.
