A few years ago, Jay ran away with Cirque du Soleil. At the Cirque-Us, Jay led the design of Cirque’s corporate training and team-building sessions. He literally worked with a bunch of clowns.
Jay’s professional nickname is "The Boss Whisperer." His superpower is the ability to deliver "difficult" feedback to teams and senior leaders in ways they can hear. Jay has had the good great fortune of working with several name brand companies including Google, Uber, Mastercard, NHL, Club Med Punta Cana, SwissLife, Kmart Australia, and SAB Miller Brewery Latin America.
As a former and reformed bully boss, Jay has personally experienced the transformative power of leadership training and coaching. Thus, Jay’s goal is to improve the way managers lead and team members interact. His mission is to build a world where work is not just a means to an end, but a source of inspiration, transformation, and interpersonal growth.
