Great entrepreneurs build sustainable and profitable companies. They inspire employees to exceed personal and professional expectations and thus enhance and grow companies. 

This high-energy, engaging, and fun presentation is based on the work and research conducted over a twenty-year consulting career with more than 300 entrepreneurs and high-growth businesses.

This interactive program is chock full of practical advice, training, and exercises for every business leader.


Bea Wray will present and lead interactive discussions and exercises around:

  • Vision setting: From breaking down a vision to building up a powerful visual
  • Gratitude: Systematic, fun, and productive gratitude
  • Listening: Selling with Silence



An innovation expert, Bea helps thought leaders share their stories, passions, and knowledge as they invent, launch, and promote new products.

Her years of energy and effort are an immediate benefit to entrepreneurs across 26 countries and throughout the United States.
