“Dr. Gleb’s presentation at our virtual webinar was powerful! He was prepared, passionate, and engaged our audience. He was happy to go through our logistics and prep sessions to make sure that everyone was comfortable. If you want a true professional I would strongly recommend Dr. Gleb for your future engagements”
Jherica Rhodes, Coordinator of Learning Programs, Meeting Professionals International
“I am fortunate to be on Dr. Gleb’s email list and recently received his White Paper titled: 'How to Defeat Work-From-Home Burnout and Zoom Fatigue.' It inspired me to request he speak (again) at our National Association of Contingency Professionals (ACP) Webinar series. His topics always get the attention of our members and he delivers them with the knowledge and talent of a true professional. In preparing for his presentation, he always ensures that every potential question and potential for disruption are addressed. He is, indeed, a delight to work with and we always welcome his insights.”
Dr. Roberta LaRocca, National Board Chair of the Education Committee for ACP (Association of Contingency Professionals)
“As the Learning Chair for Entrepreneur's Organization, I brought on Dr. Gleb to teach us entrepreneurs about how to best mitigate the issues caused by Covid-19. The presentation was very useful and everyone involved was highly engaged throughout the entire virtual learning event. He proved himself to be very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions - which was extremely valuable to our members.”
Ben Marvazi, Learning Chair, Entrepreneur's Organization Los Angeles
“Working with Dr. Gleb was a pleasure; he is both easy to work with and fully prepared to interactive discussion. I’ve now attended 2 of his talks and am very pleased with how relevant his information considering the current situation faced in our daily lives. He gives applicable suggestions which are easy to understand and implement. Our team of 70 was very thankful we had him speak at our Quarterly All Hands Meeting in June 2021. Many of them voiced how much they enjoyed the topic, and thanked (me) for scheduling someone of his expertise to discuss working remotely and returning to the office. Our Executive Team was especially willing to implement several of his suggestions in our office as we transition to a hybrid environment. I would highly suggest him as an expert in his field.”
Cyndi Lubrano, Business Manager, Auditor's Office, City and County of Denver
“On September 2, 2020, Dr. Gleb Tsipursky presented a webinar to members of Washington Finance Officers Association (WFOA) on the potential impact of the current pandemic COVID-19 for social and financial environments over the next several years. Although the news is somewhat dismal, it is very enlightening and realistic to prepare us for what we will need to anticipate moving forward. Dr. Gleb is very well spoken and presents his information in a user-friendly manner that almost anyone can follow and understand. His webinar presentation software was also very personal so you could feel he was in the room with you. He was very open to answer any questions. At the end of the presentation, I appreciated the fact that I felt better prepared to move forward and view the necessary changes in our day to day lives instead of waiting for it to end. He provided suggestions and solutions to how our environments will need to adapt for many years.
Administratively working with Dr. Gleb was very easy. He was well prepared, responded very quickly to our requests and was one of the easiest speakers that I have worked with.
I would highly recommend Dr. Gleb's presentation for all as the topic helps to understand personally as well as professionally changes that will be necessary in the future.”
Debbie Booher, Education Committee Co-Chair, Washington Finance Officers Association
“Dr. Tsipursky gave perhaps the best webinar I was involved with at RIMS. He engaged wonderfully with our members and his virtual presentation attracted a wider, global audience. I look forward to future collaborations.”
Justin Smulison, Business Content Manager at RIMS (Risk and Insurance Management Society)
“The Institute of Internal Auditors Los Angeles Chapter gives a big thanks to Dr. Tsipursky for delivering a 2-hour virtual presentation to our members on the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic: Adaptation and Planning via Neuroscience for Internal Auditors. The information presented was so fascinating and insightful that the 2-hour presentation flew by and our members were highly engaged and entertained throughout. During the presentation, Dr. Tsipursky discusses the very new topic of the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to preparedness and the ability of businesses to successfully adapt to the new socioeconomic landscape, and provides not only a problem-solution methodology tailored to the perspective of internal auditors, but also describes the behaviors and psychology around the choices and decisions that people make that can ultimately lead to a successful or failed response to the pandemic event. Some of the information presented was quite shocking and sobering to think about, but by educating ourselves, reflecting on this information, and being able to accept the possible outcomes, this will enable us to successfully navigate through the major disruptive event with the creation of viable plans and solutions. Again, our Chapter members and event attendees received great value from Dr. Tsipursky’s presentation and we look forward to learning more through his books and additional presentations to come. Our chapter also highly recommends Dr. Tsipursky to be engaged as part of your next virtual learning event, as this information is essential to all backgrounds and industries.”
Tina L. Harding, CIA, CRMA, Vice President of Professional Development, IIA Los Angeles Chapter
“Dr. Gleb made a presentation at our ASQ (American Society for Quality) Greater Palm Beach event, and I was very pleased with the presentation as well as the response from all the participants. Dr. Gleb made it very easy to plan and organize the speaking engagement, from setting up the Zoom, having information prepared, and then running the event which was exceptionally smooth and professional. He was prepared with very good presentation tools that facilitate his comfortable speaking style while holding our members attention throughout the whole event. The subject matter that Dr. Gleb presents is so very applicable to all areas of work-life, management, as well as personal life. He brings what can be a complex topic down to a level that everyone can understand. Dr. Gleb was a joy to work with. He will surely remain on our list of future speakers.”
Steve Cooper, ASQ (American Society for Quality) Greater Palm Beach, Chair
“Dr. Gleb’s presentation at our virtual webinar was very compelling! He tailored his research to my industry's current challenges while also making it really engaging. If you want a true professional I would strongly recommend Dr. Gleb for your future engagements”
Crystal Shipps, Manager, Education Operations and Development, MPI Academy, Meeting Professionals International
“As the Director of Education and Training for the Society of Government Meeting Professionals, it is my responsibility to identify and hire speakers for our educational events. In 2020, our face-to-face conference scheduled mid-May in St. Louis, MO, was cancelled due to the Covid19 Pandemic. We reduced our 3 keynote speakers and 7 blocks of breakout sessions to 5 virtual events for our members.
I was introduced (virtually!) to Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, and I immediately decided his message about the Covid19 Pandemic was timely and something we all needed to hear. There were over 350 individuals attending this virtual event. While our members were hoping for a positive outcome and the projection that everything will be ‘back to normal’ soon from this pandemic, Dr. Tsipursky painted an accurate and honest picture of the current and near future situation. I would highly recommend him for events when this topic is to be explored.”
Garland L. Preddy, CGMP, Director of Education and Training, Society of Government Meeting Professionals
“On behalf of the members of the ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter, I want to thank you for your insightful webinar presentation yesterday. We appreciate the time you took to prepare the two-hour session. Our members found the materials presented to be thought-provoking, engaging, and informative. The topic of the presentation Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Adaptation and Planning via Neuroscience for IT Professionals was in itself timely; it delivered the right message at the right time, when our members are looking for a trusted advisor to provide information that is non-biased and actionable. Your points on normalcy bias, planning fallacy, and hyperbolic discounting really hit home among the attendees. Thank you again for helping to make our educational webinars so rewarding and a most worthwhile experience.”
Wei Tschang, CISA CISM CGEIT, Education Committee Chair, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
“It was such a great experience to work with Dr. Gleb on his virtual Keynote. Each step was seamless beginning with the ease and professionalism in working with him, to the detailed preparation and quality of delivery. The audience obtained a thought-provoking interactive demonstration while receiving enormously useful, relevant content that offered an abundance of value. We look forward to working with him in the future. Thank You!”
Susan Harkins, Professional Development and Leadership, Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce
“Dr. Gleb was a fantastic professional speaker during our virtual meeting. His presentation and knowledge provided so much value to our chapter members and we have received a ton of positive feedback. He was well prepared and did a great job communicating and coordinating the effort. His presence was sharp and caught the interest of our members seamlessly. Dr. Gleb was very proficient in zoom and made presenting his slides alongside his video a seamless transition. Our members could hear and see him clearly, and had no problem following along with his slides simultaneously. Dr. Gleb's content was polished and easy to follow along. His questions and polls kept our members involved and engaged throughout the entire presentation. We would love to have him back to speak to our chapter again soon.”
Ashlee Simmons, Director of Online Programs, Project Management Institute North Alabama Chapter
“It was a pleasure for the Ohio Society of Association to have Dr. Gleb Tsipursky speak to our members virtually about the need for practicing strategic and realistic planning in light of the challenges presented by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic currently impacting U.S. businesses and the global economy. His message provided many hard truths that our members needed to hear in order to approach the pandemic honestly and with respect to its long-term effects. In addition to his virtual presentation, he has provided many great articles that the organization has used on our website and in our quarterly magazines that help nonprofit organizations prepare for crises. It was a pleasure to work with him and to help him connect to the leaders in Ohio's association community.”
Jarrod A. Clabaugh, CAE; President & CEO, The Ohio Society of Association Executives
“Dr. Tsipursky spoke at the California Society of Association Executives Building Capacity Summit on “Outstanding Association Leadership Through Social Intelligence” which our attendees thoroughly enjoyed. He was very engaging even through a pre-recorded virtual session. We received many positive feedbacks from our attendees and each one walked away with several key points that they can implement right away. I recommend Dr. Tsipursky if you’re looking for a dynamic speaker.”
Sina Tate, Director of Education, California Society of Association Executives
“We had a truly fantastic experience bringing Dr. Gleb to speak virtually to our ILEA members and attendees for another successful DEI Starting the Conversation program. Dr. Gleb's discussion around unconscious biases in our thought processes was incredibly informative and thought provoking while he engaged with the audience allowing the attendees to really feel a part of the conversation. The attendees had some great conversations post-talk in breakout rooms about the many points that were brought up allowing them to relate to what was said, from the Halo to Horns effect and especially the Optimism Bias versus Pessimism Bias. It was a pleasure to work through the program development with Dr. Gleb. We appreciated his time and professionalism throughout. We can’t thank Dr. Gleb enough for taking the time to talk to our group. I can confidently say that many people would like to learn more about how to integrate the tests he has developed into their businesses and personal lives. Hopefully one day we will get a chance to do this all again but in person and in front of a large audience.”
Tommie Murphy, VP of Education and Programs, International Live Events Association Northern California Chapter
“The Erie section of ASQ (0809), along with the student ASQ section of the State University of NY-Fredonia, had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Gleb Tsipursky for an engaging presentation entitled Defeating Unconscious Bias Via the Neuroscience of Emotional and Social Intelligence for Quality Professionals. This talk was well-organized, well-structured, and included planned audience engagement polls. The audience included both working Quality professionals as well as students, and we can attest that EVERYONE got something out of it. The students were interested in how unconscious biases translated into the “traditional” business disciplines, such as marketing, while the working professionals learned how to recognize and overcome biases for quality innovation and improvement. Dr. Gleb provided ample time to ask questions, and answered questions thoroughly and specifically, without the general responses often provided by speakers. Further, Dr. Gleb provided many complimentary resources to participants! Lastly, he was easy to work with, assisting us with logistics and delivery of the session. I, along with our group, highly recommend him!”
Lisa M. Walters, PhD, Treasurer, American Society for Quality, Erie Section
“As a trustee of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals (SGMP) Gilmer Institute for Learning it was my pleasure to work With Dr. Tsipursky on setting up his webinar: 'How Government Meeting Planners Successfully Adapt to COVID and Plan for the Post-COVID Recovery.' Dr. Tsipursky was extremely professional and diligent in communicating with the webinar team and providing timely information and assistance in preparing for the webinar. As a participant of his webinar I can attest to how timely and relevant his information was and how clearly he was able to present it to a wide demographic of participants. As a national leader with the SGMP I was impressed with how he could use his knowledge and insight to educate meeting planners and suppliers with the latest data on Covid and how it is and will impact the meeting industry.”
Henry Harper, Trustee of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals Gilmer Institute for Learning
“It was very easy to work with Dr. Tsipursky to set up his presentation. I received good feedback from members of the RIMS Utah chapter sharing how the information presented was helpful for them in their areas of responsibilities. The presentation was interactive, helping to keep people engaged.”
Mark Marshall, Vice President, Risk and Insurance Management Society, Utah Chapter
“Your teachings have made a world of difference to me, my mental health, and my ability to manage through the crisis. I can't overstate your impact - thank you!!!”
Kari Carlisle, Executive Director, Heritage Square
“Gleb Tsipursky presented "Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Adaptation and Planning for Business Continuity Professionals" as part of the ACP (Association of Continuity Professionals) ongoing webinar series. It is my privilege to host these webinars and I have been doing so for over a decade. Gleb's presentation was among the best to date in terms of getting people to adapt alternative perspectives of planning assumptions, dealing with major changes and disruptions, etc. Great presenter and great, thoughtful content. And he's a delightful guy, too!”
Dr. Ed Goldberg, CBCP, ACP Webinar Host, National Board member, Treasurer and Executive Committee
“Dr. Tsipursky was very well received by the Los Angeles Section of the American Society for Quality at our online meeting in August 2020. Our group of Quality Assurance professionals lead problem solving and corrective action teams in a variety of industries. His topic, "The Neuroscience of Avoiding Decision-Making Disasters" , reminded us "what keeping an open mind" is all about. He has a very engaging way of putting questions out to the audience and including them in the presentation. We had many great comments of appreciation for his presentation that evening. Thank you, Gleb!”
Muriel Susaki, Program Chair, American Society for Quality Los Angeles
“If you think a topic like neuroscience and its application to business decisions would be boring, you haven’t seen a webinar by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky. His was one of the most informative and interesting webinars I have seen in a while. Engaging, to the point, and above all useful.”
Dirk Dusharme, Editor in Chief, Quality Digest
“THANK YOU very much for an engaging and informative virtual session. I enjoyed the polling to hear more from attendees. The Q&A was also insightful.”
Erin Oyama, Programs Director, Project Management Institute, Hawaii Chapter, Honolulu
“Dr. Tsipursky’s secure and composed approach and style gets you thinking. The engaging virtual presentation, modified for our professional organization, allows you to easily identify possible pitfalls in your own group. We also learned the challenges may be successfully dealt with once identified. The presentation, materials, and information contained therein enabled our attendees to bring improvements back to our individual firms. Thank you for the insight and tools to address these potential roadblocks.”
Dr. Tyler F. Patak, NCARB, AIA, MBA, CPD, LEED AP BD+C, Vice President, American Institute of Architects, Florida Southwest Chapter
“Gleb did a great virtual talk for the Leadership Greater Washington board before our strategic planning conversations. While the organization has done a brilliant job pivoting over the pandemic, in striving to become of greater value to our members and increase our impact on our community, we need to constantly challenge our thinking on how to most effectively achieve our purpose. Gleb's insightful content definitely set us on the right track to do that!”
Mahan Tavakali, CEO Strategic Leadership Ventures & Board Chair, Leadership Greater Washington
“Our association thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Gleb's virtual presentation. It was informative and thought-provoking. Furthermore, as a group of professionals dedicated to managing technology risk, we found that his analysis translated directly to the language of our profession and provided actionable takeaways for our members. The feedback from our members was overwhelmingly positive, and I would highly recommend him for a presentation.”
Rob Valdez, President, ISACA South Florida
“Dr. Gleb Tsipursky’s virtual presentation on the Coronavirus Pandemic Adaption and Planning for our local PMI (Project Management Institute) group was outstanding. He logically presented the optimistic, moderate and pessimistic estimates for having a solution to the virus using common PMI concepts. Some key statements included
- People are too optimistic
- This is not the same as the recession in the 80’s
- Never go with your gut feelings (typically wrong)
- We will shift to new norms over time
- Continuity plans don’t work for pandemics
Also, I had no idea there was pandemic insurance. Great deal of valuable information was presented in a fast and deliberate manner. Time for questions provided at the end. I strongly recommend this presentation!”
Linda LeSage, VP Professional Development, PMI Michigan Thumb chapter
“Thank you for taking the time to meet with our HR group! The virtual presentation was informative, objective, and flowed very well. The ability to reference back to the recorded presentation on YouTube, as well as your published materials on Amazon are also extremely helpful. During this pandemic, we’ve all been overwhelmed with information, and a message to ‘plan for the pandemic.’ What made this presentation helpful to me was that he provided the answer to the big follow-up question I always have – ‘Okay, so now HOW do I plan?.’ I need steps! Gleb gave me a starting point, steps, and some clarity around what a pandemic planning process for HR professionals looks like.”
Jonathan Rhodes, HR/Accounting Manager, Indica Labs
“This webinar was a sobering evaluation of how the meetings & events industry must and can prepare for the next couple of years. It is all about the mind set of the attendees, not how we create a safe environment. It becomes a chicken / egg routine. Continued dialog and discussions needs to keep the evolution front and center for attendees and planners. Thank you!”
Leandra Almodovar, Meeting Manager, PlannerNet
“Powerful content + thoughtful delivery. Dr. Tsipursky is smart, thorough and a terrific presenter who shared with our exclusive private group of Transformation Leaders - the blueprint for the road ahead in the post pandemic world. While the information he shared is scary in terms of the longevity of a likely pandemic world for our loved ones and our work, I believe it is important to see with a business planning lens. Through his dialogue and excellent humble way of answering questions, he helped business leaders in our meeting understand the kinds of things we ought to be doing right now - to prepare ourselves for success and adaptation of our business ahead in the years to come. Terrific speaker. Good content. Credible. I would highly recommend hiring Dr. Tsipursky as a keynote speaker for your virtual event or meeting.”
Bob Miglani, Founder and Managing Partner, Embrace the Chaos
“I truly enjoyed what you presented that made me reconsider how to proceed with PMI MTC chapter. As the current President of the chapter strategic planning is critical and you presented things to consider long term in light of COVID-19 pandemic”
Anita Kenworthy, PMI MTC - President
“Thank you for a most timely and most valuable virtual presentation that is very actionable for CEO’s and their companies to implement. Highly recommended for all growth minded companies.”
Tony Lewis; Master Chair, Vistage
“The webinar was really great. There were some key points such as the external business model which were very insightful and I'd like to revisit. You packed a ton of useful info into such a short session, well done.”
Arthur Linke, Founder & Managing Principal, Turricula Risk Advisory; Research Fellow, Stellenbosch University Business School
“This was an excellent presentation regarding the current response to COVID19. It was very eye opening as it caused me to look at the short as well as long term solutions in ways I had not yet considered. While the answers may be hard to swallow and not easy to achieve, realistic solutions rarely fall into the easy category. The sooner we start thinking realistic, the more effective we can be at managing the risk.”
Mark Lopez, Senior Risk Manager, Petra Risk Solutions
“Special thanks to Gleb Tsipursky who presented virtually to both of my Vistage CEO groups this past week on the very important subject of decision making. It is one of the three pillars of Vistage: better leaders, better decisions, better results. All three are always relevant and important. #leadership #decisionmaking #results”
John Trakselis, Vistage Chair
“Dr. Gleb is a pleasure to work with as a speaker. He is very responsive and thorough. The audience found his virtual presentation to be very timely and relevant.”
Juliane Cooley, Speaker Lead, Project Management Institute Mile High Chapter
“Your presentation exceeded my expectations yesterday. I’ve been on the chamber’s Keynote committee for years including several as chair. Your presentation was one of the most informative ones we’ve ever had. I placed an order for your book “Never Go With Your Gut” and am looking forward to reading it. With a long career making loans and other staff management and client related decisions in my job, I think I’m pretty good. But one is never too old to learn a better decision making process.”
Bill Sheffer, Vice President of Business Development, The First National Bank and Trust Co. of Newtown
“This webinar completely changed the way I am thinking about the current COVID-19 pandemic and will influence my strategic decisions going forward from "weathering the storm" to adjusting to the new reality.”
Rob Clark, Risk and Claims Analyst, Kitchener City Hall
“We appreciate the virtual presentation made by Dr. Tsipursky to the Fort Worth HR membership. He is truly an expert in his field and made the presentation engaging in a virtual world.”
Mary Ann Fulgium, 2020 Programs Director, Fort Worth Human Resources
“On May 18, 2021, Dr. Gleb Tsipursky presented a virtual webinar to ASQ Vancouver. We had a really fantastic experience bringing Dr. Gleb to speak about ”Defeating Unconscious Bias Via the Neuroscience of Emotional and Social Intelligence for Quality Professionals.” If you are a company that is seeking a speaker to address cognitive biases that result in problematic behaviors impacting diversity and inclusion within an organization and a company's bottom line, contact Gleb. He will be able to provide you tools, resources, and proven science-based techniques that can increase motivation and engagement in the workplace to result in a healthy working culture in your organization. He was well prepared, responded very quickly to our requests.”
Peyman Basirian, Program Chair, American Society for Quality, Vancouver Chapter
“We’ve had the great pleasure of working with Gleb. He’s been wonderful to work with, easy to communicate with. He helped us to work within our budgetary limitations and was very effective in his presentation. Gleb is very relatable. He communicated in a very clear and easy to understand way, very clear key takeaways that people could utilize in their personal life and as well as the campuses that they are supporting.”
Zenobia Hargust, the Director of Equal Opportunity and Engagement at Swarthmore College
“Gleb worked with us collaboratively during the whole process before the day of the event to get feedback on what’s important in HR and on all areas of success and pitfalls. He presented what was important to the audience, making the event great. The presentation that he gave had a great impact on the audience because it brought real experiences to their mind, giving them takeaways that they can go back and implement back in their everyday lives in HR.”
Robyn Salvo, Director of Human Resources at Monmouth University
“We hired Gleb to speak at our Leadership Conference in 2018. I found Gleb to be very personally relatable and we were able to get concrete information so we could utilize better decision making. Gleb also incorporated many of the issues we are having in terms of internal communications because we are growing so quickly and he incorporated that into his speech and we found that to be hugely useful. I can tell you that one of the things that I gleaned from the presentation was a better way of decision making around the fact that people often go with their gut when the reality is they need to be asking themselves some more specific questions.Your gut is not always telling you the right thing to do, which is contrary to what we all think, so it’s really useful information. I highly recommend Gleb.”
Kara Cermak, Senior Vice President of Learning and Development at RealManage
“Gleb presented to members of the National Association of Women Business Owners. He spoke to us about common pitfalls of decision making and how we may avoid them. His interactive presentation provided many takeaways, even for the solopreneur and microbusiness owner. Of particular note was Gleb’s depth of knowledge as evidenced by how thoughtfully he tailored his message to an audience of female leaders.”
Susan Lear, President/CEO, Balance Employee Assistance Provider
“EWI is an engineering services consulting firm. We contacted Gleb to acquire some insights in how to motivate scientific people to ‘sell’ themselves – a constant challenge of the business. Gleb used his researched-based approach to behavioral psychology to engage us in a conversation that provided several very helpful insights into how we communicate with our people. We were using far too much business-speak that was not connecting emotionally with our people. For example we have stopped using the word ‘brand’ and now use the word reputation – which resonates with scientists. So I have to say that one of the things Gleb said to me – I am not an engineer and have never been an engineer – but I work in human resources. And he started talking to me about emotions. My first response was: “engineers have emotions?” And he went on to teach me that engineers – scientists – although they like to think of themselves as rational animals, still are primarily driven like the rest of us by emotional thinking and emotional responses to language. Gleb has been an unexpected and practical resource for us.”
Mark Matson, Vice President of Human Resources at EWI
“I will never approach decision making the same again. You gave me some wonderful insights on cognitive biases and how they influence our decisions. I plan to use your premortem process with my team and our board. I am also eager to do more research on cognitive biases. Very interesting. Thank you again for valuable education that will support my work.”
Teresa Trost, Executive Director of Community Shares of Mid Ohio
"I attended a seminar called 'Emotionally Intelligent Organizations' with Dr. Gleb and found it immensely helpful. He provided a lot of great practical tips on improving daily interactions with co-workers and people in your life in general. He gave you a way to think and situations where you should not use your gut which I found interesting because I always say “Go with your gut.” I am going to try and turn that around and think of things differently now because of this seminar."
Natalina Fickell, Community Relations & Associate Programs Specialist at an insurance company
“We received a very insightful, engaging presentation from Dr. Gleb Tsipursky on avoiding disasters in the HR and Payroll professions. I think our members will take away a lot of great skills to apply every day at their jobs including how to avoid payroll errors, how to manage pre-mortem discussions and how important they are, especially if we are having major projects, and many many more skills. I think they also like the fact that we had plenty of resources to take with us, including his book and additional resources that were provided during his presentation, as well as the great exercises that we did today as part of the seminar.”
Dana Chambers, Senior Payroll Manager at Wells Fargo
“Gleb Tsipursky spoke to a room of Vistage members and guests on avoiding disasters through science-based decision-making. I was glad that Gleb provided my members with decision-making strategies that combine cutting-edge research with pragmatic business case studies.
From the start, Gleb made the presentation highly relevant with local case studies and topical recent events -- and by asking each audience member about the decision-making challenges they face, and then working with these examples. Gleb took many opportunities to connect his content to the audience's knowledge and had extensive group interactions where audience members worked with each other (with Gleb's input) to solve specific problems that their organizations faced.
The audience was highly engaged throughout, asking extensive questions and taking many notes on the highly-organized handouts provided by Gleb. From the commentary of audience members during and after the presentation, each gained a number of take-aways that they were excited to bring back to their organization and implement.
As a meeting planner, I can attest that Gleb is great to work with: he communicates clearly and thoroughly, provides all the relevant materials such as bio and handouts in a timely manner, arrives early to set up and greet attendees to make them comfortable, and in general does everything that you would want a speaker to do. I look forward to organizing future presentations by Gleb for other members of my Vistage groups, and can recommend him wholeheartedly as an excellent speaker.”
Artie Isaac, Vistage Chair for Central Ohio
“Dr. Gleb Tsipursky presented “Help Clients Avoid Disasters Through Science-Based Decision-Making” to the International Coaches Federation of Columbus. He responded to every request I made for documents, etc., immediately. His presentation style is warm and engaging. His presentation and slides were excellent. Even the most senior coaches (25+ years coaching experience) were really surprised and impressed with the information he gave us. Several want to see him again, and some even want an all day training session! He is a snap to work with, has very interesting scientific information, and is a delightful presenter. I highly recommend him!”
Eleanor Meekins, Owner at Eleanor Meekins & Associates
“Our community leaders benefited from Dr. Tsipursky’s expertise, presentation, and insights during a Columbus Foundation Nonprofit Forum. We collaborated to bring a “Science of Decision Making” presentation to the Central Ohio nonprofit community. The content was delivered in a digestible way that covered high-level theory, while also providing tactics and tools that could be immediately implemented. The audience had very positive feedback, and I was pleased to be able to offer the content, and expertise to the sector.”
Dan Sharpe, Vice President, Community Research and Grants Management
“The entire Leadership Team of Synergy National was very impressed with your presentation. Your remarks and insights were excellent and set the tone for a meaningful and productive meeting. As a result, we were ‘working from’ from a common foundation and mindset and I feel that we accomplished more during our Leadership Retreat than we would have, if you had not presented your material. So, for that…..our sincere gratitude and appreciation!”
Diane Wingerter, founder of TradeShow Doctor
“Gleb applies the discipline of his research to the practical tools he has crafted for effective decision-making. CCODN benefited greatly from his expertise, as well as his clear, thought-provoking and interactive facilitation. He is both learned and passionate — well positioned to enlighten and guide organizations to growing their effective decision-making capacity. We are glad he is part of our learning community.”
Peggy Wibble, SPHR, Organization Effectiveness Expert and Leadership Coach
“This is a must for everyone who calls themselves a professional coach!
Dr. Gleb’s “Coaching the Analytical Mind” is a winner! This fun and engaging presentation enabled me to gain an in-depth understanding of how the analytical mind works, how to build trust using evidence-based strategies, and applying these strategies to deeply connect with clients who are analytically-minded. What I appreciated most about working with Dr. Gleb was his upbeat style, knowledge, compassion, and unique ability to breathe life, excitement, and relevance into the scientific principles. Dr. Gleb under promised and over delivered- a hallmark of Dr. Gleb’s work. I encourage the reader to sign up for the next offering!”
Dr. Eli Shur, Director, Elemental Coaching and Consulting
“Dr. Gleb Tsipursky recently presented at IPMA-HR. He is a thought leader, researcher and engaging speaker and author. He provided not only the research but also the application in the workplace. His presentation was very well received and appreciated by myself and our members. Thank you Dr. Tsipusky.”
Mary Rowe, Human Resources Director for the Oregon Metro
"I heard Dr. Tsipursky speak at both a Columbus Metropolitan Club Forum and a HRACO Conference. I was impressed both times. I left the conference session in particular with several action steps, and have been especially surprised that he's followed up with me on those steps to provide further assistance as I try to apply what I've learned from him. I highly recommend Dr. Tsipursky as a very knowledgeable expert in his field who teaches people how to actually put knowledge into action after his presentation."
Kelly Atkinson, MBA, Diversity & Inclusion Coordinator and Office Administrator at Barnes & Thornburg LLP
"The takeaway from Dr. Tsipursky's presentation that I continue to use and have included in my position as a corporate educator is to remove the emotion and feeling from a situation and deal directly with the facts and evidence based information. This is particularly useful in my discussions about incident reporting and disaster preparedness."
Melissa Campbell, Corporate Director of Education & Development, Bloom Senior Living
"If you are a company that is seeking a speaker to address cognitive biases that result in problematic behaviors impacting diversity and inclusion within an organization and a company's bottom line, contact Gleb.
He will be able to provide you tools, resources, and proven science-based techniques that can increase motivation and engagement in the workplace to result in a healthy working culture in your organization."
Babiya Polk, Aflac Agent Team Leader
"I first met Dr. Gleb Tsipursky at the 2018 annual ASHHRA (American Society for Healthcare Human Resource
Administration) in Pittsburgh. I attended his session based on his book, The Truth Seekers Handbook. His knowledge and ability to tie scientific data to real-world human behavior outcomes was insightful.
This led me to secure him for two sessions at our annual CTSHRM Leadership & Management conference. As the CTSHRM Programs Chair, we wanted presenters with solid presentations and unique abilities of relating to our audience.
Gleb has a practical approach combined with a one-of-a-kind sense of humor. His sessions are chock full of
actionable information attendees can utilize within their organizations. He invites attendees to think outside their comfort zone and explore truths that may challenge what attendees know or how they operate.
Lastly, Dr. Tsipursky is professional, well organized, and highly responsive in communications. Your event would find him a valuable asset along strategic lines and an essential addition to any event lineup."

"Dr. Gleb’s presentation on Coaching the Analytical Mind was both informative and highly interesting. The content clearly illustrated his expertise on this unique subject matter. He is a delight to work with and his speaking style makes him accessible and relatable to the coaching community."
Beth Schofield, Head Of Speaker Selection, World Business and Executive Coach Summit
“The Good Lab worked with Gleb to understand his philosophy and approach through his 4 key components to living with meaning and purpose. These 4 components were used as a framework in our innovation workshop, to identify new and massive commercial opportunities that could help people live with meaning and purpose. Gleb helped convey this framework in an accessible and engaging manner to our charity partners and industry experts, who responded well and used this framework to generate a multitude of ideas for commercial opportunities. Gleb’s combination of scholarly expertise around meaning and purpose, and savvy in understanding how to tie people’s needs and desires to commercial opportunities, was crucial to achieving our outcomes.”
Laura Williams, Head of Front-End Innovation at the Good Lab
“Dr. Tsipursky, I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at the SHRM conference at Tarleton yesterday. It is very obvious that you are highly intelligent, but you brought the information down to a level we could all understand. I really like it that you walk around and look everyone in the eye. That makes the information stick that much better. The five question card will go with me to teach Principles of Management. It looks like it would work well in every-day situations."
Jodie Dearing, Graduate Program Manager in the College of Business Administration at Tarleton State University
“We were dealing with a serious conflict between two team members about perceptions of broken trust and potential disclosure of confidential information. We turned to Disaster Avoidance Experts to consult with us on addressing this issue, with the intention of confronting the team members to investigate the disclosure of this information.
Gleb helped make us aware of the underlying emotional drivers of the two team members, particularly feelings of alienation, which would be worsened as a result of a confrontation, and potentially result in a valuable employee leaving. As a result of this consultation, we decided to move forward without a confrontation, instead focusing on addressing the feelings of alienation. We were glad that the employee who we were going to confront took it upon themselves to reach out to the other team member and mend fences, and now they're in a better place with each other.
We are grateful for Gleb's insights into the emotional perspectives of the two team members, which made us better suited to deal with this situation, and retain a valuable employee."
Cindy C. Winters, Principal at Eagle Commercial Realty Services
“Gleb’s insights as a coach are invaluable for those who want a dose of reality relative to COVID-19 and the timeline and implications we can expect. The information he shares fill in some gaps and offers fresh perspectives that we should all be aware of and prepare ourselves for. His are not popular views, and may not be what you want to hear; but his research and insights are what you need to hear to be more informed — and come to your own conclusions relative to the impact on your business."
Kelli Richards, President, The All Access Group LLC
“Dr. Gleb’s coaching was very helpful to address the challenge of how to spur innovation that can improve quality and boosting productivity. Dr. Gleb shared with me about the optimism bias and the pessimism bias, which helped me understand the mindsets of both groups of teams’ members and facilitated my efforts to get both to be appropriately innovative. Those insights helped me enhance my Document for Innovation, helping define for both groups the expectations for innovation: finding opportunities for improvements without too much expense or too drastic changes. That will support both groups feeling more comfortable to engage in meeting the expectations for innovation."
Fernando De La Torre, Director of Quality, Viking Air
“Dr. Gleb is passionate about his work in helping companies and people avoid making the wrong move. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to team up and brainstorm ideas. Leaning on his expertise, knowledge and wisdom helped me make an important executive decision. His servant leadership style is rare coupled with his strategic insights on how to solve problems is above the best!"
Tarsha Henderson, Regional Manager, LendingTree
“I really like your coaching style. You ask meaningful questions without 'leading the witness.' It's a great fit for executives."
Cheryl Smith, Global Director of Talent Management, Organizational Capabilities, and Diversity at Xerox
“If you’re a leader who needs to make tough decisions and manage difficult change, you won’t find a better trusted adviser than Dr. Gleb. His advice proved critical for navigating through a major merger that involved integrating two distinct organizational cultures and structures into a unified whole. If you turn to Dr. Gleb for advice, he’ll provide you with the best practices on major change management and post-merger integration customized to your leadership needs. That comes not only from his extensive consulting experience and the practical hands-on knowledge he developed there, but also his top-notch expertise in recent research, which helps ensure that his advice represents the cutting-edge of evidence-based business practices. It’s lonely and stressful at the top as a leader managing a major change initiative and integration: Dr. Gleb will serve as a trusted adviser, mentor, and peer for you, bringing you confidence and helping you feel cared for and understood. He’ll offer you a balance of an empathetic listening ear at all times, a source of tough love and constructive critical feedback when you need it, and an objective, supporting, and dependable sounding board for your leadership goals. It’s surprising how he can combine warmth and care with first-rate smarts and practicality, all delivered with tact and compassion. His guidance not only helped me set my company on the right track to the long-term future by navigating through this merger, but also empowered me to grow as a leader: I’m sure he’ll do the same for you. For example, Dr. Gleb helped me realize that while my democratic and participatory leadership style served the company well during times of stability, it did not serve well during times of major disruption and change. He taught me to adopt a visionary style more suited for such times to inspire my team to pursue a vision of our company’s bright future through the slog of difficult change. Dr. Gleb also developed my ability to coach my staff in taking initiative in solving the many problems that arise during such change, rather than relying on me to provide them with the answers. I would strongly recommend Dr. Gleb as the top option for a trusted adviser for any leader navigating major change, making tough decisions, and creating breakthrough results."
