Book Gary Bradt

- As the leading speaker around Dr. Spencer Johnson’s best-selling book,
- Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life, Dr. Bradt has shared with thousands the message of “adapt and ignite” to—not just deal with change—but embrace it.
- Dr. Bradt engages the heads and hearts of his audiences around the challenging discussion of adapting to change using masterful storytelling, humor, simple exercises and solid content.
Executive coach and change expert Dr. Gary Bradt has two words of advice for success during tumultuous times: adapt and ignite. For nearly 30 years, he has been helping organizations adapt to new technologies and government regulations, think innovatively during industry consolidation, adjust to mergers, acquisitions or reorganizations; and work with customers and employees to embrace new products or services.
Dr. Bradt launched his career in the late 1980s with a consulting group that helped clients initiate strategies and processes to turn change into opportunities. In 2000, he gained national attention when Dr. Spencer Johnson, author of Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life, chose him as the leading speaker on that subject. The book sold more than 20 million copies worldwide and gave thousands of people the opportunity to experience firsthand Dr. Bradt’s ability to cut through their fear and frustration around change, and deliver powerful tools that would help them adapt during change.
As an executive coach, Dr. Bradt takes a straightforward and direct approach as he works with both the people and the business. He offers practical steps leaders can take to improve their effectiveness, as well as the effectiveness of their people and the organization. Just like with his speaking, his goals are practical and positive behavior change. He has one agenda—to move leaders and their organizations forward and help them accomplish their goals.
Dr. Bradt earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. He earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from Hahnemann University and Hospital in Philadelphia, which honored him with the "Excellence in Professional Psychology" award in 2007. Dr. Bradt is author of The Ring in the Rubble: Dig through Change and Find Your Next Golden Opportunity.
Because change also happens in personal lives, when appropriate, Dr. Bradt delivers a powerful personal message about one of his toughest challenges—dealing with a child’s chronic, life-threatening illness.

(Event booked by Speakers Platform)
Thank you for the absolutely fabulous presentation you did last week. It was more than a home run. I guess the bases were loaded and you hit a home run. They just haven′t stopped talking about the quality of the presentation and the impact of the presentation. Our goal of arming the organization with some practical doable things at the end of the presentation was clearly, clearly well met.
In short, he was great -- perfect for our theme of "Change and Opportunity...” And, for what it′s worth, very approachable and someone who seems like a very good guy. I would strongly recommend him.
– AstraZeneca Canada
He was an incredible speaker. What I really liked was the actual tools he gave us to use. All too often speakers tell you to do something but not how to do it. It wasn′t just an abstract lecture, but a fun, inspirational, how-to event. Really enjoyed it.
–Medical Group Management Association
It′s rare that you can take home more than one good point from a one day course, with yours there were too numerous to name. Thank you for a very enjoyable and fulfilling day.
–Annie Penn Memorial Hospital
The group LOVED you and your message. Personally, I learned so much from you that I applied immediately in both my professional and personal life. Thank you for helping us create such a memorable program. -Actelion Pharmaceuticals
I would like to personally thank you for taking the time and effort to be a part of our National Sales Meeting last week in Montreal. The feedback to your presentation on Monday evening has been everything from ′Fantastic′, ′Awesome′, ′Wow′, ′Very thought provoking′, etc.
– GlaxoSmithKline Canada
I have actually used Gary to work with my teams 3 times…. I have never met anyone that wasn′t touched by Gary′s message and his approach. I actually sent his book to everyone in my family…. I really can′t imagine a group that deals with real life issues daily, that is under tremendous stress and that wants to do a better job wouldn′t love Gary′s message and his delivery.
- Harland Clarke
Gary was one of the best speakers I′ve heard or contracted in my 18 years with NCL. He was outstanding and resonated fully with the audience. We would absolutely like to utilize Gary′s talent at other upcoming meetings.
– Norwegian Cruise Lines
A ten on a scale of ten. Gary’s presentation had relevant topics that captured the attention of our audience. Very positive response overall from our attendees, and our CEO was exceptionally pleased with the level of professionalism and forethought placed on the session′s contents.
- Marine Corps Community Services
This year’s NA LIM was the highlight of my PMI career to date, and it was due in very large part to your professional, inspiring and thought-provoking keynotes – our leaders responded exactly as we had hoped would be the case. You were without doubt the finest keynote speaker I have ever had the privilege to work with, and I hope very much that we have future opportunities to work together.
– Project Management Institute
Excellent. Way beyond my expectations. I wish you could have heard the feedback I was getting. Life change took place today.
– Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware
Dr. Bradt is an excellent presenter, and his metaphor of the ring in the rubble opened my eyes to situations, present and past. I have used it almost daily with life situations and it has provided me a greater understanding of why things happen as they do, and the purpose behind them. His book is fabulous too.

The Ring in the Rubble: Dig Through Change and Find Your Next Golden Opportunity
Change always creates hidden opportunities. A leader′s job is unearthing them. In The Ring in the Rubble, change authority Gary Bradt reveals the secrets to moving beyond the rubble of disruption, fear, and uncertainty that change often creates, to finding the golden ring of opportunity that always lies beneath.
Each chapter of this breakthrough book delivers a powerful principle for leading change, supported by engaging real-life experiences of the author and other well-known business executives that illustrate how to put principles into action. Bradt asks penetrating questions that help you dig deeper and pinpoint the best ways for applying these principles to your specific change effort.
You will discover how Richard Schulze weathered a devastating event that threatened to destroy everything he′d worked so hard to build-and became the founder of Best Buy in the process. You′ll see how a 65-year-old man, nearly broke after having suffered a string of disastrous setbacks, dug through the rubble to emerge as Colonel Harland Sanders, who remains the face of Kentucky Fried Chicken to this day. Change itself doesn′t dictate the eventual outcome of your situation; how you think about and handle change is what makes all the difference. You′ll never find the ring if you don′t start digging!
