RAY McELROY PROGRAMS & TOPICS

To Boldly Go - Stepping Out From Ordinary to Extraordinary

In Ray's presentation, To Boldly Go... Stepping out from Ordinary to Extraordinary, he will discuss how ordinary people with average talent accomplish extraordinary things. Have you ever wondered what separates those who experience success versus those who constantly find themselves falling short? Ray will answer the question: How does a person, a company, or an organization BOLDLY GO where they have never been before? How can we step out from an Ordinary place to an Extraordinary existence both personally and professionally?

What a person sees, what they say, and what they show in their actions are all telling factors in their ability to take their professional and personal lives to the next level. TO BOLDLY GO is a program that dives right into the heart of a person's perceived reality, exposes the effects of negative self talk, and inspires both organizations and individuals to create momentum towards greatness; daring to achieve, accomplish, and boldly go where others around them have never gone before!

Courageous Conversations - Cultivating Greater Empathy and Racial Unity Within the Workplace

The reality is White Americans come from a different world than African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, etc. So how can we not only learn how to co-exist in the workplace, but how can we grow to have a greater understanding of where we are similar and a better understanding of what makes us different and how even our differences can be an asset to moving our company forward while we grow together as human beings.
