Jerry is not a ‘motivational’ speaker, nor is he an ‘inspirational’ speaker – although the countless projects he’s been part of are both motivating and inspirational. Jerry is a dedicated “Meetings Buster” with over 30 years of experience of working in the trenches with some of the world’s most transformational business leaders.
He brings to his workshops real life experiences, an honesty that is fresh and welcome and most importantly, a sense of hope that things can get done… quickly. Participants leave his workshop fully equipped to tackle opportunities and predicaments with an easy-to-implement system.
Jerry has over 34 years of practical experience helping groups tackle some of the messiest predicaments they face. An extremely gifted ‘questioner’ and even greater ‘listener’, Jerry has been sharing his practical techniques that accelerate ideas into action since August of 1978.
Pat McNellis is a gifted facilitator and all-around expert when it comes to planning systems and coaching. Pat has been working with his father, Jerry McNellis, helping to develop and refine the productivity solutions McNellis is famous for. Pat works as Jerry’s primary assistant, but also takes the lead during sessions as a co-facilitator.
Pat has a special knack for working with groups to leverage their most creative, focused thinking. He helps Jerry manage every aspect of each unique Institute, and is also responsible for creating a number of McNellis knowledge products, studies and systems. He credits Compression Planning®, and his desire to “dig for the uniqueness in every situation” as a foundation for his success.

In his free time, Pat enjoys raising his twins Logan and Lauryn with his wife, Stephanie.
