Craig W. Ross
Craig is CEO of Verus Global, a four-time book author, executive coach, facilitator and a sought-after speaker.
“For any company to DO more, their employees must be equipped to BE more.”
Get ready to get real—quickly. That’s all Craig wants to do. He’s less interested in talking about the what that must be done. Instead, his passion centers on the how we can deliver what we already know must be achieved—and in ways that make people, their families and our world better.
Craig’s singular orientation centers on strengthening leaders by developing better people who connect brilliantly with one another. It’s Craig’s belief that the vast majority of organizations already possess the human greatness necessary to succeed. What’s necessary is to activate and connect this humanity, so your team is functioning as one.

SAMPLE SPEAKING TOPICS:
Few things turn Craig off more than listening to well-intentioned people talk about what they think is important while ignoring what really matters to people in the room. So, you won’t see Craig do this to others. Therefore, you can expect Craig to ask a lot of questions before he steps in front of your team; he works tirelessly in advance, because he’s seeking excellence in utilizing the opportunity presented to him to make a difference for you and in the world.
As mentioned in his biography, Craig’s specialty centers on equipping teams to do the how necessary to deliver their what. Long ago, Craig threw away the menu of topics clients could choose from, because he found himself tailoring the content to just about any leadership, team, culture or talent topic clients were bringing to him.
