He has a passion for communication. It shows.
An accomplished speaker, writer, and media and presentation skills coach, Jim Gray works with clients throughout North America — always with a single goal in mind. It’s to help each individual communicate with clarity and power, like a leader. “I consider myself an assistant storyteller,” says Gray. “I help senior executives, physicians and public figures create and convey information that’s strong, concise and meaningful.”
A former journalist with The Toronto Star and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Gray has been counseling clients on their communication initiatives for more than 20 years. During that time he’s conducted hundreds of focused, practical media and presentation skills sessions with achievers from every sector.
The Principal of Media Strategy Inc., a boutique public relations firm, Gray serves on the faculty of the Canadian Management Centre. He contributes articles on communicating effectively to The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, and speaks regularly on communication issues.
His first book, How Leaders Speak, published by The Dundurn Group, is available at bookstores across Canada. A proud son of Nova Scotia, Gray is a graduate of Acadia University.
