"Gary McKechnie is a speaker of extraordinary talent, who manages to engage and entertain his audiences, whether they be on a luxury cruise ship or in a middle school. He talks with authority and experience on a broad range of subjects, from motorcycles to rock and roll to Americana and the history of America. Gary impressed me with his fascinating repertoire of subject matter, I hired him to come on board our luxury ships, and did not regret my decision one bit. His talks were a hit!"

"It was a pleasure to work with Gary. He took time to learn all he could about our organization and his audience prior to the event. He also kept completely calm and came through for us when things ran way ahead of the schedule and he had to pop on stage cold. I remain grateful for his kindness and professionalism!"
