As Programs Committee Chair, I arranged for Dr. Gillam to speak about leadership to the Old Town Alexandria Connections (OTAC) business group at one of our regular bi-monthly meetings at Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, VA. Dr. Gillam not only provided several useful tools on effective leadership communication, but she did so at a TED Talks-level of quality with clarity, authenticity, and a (personal) story, all of which created a compelling and memorable message for the attendees.

On behalf of the Blacks in Government National Training Institute, I want to thank you for participating in this year's conference. Since your How to Lead Without Alienating, Bullying, or Destroying Your Team Workshop was filled to capacity, that meant that the content was obviously needed by our attendees. Thank you again, for an outstanding workshop.

When my colleague and I met you at your book signing, we knew that we needed to do whatever we could to get you to come and speak at our annual training conference. Words cannot begin to describe how pleased we were when you accepted our invitation. Your superb presentation met everyone of our training objectives. Using your leadership game as an ice-breaker just sealed the deal. We had people who would normally never be engaged in training just so thrilled to be at the training. Thank you again!

Col (Ret) Mary Gillam was my Director of Information Technology and the CIO for the Air Logistics Center at Tinker AFB, OK. She is a servant leader, who focused on the employees, ensuring they had what they needed to be successful. Col Gillam took the time to walk around and talk to her employees treating them with respect while asking questions to understand what they do in order to provide better support for them. She empowered her employees which allowed them to bring their best and be autonomous in their decision making. Col Gillam listened to her employees and ensured that each voice was heard while providing a clear vision and mission of where she wanted the organization to go. Her ability to develop teams to accomplish the mission is an amazing trait as a leader. I am grateful that I had a chance to serve under Col Gillam’s leadership.
