SHINE THE BOOK

"This book is full of great ideas, wisdom and advice on how to be a better communicator and leader."
Jack Canfield
Co-author The Success Principles™ and Chicken Soup for the Soul®


"Gerry Lewis is a great communicator. Now I know why. Read this book, then try out some of Gerry’s very practical tips. I wish I had read this book 30 years ago."
Clive Briault
Senior Advisor, KPMG
SHINE. Stand Out. Get Noticed. Be Brilliant is the brainchild of Gerry Lewis. In it, Lewis documents what he has learned and what others have shared with him over the past 30 years about communicating, about connecting with people, and about how we can become better in our day-to-day lives. In SHINE, Lewis divulges the soft skills and tactics that will allow you to communicate your way to a brighter career. These are not taught in school, and often not even in the workplace, and yet are essential for success. Unlike some other business guides that are full of jargon and unrealistic instructions, SHINE provides simple and practical advice and tips that can be applied in the workplace immediately.

Most of us want to get noticed at work. Noticed by our peers, our supervisors, our managers and senior management. Being noticed for the right reasons can help us in our careers. It has for mine...

So, what do we need to do to get noticed when everyone (and I do mean everyone) is running at a pace that only seems to be getting faster, and there seems to be little time to differentiate ourselves? Is there a secret?


See what the Gerry Lewis Inc. team has on their wish lists this year.
See where Gerry has travelled throughout 2016!
A common question around the office is, “Where is Gerry right now?” His work has taken him to over 50 countries around the world, and this year alone he’s made it to 11.

I was feeling a whirlwind of emotions. I guess that is how you feel when you know the biggest and most challenging adventure of your life is about to begin. Out of almost 500 applicants for a job position at Gerry Lewis Inc., I was selected. To me, that meant: new boss, new colleagues, new city, new country, new winter weather… new everything!

You see, I was born in Tabasco, Mexico – yes, like the chili sauce...

What is your favourite thing about working (and owning and being president) at Gerry Lewis Inc.?

No two days are ever alike. Between the diverse clients, wide range of projects and problems to solve, and people we interact with, each day always has some element of surprise to it...

Meeting Magazine, 2015
A meeting is like technology: When it’s working, it’s great! When it’s not working, everything grinds to a halt, and even the smallest task takes what seems like forever to complete.

While IT issues are beyond our realm of control, we have complete control over whether a meeting is a success or a failure. One of the best measures of the success of a meeting is participation by all attendees...
