“This is our company’s second year in sponsoring RC at our local high schools. We sponsored 2 schools last year and 5 this year. I have seen the presentation more than 15 times with various presenters. I just wanted you to know that the presenter we had recently was superb. Bryan Gallinger really got to the kids and teachers. I continue to receive positive feedback about the event. His honest and heartfelt delivery made a lasting impression with those who saw his presentation. I’m just blown away by the impact made at those two schools.”

Not only does he put others first in his personal life he also does this in business as he strives to help those he works within so many respects. His company produces a wide variety of projects and their products always result in excellence. His professionalism and sincerity is something you just don’t come across very often. He has so much passion and it really reflects in the quality of work he does. If you’re reading this and you’ve got the opportunity to work with Bryan I highly recommend you jump on the opportunity. It will be a winning scenario for you.”

“Bryan has been exceedingly helpful in building a great network of connections for me and my ideas, mentoring me in the ways of entrepreneurship, and consulting on branding for several ideas that are in the pipeline! On top of that, he has helped me hone several skills that I needed to improve upon: time and project management, goal setting/keeping, and personal branding. Thank you for all the hard work, diligence, and consistent communication (hard to find these days)! I will definitely continue to work with Bryan for years to come.”

“Over the span of nearly a decade, I have always found Bryan Gallinger to be an excellent friend and business partner. His attitude and loyalty are of the absolute highest order, and he always strives to put others before himself. Bryan works tirelessly to complete projects, often staying up late into the night to meet a deadline or complete a project. It’s my pleasure to give Bryan my absolute highest personal and professional endorsement.”
Professional musician singer/songwriter “Jet Black Stare”, from Vancouver BC
“I met Bryan in 2002 when he filmed my band at The Roxy in Vancouver BC for Xtreem TV. As a friend and a biz partner I have nothing but great things to say about him. He has always been the type of person to go the extra mile for you and would put his needs aside if he thought it could help someone out. After years of wanting to, I finally got to sing on some tunes with his band IDLEMINE. I will continue to be his close friend and as well be associated through business etc. In short I wish there were more people like him in this world cuz it simply would be a nicer place to live.”

“I met Bryan several years ago when he was recommended to me by a colleague as an Associate Producer for a feature film I was producing, due to his extensive network and relationships with high impact investors and executives. Needless to say, he successfully connected the dots and the rest is history.
After meeting Bryan and finding many shared values and interests – including the often elusive yet essential integrity and transparency in our industry, AND a love of live music. I knew it was the beginning of a very strong professional relationship and friendship.
Bryan operates with a uniquely balanced combination of heart, passion and wisdom. He innately infuses a highly ethical, positive and playful attitude to everything he does and is also one of the most reliable and capable producers I’ve ever worked with. He sees the big picture as well as the smallest details, and works efficiently and effectively with any deadline. He is always highly organized and professional, with excellent communication skills and timely responses. His decks and deliverables are always beautifully crafted and spot on, and his social media and marketing prowess is helpful to any project.
Bryan is adept at managing small and large teams, and has been my go-to conflict manager in many instances on and off set. My experience with him in any setting is that he’s at ease, calm and level headed and always finds ways to make others feel the same. His excellent relationship and conflict management skills, along with his zen attitude in the face of mounting pressures, earned him the nickname “Yoda” – a moniker that has carried on with every group and set he’s worked on.
I know I can count on Bryan to show up – early – and tune in with an intuitive sense of people and situation. I trust him completely with sensitive information and topics, both personal and professional.. and he’s even become The Godfather to my pups who love and adore him.
Bryan is adored and respected by everyone because of who he is and the intrinsic positive value he brings to any professional situation. I cherish our friendship and look forward to many collaborations with Bryan in the future.”

“Many people in my life look up to me because I am a doctor. Some think I have accomplished more than most do in life just because of my profession but I have always dreamed of doing much more and being much more in my life. The day I met Bryan, I never expect that I will meet someone who will inspire me so much. He inspired me with wisdom towards different situations in life. I asked him what the dream promoter meant and boldly asked him if he had any advice for me. After many conversations of him listening to my dreams and goals, he gave me advice that will change me forever. He taught me to have a vision and then how to line my life up with that vision to make it happen and rise to a higher level. He taught me to have clear goals and to be committed to my vision. He taught me to know what I want to achieve. He taught me to make a quality decision to get the best of my life and be the best I can be. I had big dreams but I had no idea how to achieve them but because of his name thedreampromoter, with his experience and knowledge of giving advice based on reality and wisdom I see myself running faster towards a specific direction of my vision. I use to see other people making to do lists but I always kept lists in my mind and therefore I tend to forget many things. Bryan showed me the importance of to do lists to plot my course on a piece of paper and proceed along it as quickly as possible. Some of the things he taught me I heard before or saw others doing but it never clicked. Bryan took time patiently to explain things again and again, showing me different ways until I got it. No one has ever done this before for me. He taught me to focus, to be specific and to discipline myself in all areas of life. Because of discipline and focus I realized to prioritize necessary things and discard unnecessary things that block my way towards fulfilling of my dreams. He taught me to write a plan for achieving each goal and setting deadlines for the attainment of each. I learned to humble myself towards individuals and to humble myself to God and to pray for each goal. He recommended many great books. He showed me to have a confidence in God and have faith in every situation and never give up. Something he taught me is “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise” Proverbs 13:20. Thank you Bryan.”

“The thing I love about Bryan is that he always operates with a big heart and pursues his passions with intentional focus and effort. Any time we’ve had the chance to work together on a project not only has he and his company delivered on his promises, but they delivered on time and with a product that one can be proud of. Grassroots Network did the branding for our surfboard company back in 2006. If you get the chance to work with Bryan consider yourself lucky. He is the tide that raises all ships.”
Professional Musician and Ironworker – Salt Lake City UT
“In my 20 plus years of business partnering with Bryan Gallinger, we have been very successful. We might not always agree on everything but we always come together in compromise and come out ahead. He is always completing tasks on time and under budget, along with great people skills exposing our business in full. As a personal friend we have a great brother-like friendship. We are always having fun even if it’s in a negative environment, and keeping each other in positive state of mind. Bryan always tries to be there for you (even if it’s not possible) and is an all-around great friend.”

“I had the fortune of getting to know Bryan while working on a few film projects together. Right out the gate I saw how well organized he was and well spoken. He prepared me and my group of fledgling producers every day with questions, knowledge, and fresh ideas. When there was a problem to solve he was like a Yoda in that I swear he could achieve anything just with his words alone. It’s like he said it and it got done. Pure bliss. He brought all of his industry knowledge to the table from his years as an entrepreneur, marketer, and business start-up maker. His spread of skills and capability mixed with a level of hard work you rarely see come together to make a well oiled machine, while still leaving enough room to make the work fun. I can only hope to work with him again as he is an asset to every venture he enterprises and can’t recommend him more.”

“It is my pleasure to recommend Bryan to anyone looking to advance and expand his or her business. Bryan has not only become a key player in my career success, but also a personal friend and mentor. Bryan’s leadership qualities and commitment to success make him an invaluable addition to anyone’s team.
Bryan’s ambitious work ethic is indisputable. Within hours of our first meeting, Bryan quickly sent out a Google document for our project; color coordinated with to-do lists and notes, in order of importance. It was very refreshing to see that I was aligning myself with an individual who was even more organized than myself. Bryan is a natural leader. Having thoroughly studied the art of psychology and communication, Bryan has the amazing ability to captivate the room with his words. Bryan’s communication skills are unbelievable. His dialogue is clear, calculated, and confident. It is my hope that I can learn from him and speak with the grace that he does someday.
I put a lot of time and energy into my projects – acting and writing are my biggest passions in life. I find comfort in having a dependable and professional team member, like Bryan, who goes above and beyond to complete projects in order to bring our dreams to fruition. I genuinely trust and value Bryan’s opinion, and as my career continues to grow, I hope to continue to work with and learn from him. Bryan’s energetic personality, coupled with his efficiency and professionalism, would be a great asset to any individual or company.”

“I met Bryan in 1991. Over the last 20 years, he has been my neighbor, a friend to my family, a business partner and a mentor to me. Something that I have always admired about Bryan is his courage to pack up and leave to go explore new adventures or to help others. He is willing to take risk, go into the uncomfortable and put others first. He is not afraid to go through trial and error to find what is needed. His heart is one of the largest I have ever seen, his desire and passion for people and helping others is incredible. Bryan taught me to be all I can be, to never settle, to walk tall and that searching for success is ok as long as it is you that wants it. I have watched Bryan persistently pursue his goals sometimes against great odds for 20 years. Somehow he maintains a good attitude, always includes others and remains humble and so loving to others. I remember the first time I saw him perform with his band and I was impressed with his talent but I will never forget the first time I watched him speak to a young audience sharing Rachel’s Challenge and seeing hundreds of lives being changed cause he chose to do that instead of so many other options he had. He always put 100% into what he does even his friendships and relationships. Bryan works harder than most but he also works smart, this is another thing he taught me to do. I personally know of dozens of people that Bryan has helped succeed and asked nothing in return. I am proud of who Bryan is, the character and integrity he shows as a man. He is a true gentleman and knows how to make others feel incredibly special. He touches people and leaves an impression that they can’t forget, words can’t describe it but it is special. I am blessed he is such a close friend to me and to my daughters.”

“When I first met Bryan, my first impression was that he had already lived life to the fullest at 35 years old. I didn’t think he would want to converse with a shy, soft-spoken and least exciting person like me so I was hesitant to approach him but I had heard great things about his coaching so I found courage to contact him. I was afraid that I couldn’t afford expensive coaching but I knew it would be worth it if I could change. The first thing that Bryan told me was that I needed to be 100% honest and open so he could best help me. I was embarrassed but I told him that I didn’t have much money and that I needed a lot of help. For some reason, Bryan generously helped me and didn’t charge me anything. He spent many hours and sessions counseling me and to this day I don’t know why. I learned a lot from him and he seems to genuinely enjoy helping people. I was surprised but when we met I have no idea how he does it but I felt so comfortable that I was able to share my innermost thoughts with him instantly. I can’t talk to some of my closer friends and family like this and here is this stranger getting me to open up. He listened intently without being judgemental. He sensed things about me that I couldn’t describe and he also saw good qualities in me that I didn’t yet see in myself. He was extremely truthful yet kind with his words and I couldn’t believe some of the things he knew about me within 30 minutes of meeting me. Bryan made me realize that I can be compassionate and continue being special in my own way but also showed me how to avoid letting people take advantage of me because that is one of my weaknesses. I often sacrifice too much for others. I thought my compassion was a bad quality somehow. He showed me ways to stay kind and giving but also how to strengthen myself to stop letting people walk over me. He shared things that really changed my views in life. He showed me how to be more productive with my time, how to set goals, how to manage my time, how to communicate, when to draw a line and how to find balance in my day. I asked him to show me how to be a better person and how to create a better life for myself instead of just waiting for something to happen in it. He gave me the courage to do something I had wanted to for many years but I was afraid to take the risk and go out of my comfort zone. He showed me how to use just minutes in a day but consistently how to slowly and consistently become that better person. Even after our coaching ended, he continues to believe in me. Sometimes he will check up on me and hold me accountable to some of my goals. I didn’t have money to hire Bryan for his advice and he wouldn’t have accepted it if I did and he didn’t ask for anything in return. He gave me some powerful life and relationship advice. He also suggested a list of good books that I am now reading and learning so much from. Thanks to Bryan’s advice and encouragement, I now live in another country, I am studying and working abroad which was my dream. Through all of this, Bryan helped me strengthen my faith and to utilize God as my resource for guidance and grounding. I think God works through Bryan to help people and I am sure others would say the same.”

“I can sum Bryan up very succinctly: diligently committed to execution. Once you work with Bryan on a project you will want to have him involved with every project that comes up. With a wide array of skills and talents, he can relate across multiple workspaces, international borders, and all personality types. He has an innate ability to immediately connect with people and clients to put them in a space to share, collaborate, and function at their top levels. A real master in marketing, branding, and business development, his ability to project manage multiple people on any size project is unmatched. I have never seen someone with a better work ethic and organized focus. Consider yourself lucky if you get to work with him on anything!”

“I met Bryan Gallinger in 2002. I was fortunate to attend one of his social events he put on with business partners and friends. I was blessed by the ability Bryan had to create the environment for people of all backgrounds, cultures and career interest, to come together and build relationship. He has a gift in producing events whether it be a small gathering in home, a large event in public or a specific event for business. He does it in a way that those attending can enjoy life, learn something, meet other amazing and like-minded people while also moving forward in life in general. At the time I was struggling to get back on track in life and sometimes didn’t feel worthy of the association around me but Bryan went out of his way to always make myself and others feel welcome and equal. I was trying to have belief again that my dreams could happen. I know that Bryan has overcome challenges, everything from a health challenge to business partners abusing him and the ups and downs of the entertainment industry. I was empowered again to stand up, to not take my problems to serious and find away to fight through it to victory. Bryan and the group of people he surrounds himself with really helped me elevate my thinking and I developed relationships that were of positive influence. Bryan shared his vision of a Positive Hollywood, which really connected with my passions in music and media. To see someone who did not just talk the talk, but actually get up and walk the walk was amazing to me, and I needed this example around me. I saw Bryan serve others, even during health challenges. He sacrificed time, energy and finances to empower others in life. His ability to be transparent and real, connected with people, and I saw him attract and influence many. Bryan helped me enjoy life again, even as challenges came. Today, my dream is alive and well, I often wonder where I would be if he hadn’t played such a role in my life. I’m now working with youth, have my own businesses, and starting a family with balance. Bryan taught me to learn to develop financial streams to support my vision, and how to harness creativity and not be afraid to be different in my endeavors. Bryan did everything he did with a superior excellence. When you see his work, you always see quality, and when you meet him, you meet a genuine down to earth individual, who is always moving forward and has compassion for others to move forward as well. No matter what situation they come from, he doesn’t judge a person and he somehow pulls out greatness in them. I witness him elevate the skills and quality of life for dozens of people over a few year period. Bryan is first class, and I am fortunate to have met him.”
