Greg has been invited to speak about Service in different contexts with audiences of different ages & in different industries. He has spoken about Community Service & Volunteerism (i.e. Overlake School's Service Day), Public Service (i.e. Mayors' annual Youth First Breakfast in Minnesota), Service to Seniors (i.e. an event for Village on the Green staff) & Customer Service in the travel/hospitality/F&B industry (i.e. MAC at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport hosted a luncheon where Greg spoke with people who work in different parts of the airport about their interaction with guests). In almost all cases, the talks have revolved around a similar theme - looking at the seemingly 'small', oftentimes overlooked acts of service & kindness that can spark a larger impact over time. He has spoken about Service at schools (i.e. EP Middle School's Annual Day of Giving), colleges (i.e. University of Connecticut), private events (i.e. General Mills), conferences (i.e. National Service-Learning Conference) & award ceremonies (i.e. Conference for NonProfit Excellence Awards Luncheon). The events have taken place in different countries (i.e. LORNA Conference for nurses in Canada). He served as Scholar-in-Residence for a service-related program in Africa. In some cases, he has been one of multiple speakers at an event related to service (i.e. in one instance, Greg & Nobel Peace Prize honoree Elie Wiesel were the two speakers. In another instance, at an annual (nonpartisan) event at a hospital honoring people for volunteerism, Greg & Michelle Obama were the speakers, and organizers ordered copies of Greg's book for everyone in attendance). The books & posters based on Greg's story have been used internally &/or externally by a variety of service-oriented organizations (i.e. Generations Against Bullying), chapters of charities (i.e. National MS Society, Habitat for Humanity, AmeriCorps & I Have a Dream Foundation), organizations that specialize in travel/tourism/hospitality service (i.e. Visit Santa Rosa, Greater Des Moines Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hotel Airlane) & restaurants (ie Bistro Provence). Service-minded organizations (i.e. Midland Care) have participated in The First Thirty Elevator Project (a project in which the book is used to recognize people for 'small' acts of service, kindness & inclusion). Many organizations that serve Seniors around North America have utilized the books with their own staff or residents. For his own Service & Civic-related efforts, Greg received the Jefferson Award for Public Service & was named one of America's Daily Points of Light. For his efforts related to Customer Service, he received an honorary degree in Hospitality Management. His service-related efforts have been featured by media like Volunteer Leadership and The NonProfit Times. The TV show, Good Morning America, buried a Time Capsule which chronicled the first 100 weeks of ripple effects that grew out of a small act of kindness Greg committed in the community where he lived. At times, he has written for the media as well - including articles about Service (& Hospitality).
