He has also been featured on CNBC, MSNBC, Bloomberg TV, and in The New York Times, Entrepreneur, Costco Connection, and Success Magazine. Gallo has built a reputation for transforming leaders into powerful storytellers and communicators at the world’s largest brands including: Accenture, Allstate, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Chevron, Cisco, Coca-Cola, Disney, Ford, Google, HCA Health, Hyundai, Intel, Kaiser, KPMG, LinkedIn, McKinsey, Medtronic, Microsoft, Pfizer, Salesforce, SAP, Walmart, and many others. Gallo’s books are also required reading at some of the highest levels of the U.S. military where leaders are training the next generation of team commanders.

Tripp Crosby

Tripp Crosby puts smiles on the faces of millions as a comedic host, inspirational speaker, and content creator. He’s most widely known as the director and taller half of Tripp and Tyler, a world famous YouTube sketch comedy duo who’s shorts have amassed over 60 million views and made headlines on some the world’s largest publications (Today Show, Late Show, CNN Headline News, Huffington Post, Mashable). You might be familiar with their most popular sketch A Conference Call in Real Life, which is arguably the most influential workplace comedy short in internet history. In 2016 Tripp directed and appeared with Tyler in four episodes of TruTV’s Late Night Snack, and they are currently developing their own unscripted travel related television show.
