"Gary is not a boring person, he just gets excited about boring things - like steam! Although I have not always shared his passion, after attending a couple of Gary's training sessions, one cannot help but to develop a fascination as Gary engages and guides the group through the evolution of steam and its effect on industry. By the end of the session you will not measure steam in KG's (or #'s), but in $'s, which is always the driving factor in any industry."
