Wayne Barringer Bio:

In 2018, he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. This transformative experience changed his focus on leadership and how to help people at work on their climb to fulfillment and excellence. The lessons he learned on Kilimanjaro helped Wayne turn a very dark and detached team at Boeing from 52% employee satisfaction to 90% in three years. 

While At Boeing he leads their marketing Creative Studio of 100+ employees. Prior to that Wayne worked at multiple ad and PR agencies, including Porter Novelli, Webber Shandwick, BlackWing Creative, and GreenRubino. 

Since then, he has helped teams from billion-dollar companies such as Hasbro, Cognizant, UKG, universities such as UW Medicine and Jackson State University, non-profits, small companies, and more. 

His life's mission is to guide those who want to achieve more peace, fulfillment, and impact at work - in corporate environments that have never been more dynamic, detached, and (often) dysfunctional.
