The Big Picture Guy

Google him. It's easier than listing credit.  But, all credits add to is "experience", and that's what Gary and Outlier bring.  Experience is the result of living, not just achievements. 

 

Gary has logged 38 years as an actor, director, writer, producer, restaurateur, advertising executive, politician, and columnist, and those experiences conspire to work on your creative needs.  But even those credits pale compared to being a father, brother, son, husband, and community volunteer.

 

"Good creative," said Kroeger, when asked to come up with a quote for this bio, "is creative that works."

"We have spent a lot of time looking for the right fit to work with us on copywriting. Enter Outlier. We presented the concept, gave a deadline, and the idea was executed with some of the best writing we have seen. The client approved the script right away and we were on to production well within our scheduled date. It's nice knowing we have a partnership with a company like Outlier that will eliminate the copywriting bottleneck that we have been experiencing in the past. I'm excited to see how our creative evolves now that we have a partner like Outlier to work with."

"Improv to Improve provided outstanding training for our team.  Gary really highlighted some useful and simple techniques that we could easily incorporate into our daily routines which has made a big difference in the way we communicate and work together.  Our team really enjoyed the training and felt they left with some new and creative strategies to use in the workplace.  We will definitely look to Gary for future training.  I would highly recommend Improv to Improve for your next training session, without hesitation. 
Thanks Gary!"

"I worked with Gary on a speech for over 200 people in the Cedar Valley.  Going into the coaching, I was thinking I would just get tips on how to stand, or which words to emphasize, but Gary provided so much more!  Gary not only helped me with my delivery, but he helped me craft my message by listening to what my intent should be and he then provided examples and ideas on how to do it well.  By working with Gary, I was able to see a master of delivery at work, which inspired me to do my best and come up with a compelling and memorable speech.   Thank you, Gary, for your time and commitment to me and my speech!"
