Navyy veterans and life-- long friends, Gerry Carew and Allan Dale, were used to from their nautical backgrounds. These incredibly strong and persistent winds can feel very tumultuous, but when you come out the other side after having gone through them, it’s smooth sailing. A perfect metaphor for a brand born during a global pandemic, where the only goal to start was to create a podcast that featured positive and uplifting conversations with business leaders and change-makers to INSPIRE. Mission accomplished. In fact, Gerry and Allan were so successful in spreading optimism, telling great stories through real conversations, and sharing inspirational content, that companies began taking notice and hiring them to create content for them. GALE FORCE WINS expanded, and in addition to its well-known podcast, it’s now a media company producing content for companies to tell their people-centric stories and help them win with employees and consumers.
An optimist and connector who acts with urgency, can only see opportunity, and won’t easily take no for an answer. His Unfair Competitive Advantage is three and half decades of global relationship development across governments, industries, and academia coupled with a burning entrepreneurial spirit and a natural ability to tell a story.
A lifelong seeker of what inspires others. Over 30 years in advertising sales created an insatiable curiosity about what makes people tick. From radio to newspapers to video to digital advertising it’s always been about the people behind the businesses that truly makes things work.

Nothing compares to the fulfilling feeling of being around families and friends expressing love for each other on a wedding day. Gale Force Wins isn’t a wedding but it’s a marriage of positive and inspiration that just makes sense.
