Gary Ware
WDS X (2022) Speaker

“Remember who you were before the world got its hands on you.”


Gary encouraged the WDS community to shift our thinking and unlock dormant playfulness in order to live out remarkable lives. The world doesn’t have to be a proving ground, it can be a playground of possibilities.
