Working with Dr. Ray Blanchard has been one of the defining events for my life and career as a trainer, leader and teacher. He has a style that taps into the best in people and he brings a vast background of knowledge and experience. I trained with him intensely for roughly three years, and after facilitating many trainings myself, I can say I draw on those times quite often. I am grateful to have experienced the gift that he has been for me and for so many.

Ray, in my assessment, you and your team have created a larger container of transformational leadership, which is boundary-less. All youth, young adults, students, public safety professionals, coaches, trainers, teachers, parents, government workers, IT specialists, spiritual leaders, etc. can rewrite a different story for themselves... I am experiencing an interdisciplinary approach, which is inclusive of self-care evidence-based practices, embodiment for peer support, nurturing and discovering ways to be full participants in teams and communities, respectively and leading transformation. Thanks for caring and giving your gifts to humanity.

Ray Blanchard has impacted my life. Period. I came to him to learn to be a transformational trainer. That came true and I have been able to travel the world sharing, working with folks in many ways. But, becoming a trainer became the least important part of our work. He helped to shape me into a man that can be the husband, father, brother, and friend that I am. I am eternally grateful for Ray Blanchard and the gift he is to the world.
Trainer, Coach, Counselor and Consultant
Dr. Ray Blanchard is an artful and meaningful mentor whose TrainUPForum is ‘spot on’ and directs the participants along the pathways of achieving the core competencies required to deliver professional and effective trainings. Dr. Ray Blanchard was one of my most ‘inspirational’ mentors and his style of delivery and the depth of his knowledge made it possible for the learning to sink in deeply and stay put. The TrainUP Forum is more than a class or workshop; it is a pathway to greatness, with ‘pearls’ of wisdom and understanding that I have been able to apply in every aspect of my life, both professionally and personally. While presenting trainings and workshops or consulting and coaching, these lessons have stayed with me and enabled me to reach levels of success that surpassed my imagination while I was a ‘trainer in training’.

I believe the statement, “I feel honored and privileged” is over used in our industry. Having said that, I have known Dr. Ray Blanchard personally for approximately 15 years and known of him for more than 25 years. I have worked with Ray in the same training room in several occasions. I truly felt HONORED AND PRIVILEGED to be co-training with Ray. His work ethic combined with his knowledge and creativity is an awesome gift that he has shared with thousands of participants. Even above all that an authentic caring and commitment to “make a difference” with the people he interacts with is abundantly clear, which I have found to be a rare asset among many trainers and consultants.... It is clear that Ray has worked extensively to create a path for others that are interested in continuing to “make a difference.” I highly recommend Dr. Blanchard as a Trainer/Coach/Consultant to learn from.

Dr. Ray is one of the most compassionate, perceptive trainers I know. He empowers each of us to be the very best expression of who we are by embracing and celebrating our highest selves. His training is subtle, elegant and fun.

I was commercial pilot at Mexicana Airlines when I decided to become a coach with Dr. Ray Blanchard. It was spectacular! If you are thinking of being professional, this is the right place or, I should say, the best place to become a professional trainer. Ray is a legend...love and gratitude!
Coach and Business Trainer
Ray Blanchard was an extraordinary mentor in my development as a trainer. He was masterful in seeing and nurturing my strengths as well as spotting the areas where I needed lots of support and growth. He challenged me when I needed to be challenged and never hesitated to rigorously hold the line. He taught me to stay grounded in service, and how to keep my heart open. He also showed me the importance of remaining centered even when students were reactive during their own process. Ray is a true master who lets the training be created through the space he provides. He showed how to be spacious, and in that, how to embrace my ego while not letting my ego run the show. He modeled passion, service, commitment and compassion in a way that transformed me and how I saw myself as a trainer. He championed and encouraged me whenever I felt like giving up as I was losing faith in myself, seeing the enormity of the task. He was tough and gentle at the same time, holding the space for the possibility that “I would be a spectacular trainer.” He would say that time and time again. I am very grateful for his mentorship and love. Thanks to his commitment to me as a trainer I have now been able to be in service to tens of thousands of people around the world.

I'm from back in the good old days of Lifespring. You were my trainer and also my mom's trainer. I know the work was powerful back then, in the nineties, but I had no idea how deep, lasting and power it would be in my life until today at 74 years young. Lifespring usually did not announce who the trainers would be because they knew everybody loved Ray and would wait to sign up for your training. Someone let it slip that you would be the trainer and my mother... jumped on the first thing smoking to be in your training. I enfold you in my deepest love. I dwell in possibility! Thank you.

Meeting [Ray] at the Lifespring Advanced course changed my life forever and I still feed off the inspiration and discoveries I had in that training. He was the catalyst for me to get my life back and start to have and live my dreams. I love Ray Blanchard!
