Sheldon Bowles  

Entrepreneur, Author

Sheldon Bowles is a successful entrepreneur, New York Times and BusinessWeek best-selling author, and noted speaker. He began his career as a newspaper reporter, became vice president of Royal Canadian Securities, and then president and CEO of Domo Gas. With his partner, Senator Douglas Everett, he built that company into one of Canada’s largest retail gasoline chains. At a time when competitors were going self-serve, Domo swept to success featuring “Jump to the Pump” service with Gung Ho! employees.

After leaving Domo, Sheldon and three partners turned a small manufacturing plant into a multimillion-dollar business. Sheldon now shares his hard-won knowledge of what works and what doesn’t with audiences around the world and in his books, Raving Fans, Gung Ho!, Big Bucks!, and High Five!, all coauthored with Ken Blanchard.

Sheldon has been called “a customer service legend” by Harvey Mackay, “a master motivator of employees” by Bob Nelson, and “a stimulating and entertaining speaker with great take-home value,” by Ken Blanchard. Audiences find him thought-provoking, inspirational, and fun. Business colleagues describe him as having a passion for win-win thinking, action, and success. Friends testify to his ability to pluck humor and life lessons out of any situation.

Sheldon has worked with such diverse companies and organizations as PacifiCare; Avis; Young Presidents’ Organization; Tenneco; The United States Army; Merrill Lynch; Morgan Stanley Dean Witter; Great-West Life; ARAMARK; The Cresta Group; Builders Square; the International Carwash Association; Omni Hotels; Standox; W.L.
