The McNellis Story

When Jerry McNellis’s innovative father introduced him to a book* on creative thinking, Jerry’s mind and spirit matured and blossomed with knowledge and determination.

At the age of 12, he led his first structured creative thinking session, and the results were telling. Charged with the task of raising $40 to buy equipment for a Boy Scout camp, Jerry’s insights led the kids in his patrol to raise $400 – ten times more than the original goal.

By the age of 28, Jerry was mentored by one of the most creative minds of modern times, the creator of Displayed Thinking for Disney, Mike Vance. And Compression Planning® was born.

Jerry’s specialty is helping organizations cut through the clutter to laser in on a strategic target, and develop an action plan quickly and effectively.
