Grant’s presentation on “Branding YOU” was timely providing simple steps to change the trajectory of your career or business strategy, starting with knowing your value, and investing in “SELF” or Business, helping individuals highlighting the uniqueness that differentiate themselves among the crowded marketplace. Foremost be willing to invest the time in creating the narrative about you our your business both online and offline. “What would your legacy Be, what would they say about you, and importantly what is the impact you’re making in your family, community, and country.”

I came to know Grant several years ago through a mutual affiliation with a professional healthcare organization. Since that time, I have found Grant to be a man of impassioned professionalism and integrity.
He has an innate sense for bringing relevant, high demand content to his target audiences. I was honored to be included on a Brand podcast series Grant created and hosted last year. The opportunity to work closely with Grant is both fulfilling and uplifting, and I recommend Grant and the services he provides without reservation.

Dr Mauvareen Beverley – Executive Physician, Patient Engagement & Cultural Competence Specialist

The 5 STAR BDM website creative process has more of a classic design with collaboration rather than a la carte choices. However, it still retains a modern look and blends in quite well with my brand, which is relatively new with new speaking engagements. The digital footprint is comparable to other 5 star personal brand websites I’ve seen, which was a relief to me as I have limited website experience. It’s quite informative, and we love the ease of use which allows it to accommodate all kinds of viewers

Putting together a website is a task, finding the right company or individual is even more complex. I did my search around looking for this particular company that has the ability to create, design and optimize my web site. Thanks to Grant at 5 STAR BDM and Stacey , not only do they have great taste in design but they can guide you through the process and determination. Our website looks great and functions really good.

Grant has lead the NAHSE Florida Chapter to new heights during his presidency. He has increased the corporate visibility of our members and created new avenues for pipeline leadership throughout the State of Florida.


Bernadette Vincent – Former COO of Mednax

I am honored to provide this professional reference for Grant McGaugh. About two years ago, I met Grant at an afterhours mixer co-sponsored by the American College of Health Care Executives (ACHE) and the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE) in Southern Florida. Grant has an awesome personality that is inviting and helpful. After a great conversation about both our backgrounds, we discovered ways he could help my company achieve some of its business priorities. I decided that we should have him formally introduced to our CIO with my support.

My continued work with Grant through NAHSE South Florida activities and projects has led to my learning of additional opportunities Grant has accomplished. Grant coordinated and orchestrated educational and mentoring programs for Health executives throughout southern Florida. Many executives from hospitals and health care systems are familiar with Grant’s follow-through, committed ways of approaching a business need for an organization.

I also learned Grant is a Platinum Member South Florida HIMMS- He has enjoyed serving on a committee to provide C-Level input on technology trends in Cyber Security, Mobility and Predictive Analytics to improve the patient experience in South Florida healthcare. In support of the Triple Aim, Grant also served on a Healthcare Committee for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. This Committee’s mission was to provide technology input on county initiatives surrounding Population Health and Precision Medicine applications for the Miami/Dade Community .

I am proud to provide my recommendation that Grant be considered among other health care professionals to work in the field of knowledge management.


Leah Carpenter – Chief Executive Officer Memorial Hospital West

Please accept this letter on behalf of Grant McGaugh whom I believe would make an outstanding leader for any organization. I have worked with Grant on developing the South Florida Chapter of the National Association of Healthcare Executives for the past year, and he has been instrumental in helping to bring together the community for leadership development, community service and business development.

As a member of the Senior Executive leadership Council for NAHSE South Florida, Grant has worked successfully to grow membership, foster innovation and secure sustainability for the chapter through his relationship with community hospital organizations such as Memorial Hospital West. He was worked to expand the Chapter to not only encompass South Florida but to now include the entire State of Florida.

It is truly my pleasure to recommend Grant McGaugh for a professional leadership position within your organization. His high level of expertise, self–confidence and excellent leadership skills make him invaluable to any organization. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss Grant‘s qualifications in more detail.

I had the pleasure of working with Grant while I ran sales for the Florida market while at Zones Inc.

I was most impressed with his ability to win the confidence of top C Level Executives and effectively communicate and deliver value. Grant navigates large complex deals in a methodical and systematic way. I expect that Grant will continue to transform companies in the future with his vast knowledge of IT…. and specifically how IT can drive positive business outcomes in the Healthcare Sector.
