He's also collaborated on programming for several ABC and CBS television shows.

Berry hosts his own podcast (recently migrated from terrestrial radio WDTK Detroit) which has two distinct segments. "The People's Voice" featuring current events, in a point counterpoint format and guided by the principle that people can disagree without being disagreeable. "The Success Factor" segment focuses its spotlight on successful non-profits as well as corporate enterprises.

As an entrepreneur, Berry demonstrated a strategic style of management by building a multi-million-dollar brick-and-mortar business. In 1995, his business expanded to the clicks of the Internet, causing him to adjust his marketing skills to where they soon proved exceptionally well-suited to the new and radically different online arena. He operated several remarkable brands, including Flower Delivery Express, a $60 MILLION DOLLAR world-class business servicing millions of customers in over 150 countries. After a 40-year career, he divested himself of all business interests in 2016 and retired to follow other interests.

Wes spoke at Warren Rotary February 5 and gave a super excellent presentation. He was animated, interesting and very informative. The interaction with his audience was remarkable and enjoyable. Several members stayed after the meeting to continue discussing his book and especially commenting on his humor. Sincerely, Janet Loch, Warren Secretary

Mr. Berry visited our Rotary Club as a guest speaker. He gave each attending member a copy of his book, "Big Things Have Small Beginnings" and then proceeded to give a very engaging presentation about life's lessons and how anyone can benefit by changing their thought processes and perspective. I felt that he was an exceptional presenter who maintained excellent rapport with his entire audience. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an outstanding program or keynote speaker.
